Michelangelo Pistoletto

Metro cubo d’infinito, 1966

The invention of the #artselfie came right around my discovery of Michelangelo Pistoletto and his mirror paintings. It all happened at the Armory Show last year and ever since I have become obsessed. My first Pistoletto was “Venere con la Pipa,” a silkscreen on a mirror (actually steel) featuring a naked woman laying on a bed while smoking a pipe. Loved how this piece reminded me of Manet’s “Olympia” and also how it traumatized my Instagram followers who are not used to nudity on their feeds.
