Tom Waits Teaches Us About John Baldessari

John Baldessari’s work spans over six decades and explores nearly every type of medium imaginable, hes even created his own iPhone app  where you can dissect and reconfigure a 1667 Abraham van Beyern still-life (the awesome one with the lobster) like an apple product sticker book.  He also cremated all of his work from 1953 to 1966 and baked the ashes into cookies… which he keeps in a book shaped urn in his studio?  He’s an interesting dude and his pop art paintings are definitely worth taking a look at. Want to learn more about Baldessari? Hey look, theres a youtube video for that!  AND its narrated by singer/songwriter/actor/all-american badass, Tom Waits.  Get cooler Baldessari, oh wait you can’t.  Got six minutes to spare?  Watch and learn about John Baldessari.
