Who’s excited about the premiere of Bravo’s newest reality show Work of Art? The contest pits 15 artists against one another for a prize of $100,000 and a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum. It airs tomorrow at 11, and here at AFC we can’t wait!
Naturally we’ve been doing a bit of research on the contestants, and have found Bravo’s art bios aren’t answering all our questions. What is the pre-existing art world credibility of their contestants? How good is their art? How will their personalities effect the show? We can only speculate on the latter, but we’ve put together our own custom biographies evaluating each contestants “cred” by providing work evaluations, career highlights, character assessments, and of course typecast names.
