dready the cayman cookout and the 3 amigos

                    dready art ‘how to cook curry goat/the 3 amigos’ – limited edition fund raising print
                    available in 3 sizes … 16×5, 24×12, 36×18 inch (or by special order)

in the lead up to the cayman cookout at the ritz-carlton, grand cayman in 2018 the ritz asked if i would do a special dready of the three chefs, Jose Andres, Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert, hosts of the cookout …

I’d done art for the ritz and for the cookout before – am very very fortunate that dready art hangs in the gallery at the Ritz and is for sale on merchandise in their gift shops …

there was a hint that maybe i could do a beach scene for the project, but instead i imagined that here were the 3 visiting chef’s showing a ‘local’ audience how to cook curry goat … and in the corner of the art the goat shows up looking out and looking surprised that they’re talking about him …

The art was for sale, and for them, the Ritz, to give as PR gifts to media and VIPs and was signed by the three chefs …

                         signed by the chefs.

and I had to show up for people to meet me …

it turned out that that cayman cookout was to be the last time all three friends were together in one place … and it turned out that the art meant something to them.

so, last month, when in an IGTV chat Eric Ripert and Jose Andres announced that June 25th, Anthony Bourdain’s birthday, would be Bourdain day, and given the extraordinary times we’re living in, we decided to break out the print and the PR around it for a cayman food bank charity … and the NYT liked our idea …

and one on the wall in california ….

big love …
