NYC city artist/designer Scooter LaForge lives a life of bright colors, neon actually, cheerful images of Mickey Mouse and Popeye with oversized cocks, but I still sense, smell through his images on canvass a dark underbelly. He recently released a short film, Castle LaForge, premiering at Patricia Field’s multimedia art exhibit. Castle LaForge is provocative, playful, gritty, twisted world of LaForge comes to life. Directed by Jonathan Federico and Nathan Lee Bush watch as fashion and art collide in LaForge’s dark, cartoony kingdom.
While watching I kept getting a sense that there would be a ring of a door bell and would love to see LaForge and guests reaction. A kind of Rocky Horror Picture Show moment.
