Walk this way

One of the great things about the Watari-um is that you’re always in for a surprise. John Lurie is a musician, co-founder of The Lounge Lizards, a jazz ensemble. He is an actor, director and producer. And he is a painter, focusing on this art form since his 2000 diagnosis of Lyme disease. Art lovers can be snobby about these multi-hyphenates, often thinking one person can’t be good at all these different types of art. But his paintings. His paintings, mostly watercolor and some oil, are really beautiful. Quirky, ephemeral, with a sense of humor, and with nods of Klee and Moreau and Basquiat.
