I Love Old NY followed artist Mark Turgeon during all of 2011 to document his work and his lifestyle. He is a very old school guy who has been doing beautiful signs and storefronts all over the city for years and years. We started when Mark was doing the storefront of Buvette last winter (here and here). Recently, we went to see his work at Tacombi and we were invited to his house, where we had a chance to talk to him about his aesthetic, his work and, of course, Old NY.
The black and white picture of a man which turned out to be no one other than Mark himself: a shot captured during the time he lived and painted in Paris. Among his prized possessions are the typewriter where he writes his traditional christmas postcards; the boots with the worn out soles hanging in the kitchen, and last but lot least one of his first paints, etc Enjoy the sneak peek at Mark the Painter. Full video coming soon!
