New Image Art is proud to announce the coming together of artist Neck Face and New York based “FUCK THIS LIFE”. This union is a recipe for disaster of the most curiously illuminating kind, collaboratively commentating on the harsh and the veiled, the outlawed and the unthinkable.
Neck Face recently exhibited alongside those considered most influential in American street art culture in MOCA’s Art in the Streets exhibition. The event reintroduced the performer in Neck Face, whose portrayal of a down and out alley dweller brought him the first mention in the New York Times review of the graffiti and street art retrospective. His Halloween show openings have become notable charades celebrating the lurid and the ghastly complete with a haunted house entrance staged along with his family. Neck Face’s aptitude for multi-media has also been seen in the production of metal masks, paper-maché sculptures and film. For this unique character and international figure of street culture, the true triumph lies in the pure harmony between his examination of the villain, the rogue and the nightmare and his unfaltering wit and fresh approach. This time in Amerika’s 2 Most Wanted, Neck Face’s unmistakable illustrative style is maintained in the expansion of his medium to charcoal drawings. Also exhibiting his brilliantly colored guache and ink paintings, these works begin their development with scrawls on napkins with a bar maid’s breast-pocket pen – parody’s of his own tailoring, drawn from cartoons to current events of all denominations.
FUCK THIS LIFE has participated in The New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1 with his well-known street culture ‘zine.
Several published anthologies deep – FUCK THIS LIFE also has a haphazard initiation of his own process – collecting discarded remains of newspapers (and other less savory publications) off the ground and scouring them for applicable images. The ensuing collages reveal themes of fate, tragedy, brutality and the human condition. In spite of the staggering trauma, main-stream hypocrisy and sensationalism represented in FUCK THIS LIFE’s socially analytical work, there is a stillness and commanding refinement to its assembly. New Image Art is honored to exhibit these full color original images for the first time.
A coalescence of eerie irony and macabre humor underpin this duo’s social interpretation.

The American Civil Liberties Union won a free speech victory preventing troopers from ticketing people for using profanity.
State police said they will not be citing people for disorderly conduct based solely on profanity.
Investigators learned that Matthews had actually stolen the identity from a felon in Nevada a decade earlier, prosecutors said.
Authorities believe that Matthews used the felon’s identity to purchase the BMW.
Prosecutors say he contacted police with the phony stolen identity report after defaulting on the payments, and didn’t want his own stolen identity negatively affected.
Allen Robert Reyes, 31, has been arrested for allegedly shooting a woman in the face at a party. A tipster tells us that Allen Robert Reyes is the real name of pickup guru “Gunwitch.”
Reyes was featured in Neil Straus’ The Game; according to the book:
…Gunwitch and Gunwitch Method, in which the only thing students have to do is project animalistic sexuality and escalate physical contact until the woman stops them. His crude motto: “Make the ho say no.”
Some 400 high-tech South African traffic lights are out of action after thieves in Johannesburg stole the mobile phone Sim cards they contain.
The thieves ran up bills amounting to thousands of dollars by using the stolen cards to make calls.
Johannesburg Road Agency (JRA) said it is investigating the possibility of an “inside job” after only the Sim card-fitted traffic lights were targeted.
The cards were fitted to notify JRA when the traffic lights were faulty.
FOR this man, the phrase ‘there’s a bit of the devil in him’ has real meaning after he started growing horns from his head.
Huang Yuanfan, 84 from southern China has baffled medics after he began to grow a horn on his head.
Mr Yuanfan explained that the bizarre growth began as a small bump two years ago but just continued to grow.
“I tried picking at it and even filing it but nothing changed it. The horn just kept getting bigger,” he said.
Working with a jeweller and the vinyl record manufacturer Dubstudios, I created this engagement ring for my partner Shelina. The ring has a 20 second recorded message (my proposal) etched onto it’s surface and can be played back with a miniature record player.
“Shelina, I’ll love you forever. Marry Me!…Shelina, I’ll love you forever. Marry Me!….”
100 lbf/in² of pressure was required to cut the silver ring, using a vibrating diamond stylus. The ring is also a homage to Thomas Edison who made the first sound recording machine – the phonograph in 1877.
Ani – some call it the City of 1001 Churches, others the City of Forty Gates. Yet no one has called it home for more than three centuries.
Abandoned by its once prosperous and powerful inhabitants, it is situated on the Turkish side of a militarised zone between the border of Turkey and Armenia.
The city of Ani is no stranger to death, destruction and desertion.
Indeed, the best model seems to be the Frankenstein monster who advances impervious to pain, bullets, and this time to fire, in order to murder, dismember or bugger men, women, children and the household pets.
The myths are compelling because they touch an emotional core that has meaning in the individual and in the culture, and they exploit our fascination with horror.
The user commits wanton rape and murder, the murders often encompass fratricide, matricide or infanticide. The monster must die bizarrely: drowning in inches of water, attempting to fly from a building or trying to halt a speeding two-ton vehicle with its bare hands or body.
If it lives it should commit the most sexually meaningful self-mutilations, removal of the eyes or castration.
These tales are the archetypal expressions of human inner terrors and exist in the preserved ballad and epic tales of most languages.
Jung would have loved to analyze the facts about PCP presented by American media.
“Suge Knight ordered the hit,” Poole said, adding that he believes it was arranged by Reggie Wright Jr., who headed security for Death Row Records.
Reggie Wright Jr. told CNN he had nothing to do with the murder, and Knight has repeatedly said he had nothing to do with the crime. Poole said he retired early from the LAPD, in part, because he was thwarted in following leads in the Wallace case involving police officers, some of whom worked off-duty for Death Row Records.
“I think I was getting too close to the truth,” Poole said. “I think they feared that the truth would be a scandal.”
One of the officers Poole said was involved is David Mack, who was sent to prison for robbing a bank in 1997, the same year Wallace was killed.
Poole said Mack owned the same type of car driven by the gunman who shot Wallace, and Poole said a friend of Mack’s resembles a police sketch of the shooter.

After 40 years, the United States’ war on drugs has cost $1 trillion and hundreds of thousands of lives, and for what? Drug use is rampant and violence even more brutal and widespread.
Even U.S. drug czar Gil Kerlikowske concedes the strategy hasn’t worked.
“In the grand scheme, it has not been successful,” Kerlikowske told The Associated Press. “Forty years later, the concern about drugs and drug problems is, if anything, magnified, intensified.”
