ACEDARTER
1951-2010 (actual date of death unknown)

Acedarter was considered one of the true Renaissance figures of Park Slope, Brooklyn's formative years. As a writer, artist, photographer, architect and accomplished lover, he embodied what is now imitated by those who hang onto coat tails.

Acedarter's first photographs are as yet undiscovered, as he forgot to put film in the camera. Ace studied photography under Arnold Gassen and architecture under John Hejduk. He is a featured photographer for the Doll and Toy Museum of NY and the website Enjoy Brooklyn. As an architect, he has three NEA grants to his credit.

The bulk of Ace?s portfolio represents an Oeuvre cut short by his untimely death. Some say Acedarter was executed Mafia style, in an abandoned parking lot by the editorial board of Lurch Magazine. Others, insist he was beaten to death by two drunken transsexuals under the Boardwalk at Coney Island. The Estate of Acedarter maintains that neither of these stories are true and that the artist died of natural causes brought on by a broken heart.
