The Jonathan Levine always has great art shows. Currently, Natalia Fabia – Punk Rock Rainbow Sparkle is up. Loving the subject! “In the artist’s words: “Punk rock is one of my true loves. Punk to me is an attitude, a lifestyle. Punk is a middle finger, punk is do-it-yourself, do what you want. It’s a kind of freedom. I’m attracted to my subjects for having that quality.

In this part of the World, this is some serious stuff. If you’re feeling a little dearing, perhaps you can get out one of your old Holloween costumes and go for it.

Denis Charles Pratt was born in Sutton, Surrey, the fourth child of solicitor Spencer Charles Pratt (1871–1931) and former governess Frances Marion Pratt (née Phillips) (1873–1960); he changed his name to Quentin Crisp in his third decade after leaving home and cultivating his outlandishly effeminate appearance to a standard that both shocked contemporary Londoners and provoked homophobic attacks.
