Tigers and Gala
A live body painting piece that I did at Union Square as part of a profile piece and interview for Prosieben, a German TV station.
This was another reproduction of Dali’s painting: Tigers and Gala.
The painting process took about 3 hours in 3 locations. We had to move a couple of times because the park supervisors at Washington Square and Union Square parks first said that we didn’t have a permit, then changed their story to “being to close to a playground”. They made us move across the street to an area where there were couples with little kids.
Special thanks to the model for this painting, Julia, who maintained a positive attitude throughout the whole experience although she had to battle the cold weather. I also would like to thank her father, Ed, who came to support us was also a great addition to this experience.
