1AM SF gallery presents...

6th Street Beautification

1AM Gallery
1000 Howard Street
San Francisco, CA 94103 USA

December 20, 2008
TIME: 7:00pm - 10:00pm

To celebrate the holidays and the spirit of giving, 1AM is proud to present the "6th Street Beautification" exhibition. 1AM is donating a percentage of proceeds from all art sales to City Crossroads Community Center. Established in 1984, Crossroads, located in the heart of the city at 6th Street, is a place where SF youth can get off the streets and just be "kids" again rather than dealing with the pressures of the streets.

Gifted City Crossroads youth and members such as Camer1, Dennis Bullock, and Micronaut will be exhibiting their art alongside other local fine and urban artists. All the art will be affordable so come support the 6th Street Beautification with 1AM as we close out our groundbreaking year. As an added bonus, DJ Spinner D will be bringing you the soundtrack to the night with guest MC Cause.

Don't miss this chance to beautify your life with some art and the SOMA community center with your support!

The show opens on Dec 20th and runs through Feb 7th.

City Crossroads Community Center:

As many San Franciscans know, the Sixth Street corridor is a hard place to live, or even drive through for that matter. Drug abuse, alcohol abuse, the dealing of narcotic substances, prostitution and many other crimes are very evident in this area. What many don't know is that it is also a place where hundreds of youth and children reside. While most suburb children can play in their backyard with their friends or go to the park after school, the inner city does not provide many of these types of amenities. This is where City Crossroads Community Center comes in to play.

Established in 1984, Crossroads is place where kids can get off the streets and just be "kids" again rather than dealing with the pressures of the streets. It provides a safe environment where children and youth can play pool, basketball, video games, and many other activities. They can get help with homework, learn instruments, and immerse themselves in art. They get to go on field trips taking them out of the city, which for many is something that they experience for the first time. Crossroads is a place where they can seek counsel from the staff that loves them unconditionally. It is a place that believes in hope and healing in a neighborhood that is hurting.

* Los Angeles (Santa Monica) CA: December 13 - 20, 2008


Join world famous graffiti artist RISK from The Seventh Letter and friend of GuerillaOne, at his first ever-exclusive gallery show. All new pieces, from wood canvas to wall art, RISK pushes the limit and experiments with various styles you have never seen done in graffiti art.

In a career spanning twenty-six years, graffiti artist RISK has impacted the evolution of street writing as an artform in Los Angeles and worldwide. RISK pushed the limits further than any L.A. graffiti writer had ever gone before by bombing – what would later be referred to in the graffiti world as a "heaven" – on freeway overpasses and other highly visible spots throughout the city gaining major notoriety for his unique style. At the peak of his career he took graffiti from the streets and into the gallery with the launch of the Third Rail series of art shows; he later parlayed the Third Rail brand into the first authentic line of graffiti-inspired clothing.

In describing this exhibition, RISK states:

"Twenty-Six is a collection of letters that I painted as if I were painting on the streets, using what paint and materials I had in my studio, while making sure they all had the movement and the energy of good old-school graffiti. It is a celebration of where I'm at today and where I have come from. Twenty-six letters of the alphabet, twenty-six years; I can’t think of a better way to define myself and my view of graffiti art."

Contemplating the arc of his career, RISK attributes his success to something deep inside him. “I think I was the first to do a lot of stuff because I was competitive. I always wanted to take things one step further.”

Guerrilla Birthday

To celebrate its first birthday Guerrilla Galleries is having an unfeasibly fashionable show - and you've got an invite.

At the opening party knees-up that kicks off on 5th December at 7pm, there'll be a for-one-night-only-never-to-be-repeated birthday edition live screen print signed and numbered in your presence and oof it'll be lulli 

live painting, live print making, lots of artwork for sale at affordable prices, pass the parcel and pin the tail on the donkey. The last two were made up. Unless someone brings a donkey.

Artwork on show (and for sale) include new works from Ghostboy, Sums, Inkie, 45 RPM, plus a massive and awesome installation piece by Ziml - sections of which will be available to buy on the opening night at a discounted price. Jim Starr, Cheba and 3rd Eye's art will also be up for grabs. Ideal for Christmas presents, right kids? 

"I was too drunk to remember my own first birthday, so I'm quite looking forward to this one," slurred gallery owner Julian Monaghan, in his especially shaved birthday suit, which is a tad more wrinkled than last year.

As it's close to Christmas and a birthday celebration too, Satan's little helpers will hand out the mulled lager and slices of the fairy liquid cake. If you're lucky yule get stuffed.

This show will sadly be the last show at Guerrilla Galleries current space but will open it's doors at a new venue in the new year... watch this space for updates.

Goons & Bots


Friday, December 5, Phetus will reveal his latest collection of cutting-edge work to the public. From 7 to 11 p.m.

Phetus will be showcasing his work to not only those savvy enough to have been following him since his debut in 1988, but also those who only wish they were cool enough to say they knew this guy years ago. Raised on Long Island, home to some of the most influential artists in the rap community such as Busta Rhymes, Public Enemy, and De La Soul, Phetus says he started out during ìthe golden era when rap was good and urban art really took off.

His art combines bold, street-style elements with classic designs and the latest trends in pop art and culture to create fun, funky, and wacky works of art that artists such as LL Cool J, Ludacris, and Naughty by Nature have been wearing on custom clothing made by Phetus for years.

Across Rewriting

ACROSS REWRITING. Una collettiva "ridotta" dedicata al mondo graffiti writing e street art.

Inaugurazione  martedì 2 dicembre '08 ore 19.

In mostra fino al 7 gennaio 2009.

Orario: lunedì/sabato, ore 18.00/01.00.

Circolo Culturale AMANTES
via Principe Amedeo 38/A

Lo sviluppo di una ricerca personale si trasforma in una mostra collettiva alla ricerca di autori sospesi nel mondo graffiti writing/street art. Dopo il successo della prima edizione nel 2007 con la partecipazione di 78 artisti del nord Italia, quest‚anno ACROSS REWRITING si concentra sul fenomeno piemontese allargato a pochi inviti dal nord Italia e dalla Spagna. Oltre cinquanta partecipanti tra i più attivi in Piemonte si presentano in uno spazio/tela di 30 x 30 cm. ciascuno. Difficile usare lo spray a mano libera sulla superficie ridotta (anche se i più virtuosi non possono farne a meno) si prediligono acrilici, mascherine, resine, colle, sticker e carta, con, a volte, una deriva verso la pittura "pura" e meno "street".

La mostra collettiva ridotta ACROSS REWRITING è promossa ed ospitata, grazie al contributo Regione Piemonte, dal circolo culturale AMANTES a Torino, uno spazio al confine tra galleria d'arte e locale di svago fondato nel 1996, dove è possibile dialogare con gli autori davanti a un bicchiere e in modo informale.

ACROSS REWRITING è un percorso di avvicinamento a "REWRITING '09", la quarta edizione di una rassegna sempre rivolta al fenomeno graffiti writing / street art ma performativa. Si svolgerà tra marzo e aprile e darà modo ai visitatori di ammirare gli artisti all'opera.

ACROSS REWRITING inaugura in un periodo di confusione generale, in cui i politici promettono ai writers la galera (Berlusconi) e poi li sdoganano: «Le scritte sui muri sono la lingua dei popoli, da bacchettoni colpirle» (Bossi), dove la Normale di Pisa mette vincoli dei Beni Culturali a certe scritte del Sessantotto e Sgarbi propone a Bossi il vincolo anche per "La Lega ce l'ha duro" (Fonte: La Stampa. 6.11.08). A Torino, di questo passo, metteremo a tutela "Forza Toro" e "poverini".

Pop Disaster

Non esiste più nulla. Tutto cambia. Si evolve. Quello che un tempo era pericoloso, oggi è diventato innocuo e venduto alle masse. L'urgenza espressiva invece è sempre in divenire. Fluttua e i suoi confini vengono continuamente ridefiniti. Sicuramente si nutre di fantasia e la fantasia non è altro che un aspetto della memoria svincolata dall’ordine del tempo e dello spazio. Forse è per questo che chi si sente artista vive sempre diviso tra sogno e realtà. Ma la domanda sorge spontanea: Oggi, esiste ancora l’arte? Pop Disaster, non vuole rispondere a questo quesito. Pop Disaster, nasce per dare risalto ad una grande quantità di spunti creativi in conflitto tra loro. Per dare valore a fenomeni anomali. Per dimostrare che il contenuto ha il sopravvento sulla forma. Per dimostrare che la vera arte è gioco e che non ci sono leggi precise per vivere nuove esperienze sensoriali legate alla nostra cultura. Pop Disaster, dimostra che l’atto creativo è al centro del mondo e che se cerchi consolazione nelle cose durevoli, Pop Disaster ti cambierà la vita!

Presso la Galleria Il Trifoglio Nero questo sabato la performance “ L’ATLAS D’UN MONDE L’AUTRE” : una bussola gigante in Piazza Matteotti opera dell’artista parigino L’ATLAS”

Sabato 15 novembre 2008 alle ore 15 in Piazza Matteotti si terrà la performance “LATLAS D’UN MONDE L’AUTRE” dell’artista parigino “L’ATLAS”. L’evento è proposto dalla Galleria “IL Trifoglio Nero”, Piazza Matteotti 80r e segna l’inaugurazione della mostra dello stesso artista presso la galleria che sarà aperta da sabato fino al 13 dicembre 2008.

L’ATLAS è un artista parigino che parte dall’arte di strada e, dopo 10 anni trascorsi a realizzare graffiti su “tutti i supporti che la città poteva offrirgli” ha intrapreso percorsi per nuovi tipi di materiali conservando l’interesse per la città, le sue strade, le mappe mentali necessarie per abitarla. A Genova realizzerà, seconda performance di questo tipo dopo una per il Centre Pompidou nel maggio scorso, una sorta di bussola gigante “disegnata” con i materiali che l’artista utilizza su quasi tutta Piazza Matteotti.

La costruzione dell'opera si farà collettivamente. Infatti la gigantesca forma è formata da 500 singoli pezzi che le persone che vogliono partecipare possono prendere e posizionare, sotto la direzione dell’artista. Alla fine i diversi componenti dell'opera saranno distribuiti.

Josh Goldstein and Eric Orr

opening reception - Thursday, November 6th, 2008 6pm - 9pm

Acclaimed Bronx graffiti writer Eric Orr is best known for being one of the originators of icon graffiti in the early 1980's. His icon, Robot Head, was so named by Keith Haring, with whom he collaborated on a variety of projects.

Lately, Orr has focused on using MTA subway maps and authentic subway car signs acquired directly from the transit system as texture behind his iconic pictograms. He mounts these signs on canvas and mason boards, adding items often found in the stations, from metro cards to trash to the ever present advertising signs.

Brooklyn artist Josh Goldstein captures New York City bodega and Coney Island signage, Chinese take-out menus, and other urban flotsam; he then blows the images apart and reconstructs them in his sculptural photo collages mounted on salvaged plywood. Inspired by the grit and decay of New York City, his work pays homage to the churning engine of the city.

At the opening reception, art collectors will be able to create their own works of art using Goldstein's blocks and his "U pick, I stick" method.

Big Geezers

Artists participating in the Big Geezers show include MORCKY TROUBLES (Italy), MISS RIEL (Iceland), GALO (Italy), WAYNE HORSE (Germany), PEZ (Spain), MINIVILA (Croatia), FLYING FORTRESS (Germany), and THE LONDON POLICE (U.K).

Morcky’s roots are in graffiti although he has experience with photography, animation and video. These days he keeps an eye on the interaction of his paintings and drawings with their surroundings including walls and elements in the streets. Morcky also enjoys playing with perspective. Galo painted nearly every surface imaginable: fat bellies and flat ones, old walls and young electricity boxes, toilets and fences, ceilings and floors, canvas, wood, bikes and cars…sometimes he gets carried away. Obsessed with drawing, Horse loves to create situations, rather than whole stories, in a wide range of media. He leaves space for a story to evolve out of small apparently unconnected fragments, creating a different experience based on the individual’s own perspective. Pez took his signature smiling fish character to the streets to spread good vibrations and its success has spawned a host of smiling sibling characters. Minivila, a truly international artist who was raised in Croatia and is now based in Amsterdam, marries fashion, illustration, painting and music. Munich based artist Flying Förtress started to do classic graffiti in the early 90’s. After a hiatus where he focused on graphic design he hit the streets again with his infamous Teddy Troops. The London Police is a collective best known for their iconic “LADS” characters. The group travels extensively allowing the LADS to infiltrate cities around the world.

Prescription Art's exhibition

Outside In

October 30th sees the opening night of Prescription Art's first exhibition - 'Outside In' - featuring 20 of the hottest street artists from across the globe including: Zeus (FR), L'Atlas (FR), Dain, Broken Crow, Bortusk Leer, FKDL, Case, Damon Ginandes, Deuce Seven (USA), Freek van Haagen (NL) and EGO LEONARD (NL). Showcasing the breadth of talent & styles hitting walls worldwide, each artist has a strong & distinctive voice – whilst avoiding clichéd stencils and subject matter.

In many cases this is the first time the artists have exhibited in the UK, despite having huge popularity in their own countries. On the other hand Zeus has been a big name on the UK graffiti scene since the 1980s. Overall this is the freshest line-up of talent assembled for any show this year, and will feature some genre-defining pieces. And a 3 meter lego man, Ego Leonard.

The exhibition runs until 6th November (11-6), and takes place at the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane (entrance from Ely's Yard) London, UK.

Le 18 février 2008, la maison Artcurial | Briest - Poulain - F. Tajan était fière de lancer sur le marché français la toute première vente entièrement dédiée à l’art urbain (art graffiti et post-graffiti).

Soixante dix tableaux et objets s’offraient donc aux nombreux amateurs collectionneurs, mobilisés par la campagne médiatique provoquée par cet événement. Affichant un résultat de 461 000 €, la vente enregistrait plusieurs records : 29 700 € pour Futura 2000, 43 400 € pour John Crash Matos, ou 18 600 € pour Blek le Rat…

Des résultats probants qui marquent la consécration d’une création jusqu’alors restée dans l’ombre et qui illustre l’engouement réel que cet art suscite. Forte de ce succès, notre maison française prépare dès à présent une nouvelle session prévue le 28 octobre 2008 et qui verra les œuvres exposées pendant la FIAC. Sont déjà annoncées plusieurs collections européennes importantes avec des œuvres de Futura 2000, John Crash Matos, Daze, Toxic, Rammelzee, Dondi White…

Poursuivant sur son impulsion du 18 février 2008, Artcurial | Briest - Poulain - F. Tajan consacrera également un chapitre aux œuvres historiques de Jonone. La scène pochoiriste sera quand à elle représentée à travers les travaux de Nick Walker, Blek le Rat, Jef Aérosol, Miss Tic… Enfin, la jeune création française ne sera pas en reste dans ce paysage urbain aux accents internationaux. En effet, ses représentants les plus en vue sur la scène des expositions parisiennes seront de la partie. Nasty, Snake,Yaze, Alexöne, Babou, Misterchat, Vuille, L’Atlas, Space Invader… investiront les murs de l’Hôtel Dassault pour la seconde fois cette année. Gageons que le graffiti remportera un nouveau succès pour le plus grand plaisir des inconditionnels du Street Art.

Second Annual Exhibit Features 60 Avant-Garde Urban Contemporary Female Artists

Queens, NY (September 2008)— We are excited to announce the second annual YOUNITY art exhibition entitled Heart & Soul opening on October 17th, 2008 at Alphabeta in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. As a celebratory theme between 60 international women artists and what they identify as "heart and soul," the exhibit promises an urban landscape installation piece that unifies and pushes the boundaries of graffiti, photography, urban contemporary art and fine art.

The exhibition will showcase original artwork by current YOUNITY members as part of an indoor/outdoor site specific installation that pays homage to the urban landscape. Members include world-renowned artists: MAD C (Germany), Aiko Nakagawa (Japan), Faith47 (South Africa), Krista Franklin (Chicago), and Diana McClure (NYC), to name a few. Only 60 out of 300 female urban artists were selected to participate in this special exhibit. Works will range from hand-styles and graphics to collage and abstract riffs---all expressing ideas on female identity, the urban habitat, life and love.

The exhibit will also launch the Heart and Soul book, comprised of 60 artworks formatted for a 5x8 inch postcard-style flipbook. It is the first publication in the YOUNITY collector's book series that will showcase the work of current YOUNITY members. The Heart and Soul book will retail for $19.50 and will be sold at targeted, limited locations. Premiere copies will be available at the YOUNITY Heart & Soul event. Overall, only 120 books in this special series will be available.

YOUNITY is the first ever international women's urban contemporary art collective that brings female artists into a global networking system as a means to create art exhibitions, installations, books and a much needed archive of women's urban contemporary art. With the success of their premiere exhibit, The C R O S S O V E R, YOUNITY has become a sought after collective devoted to women with an inherent need to perfect their craft through self-expression, surpass male dominance and pass the torch on to younger female artists. For this project, only 60 out of 300 female urban artists were selected to participate with styles that range from hand-styles, graphics and collage to abstract riffs on the female identity, the urban habitat, life and love.

YOUNITY is in need of continued support to foster its self-publishing endeavors and independent growth. Any and all donations to the collective can be directed to: via PayPal.

Mike Giant

Opening reception, October 11th, 2008 from 7-11 pm. The show runs through November 1st premiering a solo exhibition of 60 plus works.

Recently retired from tattooing to focus on his fine art career, Giant also promotes his clothing line REBEL8, which he began here in San Francisco with partner Joshy D in 2003. Giant claims that although "it's been great to focus on drawings more than tattoos, admittedly [he] still enjoys working in skin on occasion." Like his art, the line highlights his trademark skulls, icons, and tattooed girls.

There is no denying Giant’s high skill level in creating the seamless images crafted by his Sharpie. Focusing now on his drawings, Giant has been able to add written comments and anecdotes to his illustrations welcoming viewers into his mind. His signature style harks back to old school print techniques that required defined line work and a steady hand, which Giant perfected through his studies of Architecture and Graphic Design. A stint in Amsterdam also influenced and added to Giant’s collection of works where he kicked back on his rented houseboat. Ultimately, it is Giant’s respect for a traditional technique; versus creating computer-generated images, and his attention to detail that warrant him a master at his craft.

Wreckless Abandon

Romon Kimin Yang aka Rostarr, was born in South Korea but has lived in NY since 1989. He has been a key figure in the city's underground art scene and has exhibited extensively throughout the United States, Asia and Europe.

His free-formed work comes across as a universe of abstract and geometrical shapes from which symbolic and iconographic elements emerge in elegant and incisive gestural strokes. His work is defined by an expression he calls 'Graphysics', meaning the fusion of graphic art and design and the physical laws governing the movement of energy. His work extends into the mediums of painting, digital media, sculpture, textile and public art projects with the Barnstormers collective.

Yang graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1993. In 2000, he was featured as one of I.D. magazine's "I.D. 40 under 30". In 2004, he was recognized as an honoree at the A.I.C.P. show held yearly at the New York Museum of Modern Art and his work has been reviewed by Art Forum, Modern Painters, The New York Times and among other prominent publications.

"Fanatic - A Group show of Excessive Enthusiasm"

BLVD is proud to present "Fanatic" a group show that explores the enthusiasm expressed in "Fan" art. The artists participating in this show were given the task of creating art that is in tribute to something that they are truly a fan of. It did not matter whether it was related to entertainment, though much of it is, or cultural pursuits but had to be straight from the heart. BLVD Gallery is fanatic about the vibrant talent here in Seattle so most of the artists involved are from the area and are showing with us for the first time. Intermixed with them are some veteranos like Pars and Ego, as well as a surprise installation from longtime gallery fixtures Zeta Mek.

Exhibition: Urban Pin Up

From the October 5th until November 9th work of Asia and Yereth Jansen will be exposed at 'Skek:

Zeedijk 4 - 8
1012 AX Amsterdam


Sunday 5th of October, 16:00

During the exhibition several photos will be exposed, together with art objects created by Asia, which represent the style and theme of the project also brought forward in the photos. The exposed photos will be available for sale after the exhibition.

The project is inspired on early pin up styles seen in the 50s and 60s, most notably represented by Bettie Page, mixed with an underground style from the world of graffiti. The images strive to bring the two worlds in harmony with one another.

The power of the images lies in joining the two different styles into one; letting the two worlds meet harmoniously. This is represented in the clothing, make-up style, attributes and environment.

The suit has been created especially for the photo-shoot. The fan, umbrella and the gloves have been painted by Asia with Montana paint. The different attributes represent the female artist where two worlds meet.

The photos were taken in a squat in Amsterdam Noord; a place that has been the home to many graffiti artists and a fitting environment to our theme.

Joys … a piece of Me è il nuovo progetto espositivo Joys per Allegra Ravizza Art Project che inaugurerà nello spazio di via Gorani, 8 il 24 settembre alle 18:00.

Famoso per il suo lettering tridimensionale, Joys presenterà in mostra lavori inediti, tra cui un progetto site specific, sculture, nuovi loop ed evoluzione 3d della ricerca bidimensionale murale dell’artista, che nelle sue opere fonde brillanti cromatismi con geometrie e architetture impossibili à la Escher, unendole all’irriverente potenza espressiva del writing.

Da anni l’artista infatti ha esteso il suo linguaggio anche alla scultura, utilizzando materiali diversi ma mantenendo sempre uno stile inconfondibile, quello stesso stile che da oltre 15 anni lo rende inconfondibile sui muri di tutto il mondo, da Sarajevo a New York City, a Venezia e Milano.

1992. Come molti writer comincia scrivendo il suo nome su un muro. Come molti focalizza la sua ricerca sul lettering, ma in breve tempo Joys dà vita al suo lavoro, che dopo esser nato sul muro prende vita e si arricchisce di spessore e matericità. La sua ricerca va oltre le due dimensioni e acquista nel tempo una plasticità che si appropria del territorio e della fruizione di un pubblico involontario e inconsapevole.

In bilico tra undeground e istituzionale, la ricerca di Joys è stata riconosciuta dagli addetti ai lavori del sistema dell’arte come inedita e personalissima, grazie anche al suo maniacale studio del lettering: forme che nel tempo si stratificano e si arricchiscono di livelli e linee con cui Joys ha costruito labirinti impossibili dove nulla è lasciato al caso e le forme ubbidiscono sempre a precise regole logiche e geometriche.

Anche con Joys… piece of me, l’artista prosegue nella direzione della geometria e del cromatismo in una mostra di cui il pubblico simbolicamente possiederà una parte, visto che gli inviti della mostra– che in inglese significa proprio un pezzo di me – sono realmente una parte di Joys e della sua operazione artistica, visto che componendoli si ricrea a grandezza naturale il prototipo del graffito realizzato in galleria, che avvolgerà lo spettatore in un labirinto di lettere, linee e colori.

Realizzato in poche ore sulle pareti della galleria di Allegra Ravizza, il graffito non solo si potrà ammirare ultimato, ma anche durante i lavori di realizzazione, grazie al dvd che testimonierà l’azione di live painting dell’artista e che sarà disponibile in galleria il giorno dell’inaugurazione.

Urban Nature

DENVER- Always an urban oasis, Denver Botanic Gardens is embracing the city in new ways this year. The Gardens' 2008 signature exhibition, "Urban Nature," explores the intersection of the urban environment and the natural world through art and horticultural practices, outlining strategies that all city dwellers can employ to evoke the natural world as green space diminishes amid concrete and steel.

A sense of contrast, yet balance, with the natural gardens will be realized through paintings by more than 10 local, national and internationally-known street-style painters and mural artists.

Among these prominent international personalities are artists Lady Pink, Mac, and Siloette - all of whom have contributed to the ever-evolving history of street-style art. New York City-area community activist, Lady Pink, has transitioned from painting subway trains in the '70s and '80s to creating grand-scale murals throughout New York City. Phoenix-based Mac draws inspiration from the surrounding Mexican and Chicano culture of the American Southwest, and cites artists Caravaggio, Mucha, and Vermeer as influential. Siloette, who currently resides in Los Angeles, is recognized mainly for her feminine subject matter, unique flowing style and organic ingredients; which can easily be compared to a modern interpretation of art nouveau. Frequently, dominant black outlines reference her previous work in stained glass.

Other local and regional talent includes artists Amanda Marie, Elisabeth Bunker, Delton Demarest, Dread, Sophie Fernandez, Javier Flores, Stevon Lucero, Jolt, Mission, Adam Moorhead, Todd Robinson, Ian Rumley, and Wiser.

These street murals will be created on temporary panels situated within the natural beauty of the Gardens' York Street site, forging visual relationships that both surprise and resonate. The panels, produced by James Hardie Building Products are made of environmentally friendly materials including wood pulp, cement, sand and water. These materials, which are low in toxicity and have been recycled up to four times, reflect the importance of sustainability to the Gardens' core values.

Balcony displays, container gardening, and the concept of the urban homestead and other unique horticultural practices for city dwellers will be highlighted, as well. These educational programs include discussions with author Rick Darke, who will give a talk titled "In Your Face: Ethics and Urban Ecology" on Tuesday, April 1, at 7 p.m. Darke will articulate his belief that all people should see and celebrate the dynamics of cultural and biological diversity, and find beauty in unlikely things and utility in common ground.

"'Urban Nature' seeks to demonstrate how, in a contemporary world that embraces industrialization and technology, the human connection with the earth requires more nurturing than ever," said Lisa Eldred, Director of Exhibitions and Programs. "Not only will the city be brought into the Gardens, the Gardens will venture out into the urban environment with programs and stimulating installations."

"Urban Nature" will include a Community Gardens feature that demonstrates the concepts of community gardening. This component will be complemented by original sculptures from Bill, Judy and Robert Schempp of "Mind to Metal." These metalworks will contain weather-resistant photographs by the Gardens' official photographer, Scott Dressel-Martin.

Marka27: Killa Instinct

Marka27's next dope vinyl figure, Killa Instinct, produced by Bic Plastics will be throwing down on both coasts with two release parties next month. Suru will drop Killa Instinct first in LA on Saturday, October 4th followed a week later by myplasticheartnyc in NYC on October 11th.

Marka and Bic Plastics have raised the bar with Killa Instinct. Transformed by toxic spray paint fumes, this mutated graff writer is ready for action with tools of the trade – a bad-ass removable gas mask, spray can, marker, bolt cutters, finger rings, and more.

Graff is part of Killa Instinct's being. So much so that he's got a spray can erupting out of his back. Don't you dare call him a hunch back though. The spray can which fuels his exploits directly through his gas mask also doubles as a secret stash with a removable top – for markers, an old school King or whatever else you want.

This original colorway of Killa Instinct stands roughly 8" tall, is limited to 300 pieces and will retail for $95. Check out great pics of the finished figure and packaging after the jump. We're pumped for this release, are you ?

GRILLED – A Dizzy Collage of Exhibition Street Art & Hip-Hop Art

Percolator Gallery -   134 Latrobe Tce, Paddington


Grilled will run at the Percolator Gallery for one exclusive week commencing with an Opening Reception on 25th September. The gallery will come alive with 1988 originators art, the music, the images and the stance that are stronger than ever. This exhibition will celebrate the work of these artists from Expo '88 with their new style in 2008.  Grilled will feature the works of 'old school' break-dancing brothers, Bill and James Moulton (who are the publishers of HYPE magazine - a globally distributed, colour lifestyle magazine based on Hip Hop subculture). In addition, Grilled will collectively present master pieces by Jason Heidke, Shannon Lawless, 'Mickey' Newman and Ron Hillier (MC CLINIC).

These artists are from Eagleby, the Southside district of Beenleigh, which has now become part of Logan City Council area. Growing up in this working-class suburb with countless blocks of public housing, they are only too aware of the injustices that the poorer people of Australia must face. This experience has influenced their conscious approach to both their Art and their politically-focused Music. They are the artists who have subverted public art spaces and originated the Highway murals colouring the sound-walls across south east Queensland. Everyone knows their work - from the Children's faces at Tugun, the Koalas at Daisy Hill to the funky Metro Jazz Musicians at the Juliette Street exit of the M1.

Two Sides to Every Boxcar: An Exhibition and Discussion with buZ blurr

Babylon Falling
1017 Bush Street (@ Jones)
San Francisco, CA 94109

buZ is driving up from his outpost in Arkansas (Surrealville, Principality of buZ) and heading to San Francisco for an exhibition of his artwork as well as an informal discussion.

The exhibition will be composed of a selection of photographs, cut stencils, collage work, and buZ’s famous artistamp portraits. buZ will lead a talk and Q&A about his introduction to and experiences with freight train boxcar art, the development of his style, his contribution to the mail art movement, the place of both boxcar art and mail art in the larger culture, and what he’s up to nowadays.

In addition to very small runs of homemade books we will also be selling a very limited (edition of 24) t-shirt designed by buZ blurr exclusively for Babylon Falling.

The opening reception will take place on Saturday, September 20th 2008 from 6-9pm. There will be drinks and music as always. The event is wheelchair accessible. The exhibition will run through October 19th.

A cult figure among contemporary freight train graffiti artists, Russell Butler aka Colossus of Roads aka buZ blurr considers himself, “a Life/Artist, documenting a non-art life with various media, primarily photography."

Working as a brakeman for the railroad, for thirty years buZ obsessively dispatched his distinctive moniker on the freight trains passing through the yards, quickly becoming one of the most prolific and well respected boxcar artists of all time.

Since discovering the mail art network in 1972 buZ has been a regular, active participant and has become famous for his meticulous artistamp portraits which document the various personalities he has encountered over the years at mail art conventions, hobo gatherings, and at his home in Gurdon Arkansas, where the most diligent of fans make the pilgrimage to pay their respects.

Though retired from the railroad buZ told Logan Hicks in 2004 that he is, “Still doing the boxcar icon dispatch, as well as spraying through stencils, and even gluing big collage composites onto the railcars; plus doing more correspondence and mail art, since I have retired. Currently enjoying embellishing large ink-jet phantasy collages with watercolors, paintstiks, charcoal, and Crayolas."

New Works by Shepard Fairey

Opening Reception - September 13th, 7-10pm

White Walls Gallery
835 Larkin Street
San Francisco, CA 9410

Over 100 pieces will go on display at White Walls in a timely new show called “Duality in Humanity." The show marks a bit of a departure for the artist, whose unique form of reverse propaganda emerged from the spirit of the punk movement. With this show, Shepard takes a step back from the ‘calls to action’ against mindless consumerism and war evidenced in previous shows like 1984ia, E Pluribus Venom and Imperfect Union. “The difference between this show and the previous ones is that now Obama is in the mix," Shepard said. His recent work reflects his own personal shift towards a new optimism, a direct result of his involvement with, and inspiration by, the powerful political ideals of Barack Obama.

The title of the show, “Duality of Humanity," is inspired by the peace-sign wearing US soldier in Vietnam, ‘Joker,’ in Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. A central piece is a child with a gun in his hand and a flower in his hat. That theme of soldiers and weapons bearing peace signs, or peace signs comprised of military effects, runs through many pieces in the show. Environmental themes also appear in some pieces, illustrating the tenuous balance between our dangerously uncontrolled consumption of non-renewable resources, and our well-intentioned eco-concerns. Suffering and hope are seamlessly merged in a visual mash-up that defies expectations and easy answers.

“Duality of Humanity" includes larger mixed media pieces on paper that has been covered with carefully collaged Ephemera, self-printed patterns and found clippings from printed media. The backgrounds provide a seductive painterly texture and visual subtext, often allowing apropos words and images to bleed through the iconic images printed over them. The multiple layers create a sense of depth, but also bring in temporal elements through preserved newsclippings, historic images and vintage printing effects. It is the images in the foreground, however, that give the work its power. They are crisp and provocative, communicating in a way that is direct and clear.

Foundation Rocks


Exhibition Private View on Friday 5th September - from 6.30pm - 9pm.
Exhibition closes on Monday 6th October

Limited Press Gallery
First Floor
10 Bargate Street
SO14 2DA

Tel: 023 8071 0007
Fax: 023 8005 1319

Two hip hop innovators present a unique visual and audio exhibition celebrating the history and positivity of the UK hip hop movement.

Foundation Rocks combines Lost and Found (Shucks One), a series of portraits, illustrations and sculpture, with Spats ‘85 (DJ Fingers), a rocking soundscape and images that make up a tribute to the founding artists of UK hip hop.

Foundation Rocks captures the original hip hop mantras of ‘peace, love, and unity; knowledge, wisdom and understanding’, presenting a challenge to the dominating themes of violence and vice which resonate throughout hip hop today. The project is the artists’ search to rediscover these foundation principles by retracing the history of UK hip hop music and the individuals making it. It is an attempt to cement the originators of UK hip hop as icons for British music fans, who are often more familiar with the originators in the US.

Lost and Found is a visual interpretation of interviews Shucks One conducted with hip hop pioneers of the 1980s, whose music influenced a whole generation of young men and women in the UK. The works address issues of history, identity and religion.

RECOGNIZE! Hip Hop and Contemporary Portraiture

Since its inception in the 1970s, hip hop has been arguably the most influential and popular musical form in America. Its popularity extends beyond the urban centers of its inception and pervades youth culture throughout the world. Images of hip hop stars are as pervasive as the music itself, and the National Portrait Gallery is featuring the work of artists who have explored this phenomenon. David Scheinbaum has been photographing hip hop artists since 2000, both in concert and offstage, including such celebrated groups as Public Enemy, Blackalicious, Phar Cyde, De La Soul and Jurassic-5. Kehinde Wiley, best known for his large, colorful paintings of anonymous young black men, has created portraits of hip hop artists such as LL Cool J and Ice T, each based on a famous European or American painting from the 17th through 19th centuries. Nikki Giovanni wrote a poem that will be transcribed onto walls in the exhibition, and also interpreted artistically by artist Shinique Smith. Two Washington, D.C./Baltimore-based graffiti artists - CON and AREK - created four portrait murals to be installed in a hallway that connects the galleries. Jefferson Pinder created three video self-portraits that will be included in the installation. Curators for the exhibition are Frank A. Goodyear III, assistant curator of photographs and Brandon B. Fortune curator of paintings; Jobyl A. Boone, a Smithsonian predoctoral fellow is the guest curator.

Press preview Feb. 5, 9:30 a.m.

A booklet that accompanies the exhibition will be available in the museum's bookstore.

Sacred Spray Paint: Natural Pigments & Medicinal Markings

Mike 360 & Desi W.O.M.E.’s Report Back from the Painting, Planting and Pulling Weeds Tour

Underneath the glamorous excitement of midnight missions and rebellious subversion of the corporate visual pollution, the life of a “graffiti" writer has substantial long-term health implications from the repeated lasting exposure to the toxic chemicals present in commercially marketed aerosol spray paint. This past summer, two prolific writers took a hard road back to the traditional indigenous ways of paintmaking and lived to tell about it.

Many writers talk about the ancient ancestral connections between the writings in caves and temples and the modern subway writing movement but few actually have any experience with the traditional methods of paintmaking and spray painting. While the spray paint industry has exploded in the last 10 years, that entire movement has focused on writers’ insatiable appetite for a wide spectrum colors and specialized tools. Industry standards are beginning to regulate the VOC emissions of paint, but none have completely eliminated them. As a result, serious writers are exposed to huge amounts of toxins, which have caused major damage to their lungs, kidneys, liver, bladders and has even been fatal.

Mike 360 observed the effects of commercial aerosol paint on a butterfly in 1996, when one died trying to taste the flowers that he was painting on a wall. Since then, he has been searching for alternative formulas for paint, including his including the traditional medicine paints of his own people. Always consulting and obtaining permission from local indigenous elders, he linked with fellow Warriors Of Mother Earth (W.O.M.E.) Desi to study natural pigments and attempt to spray them through cans pressurized with compressed air. For the past two years, 360 and Desi have spent each summer traveling to different reservations including the Northern Cheyenne, Lakota, and Hopi, to listen to both the elders and the paint itself. Iron Oxide, one of the main sources of red, was the original component for data storage and the first cassettes.

In contrast to the instant gratification of commercial spray paint, traditional paintmaking is time consuming and difficult. 360 and Desi have utilized natural pigments in major murals including 360’s 6000 sq. ft. commission in his hometown of Albuquerque with other Zuni and Hopi natives. Still the process is in development. On Sept 5, 360 and Desi will host a report-back from their latest Painting, Planting and Pulling Weeds adventure in a exhibit of pigments, refillable spray cans, murals and photos at the Mama Buzz Café, featuring live music, poetry and surprise guest performances.

WORD IS BORN: Hip-Hop In The Movies, 1979-1984

Every Thursday night in September!

This series is all about when hip-hop was still a young'un, still in short (but totally fly) pants, learnin' its ABCs of beats, an organic pulsing unit from the South Bronx which pretty much changed everything. This hip-hop is about Puma Clydes, a square of linoleum on the cracked pavement, the rattle of a can of Krylon, and two Technics squeezed together on a card table - and it's all in the movies.

All nights in this series will feature live DJ sets, including appearances by Cut Chemist, Peanut Butter Wolf, J.Rocc and Arabian Prince.

Festival sponsors include Stones Throw, Turntable Lab, and Wax Poetics.

Programmed by Gabriele Caroti.
This series is dedicated to Tony Silver (1935-2008).

The Legends of Style


"Among the multitude of writers (aerosol artists) from the 1970's & 80's, only a certain percentage understood the science of "breathing life into letters". These artists gave letters rhythm and a purpose. Not only were these legendary writers capable of producing highly stylized letters, they were also masters at adorning them with hypnotizing colors and unimaginable schemes and themes. True kings of their craft, they helped revolutionize the scene with a graphic lean! Their work assaulted the senses to the point where you can taste the colors, smell the composition and feel their artistic fury. Having them all in one exhibit is practically overwhelming and invokes high anxiety in any hardcore writer or supporter of the culture."

You've Been Wasting Your Time

Flip (Brazil), Hush (UK), Other (Canada)

1257 N. La Brea Ave. West Hollywood, CA 90038

Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art is proud to present You've Been Wasting Your Time, a group show featuring Flip, Hush, and Other, three emerging young street artists from Brazil, the UK, and Canada, respectively. Employing expansive color palettes and innovative techniques, the trio collides to contribute an eclectic range of paintings, drawings, screen prints, works on wood, and mixed media collages inspired by their diverse cultural backgrounds. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, August 16th, 2008, from 8pm – Midnight. The exhibition will be open for viewing through Sunday, September 14th, 2008.

The depth and command of the artwork of Flip, Hush, and Other both challenges and seduces the viewer. Fascinated by the portrayal of the female form in art, Hush builds up and tears down layers of paint and images as he works, "letting the canvas and marks take their own path." His stylistic fusion of the East and West is enriched by his interpretation of the inherent power play in graffiti and street art. Flip, too, draws inspiration from Asia in his new body of work. Observing the relationship between human beings and nature, he plants a tranquility of communion beneath his passionate explosion of Japanese brushstrokes. A similar dichotomy prevails in the work of Other, who both provokes and calms in pieces that were composed within rattling train carriages and buzzing coffee shops. The ideas and characters he coaxes out of hiding "come from blotches of paint and wet drips on paper...sort of like ink blots in psychology."

About The Artists


Felipe "Flip" Yung is hailed by many as one of the most talented Brazilian artists of his generation, having painted and exhibited his work throughout the streets and galleries of Brazil, Europe, and the US for over a decade. Away from the wall and canvas, he has also lent his distinctive style to the world of designer plush and vinyl toys. HUSH - UK

The work of Hush has been described as a sensory assault of shape, color, and character. With his singular blend of anime, pop-infused imagery, graffiti, and graphic design, the Englishman who worked as a graphic designer and illustrator in Hong Kong for a number of years attacks contemporary culture and established societal norms with an overwhelming proficiency and superb dry wit. OTHER - CANADA

Even though the artist himself does not always accompany it, the artwork of Canadian painter Other travels by train through North America at all hours of the day. When not at work in his studio or exploring the world, the restless Other, who possesses "a nasty habit of scribbling on things that aren't mine", wanders into deserted train yards where he renders highly-skilled etchings of mournful men and beautiful creatures onto the sides of freight trains, then stands back as his canvas awakens and disappears into the darkness.

* Silkeborg Denmark: June 14 - September 28, 2008

Opening: 14.06.08


From the 14th of June until the 28th of September 2008 the audience at The Art Centre Silkeborg Bad will be able to gain an insight into a highly interesting period in modern art. The Art Centre Silkeborg Bad has succeeded in borrowing more that 60 works of art by internationally acclaimed artists from a large German private collection. The exhibition offers a great opportunity for getting some idea of pivotal aspects of contemporary art.

In the exhibition entitled Call it what you like! COLLECTION RIK REINKING, the audience will thus, in Silkeborg, be able to experience works of art which challenge the prevailing conception of art, from mid-June and three-four months onwards. The selection of works of art for the exhibition takes as its' starting point Conceptual Art of the 1960's and -70's, Minimalism and Pop Art. All of these categories are well represented in Rik Reinking's collection.

The collector, the 32 years old Rik Reinking, has for some time now collaborated closely with employees at The Art Centre Silkeborg Bad in making the exhibition a interesting platform for the audience's encounter with the forms of expression of contemporary art. There will be made good use of the exhibition areas.

Reinking's motive for building a significant international collection is his passionate interest in contemporary art and in communicating art.

The exhibitions includes works of art by Nir Alon, Carl Andre, Hermine Anthoine, Herbert Baglione, Miroslav Balka, Banksy, John Von Bergen, Rolf Bergmeier, Guillaume Bijl, John Bock, Victor Bonato, Boxi, Daniele Buetti, Werner Büttner, Baldur Burwitz, James Lee Byars, Andre Cadere, Lawrence Carroll, Max Cole, John Mccracken, Amie Dicke, Brad Downey, Jimmie Durham, Henrik Eiben, Johannes Esper, Robert Filliou, Urs Frei, Tom Früchtl, Hamish Fulton, Gregory Green, Nan Goldin, Rodney Graham, Till F.E.Haupt, Georg Herold, Jim Hodges, Mark Jenkins, Joe Jones, Izumi Kato, Wulf Kirschner, Jon Kessler, Imi Knoebel, Gary Kuehn, Toshiya Kobayashi, Barbara Kruger, Ange Leccia, Konrad Lueg, Daniel Man, Jonathan Meese, Björn Melhus, Jonathan Monk, Piotr Nathan, Bruce Nauman, Ernesto Neto, Cady Noland, Obey, Os Gemeos, Tony Oursler, Markus Paetz, Blinky Palermo, Stefan Panhans, Dan Peterman, Pius Portmann, Stephen Prina, Richard Prince, Robert Rauschenberg, Rudolf Reiber, Mirko Reisser (DAIM), Klaus Rinke, Rolf Rose, Ulrich Rückriem, Sam Samore, Michael Schmeichel, Till Schwieker, Santiago Sierra, Roman Signer, David Simpson, Rainer Splitt, Stohead, Thorsten Tenberken, Tilt, Rosemarie Trockel, Günter Tuzina, Dimitris Tzamouranis, Meyer Vaisman, Miss Van, Ben Vautier, Ludwig Vandefelde, Vitche, Johannes Wald, Lawrence Weiner, Pablo Wendel, Stefan Wewerka, Johannes Wohnsei

Color Me Bad

An interactive coloring book exhibition for a good cause/

Montréal’s Under Pressure international graffiti festival and Galerie d’art Yves Laroche - come together for a new interactive exhibition: Color Me Bad. Over the past 13 years, Under Pressure has invited over 30 artists to produce original artwork for the covers of their magazine and their annual event limited edition t-shirts. Now, these images will be transferred and stretched onto canvas stripped down to a basic outline: like a coloring book. Proceeds from the event will be going towards the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Color Me Bad invites artists and guests, including children and adults, to draw on the canvases using crayons. Being silently auctioned off throughout the evening, proceeds raised from the canvases and catalogues will be donated to the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Also exhibiting will be a Wall of Fame portrait series of emerging and established graffiti artists by Danny Portieous, taken at last year’s Under Pressure festival.

In conjunction with Giant Robot, Scion presents Insiders, Outsiders & The Middle at its 4,500 square foot Installation L.A. Gallery. At Giant Robot, the definition of art ranges from straight contemporary painting to sculpted figures (which were considered action figures just a few years ago). This exhibition celebrates not the disparate mediums, but the divergent mindsets of artists--as well as the gray areas.

Insiders are artists who work so hard in front of their computers that they don't leave their chairs long enough to hang their pieces on walls. More often, their art is found onscreen, in print, and on T-shirts. Adrian Johnson is an example from the U.K., with a retro drawing style inspired by children's books. The other Insiders are from Japan. Noriko Ashino runs the A Piece of Design firm, and specializes in a variety of disciplines including character design and graphics. Sometimes known as ZariganiWorks, the duo of Taro Mukasa and Yoshitane Sakamoto are responsible for the infamous Suicide Bomb Button, have created the Kore Janai Robo (which has gone from handmade wood figurines to vinyl characters with a TV show), and freelance design toys, characters, and products.

Outsiders include Space Invader, a street artist from Paris who makes his mark on walls around the world and calls each tiled piece an "invasion." He painstakingly documents each one before it gets ripped down—either by city workers or collectors—and publishes his work in books and maps. Kami is revered as a graffiti legend in Tokyo and has successfully transitioned from the streets to art galleries. His pieces often resemble flowing water.

And then there's The Middle. The original work of Kyoto-based Shinya Yamamoto has been found in many exhibitions as well as the drum set of Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley. Part Basquiat and part left-brain madness, his style is free flowing and dreamy. Nao Harada, proprietor of the Wrecks clothing line, sketches, draws, and paints with no regard to the meaning of art. He rides around on his BMX leaving stickers and tags around Tokyo. The lone American in the group, Ed Trask, is from Virginia. He tours constantly as the drummer for the veteran punk band Avail. Through painting, he recalls and reinterprets the slices of Americana that he sees on the road. Although there is no obvious correlation between the artists, they form a powerful cross-section of creative forces that are physically active with their art. They belie the image of the stationary artist and pose the question of how they will co-exist in a restrained gallery setting.

Opening reception August 2, 7:00 P.M. -10:00 P.M.
Scion Installation L.A. Gallery
3521 Helms Ave. (at National)

New Paintings, Drawings, Sculpture and Limited Edition Giclées by Miss Van and Victor Castillo


Merry Karnowsky Gallery Berlin is proud to present CANTO NEGRO Y BRUJERIAS, featuring the paintings of Barcelona-based artists Miss Van (France) and Victor Castillo (Chile). The two unfold their unique but harmonious iconographies in a pictorial exercise of intersecting ideas. These artists approach from their personal perspectives subjects like seduction, desire, enchantment, and the game of infantile cruelty. The title of the exhibition attempts to unite these proposals and at the same time, alludes to Spanish culture, superstition and witchcraft as basic context, and dark invocations of common ghosts.

The "poupees" of Miss Van, always surrounded in sensational atmospheres, embody the surrounding energies of the loving spell that they seduce and catch. All are portrayed in mystical scenarios, between meditation and liberation of evil, introspection and exorcism. Through their closed eyes, we enter into the private worlds of each, reflecting on their dark side and feminine fragility. Miss Van's work has shown in the United States, France, England, Austria, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany and Australia.

Victor Castillo shows us a mixture of classic and comic painting loaded with infantile personages of subjects: macabre, joy, seduction and the unscrupulous pleasures of the destruction game. At the same time he also makes references to contemporary realities and a new generation's stimulations from the increasing bombardment by the media. Castillo's work has shown in Spain, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, the United States, Canada, Belgium and Taiwan.

"Pneumonia, Isolation, and Disorder"

New work by Deuce 7

Artist Reception July 11 6p - 10p

BLVD Gallery
2316 2nd Ave.
Seattle, Wa 98121
t. 206.448.8767

BLVD Gallery proudly presents "Pneumonia, Isolation, and Disorder" a show of new works by Deuce 7. Deuce 7 is a graffiti artist from Minneapolis who is also part of a burgeoning underground subculture of Freight train hoppers. He travels across the country riding the rails, painting his work on trains, in tunnels, squats, and wherever he can do his thing. Deuce 7's approach to graffiti comes not from a cultural identity like hip hop but from his love of the Railroad and it's history. He grew up train spotting, living in front of a huge railyard, and after noticing the colorful graffiti on the rail cars he decided that this would be a way for him to contribute to rail culture. Deuce 7's work shares the flavor of the "Hobo" Glyphs that rail workers have marked freight cars with for over a century while propelling the look into the 21st century with his studied handstyles and vibrant color schemes. In 2007 Deuce7 made a trip to NYC to do graffiti and experience the Mecca of Street Art. After 2 short weeks he had taken the city by storm and was profiled in the Village Voice with the tagline "Is a guy from Minnesota the new king of New York street art?", A very impressive achievement for a previously unknown graffiti artist from the midwest in a city renowned for it's dislike of intruding outsiders. This will be his first solo show of drawings and paintings on the West Coast.

Art Installation by Chicago artist Erik DeBat aka RISK

Piccolo, 859 N. Damen at Iowa in Ukrainian Village

Saturday, March 8th, 2008 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. - Summer 2008

Chicago--Enjoy a night of neighborhood art, refreshments and Italian fare at Piccolo, 859 N. Damen at Iowa in Chicago's Ukrainian Village. Artist Erik DeBat aka RISK will unveil a recent large-scale urban painting installation accompanied by some of his minimalist aerosol can sculptures.

RISK, the Chicago painter and designer began his career on Chicago's rapid transit lines in the early 1980s, joining in the then underground sub-culture of graffiti art and hip-hop. RISK was among the first wave of talented Chicago urban artists to make their transition from the streets and begin to exhibit and sell their paintings in galleries.

Throughout the late 80s RISK began seriously working on commissions for interior designers and private collectors. He met and painted with the late pop artist Keith Haring in 1989, while working on a mural project in conjunction with Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Cultural Center's then budding arts program Gallery 37.

In the 90s, RISK attended School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he studied graphic design, collage, photography and painting. Manufactured two street ware lines which he and partners exported to Japan and sold throughout the U.S., RISK continues to make his art, work on private commissions, and produce limited edition designs from his studio in Chicago's North Lakeview.

Guest DJs will be spinning assortment of low-key rhythms, appetizers and refreshments will be served throughout the evening. For more info on Piccolo call 773-772-3355 or go to For more info on artist Erik DeBat aka RISK contact him at or go to

Sea No Evil

Art benefit to preserve and protect the oceans of the world

On Saturday July, 12th 2008 the Sea No Evil Art Benefit will take place at the Riverside Art Museum located in the historic Downtown District of Riverside, California . To Die For is once again proud to work with Monster Media and give something back to the beautiful creatures of our ocean . This Art benefit is to raise money and awareness for Captain Paul Watson Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, a non-profit organization that is passionately dedicated to preserving the health of the worlds ocean and saving endangered mammals that are needlessly and mercilessly hunted and brutally slaughtered for nefarious purposes.

All of the staff at To Die For feel very passionately about this cause and the importance to help create public awareness . After the success we had with last years event featuring artists such as Shepherd Fairy form OBEY and our very own DEPH from To Die For we have kept the momentum going and have brought together what we think are some of the best tattooists in the world to donate artwork. On top of this, RVCA have also donated their time and art with some amazing pieces . All of the the donated art will be available for purchase through silent auction bidding on Saturday 12th July 2008.

Everything about this benefit is amazing, says To Die For co-owner Jason Welsher. To see this many people come together for such a special cause is inspiring and the support we've had from the To Die For artists donating their art and time is something we are truly grateful for.

Captain Paul Watson , Founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, will speak about the importance of his life's work. Renowned artist Shepherd Fairey will DJ in the art gallery and acclaimed singer songwriter Matt Costa will Perform on the roof of the museum. Free drinks will be provided to guests compliments of Sambazon, VeeV, and Imperial.

By supporting an event like this you'll walk away knowing you have done something positive and helped an amazing cause. With your help we can make a difference . We look forward to seeing you all on July 12th .

Sea No Evil came about when Riverside residents Derric and Erin Swinfard decided to take up a cause and use their networking for the good of the world’s oceans. They rounded up friends, artists, and business owners to create an art benefit that raised more than $30,000.

GRAPHOPOLI: World's 1st Urban Art Biennale

The Puerto Rico Museum of Art (MAPR) announced last May the selection of the artists for its upcoming project, Graphopoli, the World's 1st Urban Art Biennale, which will take place in Puerto Rico this summer from July 7th to the 20th. This innovative cultural program curated by Celina Nogueras Cuevas, will impact many of the main cities of Puerto Rico's including San Juan, Ponce, Caguas and Mayaguez which supported the event as host municipalities, assigning outdoor spots where simultaneous interventions will take place by urban artists.

With an open call for entries, the MAPR and the selection committee have drawn the best urban artists to participate in a contest where they will paint giant-scale structures. The jury composed by international figures like infamous Miss 17 from NY and artist/editor of Swindle Magazine, Sonik (Boston) and local professionals selected from over 40 submissions. The selection is composed by two categories which include Solo and Crew.. The first include artists such as: Bik-ismo, Sofía, Justsez, Larregui, Pun18 and Nepo; and the second composed by ADM, Corografico and OS. The artists would have an exceptional opportunity to intervene large scale uncommon places such as a water pump, a student residence building, sport center roof, a lighthouse viewpoint and a water tank, among others.

"This is an unprecedented event that will transform Puerto Rico into a World Capital of Urban Art", stated Celina Nogueras Cuevas, curator and coordinator of the project. Since the 90Zs, Puerto Rico has captivated the attention of Urban Artists from around the world. Many international personalities such as, Brasilian artist Os Gemeos, and American artists Shepard Fairey and Swoon, had come to the island to spread their art, exhibiting their unique urban style and techniques in alternative spaces.. "These important pieces have become part of the Urban Art Movement legacy, enriching our artistic patrimony created by Puerto Rican artist like Lee Quiñones, Dzine and many emergent figures that are defining the new generation of urban artists."

Graphopoli, the 1st urban art Biennale of Puerto Rico and the world is a project developed by the MAPR with the collaboration of UBS Financial Services of Puerto Rico and CEO Miguel Antonio Ferrer. In addition of the hosting municipalities, Graphopoli count with the support of brands like Glidden, Snickers, Montana Colors, Lo Nitido, and the program "Vive Cultura!" in the Mayor City.

"Hairy Metal Vengence"

new works by Bigfoot

June 13 - July 5, 2008
Reception June 13 6p - 10p

BLVD Gallery is proud to present the work of Oakland based artist Bigfoot. Bigfoot is a Bay area Graffiti legend and has been a major influence in the skateboard industry for close to a decade. Originally from New Jersey ,young Bigfoot fled to California to be closer to big trees . Disassociated from art school and human society, in 1994 he started writing "Bigfoot" in the streets of San Francisco with relentless fury .Working often with house paint and wooden panels ,his work depicts the conflict between the respect for nature held by the artist's cast of Bigfoot characters and the destructive agenda of mankind. Despite his reclusive nature, Bigfoot has managed to stay active in society ,designing skateboard graphics and footwear ,showing in galleries in America and Japan,and the release of his vinyl figure with Strangeco in 2004. His eponymous character and his love of heavy metal play a major role in his studio work as well as his highly recognized street art. Please join us at his opening reception Friday June 13 to Meet the artist and Ride the Lightning.

Kosmopolite, Festival International d’art mural & de graffiti

Le festival international de graffiti de Bagnolet, trouve son fil artistique grâce à deux collectifs locaux de graffeurs, MAC et Douze12, rassemblés dans une association, Kosmopolite. Aujourd’hui soutenu par la ville de Bagnolet, cet événement fait figure d’apprentissage mutuel, ouvert sur la ville.

Particulièrement représentée dans les villes d’Athènes et de Thessalonique, la scène picturale hellénique est sans aucun doute la plus décalée d’Europe. Artistes français et internationaux, expositions, films, performances, concerts, spectacles… rendront tour à tour hommage à la culture du graffiti.

Expo M.A.C.


Exposition M.A.C. Crew
Mercredi 18 juin au 13 juillet 2008 à la Médiathèque de Bagnolet (Vernissage le Mercredi 18 juin à 19h avec signature du livre Stencil History X)

Pour cette 7ème édition de kosmopolite, le collectif de peintre M.A.C. rend hommage à l’esprit de mai 68, et plus particulièrement à un autre collectif d’artistes Bagnoletais, la Coopérative des Malassis.

À l’heure où le Président de la république remet en cause les acquis de mai 68 et le vent de liberté qui l’accompagne, le collectif M.A.C. remet en avant des idéaux et une critique sociale pertinente. À travers fresques, toiles, graffitis et pochoirs, l’exposition met en avant cette approche collective et la diversité picturale de ses auteurs.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Graffiti Liquidation Sale!

The United States of America is going out of business! But here at the U.S. Department of Homeland Graffiti, we want to turn this moment of national embarrassment and hard times into real savings for you and your family. From June 4th through the 28th, the U.S.D.H.G and the Graffiti Research Lab are liquidating all confiscated, high-tech graffiti artifacts and tools, expunged evidence, court exhibits, anti-graffiti technology and office furnishings, priced to sell. So grab a handful of Euros or Mao Bucks and head on down to Anno Domini located between U.S. Routes 101 and 280 in Silicon Valley, California. Don't miss out on these sub-prime deals,because just like our empire, bargains of this nature won't last forever!

The Graffiti Research Lab is dedicated to outfitting graffiti writers, artists, pranksters and protesters with open source tools for urban communication. The goal of the G.R.L. is to technologically empower individuals to creatively alter their surroundings on the scale of advertisers, corporations and the state in order to reclaim public space from both authoritarian and consumer culture. GRL Weapons of Mass Defacement (WMDs) are the result of numerous grants, awards and commissions from rogue governments, educational institutes and arts organizations. They have shown their work on five continents and will be featured in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Tate Modern in London and the National Art Museum of China in Beijing in 2008. Their first documentary video, "GRL: The Complete First Season", recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. They have been featured in or contributed to publications, books and other mass media, like the New York Times, Time Magazine, Time Asia, The Taipei Times, Excelsior, Time Out New York, the Village Voice, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Wired, Il Corriere Della Sera, NBC, ABC, CNN,, and on the front page of Youtube. But more importantly, thousands of ubiquitous, clandestine agents have been trained, via the web, to use GRL tools and techniques to create their own public interventions all over the world. Graffiti Research Lab splinter cells have formed in Amsterdam, Vienna, Barcelona, Toronto, Tijuana, Hong Kong, Taipei, Minneapolis and Australia and the GRL NYC is honored to be New York's elected representative to the U.S. Department of Homeland Graffiti.

DELTA is renowned for his complex three dimensional styles and visually spectacular, architecturally structured lettering.

Elms Lester Painting Rooms are pleased to present a much awaited exhibition of DELTA' s latest work: a showcase of the Dutch master's graphic and architecturally inspired works, including new paintings, 3D constructivist pieces and complex collages.

Boris Tellegen, aka DELTA, is an internationally acclaimed contemporary artist from Amsterdam who skilfully experiments with a variety of mediums in order to create his amazingly intricate paintings, prints, 3D sculptures, video works and installations. His work reminds the old Utopists and Constructivists and can be seen as portraits of industrial architecture.

The first DELTA tag appeared on the streets in 1984: through the years this Netherlands based artist has developed a complex and unique style that resembles isometric plans and plays with ideas of architecture and high tech futuristic vehicles.DELTA introduces an alien and idiosyncratic aesthetic into graffiti art that escapes the common logo-like word IDs. He has influenced writers all over the world for decades with his 3D letter style.

Boris Tellegen was born in 1968.

He became one of the pioneers of the European graffiti movement, in 1984, when he made his tag DELTA for the first time.

His work shows the hallmark of his time at the Faculty of Industrial Design at the Technical University Delft, from where he graduated with a degree in Industrial Design Engineering in 1994.

Delta's fine art paintings and sculptures have recently been exhibitied in Singapore / Malaysia, London and Italy. He has also produced work for musicians such as Linkin Park, Dj Vadim (Ninja Tune), Rima project on Jazzanova Compost Records, Dub Records and Alex Cortez.

DELTA has exhibited with Elms Lesters Painting Rooms since 2003 and this will be his first solo show in UK.

Artist Statement by Rich "BAMA" Admiral

From my beginnings as a graffiti artist in the early 70's, I've been on a quest to find my true inner voice; to try and get beyond the label of just being a "street artist". Yes I am the second person to sell a painting as a graffiti artist, (Razor Gallery - 1973). This boxed me into the graffiti art movement, but I was always searching for a more unique take on aerosol art. I never turned my back on my graffiti past, but I always wanted to do more than paint my name or please the gallery heads. To express myself from my heart and mind (I am so I paint). It is what I live for. I love to paint, I need to paint and I love to be different. With luck people will like the Bama I've become.

Gallery Statement by Eto Oro, Director es ORO Polymedia

Rich "BAMA" Admiral is a Bronx based contemporary expressionist painter and graffiti pioneer. He began "writing" in the New York subway system in the early 1970's. He then moved on to showing his work in the gallery system. Since then his work has been exhibited around the United States, Switzerland and Holland. In his self-titled solo installation Bama presents a small series of tonal paintings that resemble softened abstractions of Swiss surrealist H. R. Giger's work. Bama's show will also include a video installation and live DJ set by the artist.

Sofia Maldonado

The Tropical Storm


Opening reception: Thursday, May 15th, 6-8pm

Magnan Emrich Contemporary is pleased to announce the debut solo show of Puerto Rican artist Sofia Maldonado. The exhibition presents video, paintings, and a large sculpture installation. The exhibition will be on view from May 15th - June 23st, 2008.

The Tropical Storm is a three-part project blending elements of street culture like skateboarding, punk rock and graffiti with a feminine Latina aesthetic and the chaotic natural energy of the Caribbean. The different elements of the project -The Bowl, Broken Boards and The Skate Bags - originate from the artist's objective to open a dialogue on the renovation of neglected public spaces and how fashion and consumerism influence counterculture youth movements (particularly how these movements are integrated into products and industries).

A skate mini-ramp will be installed in the center of the gallery designed and painted by the artist and will be available for local urban daredevils to attempt during the opening (thanks to the help of

Sofia Maldonado was born in Puerto Rico in 1984. She received her BFA from Escuela de Artes Plasticas in San Juan and will complete her MFA in Painting from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY this spring. She has taught various workshops on murals, as well as exhibited in Europe, New York, and Puerto Rico. Her collaborations with the exit collective were recently included in the "S" Files" Biennial at El Museo del Barrio in New York, NY. She lives and works in Brooklyn.

White Walls Presents:

Kelsey Brookes and AJ Fosik

Opening Reception Saturday May 10th 2008 Runs Through June 7th 2008

White Walls Gallery 835 Larkin Street SF CA 94109 415.931.1500

Kelsey Brookes is a former biochemist who attributes his raw style

to an educational system that refuses to teach scientists how to draw. With this his paintings explode with a figurative nature that is influenced by Hindu an Buddhist deities, exotic animals and sex as well as rustic American quilts.

Each Figure is adorned with ghostly representations of the natural world... animals and plants that unfold from the body into the surrounding canvas. His chimeras are frozen with animalistic intensity in explosive and sometimes tortured positions.

AJ Fosik's eclectic handmade and intricately designed wood animal sculptures and paintings, combined with cryptic symbols, intrigue and provoke. Fosik creates an experience that at first glance evokes a questioning of familiar concepts and then pushes the viewer to look and think deeper. Inspired by subversive cultural influences which shift complacency, he creates pieces that suspend comfort while at the same time offer recognizable symbols and images. In this dynamic tension the art and the viewer hopefully come together in an expanded definition of culture and assumption.

Grafiteiras pela Lei Maria da Penha

é um projeto promovido pela COMCAUSA que vai formar Promotoras Populares da Lei Maria da Penha através do graffiti entre as mulheres. As ações da COMCAUSA na Baixada Fluminense para a aplicação, por parte do Estado, da Lei Maria da Penha atuam na difusão da Lei e seus mecanismos para que as mulheres possam exercê-la. Os projetos culturais sempre incentivaram a produção artística e intelectual feminina na cultura Hip Hop. Assim surgiu o projeto “Grafiteiras pela Lei Maria da Penha” para criar uma nova forma de debater a questão da violência contra a mulher através do contato de jovens mulheres das comunidades com a arte pública do graffiti.

O Lançamento do projeto nos municípios de atuação será nos dias 08 de Março – São João de Meriti – e 09 de Março – Nova Iguaçu. Celebrando o Dia Internacional das Mulheres – 08 de março, o SESC São João de Meriti recebe a capacitação de cerca de quinze grafiteiras e a abertura da exposição de suas obras “Minas do Graffiti”. No domingo, dia 09 de Março, o Lançamento promove o 2° Encontro de Grafiteiras do Rio de Janeiro, com graffiti do muro da Praça dos Direitos Humanos e apresentação do COMCAUSA Sound System, projeto comandado pelos rappers Dom Negrone e Vinícius Terra que convidam as rappers Sista Wolff, JC e Ultimato á Salvação e o DJ Boneco.

Oficinas de Graffiti e Formação de Promotoras em Comunidades
Após a capacitação, entre os meses de março a maio, as grafiteiras irão percorrer quatro comunidades da Baixada Fluminense (Nova Iguaçu – Rosa dos Ventos, Carmary e Bairro Grajaú - e São João de Meriti - Vila Rosali), divulgando a Lei que beneficia vítimas de violência doméstica através de oficinas de graffiti e da pintura de muros dentro dos bairros.

Academics - Art, Music & Fashion

ac·a·dem·ics -learned or scholarly but lacking in worldliness, common sense, or practicality. That is a great way to explain the art world of yesteryear. Yet in this time and age there seems to be many pseudonyms for contemporary art and urban mediums. When an artist starts in a street or public setting and then brings that medium inside we aim to label it "Street Art." As to avoid labeling it what it is, Graffiti. Friday May 30th we welcome back an Arizona local who was notorious in the street scene merely 12 months ago. Pandas are the driving force that the viewer draws familiarity to witnessing in his work. This weekend that friendly smile and tenacity for "getting over" come to Brand X Clothing. This show is packed with multi mediums that thread together the exhibit like a tapestry of tastes throughout a visual stimulus for the observers taking. The art displayed is ranging from Wheat paste to silk screen & water colors. When fusing street art into the gallery format you often risk losing the look and feel that appeal to the work. Yet with this exhibit Disposable Hero brings a group of heavy hitters to support. Additional art featured: Local legend Mad One, HMPH, DOVE & FVS. There work combined can be seen on many street corners, back alleys and street stop signs covering the Arizona landscape.

Come join us for an evening of Art, Music & Fashion.

Electric Windows

On the weekend of May 16th, twenty artists of large-scale ephemeral work, will descend upon Beacon, NY, and help transform an old, electric blanket factory into an art destination. The now boarded-up windows of One East Main Street will turn the concept of a gallery inside-out--displaying eight foot by twelve foot work by artists with all different backgrounds, from Beacon's own Rick Price to world-renowned Pop, Street and graffiti artists, such as Ron English and Lady Pink.

This painting and installation will be open to the public with most of the artists painting live right in front of the building. Coinciding with Dia Beacon's fifth anniversary, this promises to be an exciting weekend.

Death Head

Growing up in Mexico, Death Head was greatly inspired by the annual holiday known as "Day of the Dead". Taking this century old tradition of celebrating life and death, and embracing it with a Punk Rock lifestyle and "fuck you" attitude, Death Head emerged as a cultural hybrid…forging the colors, sounds, spirituality, political and economical traits of these genera's. Interpreting life through the brutal, animalistic, primal side of humanity, Death Head began abstracting human faces (including his own) into a diversity of animal skulls, creating the inner man we all try to hide or deny. Death Head views himself as a shaman of sorts, as the doorman for the truth seekers looking for the occult, the macabre and spiritual awakening. His work brings the viewer closer to nature and helps bridge the gap between life, death, and the universe as a whole.

Aerosol Warfare is proud to showcase Death Head in his 1st solo exhibition. Come out and experience a full interactive installation in Houston's premier gallery space.

Opening Reception for the artist: May 9th, 2008, 6pm to 11pm.

Opening Reception: Friday, May 2nd, 7pm - 10pm

The Threat of Chance art exposition is based on the temptation of possibility. The possibility of change in the face of stagnation, the possibility of hope in desperate times, the possibility of alternative thought and lifestyle in the doldrums of complacency.

For this installation a railroad shanty town will be recreated to further emphasis the struggle between hope and despair. Amidst a gallery filled of shacks made with found material and walls decorated with freight trains and decaying industry you will find photographs by boxcar culture enthusiast the Polaroid Kidd. Proletarian signs, flags, prints, and banners from author/activist Josh MacPhee. Interactive sculptures, drawings, paintings and stencils, from graffiti artist Billy Mode, and the sociological display of hand cut stencils by Chris Stain. The Threat of Chance art exposition is pure socialist propaganda , (at least that's how the mainstream will see it) , so stop by opening night and they'll tear you a new asshole.

Greg Lamarche

Things I Picked up Along the Way

Opening reception: Saturday, April 19, 7 - 10pm

White Walls Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition in San Francisco by New York collage artist Greg Lamarche.

This exhibition celebrates 27 years of writing graffiti and making collages with the new series 27 Tags. The deceptively simple collages from old and discarded papers form an autobiographical survey of hand-style. The series illustrates the progression from past to present and how graffiti, text, letters and hand-style are the basis of all his work.

In the site-specific installation Things I Picked up Along the Way, uncut papers and other found materials are tacked to the walls of the gallery making a larger than life size collage. The accumulation of material is central to his artistic process and each element has particular significance and meaning. The installation also reveals the sources and inspirations which result in the surrounding collages.

Born and raised in New York City, Greg Lamarche has been collecting crap and making collages since the sixth grade when he used spent fire works, rolling papers and empty bags of angel dust he gathered from the local schoolyards as material. He began writing graffiti in 1981 (SP one) and published Skills magazine during the early 90s. He has worked both as a designer and artist since 2000.

Recent commercial clients include Nike, Roxy/Quiksilver, VH1, Prestel and Six Pack. He is profiled in the June issue of Print magazine. This spring and summer his work will be featured in the Happening a traveling multimedia exhibition and festival in Hong Kong, Sydney, London and Paris.

BLVD Gallery is proud to present new works from NYC Graffiti Legend GHOST a/k/a Cousin Frank, a pioneering influence for many graffiti artists around the world. Having started writing in the golden age of the late 1970's, Ghost has first hand knowledge of the many adventures and accomplishments of the NYC subway graffiti movement. The original style, vibrant color combinations, and strong sense of satire of his graffiti has managed to ease the transition naturally to his more gallery oriented pursuits.

Ghost has spent many years dedicated to the formation ( or deformation ) of the standard English alphabet creating limitless possibilities for him to subvert the language in his unique style. He has managed to create work that bears the unmistakable mark of an accomplished draughtsman without it being either overbearing or overwrought. The humor that permeates Ghosts' work comes from the underground comics tradition from his youth, more Zapp! Comix than Marvel. Ghosts' improvisational approach to graffiti, he never planned ahead what his work would be like, gives his current series of paintings a lightness and spontaneity that has the feeling of an inside joke between old friends.

Ghost has shown his work in galleries across the globe and has become a major part of the visual aesthetic of companies like respected streetwear brand Stussy. There is also a documentary in production chronicling the many contributions Ghost has made to the global graffiti movement. This show will be the second time that BLVD Gallery has been privileged to work with Ghost whose amazing mural in the "Claimin' Space" exhibition was a highlight for many at the 2007 Bumbershoot arts festival.

LUCY McLAUCHLAN 'Restricted Freedom' & SLICK 'Ceci n'est pas Graffiti'

FIFTY24SF Gallery is pleased to announce the opening solo exhibition of UK-based artist, Lucy McLauchlan as well as Ceci n'est pas Graffiti, a solo exhibition of new graffiti-related work by Los Angeles-based artist, Slick. This will be the first solo show of Lucy's work in the US in which she will present a collection of new paintings incorporated into a site-specific installation that will literally transform the gallery. Working in a style that combines illustrative linework, bitonal colors, figurative subject matter, and primal stylings, Lucy's work is both graphic and subtle at the same time. Expressive faces with delicate expressions inked in black blend together amidst abstract deisgn elements that sweep across the page giving her work a sense of movement and flow.

Slick will present large-scale acrylic, marker, and spray paint works on canvas as well as sculpture and a series of smaller, panel pieces. For the subject of this series, Slick uses the train - an urban canvas foreign to him as a youth growing up in Hawaii. Through this series, Slick is able to explore an era of train painting while paying homage to the East Coast graff writers who transformed it into a phenomenon. When known for his graffiti, Slick worked in a highly rendered, 3-dimensional style. For Ceci n'est pas Graffiti, he works in a more gestural style, taking it back to the essence of graff where simpler strokes enabled the artist to work under time constraints.

Lucy McLauchlan was born in Birmingham, UK and has shown extensively with international shows at such illustrious galleries as BLK/MRKT Gallery, the Eclectic Gallery in Tokyo, the Wolverhampton Art Gallery, the prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and a recent solo show at Lazarides Gallery. Lucy has been featured in numerous publications, but amongst them are I-D, Vogue, Relax and Lodown magazines. Lucy is also one of the founding members of Beat13, an artist collective that began in Birmingham in 1999 and whose collaborators list includes the animated pop band Gorillaz, Banksy's Pictures on Walls, Keep A Breast Charity and the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.

Slick was raised in Hawaii and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18. He attended Otis Parsons, and later received training at the Art Center College of Design. It was at Otis Parsons where he met his crew K2S (Kill to Succeed). Slick has founded prominent streetwear companies such as Third Rail Clothing™, Fuct™, Shaolin Worldwide™, Dissizit™, and the toy division STD™. He has worked on special projects with corporations such as Levi's and Nike, and with recording artists, The Pharcyde and Booyaa Tribe. Slick's utilization of computer graphics, painting techniques, and aerosol techniques has presented a style uniquely, and respectively his own.

Anthony Lister

Anthony Lister is a well-known painter and installation artist. His work shows influence from a number of genre's including street art, expressionism, and pop art from Francis Bacon to Futura 2000. His work often illustrates the marginal aspects of life we'd rather not linger on - people down on their luck, convicted criminals, the drudgery of the daily grind and occasionally drawing from television and such themes as "misguided role models" that result from it. The message is illuminated further in an homage to the late Heath Ledger depicted as the Joker addressing the less glamorous aspects of society and popular culture making it all too real. His most recent works emphasize vagrant superheros exploiting the trite nature of the everyday while exposing its place in the hairy underbelly of society.

Lister hails from Brisbane, Australia. He's shown throughout Australia and has held solo shows in NYC and London. He's prolific on the street and on gallery walls and has won many art awards. Lister's work has been collected by National Gallery of Australia, David Roberts Collection , TVS Partnership, Brand and Slater Architects, and BHP Collection.

Ad Hoc Art is thrilled to be hosting and supporting a special silent auction benefit Free Arts NYC and to celebrate the launch of Brooklyn Street Art, a new book of photographs by Jaime Rojo, designed by Steven P. Harrington, and published by Prestel.

Ad Hoc Art is generously donating their gallery space for the celebration and silent auction of approximately 25 works by well-known, emerging, and yet to be discovered artists who know no boundaries and follow no rules--their artistic turf is the public gallery of the Brooklyn streets. The artists, whose work animates the pages of this new full-color book, are donating their original or editioned works to be bid up and auctioned off, with all proceeds from the winning sales going directly to benefit Free Arts NYC's creative arts and mentoring programs for at-risk children and families in New York.

