The Art Amry Royalty x Mike Leavitt @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Over the weekend the Jonathan Levine Gallery opened two solo shows, the one that really caught my attention was the new “Art Army Royalty” by Mike Leavitt. Each one of these figures is based on a member of the art world that could easily be considered royalty, even though I gnash my teeth when thinking of a few of these artists placed in the same perch as the others. Each figure is made with polymer clay and is sat upon a custom made display that also has a metal name tag. I love how each artist is designed in a way that brings their own art into the presentation; this is most prominent with Ai WeiWei, Barbara Kruger, Gerhard Richter, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, and Damien Hirst. Head on over and took a look at the entire show, each one of these figures is outstanding.

    Dig the Chuck Close and Ai Weiwei sculpts. Which of the artists made you shudder? Koons I thought coulda been left out…

      None of the work made me shudder, it was more of the artists they portray. I haven’t made it well known, but when asked I have no problem saying I do not like the work of Jeff Koons or Damien Hirst.
