Uncle Mario’s
New York Hell’s Kitchen

Rescued on April 13, 2013, at the corner of 42nd Street and 9th Avenue a mannequin from Monetti’s pizza.


Mummified in my studio, its history as well as Hell’s Kitchen’s recorded in hieroglyphic style on canvas strips. Set on a golden base and donated on May 17, 2013 to Uncle Mario’s pizzeria, at 739 9th Avenue, on the occasion of the “Artists in the Kitchen” studio tours.
