Interview With Artist 'MADSTEEZ'


B!ll The Butcher Ween

"I got to design a pop-up store next to Reed Space in the Lower East Side for some products I had come out with for Boost Mobile a few years back. I had a spot for three large paintings  and I wanted to do somthing site specific. I just had to do the 5 points and Bill The Butcher from Gangs of New York. I did this piece in four hours and afterwards I was emotionally exhausted. I was going through some dark shit mentally and it felt good to get evil."



Ween Kostanza

"I'm a huge Seinfeld fan and there was no way I could top the painting that had already been done of Kramer. George was just as deserving so I fired him up. I don't know why I didn't think of it before but I sent it to him via Twitter and check his response. P.S., I also have a really good Larry David story where I had a meeting with him about a project and I literally slept face down, out cold, laying in a puddle of my own drool during the entire meeting."
