Shea Hembrey

Today I'm giving myself leave to feature Shea Hembrey's Incredible 1 Man Biennial. Hey, there's a few paintings in it, right?

Hembrey says he dreamed of running his own international biennial, but decided it was too much work to actually ask international artists. So he made the whole thing himself. He wrote the hilarious back-stories of 100 artists and then actually made an artwork for every single one, in a different style. Check the video for his talk at TED, I think it's totally charming and hilarious.
