Unveiling of Harif Guzman’s highly anticipated collection Now That I’m Sober?76 Wooster, the private studio of artist Harif Guzman opens its doors for one night only during Armory Arts Week to debut his newest collection, Now That I’m Sober? Thursday, March 7 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.Harif Guzman, born March 23, 1975, in Venezuela, spent much of his childhood surrounded by his mother and sisters and was influenced strongly by his father (a printer and typesetter). As a little boy in 1980, Guzman came to New York City. Guzman calls New York not only home but his canvas and inspiration. The inspiration of his work derives from mechanical reproduction and a unique technique that refuses the deadening effects of iconographical conformity. Further inspiration is the result of Guzman's earliest experiences of image making and the honest craft that he encountered working in his father’s print shop as a boy. The subsequent trajectory of his path from shop worker turned street-smart skate punk, to a worldwide, well respected contemporary artist, involves an alchemical shift as humble cast-offs evolve into fine art in his studio.Guzman’s newest works are inspired through moments of sobriety. Completely ridding himself of all mind altering substances, including alcohol, the well recognized contemporary painter and street artist who recently grabbed the attention of world renowned collector Lester Marks and CAMH Director, Bill Arning during his February Houston, Texas show has saved something truly special for his beloved supporters in NYC.While the rest of the city continued partying, Harif Guzman wandered the streets of New York staring at the skyline of which so many of us are familiar with but in a mindset he wouldn’t consider his typical. Challenging himself personally and artistically, especially during the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, Guzman captures feelings of loneliness that exist within personal change. Painting these pieces only when sober, he mixes personally aberrant techniques and peculiar colors provoking an in-depth contemplation of resistance and strength.

Discover the book that puts a face on happiness
In 2009, photographer Joseph Peter traveled through fifty African nations in seventy-five days and shot 150,000 images—mostly portraits of joyous, proud, glorious faces. He photographed presidents and heads of state, soldiers and workers, and children of all ages. He captured their smiles, their laughter, their humanity.
He captured their happiness.
First collected in a special handmade leather-bound edition, Joseph Peter’s “book of happiness” was originally presented to Nelson Mandela as a heartfelt personal gift. Now, with this stunning paperbound edition, you can experience for yourself the joyful spirit of a place and its people—a dazzling and optimistic vision of Africa that is as simple, beautiful, and universal as a child’s smile.

You’ve probably watched “Lost Boys of Sudan” or “God Grew Tired of Us” in theaters and you cried your heart out and subconsciously still wonder, how the hell are these lost boys from Sudan adapting to the American life-style?
Well, it’s your lucky day because they are doing fine, well, at least we know one of them is and his name is Ger Duany. No, he wasn’t in either films mentioned above, but, he was one of the child soldiers and lost boys who fled the war in the formerly united Sudan and walked for miles to get to a refugee camp in Ethiopia then Kenya, and after many struggles he was one of the lucky ones that made it out on a plane to America.
In America, he encountered many obstacles but fate led him to his debut on Hollywood's silver screen where he played a refugee in the movie “I Heart Huckabees”. Director David O. Russell said he wanted someone who endured the real life experience of being a refugee to play the role. Soon after, Ger met supermodel Tyson Beckford, who saw Ger's modeling potential which opened doors to a modeling career and a shoot with photographer Norman Watson and many other photographers.
And so during all these years and the distance he lost touch with his family and land, but in January 2011, he hopped onto another plane this time back to South Sudan to vote for independence. And in July 2011, South Sudan finally got its well-deserved freedom and Ger was there to celebrate his new nation's independence, search for his family, and help build South Sudan.
Awesome right?!? Don’t you think this story would make a heartfelt real-life documentary? The kind that would complete the Lost Boys of Sudan trilogy that we got going on here? Well, the good news is that award winning Kenyan filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu (From a Whisper, Pumzi ) has been documenting Ger’s life for the past year and she has captured some wonderful footage and the documentary is in the final stage of production. We're very close to completing this unique documentary and like any creatively awesome and life changing endeavor, we need moolah to finish this project. So we’re knocking at your door and hoping you’ll pledge and donate what you can to finish the editing of this unique story. We’re counting on you to help us see this through!
