If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked photographer Ryan McGinley — whose solo New York exhibit opens in July at Team Gallery, and whose work is being published by Rizzoli in a catalogue called “Mirror Mirror”— about the indigo jeans, vagina charm necklace, and egg burrito he can’t live without.
Luis [Venegas] is a Spanish editor and publisher of five independent limited-edition fashion magazines. One about dogs, another about cute guys, one about transgender fashion, another about his artistic interests. He also recently published a book of my personal iPhone photos documenting my relationship.
Cute, colorful animal paintings and prints. I bought a painting of a baby yellow duck on a lavender background, it hangs in my living room. She also does animal painting commissions. I’m gearing up to get a portrait painted of my dog, Dickie.
Shari is known as Joshua Tree’s Art Queen. She is also the owner and curator of the World Famous Crochet Museum with an old Fotomat booth painted lime-green and stuffed with hundreds of crocheted animals. Shari is an enforcer of goodness and makes art in that spirit. I have ordered many pieces from her over the years. My favorite are her spiritual signs that read “Space of Love” or “Sign from God.” I’ve also bought paintings of Jesus and Cher. Recently I bought some clothes that were stamped with bottles that read “I am Medicine.” Everyday when I brush my teeth I’ve got a small red painting from her that reads “I Like Myself.”
