Macaulay Culkin and his pals are introducing their art collective, named Three Men and a Baby, or 3MB, with this video and an upcoming showing of their work.
In Culkin's living room, the "Three Men" laid out drop clothes and huge canvases, converting his home into a studio. Along with Adam Green and Toby Goodshank, formerly of the band The Moldy Peaches, Culkin has been working since February on paintings that jab at pop culture through collage and mixed-media in an intentionally "low brow" way.
Mack describes it:
- "You go to the Met or something like that, and you see some of the paintings from the Renaissance era. A lot of those were probably the most technically proficient paintings in the entire museum. However, when you go to the Modern wing, they might not be as technically proficient, might not have as much skill--but those are the kind of things you want on your wall. Well, what do we want to put on our wall? It's not necessarily about technique, it's more about the ideas. It's more about just what you want to look at."
The group's show, Leisure Inferno include a painting of the "Cast of Seinfeld," in which Jerry and the gang are posing nude as models for the artists, He-Man and Orko from Masters of the Universe. Uhh ... yeah ...
The idea for 3MB didn't just come out of thin air, the trio first collaborated on the feature-length film The Wrong Ferrari, shot entirely on an iPhone. That's when the idea for 3MB was born.
So will celebs snatch up the group's pieces for their Hollywood Hills homes and New York studio lofts? That remains to be seen ... but Culkin and his pals will be hocking their wares at Le Poisson Rouge in Greenwich Village from Sept. 13 - Dec. 15.
