Christopher Walken is watching you
Not your typical art show: Last week at Diane von Furstenberg’s gallery all the portraits on the walls were of one man: Christopher Walken. The show, “Sundays With Chris,” by painter/financier John W. Codling drew a motley mix of artists, power brokers and Wall St. types, among them Damon Dash, Dustin Yellin, Alexander-Dexter Jones and Mick Rock. Codling (who has never met actually Walken) has been telling everyone that he adopted Walken as his muse when the financial crisis hit. (Some of the names of his canvases: Walken This Way, Baby Walken, I Can’t Stop Walken.) Guests bid on the paintings; the sales benefited the cancer charity Team Continuum.
