Hey Ladies!!!! LEAH HAMILTON aka LiLi Happi

It's been a while that we had a chance to feature one of our favorite ladies. We've been both in the lab, working on new projects, but we do try to keep on supporting badass artists & artistas. This month, I'm pleased to introduce you to the multitalented Leah Hamilton aka Lili Happi, a Brooklyn-based documentary maker, art buyer, creative producer, art director and overall dope woman. Bohemian at heart, Lili's got her eye on the global art scene and has been running a blog where she features some of the hottest New York artists via short documentaries she produces. In her own words, "15 years in the business as an Art Buyer, a few years as a Creative Producer and a lifetime of artistic inclinations, collections,artsy friends, associates and dreams have molded me into this stage of life I call LiLi Happi. Through my quest to share my own personal experience with art and the artists who make it, I created a viral show and mag-vlog for people "who are what they art"" Check it out here!


WHERE DO YOU CALL IT HOME? home = mind = heart. and then there is Venus
WHAT DO YOU DO? I do for self so I can do for others
TRUE BEAUTY IS…false unless you embrace the flaws. for they are the seeds that will bloom into the beauty you'll be.
BEATS…life can't exists without the throbber. heart beats... best break ever.
TRUE SEXY IS…sexy is in the mind of the beholder
MUSIC IS MY…heaven. when i die. let me go to jazz.
ART DOES NOT…apologize. there is nothing that art can't do.
MY NIGHTS ARE…where my creativity grows
THESE 3 TURN ME ON…gentle eyes // peaceful confidence // free spirits
SELF-KNOWLEDGE …indeed we like that ! ... knowledge of self is the most important thing my mom ever taught me to learn and accept.
ENOUGH OF …the organic hype. if you believe it you got deep pockets.
MY CREATIVITY IS…unleashed daily
TRUE POWER IS…preservation and control of ones mind.
LIFE CAN BE work of art if you share the canvas
TO LOVE IS TO…let go. there are so many things in the world to touch.
I'VE GOT FLOW BECAUSE…I'm not afraid of failure
NEW PROJECTS FOR 2009? I'm already in 2010. doc launch, t-shirt launch, art basel 2010 and moving some important works into the homes of some very important people
WHERE CAN WE REACH YOU? but you have to create your best happy face art and send it or you won't hear back from me.
SHOUTOUTS? on Venus we don't shout we smile.

TRAILER: FIRE + FIRE/ BLACK + GYPSY from FeatureZoo on Vimeo.

Fire + Fire features an historic meeting of musical sympathies when nine Hungarian Gypsy musicians meet with seven of their Black American counterparts to interrogate a history of mutual oppression and silences. Part of the yearlong Extremely Hungary Festival, Fire + Fire delves into the synergies of two cultures, melding musical and political expression—this taking the shape through the story of star crossed lovers caught in a weft of cultural clash and political dialogue. The ensemble employs an experimental fusion of spoken word, movement and full on “jam sessions” to create a brand new vernacular that will spring this tale of two cultures to life. Fire + Fire will be presented at Symphony Space on November 19 and 21.

There are compelling parallels between the Gypsy and African-American experience, that energy and struggle is reflected in jazz and Gypsy music—both are intense, explosive, individual and raw.”
- Greg Tate, Co-Curator FIre+ Fire

I'm showing some work along with 20 + Brooklyn artists--Come through this Saturday! Check out the preview of some of the other exhibitors' work on my personal blog.

(BROOKLYN, NY) November 12, 2009 – Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation’s Center for Arts and Culture, PUMA, and The Coup d’etat Arts Collective are honored to announce the opening of “Live to Change Something Through Art,” a mixed media exhibition of works created by 23 local artists.

“Live to Change Something Through Art” features work that is reflective of the current Brooklyn arts movement and underscores Coup d’etat’s thought-provoking brand principle, “Live to Change Something.” Highlighting a multicultural collective of artists across several disciplines, the exhibition encompasses painting, photography, sculpture, video and installation.

“The voices of Urban image makers have too often been dismissed as inarticulate and underexposed,” says Rasu Jilani, co-founder of Coup d’etat Brooklyn, and “Live to Change Something Through Art” Creative Director. “This exhibition was developed to help my fellow creators build positive awareness of their work while exposing our youth to the many vehicles of self-expression.”

Artists that were hand-selected to participate in “Live to Change Something Through Art” include: Molaundo Jones, Suhail Smith, Sam Wilson, Lichiban, Rob Fokused, Alice Mizrachi, Stephanie Land, Deka, SeeOne, One9, Alzo Slade, Ana Bravo, Berman Fenelus, Jen One, Reuben King, Amanda Diva, Nelson Rivas, Kwesi Abbensetts, Paul Deo, Robert Trujillo, Suncadm Bey, Ibrahim, and Yang-Chi.

About Coup d’etat Arts Collective: Coup d’etat Arts Collective is a Brooklyn-based collaboration of highly respected artists who produce various art-related events throughout New York City. The Collective's annual exhibition features a never-before-seen assembly of New York City’s most sought after visual artists. With music as the backdrop, the Coup d’etat Arts Collective provides a unique platform for creative synergy while filling an undeniable void in the arts community.

Nite Jewel "What Did He Say?"

