Fake Basquiat #1

Posted in Art by peterchunmaowu on February 12, 2010

I couldn’t sleep last night so I decided to just start randomly drawing which helps me relax.

I used to enjoy drawing all day long when I was little, but now I find myself scared to pick up a pen if it’s not amazing. What a stupid adult way of thinking. Trying to get back to find the intrinsic value of just making art. Good or bad doesn’t exist. It either IS or ISN’T. Ha.

So here is a first in a series of drawings inspired by some of my favorite artists. This one is obviously a fake Basquiat. Enjoy!

Found another weird video on youtube of a cute weird girl dancing weirdly to one of my favorite songs by Kraftwerk. I love it.

“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.”
Chuck Close on Charlie Rose Show

Super random video I stumbled upon while searching for some Pac.

And the person under the blanket was a total suprise to me. Ha.

My Birthday

Posted in Art, Consumption, Uncategorized by peterchunmaowu on May 13, 2009


Dear Universe,

I have never asked for a present for my birthday since I was 11-years-old. It was for a Gameboy. Now I am older, wiser, and only want one thing*

A subscription to VISIONAIRE magazine.

Thank You.

Sincerely,
Peter Chun Mao Wu
