The sequence of events played out as such: we ask artist/musician Dalton Portella our usual “10 Questions” – he sends the responses back with an original artwork – we’re epically flattered and grateful.
LT: I am/We are a? (as in, what’s your deal?)
LT: Why Montauk?
DP: Best surf on the east coast.
LT: Long or short?
DP: Whatever the wave calls for. If you are talking espresso, short.
LT: In your opinion – what is the best, or worst, thing about Montauk?
DP: The isolation.
LT: Low Tide or High Time?
DP: Low Tide
LT: What is your favorite place to eat – or drink – in Montauk?
DP: Harvest for Shrimp Pasta, Westlake Fish House, sushi.
LT: If I could instantly do the one thing I wished for – right now – that would be…
DP: Go surf empty Bali
LT/DP: Before I sleep I always _create something.
LT: Favorite artist? Why?
DP: Francis Bacon, his work speaks to me.
LT/DP: I love to _create_ because it _is what I do best.
Dalton Portella’s “Shark Room” will be on display at The Gallery at Atlantic Terrace
