Artist Mark Kostabi is prepping to release his newest album of unique music, we hear — and he’ll make his debut as an orchestral composer at Carnegie Hall on March 3.
Kostabi composed 9 items on his forthcoming recording, and performed a Steinway live performance grand piano backed by world-class NYC musicians.
Before making albums, he was a New York ’80s artwork sensation with works within the collections of the Met, MoMA and the Guggenheim. As Art in America stated when a 2009 documentary on Kostabi, “Con Artist,” got here out: “Celebrated in the 1980s as Warhol’s heir apparent (or bastard child, take your pick) he gobbled up fame and money for production line paintings that he was happy to call ‘trash.’ While his shamelessness made plenty of people squirm, many saw Kostabi as a vivid, ballsy art-world critic.”
His data embody “I Did It Steinway.”
His brother Paul Kostabi is a founding member of heavy rock act White Zombie.
