Paul Getty Foundation, Los Angeles, April 20, 2005> When he first came to NEW YORK in 1962 he was part of three different worlds: music, film and jazz. “I played every night, after spending all day at the studio making art work,” he said about his time in New York. “But they didn’t really have any connection.

The GRAPHITE STALLIONS, one of our city’s new startup companies, has teamed up with Artscape Youngplace on Shaw Street for 2-hour sketching parties. And what are they sketching? Nude, buff young men who are quite prepared to sit in a chilly studio while being committed to paper by fully dressed women artists.For novices interactive art instruction is available, and the sessions are filled with music. The co-founders have art backgrounds – Martha Malloy works in art design, and Kirstin Bojanowski is an abstract painter. “It’s all about celebrating beauty and somebody’s body,” said Malloy.
