Sheik ‘N’ Beik met Vincent seven years ago and immediately recognized his unique

artistic talents in what some could call “unconventional” art. Vincent is tattooed nearly head to

toe, and seems like the kind of person you would be intimidated by. But after speaking to him,

getting to know him, the passions and ambitions he had and still has, portrayed a man that had

suffered quite a bit from his childhood, and was still learning how to heal his wounds.

All of Vincent’s paintings are done using blood. His own blood. The blood is collected

intravenously into Vacutatiner tubes which are then refrigerated, and used one by one as needed

throughout the paintings’ progress. Because of this tedious process, only one project can be

worked on at a time, working up to 12 hours a day, 3 to 5 days a week. His process has only been

interrupted due to illness, extenuating family circumstances, or other obligations. The shading of

his paintings is done by having tubes of different consistencies of diluted blood, giving each

artwork an intricate three-dimensional perspective.

Vincent’s body of work is unlike any other artist’s. The process he uses is extremely time

consuming, and because of this, it has taken him seven full years to make about fifteen

beautifully detailed pieces. Due to the amounts of blood he takes from his body, there is always a

certain amount of recovery time before he can collect more blood, extending the time it takes to

finish or start a new painting. Therefore, Vincent can create up to three paintings a year, making

each and every single piece of his, extremely unique.

By using his own blood to create his work, he is siphoning the life force which contains

his own psychic energy, while giving it an outlet and form. In doing so, he is essentially

dissolving the barrier between artist and art in a most literal and immediate sense. He has

become his work, and as a result, it has guided him.

This is why Vincent’s exhibit launch is going to be an astonishing event that will leave an

imprint on the art world. Sheik ‘N’ Beik is ready to share Vincent with the world and expose his

talents to everyone. The opening of his exhibit is April 16th from 6 pm till 9 pm, and will run

until April 30th, located at the Dorian Grey Gallery in New York City. Also be sure to come see

his live performance at Up & Down on April 17th from 11 pm till 4 am, celebrating his gallery

launch.

    As a label, we are quickly crawling out of our infancy. Following the success of Spotlight Diktat, Peter Corvaia has bestowed upon us two tracks to continue our streak of innovative electronic music. Honey In Orbit’s elegant complexity, can only be explained through Peter’s background in the sciences, as a PhD student in Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology. He not only strives to perfect how you hear through the improvement of cochlear implants, but also perfect what you hear through his music.

Sheik ‘N’ Beik is a mechanism filtered from the electronic ether, generating euphoric sediment in all willing hosts with whom it comes in contact, Sheik ‘N’ Beik’s multi faceted sonic and visual creations operate in communal, sensory driven fields where our engineers act as gatekeepers for such transcendental experiences. These fields form spontaneously and globally while Sheik ‘N’ Beik’s fixed, amorphous node pulsates in NYC. As our growth cycle continues and we reach higher levels of consciousness we also act as a biosphere offering a nurturing habitat where our engineers are free to bask under the dome of our mind expanding experiment.
