Today Violet and I went to go look at the art of David Ferrando who had an art show up at the Inwood - Washington Heights YM-YWHA at 54 Nagel Avenue, Just off Broadway near 190th St. Violet described his acrilic Mixed Media works as Unique and colorful and noticed his works sometimes incorperated images from popular cartoons such as Olive Oyl (from Popeye) and Lazlow (from Camp Lazlow- even tho he didn't know the chraracter). We also met his daughter a young budding artist who shares my LaGuardia HS heritage. Woo Hoo! It was great to see Violet really speaking about what she really enjoyed about the art. Color use of different mediums etc. She says she even enjoyed his show more than the Metropolitan Museums Gustave Courbet exibit. "No nudes and yummy pastries!" So listen up you swanky museums the youth of the art world has spoken! I also wholeheartedly reccomend the show.
