Leo Fitzpatrick, best known for playing Telly in the 1995 film Kids, makes art. Members-only contemporary art print site Exhibition A is offering a festive appropriation by Fitzpatrick entitled “Kill Me I’m Irish”. The most interesting thing about this work is Fitzpatrick’s use of buttons to sign and number the editions.
Exhibition A has a Q&A with the actor/artist in which he says:
Art is not to be bought and sold but to be cherished and loved or at least hung.
When a friend of mine was leaving Max Fish with a tranny, Tino Razo said, ‘Dude, that’s a dude…dude.’ Poetry in motion.
Indeed. Check out the print and the buttons after the jump.