TAYLORED CANVAS :: Liberty Of London FALL Collection

Rolling Stones guitar legend Ronnie Wood bringing his talent as a painter to fashion–iconic British brand Liberty of London.


Here is a new track from the lab of my two brilliant friends, singer/ MC NIKKI NTU & producer/ MC/ DJ MELO-X. These two have been dropping gems, if you haven't had a chance to listen to their first project, THE HISTORY OF DREAMS EP-which I had the pleasure to illustrate-, check it out's FREE as well! [photo by King Texas & TONE]

A word from MeLo-X:

Wass good peeps. Long time no see.

I been in the Lab working on a lot of music this past summer and fall. This year has been so productive for me with the success of my music, shows, and parties. I wanted to end the year off with some good new music. I'm not the type of artist to release music frequently with no plan or reason other than just having music out. It makes no sense too me. So since I have a lot of Music stashed up I figured I'd end the year right. From now till January I'll be putting out a lot of music produced by me. This is to Build up for my First official Instrumental Album Dropping Next year called Sonic Intercourse. Be on the look out.

This track is called Get It Up feat. Nikki NTU and produced by me. It is from a project that I worked very hard on this past summer. Take a listen and turn up the bass on ya speakers. Stay tuned for a itunes release of Nikki NTU's first EP "A History of Dreams" scheduled for next year spring. BLAOW!!!!

fREE MUSIC...ASEN JAMES :: Henny Float

Our good friend, Asen James recently had dropped a free album called Henny Float referencing Asen's secret recipe involving Hennessy and vanilla ice cream...hmmmm. The Henny Float became the source of inspiration for the album release on General Particular’s Foco Moto imprint. The Album consists of 18 tracks of “chops”, a re-mix art form well known to lovers of modern music. The tunes were (re)created mostly from classic R & B Tunes but include a few surprises as well. The album, produced by James and Executive Produced by Rich Williams, seeks to fill a gap in instrumental hip hop projects. Asen is a Brooklyn-based musician, music producer, and writer. Asen has been known as a producer under the moniker, Ray Beta, lending his production skills for artist who has been labeled "True School", among them X-Clan and YZ.

In recent years Asen has written theme music for Grey Publishing, the company of legendary Marvel and DC comics artist, Grey. He has also scored the films, No Problema, by writer, director Rich Williams and Moral Panic by Documentarian Akintola Hanif. Check the heat

Mamas love...YOUNITY FRESHER! Eco-Street Art Show TOMORROW 10/3 7-11pm

I'll be showing some new work at the new YOUNITY show (will give a sneak peep soon)!

- Third Annual Exhibit Features 40 Female Avant-Garde Artists Who Recycle & Create Art for the Earth -

Queens, NY (September 3, 2009)— Back for its third annual show, YOUNITY presents an eco-art exhibition entitled 
FRESHER!, opening October 3, 2009 at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural & Educational Center in the Lower East Side section of New York City. Running until October 23, 2009, the exhibit is not the average “white-wall” art show; the all-female collective will transform the art space into an eco-funhouse of raw materials and street art. Elements such as graffiti, photography, design and construction are used to connect ideas about consumerism, environmentalism, health, and renewable energy. The private press hour from 6pm-7pm will grant access to notable, oft-unseen artists right before the public unveiling of work at 8pm. FRESHER! features main-stay YOUNITY artists such as Lady Pink, Martha Cooper, and AIKO while introducing emerging artists such as China Morbosa and Amanda Lopez YOUNITY Co-Founders and artists, Alice Mizrachi and TOOFLY, continue to push the collective to new levels of creativity.

Exhibiting works will mask the bi-level art space with a range of colorful hand-styles, creative graphics on natural textures such as wood and abstract riffs. Some of the artworks will focus on messages about greening and preserving the earth, including recycling, pollution and even ideas about social issues. A video montage will display the collective’s latest effort to Refresh the Streets –a collaborative effort to beautify a 60ft outdoor mural in Williamsburg Brooklyn with colorful, green-themed street art by selected members of the YOUNITY. Exhibiting artists at FRESHER! include SHIRO, Diana McClure, Kerri O’Connell, LICHIBAN, Krista Franklin, Kelly Denato, Niz, Paulina Quintana Jornet, and Cece Carpio, to name a few. Only 40 out of 300 female artists were selected to participate in this special exhibit.

“We wanted to provide a working network of opportunity for female artists,” says YOUNITY Co-founder Alice Mizrachi, “and we, as women, need a space to create art exhibitions, murals, books and a much needed archive of women’s urban contemporary art.” YOUNITY Co-founder TOOFLY adds, “Look at recent events that are affecting us and the next generation: the economy, global warming and healthcare, this is the perfect time to put on a show like FRESHER! and express our creative desire to promote green living and the improvement of our community.”

With the success of their premiere exhibit, The C R O S S O V E R, and the second annual Heart and Soul show, YOUNITY has become one of the most sought after all-female collectives to date. With that, they are devoted to passing the torch on to younger female artists through the YOUNITY Youth team. As of now, YOUNITY is in need of continued support to foster its self-publishing endeavors and independent growth. Limited edition YOUNITY t-shirts will be available for sale on opening night and online at We will also have a very limited amount of Heart and Soul books available as well. The limited edition shirts and books will both retail for $20. Any other donations to the collective can be directed to: via PayPal.
