Attention hot, starving artists. Do you model? (And not in an Ashley Dupré sort of way.) Or have you at least entertained totally elaborate fantasies about it? Because we want to help you have a chance to live the dream. A casting-director pal of the Cut reached out to us, looking for male models for an upcoming shoot for Men’s Journal. The catch? You’ve got to be an artiste — the real kind, paintbrushes and all. And you thought the arts were underappreciated! The info:

I am looking for men 20s-40s who are painters that ideally have their own studios, and have exhibited at galleries and can say that this is their avocation. Men should be between 20-40. Should be 5’9-6’2 in height. A magazine will feature them in a July fashion story that is about NY-based painters. The photo shoot will be April 9th and 10th. The magazine would like to photograph men in their actual studios. Shoot will be 3-4 hours one of the above mentioned dates.

So budding Basquiats might want to hop to it and send your info and a photo to And when, just coincidentally, your work starts showing at Gagosian, try not to forget the little people who helped you out along the way. We’ll be there in the back of the room, beaming with pride.
