I first saw his paintings hung in the Chelsea Hotel in New York about 5 years ago. It was my first time staying at the Chelsea, a place that soon after became my home. The Chelsea is filled with amazing art but I was instantly drawn to hawks above all others. The faces felt like they were staring back at me. they had an intense eeriness to them that was strangely comforting, they were like windows into another world.

I later met Hawk and became good friends with him and his partner Mia Hanson (an amazing photographer). He is the most talented artist Ive ever known. You can see more of his work at the Chelsea Hotel or http://hem.passagen.se/hawkalfredson/
