Todd James' Art You Can Eat
New York artist Todd James (also known as graffiti artist REAS) celebrates the release of his latest book, Yield To Temptation, tonight, September 20th, from 6 p.m.to 8 p.m. at The Standard Shop (442 West 13th Street). James will be on-hand to sign copies of this collection of 60 drawings, which include themes of "American excess" via imagery of cartoonish sexuality and violence as well as war and piracy. Also on view: A unique (and yummy) group of 15 artist-edition candy sculptures based on Todd's characters that he made as a collab with LES "candy workshop" Pappabubble. (And yes, that asterisk on the cat is its b-hole. Candy cat anuses are apparently being sold separately tonight as well. Early purchase stocking stuffers, perhaps?) Check out some of edible work and images from the book below.
