Is this an art exhibition of #SethRogen nudes?Is this an art exhibition of Seth Rogen nudes? Paper & Strings alt.culture maven, the photographer Henny Garfunkel, recentlyvisitedPrinted Matter and was blown away by the simplegraphite drawings by Christopher Shulz. Heres what she had to say: "These are not pinups of Joe Dallesandro!!!!! Known for his booklets/zine Pin Ups, Schulzs series focuses on one man, SETH. Is this series Seth Rogen, or a Seth Rogen lookalike? No matter, these wonderfully rendered drawings of a nude, chubby man in playful positions brought out the bear-lover in me. Im not gay and Im not a man, but theres something warm and cuddly about these drawings that brought a smile to my face. Hey, any art show that brings a smile is welcome." Original drawings, $200. Seth booklet, $10. PIN UPS zine, $14
