Last night I decided to spend the evening looking at great art at the Brooklyn Museum and luckily Mickalene Thomas: Origin of the Universe was still showing. It was beyond a treat to see her art and set designs in person. Mickalene has a great talent for using color and embellishments in her pieces and seeing it all in one place was overwhelming and inspiring. All I wanted to do was place myself in her artwork and be a 70s glam queen for a night.
Check out some of my favs:
Another fun fact about Mickalene was she did the set design for Solange Knowles (Beyonce's baby sis) video "Losing You"
Make sure you get a chance to see it for yourself, the exhibit ends on January 20th!
