Something we don’t do enough of here at Bad at Sports is trumpet the successes of our various contributors. Â It sort of happens piece meal, sometimes, but considering that the project is and always will be an artist run type thing â€“ our collaborators are more then just the deep thinkers, aesthetes, and vulgarians you know them to be! Such is the case with our Tom Sanford and his new show at Kravets|Wehby in NYC.
â€œCafÃ© des Artistesâ€ consists of 13 paintings. 10 paintings are images of notable New Yorkers and help define the cultural milieu of the city.
The show includes new portraits of Marcus Samuelsson, Diane Von Furstenberg, Walt Fraizer, Bill T Jones, Tina Fey, Woody Allen, Nicole Eisenman, Michael Bloomberg, The RZA, Â & Jonathan Lethem, and they are featuredÂ along side three â€œNew York Genre Paintings.â€
