Dear Friends,

I wanted to take a moment to personally invite you to a very special exhibition and release party for the long awaited monograph, Heroes & Villains. Six years in the making, the book canonizes, in portraiture, some of the most intriguing and innovated artists working today.

A seminal moment in art history. I hope you’ll join us.
