Michael Anderson RIP
This week we came back to sad news last week we lost a great friend of the show and a unique NYC based voice, Michael Anderson. To honor his passing we represent his interview from 2009. We miss you buddy!
Holla! NYC correspondents Amanda Browder and Tom Sanford hang out with artist Michael Anderson in his Harlem studio. Born in the Bronx in 1968, Mr. Anderson began his artistic career fusing painting and collage but has concentrated on collage since the early 1990s.
Since that time his materials have consisted solely of posters and billboards found on the streets of international cities and physically torn down by the artist. (text from Michael’s Blog).
To prep you when you go see Michael’s show at Marlborough Gallery in Chelsea which opened on March 26th, 2009, Tom and Amanda talk to Michael about his work and end the conversation with a boxing match, as a way to get out their inner feelings. Michael watches in fear….or is it hilarity!
