    Guerrilla Art Space

    It was another eclectic night with art in the air and of corse on the walls! Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld curated the second solo exhibition of Paris based artist Nicolas Pol in New York. Twenty new paintings and a group of sculptures transformed the industrial space in 560 Washington Street into a `guerrilla art space`. Bold colors, violence, vulgar and punk laboratory is the vocabulary of Nicolas Pol´s work.  As Pol says: “Boxes are vanities. Hollow like skulls. Vanities of human enterprises, technological progress or power. Computers make fake easy. They are the laziest way to make metaphysical statements. Beyond pessimism. Is it really the builder or the destroyer that cares for the future?

    Teamwork

    Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld is not only Nicolas Pol´s art dealer and agent, no Roitfeld took also hand on, when it came to the sculptures in the middle of the room – He shot three arrows in one of them, because artist Nicolas Pol wanted them there! `I organize everything Nicolas needs for his work`, says Roifeld.

    The créme de la créme of the art, fashion and entertainment scene, among others Carine Roitfeld & Sisley Restoin, Keira Chaplin, Mario Sorrenti & Mary Frey, Jacqueline Schnabel and Bernd Runge, joined Nicolas Pol´s and Roitfeld´s presentation. After the opening Vip´s headed to Gramercy Terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel for an intimate sit-down dinner.
