Brooklyn Rail – Evolution and Life Cafe 983

Hrag remembers, “I lived in Bushwick beginning in 2000 and slowly started to notice things were changing fast as more artists, writers, and others were arriving, but it wasn’t until Life Cafe opened on Flushing Avenue (I think it was 2002) that it became quite obvious there was some action. Life ignited the media narrative that Bushwick was slowly becoming a new artistic outpost…. There really didn’t seem to be much to cover in Bushwick until 2006-ish, only random events. Williamsburg still dominated north Brooklyn culture (and still does in my opinion). Bushwick Open Studios really changed everything, since it granted many of us access to studios and artists that we didn’t know existed. I started blogging about the local scene in 2006 and that online writing immediately plugged me into the scene as people would comment on my blog posts, email me info, and link to my posts.”

ArtLife September East Village Life Cafe

“DANDYISM’ the exhibition, portraits of the
Dandy of New York by John Sunderland.
One of the true ‘faces’ and fashion icons of New York, Patrick McDonald, the acknowledged Dandy of New York and a regular patron of Life Cafe in the East Village is the subject of an exhibition of pastel portraits, by Life Artist John Sunderland, currently on display at Life Cafe,East tenth and Avenue B. Of the three portraits on display Patrick said, “That’s me, that’s me and that’s me too! Love it.”


The show is up through the month of September with a special reception on the evening of the 20th September.
The artist, dressed in paint soiled shorts, matching T and sweat stained canvas hat, said today of the project, “it took me three months and six portraits to find the real man, inside the chimera. And it has been a pleasure.
