Born to a drug-addicted mother, Mark Morrisroe (1959-1989) left home at 13, began hustling at 15 and at 17 was shot in the back by a client. The entirety of Morrisroe’s brief life was characterized by danger and poverty, and mythologized by him as such: his mother was a friend and neighbor of Albert DeSalvo (aka the Boston Strangler) and Morrisroe claimed to be his illegitimate son. Morrisroe died in 1989.

Mark Morrisroe: From This Moment On will be the first comprehensive exhibition in the United States of works by artist Mark Morrisroe (1959 – 1989), providing an insight into the radical and innovative output of his short career.

What: Mark Morrisroe: From This Moment On
Where: Artists Space, New York –38th Greene Street
When: March 9th – May 1 2011

Following the discovery of a string of Banksy drawings around Los Angeles over the past couple of weeks, it appears as though the cunning street artist is back at it again. A new Banksy sketch has just been uncovered in Hollywood that depicts a young girl standing in front of a house being boarded up.

With the Academy Award ceremony coming up on Feb. 27 (Banksy has been nominated for an Oscar in the Best Documentary category for Exit Through the Gift Shop), who knows what else the artist has up his sleeve.

Since we are on the topic of Banksy, he’s set to have another cameo (not him, him, but his work, duh) in an episode of The Simpsons.
