Late last month in a blog post to his portfolio site, brendanmurphyart.com, grifter, social climber and art world conman Brendan Murphy confessed he is still hoping to donate a very large painting of his. He posed next to it (and an attractive assistant) for scale: We are hopeful to donate “LETS TAKE A WALK” to a chidren’s hospital or somewhere where children can enjoy this big gorgeous piece. Perhaps a public space, a library, etc. If you have any ideas or suggestions please reach out below. This gorgeous piece needs a home and it needs to be enjoyed by as many children as possible. It's likely that Brendan is just getting antsy that he won't be able to write off this donation on his 2015 taxes. But I'm sure he'll find an easy mark. For those of you who don't remember Brendan, he was Robin's partner in crime at the 15 Foundation. Some of the foundation's most notable acts of charity include donating a pool table to a boys club in Miami, finding out facts about Guatemala by vacationing there, taste-testing wine in beautiful Sonoma, and teaching smart black New Jersey high school students how to fill out college entry forms. Brendan donated the flower logo to the 15 Foundation, and his company, Solfire Gear, sold T-shirts with Brendan's artwork on them to the 15 Foundation for a cool $7,500. Robin was so smitten with Brendan that she wore his ugly Solfire shirts to promote his business in a series of cooking videos she taped with chef Gavan Murphy. (The web series was called "Vegucating Robin," and came out a couple years before her book "The Vegucation of Robin.") Robin had seen other rich people her age with younger blondes on their arms, so she believed she actually had a shot with Brendan. But Brendan ... -- how should I put this delicately -- Brendan's was a flower that couldn't stay planted in just one vase (no matter how large that vase was) ... Here he is with a blonde friend of Robin's, moments before giving her his flower. Robin and Brendan severed ties, and the 15 Foundation collapsed. The closest Robin came to discussing the matter on the air was saying she was "betrayed" by someone very close to her. Here's a typical example of Brendan's art thievery. He took the nonsensical words of Jean-Michael Basquiat -- Traced the art of Stina Persson -- And combined the two to make this: Back in 2010, I was so inspired by Brendan's counterfeit art that I decided to make a ripoff myself, using Brendan's signature style and incorporating his new muse into the mix. (And with words that are much less confusing than the ones he uses.) While the 15 Foundation may be long gone -- its founders having outrun the law years ago -- Solfire Gear is still in full swindling swing. In fact it's now called Solfire World. And I'm happy to see that while Brendan continues to rip off other artists for his personal work, Solfire rips off Nike for their new apparel -- even using Nike's trademark Futura Condensed Extra Bold typeface: Anyway, if you work for a children's hospital and want to get in on the ground floor of Brendan's latest scam, he invites you to contact him through his blog: here.
