This last Thursday I had the pleasure of attending the Jordan Betten Art Exhibit in a penthouse loft in Chelsea dubbed, "one of the best lofts in New York," by Sotheby's. Jordan's work is taking on new heights with celebrity buyers ranging from Madonna to Nicole Kidman to Cindy Blackman. The show was curated by Stuart Holt, a private European art consultant and attendees ranged the gamut from Cindy Blackman to model Daria Werbowy. The PR Agency People's Revolution promoted the event with a small post-exhibit gathering at Bungalow 8 for the night cap.
Betten is more broadly known for his Lost Art collections, a clothing line typified by it's fringed jackets and hand sewn leather pants. Thursday marked an official expansion of his creative expertise to include professional paintings with long, swerving, continuous lines representing the twists and turns one encounters in life. For those of you interested in collecting art, Jordan signed his earlier works differently than his later one's.
Overall, it was a great time.
