Get Lucky in Brooklyn: Dont Fret Has Lottery Tickets!

“O god, there are noises I am going to be hungry for” – Carl Sandburg

“The art world has always felt like a lottery to me,” Dont Fret says as he paints one of his distinctively odd and fabulously mediocre characters across the shiny gold scratch card from the corner bodega.

Starting 2020 off with an eponymous new book “Life Thus Far” and a month-long stay at Bed Stuy Artist Residency, you may think the Chicago street humorist has won the Powerball.

“As a part of my New York residency I’m doing my annual DF lottery,” he says about the new collection of customized lotto cards he’ll be showing at the reception for you that he’s hosting in this brownstone. Dont Fret says he’s hoping you’ll strike it lucky too.

“Artists are looking for their big break, collectors are looking for an “investment opportunity” –as much as something for the living room, and taping a banana to a wall just gets you a lot of attention and a decent source of potassium,” he says.

Save the date to come about this special event on the 30th, where the artist will be happy to meet you and show you these stickers and some other projects. He’ll also be signing copies of his new book along with BSA’s Steven P. Harrington, who wrote the introduction for it.

“Each ticket is signed and numbered,” says Dont Fret. “On January 30 a lottery will occur of distributed tickets and 2 winners will be chosen. Runner up will win a signed copy of my book “Life Thus Far” and a GRAND prize winner will win an original painting from my show in New York City ‘O God, There’s Noises I’m Going To Be Hungry For New Work’”.
