Dave Matthews and Beezy Bailey Present Art in New York Exhibition

Dave Matthews Beezy Bailey Art Gallery New York Exhibition Andy WarholDave Matthews and his long-time friend Beezy Bailey have an art gallery showing open in New York from March 5th to April 13th. The collaborative exhibit, named "Itica Pritica," includes 28 silkscreened works and a short film. 

Despite having done six paintings together in 1999 for Africa's world of Music, Arts and Dance festival in Johannesberg, Dave says this collaboration is a big deal. In an interview with CNN he described the joint effort as his most ambitious painting project to date.

The exhibit is at the Robert Miller Gallery at 524 West 26th. The gallery describes the work as an homage to Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg.

Dave is not a fan of everything on display. One of the pieces has his face featured more than 20 times. "If there's a fire in the building, leave that shit in!" he exclaimed to CNN.

Dave and Beezy Bailey also created a short film of Beezy dancing around in a stylized fat suit called the "fatman" costume. The film includes an original musical combination by Dave.

We've included some photos of paintings in the exhibition after the break. Be sure to also see Boyd Tinsley's recent work to promote his film project, Faces In the Mirror. Above photo by Michael Rothman.
