Stephanie Dueñas and Russell Shoemaker discuss Attorney Street (Handball Court with Autobiographical Poem by Piñero); a language packed and illustrative painting of 80’s era Lower East Side by a lesser known artist, Martin Wong, from 1984.
In this episode, we discuss Martin Wong’s time in, and inspiration from, the crumbling New York of the 1980s.
Topics include: Boutique Yoga Studios and a multitude of Jerry Seinfelds over running NYC throughout the decades. Hey Arnold. BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ artists thumbing their noses at the conventional art genres. The first ever Graffiti museum. Wong’s short life and interest in the people around him. And some groans for the Supreme x Martin Wong collection.
