Richy Z, is a friend that i have recently met thru one of my friends at the IFC, and happens to be my neighbor in the same loft space that i work out of, its amazing to meet someone as energetic and as passionate as he is about his craft and is definitely much wiser than me.
Richard is a 65 year old man, that is a practicing QiGong artist, which is according to wikipedia, literally “Life Energy Cultivation”) is a practice of aligning breath, movement, and awareness for exercise, healing, and meditation, some people can also make it for added strength.
here is a video of Richy z on youtube, (if you’re ADD like me fast forward to the 1:30 second mark for the action)
Richy’s philosophy is this never ending energy flow, and these amazing sculptures and toys.
Richy Z’s first solo show, is happening at the IFC on July 22nd, and should be an action packed one. Go check it out if you are in the area and feel the energy of the swirlies, what other mall can let you view such next level art, buy a mac book pro (new one) and eat at fanciest japanese restaurant all under one roof ?
good luck to my friend Richy Z and say hello to him if you see him around !
