Postcards From the Edge is a Visual AIDS benefit show and sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established and emerging artists. All works are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The works are signed on the back and exhibited so the artists’ signatures cannot be seen. While buyers receive a list of all participating artists, they don’t know who created which piece until purchased.

All proceeds support the work of Visual AIDS, utilizing contemporary art for AIDS advocacy and historicizing the work of HIV-positive artists while offering career support.

Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions: Spraygraphic interviews artist Noah Lyon

Spraygraphic Interview with Noah Lyon

SG: Please tell us about yourself?

NL: Let me answer that question by answering the next 14 questions.

SG: Where do you currently live and work?

NL: New York City

SG: What mediums do you work with?

NL: I’ll take a medium and take it to the extreme. So it would be way more than medium, more like maximum. Maximum rock’n’roll. Maximum markers. I use paper too. But maximum doesn’t always mean the biggest it also could be, like, the smallest. So I’ll take a 1”x 1” piece of paper and make the most incredible drawing ever, nowhere near medium, if it were a pepper it would be the most hot and if it were Bob Marley it would be the most high. One-inch drawings turn into one-inch buttons & I’ll make the most of that too. Like make the maximum amount of buttons. I think 50,000 might be the max. Anyways that’s where I’m at right now. Way beyond medium. Push it to the limit, walk along the razor’s edge. I’ll make a painting with no paint. Is that medium or minimum? I try to work as little as possible. Minimum work, maximum results, any medium, bring it on. (more…)
