1. Above are a few pics from the book launch/signing event for Plastic that took place at The Newsstand in Brooklyn last Sunday.

    What began as an experimental series, initially destined to become screen prints created during a 2011 artist residency at the Frans Masereel Centrum; turned into a two year book project that came together on July 14th, 2013.

    Below are the very first portraits made in this style. The first three were taken of model Simone in Barbados and the fourth is of German musician, Lary in Berlin:
