A chicken, a portrait of performance artist Leigh Bowery, and bear that looks like Adolph Hitler — you can find all that and more in Michael Alig’s art studio. The former king of the New York City club kids was freed from prison on May 5 after being jailed for 17 years over the murder of Andre “Angel” Melendez, and is now starting to show off his artwork.

Alig provided a glimpse of his work last night via Twitter.

Apparently, a gallery showing is in the works, but in the meantime, check out the tweets below. We have a feeling these piece are going to be very hot property very soon…
