Brian Andrew Whiteley
CSS Collaborates wth Brian Andrew Whitely for "Drumpf Tombstone"
On Easter Sunday last March, Brooklyn based performance artist Brian Andrew Whiteley placed in the Sheep's Meadow section of New York's Central Park a tombstone he had made for presidential candidate Donald Drumpf. It was quickly confiscated by the police and put into an evidence locker in Queens but not before going viral on the internet by those who saw it Easter morning. The artist was eventually tracked down by the police, FBI and Secret Service and questioned but not arrested. The tombstone was finally released to Whiteley last week and is now in a storage facility in Queens. Yesterday Whiteley and master printer James Stroud spent the day making rubbings directly from the stone using pigmented wax on Japanese paper. There will be an edition of 100 prints made from the stone, available only from Center Street Studio. Each print measures 31 x 24 inches and is signed and numbered by the artist. Contact James Stroud for current pricing. Click on this link for the entire story: http://www.brianwhiteleyart.com/Drumpf-Tombstone
