Weekend Heller: The Hairman Painteth
By: Steven Heller | November 17, 2018
If you live, lived or visited New York, you’ve had a cut at least once at Astor Place Hairstylists. “Big Mike Takes Lunch” by filmmaker Nicolas Heller, is a documentary that captures a day in the life of Michael Saviello, manager of 40 years for the iconic East Village barber shop, Astor Place Hairstylists. For the past year, Mike has devoted his 45-minute lunch break to something he hasn’t done since high school… Painting.
In conjunction with the screening of the film, Big Mike will be having his first ever art show at Astor Place Hairstylists on November 17th at 8:30pm.
