CWGB Talk@Piergo 2000 Show #2 -Facebook phenom Oliver Wasow is an acclaimed photography-based artist who also ran one of the best East Village art galleries in the 1980's: C.A.S.H Newhouse. Not only is his work in international collections, it has also graced the covers of Popular Mechanics and Visonaire. We, on the other hand, had noticed that he had garnered a huge following on Fb for his amazingly funny found photographs. He was working on a major book of found photographs. It was quite an interview that began on an easy pace, but like a sentence that scrunches down to tiny letters at the end - you could say that's what happened - he needed an hour and we only had 20 minutes. He was great, but never said a word to me since. I guess we could have added actual images but got sidetracked or I got lazy. Check out his site though, wonderful work. Correction - the gallery is named Pierogi 2000 is now corrected on the headline - sorry!
