The Dr. Sketchy Anti-Art School Art Star Tribute in my honor was delightful! Below you will find a video of people sketching the models as they pose while the talented Howard Fishman (guitar) and Russell Farhang (violin) perform their song Gypsy Waltz. Gypsy Waltz plays whenever someone gets close to the interactive painting. -Cynthia von Buhler
The beautifully delicate Sucre d'Orge disrobes for us. Please do not watch this if you are offended by nudity.
Magic! Just for fun Cynthia made a dove appear and disappear:What is that on Cynthia's face in the video above? Live sleeping cockroaches, of course. How do you do this? 1) Place them in the freezer for 1 hour and they peacefully doze off. They don't feel a thing. 2) Glue them to your face with the tiniest bit of eyelash glue. 3) They will wake well rested a few hours later.
After the event Cynthia held a salon party at her Chelsea Hotel room. Sketches from the event were displayed next to the painting which inspired them. Models posed nude while artists drew them. Yao Xiao documented the party with her lovely drawings. You can hire her to document your own parties. Find out more about her HERE.A couple days after the party we all realized that Cynthia had been staying in the room where Sid (Sex Pistols) and Nancy had stayed and where she was murdered. Creepy. We had thought the butterfly curtains were in her honor. Here is artist and author Katelan Foisy's take on the evening.
Additional pictures from the event can be found HERE.
