Neo Rauch visits the Academy!

The very celebrated German figurative artist Neo Rauch was in town for his opening at David Zwirner Gallery, but during his stay he was kind enough to visit NYAA and meet the students. In case you aren't familiar with him, he's a HUGE DEAL. Some students here really worship his work. Not only did he stop into classrooms, he walked through every studio at the Academy. I happened to be in my studio painting at the time, so I got to meet him. We shook hands and he checked out my work. I never realized he was so good looking. Above is a shot of him in front of my studio.

Stay tuned for a post about his opening at David Zwirner Gallery
