George Hustus - a dope miami artist

artist statement: This body of work is influenced by the concept of preserving communication through modern forms of urban hieroglyphics (street art). The idea of extending human memory is communicated by imprinting stylistic characters and marks onto the surface of the canvasses in an energetic and impulsive manner.

interesting email i got today

Ponder the following

What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stag e, including a three month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage daughter?

What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review? What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?

What if McCain had only married once, and Obama was a divorcee?

What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a severe disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his standards?

What if Obama had me t his second wife in a bar and had a long affair while he was still married?

What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted to painkillers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable organization?

What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?(The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruptionin 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the 20 larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)

What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?

What if Obama couldn't read from a teleprompter?

What if Obama was the one who had military experience that included discipline problems and a record of crashing four planes?

What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on many occasions, a serious anger management problem?

What if Michelle Obama's family had made th eir money from beer distribution?

What if the Obamas had adopted a white child?

Educational Background:

Funkshion Miami Fashion Week

Funkshion - Fashion Week Miami Beach celebrated its 11th season with the most impressive line-ups in their history. The state of the art fashion tents where built INSIDE the Botanical Garden in Miami Beach. The venue featured three unique venues with a large court yard for sponsor activations in the center of it all. FUNKSHION: Fashion Week Miami Beach opened on October 1st at both the Botanical Gardens HARPERS BAZAAR show (8pm) and with BEJEWELED BY SUSAN FIXEL at Setai Hotel.

The shows I had a chance to attend were the Argyle Culture runway show by Russell Simmons, The Keva show by Keva J, and the Cookie runway show by Cookie magazine. All three shows were good with a notable appearance by Keva J who made an exceptionally strong showing, especially for a new comer. She is an up and comer originally from South Florida who is making a name for herself designing woman's wear.

Argyle collection features a classic yet timeless American styled line updated with a bright and contemporary color palette. As expected there were many famous faces in attendance such as: Gabrielle Union, Kevin Lyles, Mr. Simmons (himself), Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, & Ryan Seacrest of American Idol fame, even rapper turn DJ; D Nice.

Here r a few pics from the Argyle show & afterparty:
