From July 19th-July 21st, Sailor Jerry’s annual Cobrafest provided a wild alternative to all the other, tamer music festivals going on in Chicago. Our Nate “Igor” Smith was there, and he made a lot of friends.
He came to New York and got Charles Saatchi to sell some paintings. He wooed Leo Castelli and is getting awfully friendly with his artists. He has a "past," a future, and a slick wardrobe. He's Larry Gagosian, the man the art world loves to hate.