Some of the artists whose work will be available for sale include Armsrock, DAIN, Elbowtoe, Gaia, Judith Supine, MOMO, Skewville, Swoon, WK Interact, among MANY more amazing artists! Some of the artists have participated in Free Arts NYC's programs previous to this event and are creating original work to donate to this benefit event to generate significant support for Free Arts NYC.

The auction will be the only silent portion of the celebratory evening. DJ Flub will be enthralling the crowd with his razor wit and rocking decks as the benefit guests enjoy both the Ad Hoc Art gallery and the Ad Hoc Art studio, opened to the general public for the first time to highlight the screen-printing facilities and educational programs that instructors from Peripheral Media Projects call home, as well as many local and international artists.

Brooklyn Street Art Silent Benefit Auction Friday, April 25th, 2008, 7-10 pm (last bids at 9:30 pm) Press preview from 6-7 pm

Ad Hoc Art proudly presents...

"Brick Ladies of NYC"


Exhibition dates: March 21 - April 20, 2008

Closing Reception: Sunday April 20th, 6pm - talk with the artists, and SprayMasters screening

Lady Pink & AIKO will be in the gallery to talk about their artwork and the experience of working together on this incredible exhibition. This is also the last chance to see their work as this is the last day of the exhibition. Please stop by early as space will be limited. We will be open from 1pm-8pm. The talk will begin around 6pm.

Immediately following the lecture, Ad Hoc Art is pleased to present SprayMasters, the new graffiti film by Manny Kirchheimer, starring Lady Pink, Lee Quinones, Futura 2000, and Zephyr. The movie, which features revealing new interviews and rare subway art from 1977, sold out its premiere screenings at the Museum of Modern Art in February.

Lady Pink was born in Ecuador, but raised in NYC. In 1979 she started writing graffiti and soon was well known as the only female capable of competing with the boys in the graffiti subculture. Pink painted subway trains from the years 1979-1985. She is considered a cult figure in the hip-hop subculture since the release of the motion picture "Wild Style" in 1982, in which she had a starring role. While still in high school she was already exhibiting paintings in art galleries, and at the age of 21 had her first solo show at the Moore College of Art. As a leading participant in the rise of graffiti-based art, Lady Pink's canvases have entered important art collections such as those of the Whitney Museum, the MET in New York City, the Brooklyn Museum and the Groningen Museum of Holland. She has established herself in the fine arts world, and her paintings are highly prized by collectors. Lady Pink continues to mature as an artist, producing ambitious murals commissioned for businesses and creating new paintings on canvas that express her unique personal vision. Lady Pink recently starred in a documentary film (along with Lee Quinones, Zephyr & Futura 2000) entitled Spraymasters, which recently had it's world premiere at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in Manhattan. She will also will be taking part in an exhibition at the Bronx Museum almost simultaneously with her show here at Ad Hoc Art in Brooklyn and has a vinyl figure coming out through Kid Robot in May of 2008.

Aiko was born in Tokyo and currently resides in NYC. Since powerfully breaking out on the fine art scene she has exhibited in such galleries as Merry Karnowsky (Los Angeles), Lineage Gallery (Philadelphia), New Image Art Gallery (Los Angeles), Iguapop Gallery (Spain), Revelations (Tokyo),and Leonard Street Gallery (London). Being an immigrant from Japan, Aiko has herself been discovering Americana-type pop imagery and then re-creating it in new and innovative ways. Aiko's work walks that thin, fragile tightrope between acceptance and disdain, beauty and danger, unconsciously mirroring the day to day life of your average Brooklyn resident. Aiko has a vinyl figure coming out through Kid Robot and has a feature article being published in Juxtapoz magazine almost simultaneously with her show here at Ad Hoc Art in Brooklyn. She has also been selected to be on a panel at the Brooklyn Museum in conjunction with the upcoming © MURAKAMI exhibition.

Nothing but the Breaks

Steady Baltimore Presents a group show featuring 70s era themed works on canvas by emerging Baltimore, Philadelphia, Boston and Virginia graffiti and street artists:

Jazirock, Blister, Under Water Pirates, Ride, Kepoh, Bob, El Toro, Benny Sars, 5003, Ners Boogie, Adam Neubauer

In the '70s, art and music exclusive to the streets and YMCA's of the Bronx personified an inner city environment that begged for an escape from crime and poverty. While POSE 2 designed the fliers and Afrika Bambaataa controlled the crowd with the ones and twos, people from all over NYC for one night forgot about gangs, poverty and politics.

Should it be a surprise that with those same hip-hop founding conditions existing in Baltimore today, that it too is seeking an outlet? Steady Baltimore and DIG's "Nothing But the Breaks" has become that outlet for an emerging sub-culture of street and graffiti artists and lovers of funk and soul music.

Politics, poverty and crime aside, Nothing But The Breaks is Baltimore's answer to its vices and ills.

Amongst artists born in a certain period of time there is an affinity for the animated iconography of the 1980's. In April Meltdown Gallery presents GAG ME WITH A TOON, a new works exhibition that will showcase the work of more than twenty creative souls who have been tainted with the neon fruit stripe of Morning in America. Utilizing everything from the saccharine funk of Strawberry Shortcake to the disciplined fashion fervor of the Baroness of Cobra these artists will explore the sketchy in-betweens of animated femininity. In the gallery we shall weigh the sins of Scrappy-Doo and balance them against the irreligious inclusion of Godzuki, Baby Plas and 7-Zark-7. A measure will be made of thunderous barbarians and thunderous cats and of friends both super and amazing. Be ye short and blue or bionic, a real he-man or just your average joe, you will find yourself transformed after having stood amongst the time-displaced art of these stellar talents.

An installation by Timid

Nancy Victor Gallery is proud to present The first ever solo exhibition by installation artist and photographer - Timid. Timid's credentials within the graffiti movement are qualified by his close friendships and collaborations with artists like Joker, Remi/Rough and Stormie. His first solo outing into the gallery world will be an unforgettable and out there event, not to be missed!

Gravity - The natural force of attraction exerted by a celestial body, such as Earth, upon objects at or near its surface, tending to draw them toward the center of the body.

This show is the culmination of a long held obsession with the movement of liquids. As a child I would spend long hours traveling to school on trains - winter was my favourite time to do this. As the rain tore down outside in the dark streaks of water would appear on the windows and the acceleration of the train would curve and warp these into fantastical patterns that would occupy for hours on end. As I grew up I could often be found failing to concentrate at the back of chemistry class whilst pouring purloined liquids of different colours and viscosity onto the work surface in front of me. It is the implication of movement frozen in the drops and streaks, that draws me to creating large scale representation of gravity's inevitable draw on liquids. Using techniques picked up over the years of photographing and filming graffiti artists "Gravity" will be an installation created using materials that best represent the acceleration of colour over a surface.

Timid biography

Timid started life as a photographer, perhaps literally. Both his father and sister earned their livings as aerial photographers - often bringing their work home with them to be displayed right across the kitchen table. Having spent years only experiencing images as seen from above he rebelled and began photographing buildings and faces close up and defocused. A love of decaying architecture led to Timid onto demolition sites to capture buildings as they expired, here he came into contact with other artists making use of the space. Graffiti and it's relationship to these buildings have fascinated him ever since. Over time through friendships with graffiti artists Timid has progressed from merely photographing them and their work to working alongside them - contributing sculpture and prints to be combined with the form. His art is both a reflection and a progression of this modern artform, combining new materials and techniques of representation - LED lights, latex paints, sculpture and video.

PHIL FROST book launch

Thursday 3rd April 2008 6-9pm

We are honoured to be hosting the exclusive UK book launch and signing of this eagerly awaited monograph, dedicated to the inimitable, internationally acclaimed painter, Phil Frost.

published by Damiani Editore
text by Carlo McCormick
ISBN 978 88 6208 024 8
italian / english
pages: 162
illustrations: 164
binding: hardback
release: spring 2008
price: £25.00

"During the '90s Phil Frost devised an immediately recognisable art on the streets of New York, covering walls and scrapped materials - old doors, tables and objets trouvés - with a white texture that fuses primitivism, graffiti, street art and graphic design. Following this trace of extraordinary visual impact, which recalls Australian and Hawaiian pictorial languages, the book Frost reconstructs the evolution of a graphic cipher rich in abbreviations, symbols and stylised logos that give this self taught artist‚s works the primordial character of tribal articles. If it is true, as Phil Frost believes, "that within every person there is an indigenous expression of themselves," his artistic action consists of "tattooing" the greatest possible number of surfaces, be they an old baseball bat or a girl's skin. After working extensively on the streets, gaining fame among the musical community and skateboarders, Frost's popularity was confirmed in 1995 when PBS did a documentary about him. This won him admission to the gallery and museum circuit."

* Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: March 28 - April 19, 2008


A fusion of the chaos of metropolis and the sensation of oriental balance - this is the conception of Oriental Roots, Bruno Bogossian's first individual exhibition. The artist, also known as BR, is member of the Flesh Beck Crew. His graffiti works on walls have been admired by Rio's locals throughout the city. The exhibition opens on March 27th, which is the National Graffiti Day. The Movimento Gallery is one of the first and exclusive places for artists who use a contemporary language toward the graffiti segment.

As a Manga fan, BR reveals the influence of Japanese comics in the Oriental Roots exhibition. Besides his distinctive trade mark as a member of the Flesh Beck Crew, the public will can see a new style, in which volume and color effects are allowed much more freedom.

BR believes that the graffiti art is not linked to a standardized esthetic. Hence, it is possible to apply several social and cultural concepts to the paintings. This idea is also valid to Street Art - technique transposal from walls to canvases . Unlike the forerunners of the Spray Art, who used to shrug off traditional methods, like canvas usage or use of diverse techniques, BR believes that refinement is necessary.

"Graffiti on the street walls does not necessarily intend to please the society. It is like an artistic vomit. They are reviews of the consumer society. When you pass, however, from walls to canvases, there is a concern to associate technique to a drapery that catch public's eye. Even though Street Art determine a distance limit and use a shape focused on beauty and harmony, such graffiti segment is allowing the professionals of spray to access the competitive Art Market.", said BR.

Elph: Spirits and Bitumen

You are all invited to come along between 7-10pm, sip on some rum, and enjoy the work of one of our favourite artists, ELPH. It is a solo exhibition that will include massive paintings, mural work in the space, beautiful drawings, screen prints, a full size sculpture of one of his characters, and the launch of his latest publication of drawings and paintings. We're all going to paint a mural together at the Art School on the afternoon of the 19th, so pop down if you want to see ELPH paint.

ELPH is a Scottish illustrator, animator, graphic designer and graffiti artist based in Edinburgh. He is famous worldwide for his big nosed, "wino" characters that now float and stroll around the streets of the UK. He'll be painting one of these characters in a mural at the Glasgow School of Art on the 19th March in conjunction with the Mural Society as part of the exhibition. He has exhibited across the UK and internationally and was recently included in the Tristan Manco, "Street Sketchbook", published by Thames and Hudson. ELPH says, "There are many mixed ideas in the show, a bit like changing the channel on your cable television every 2 minutes. The show goes from war reportage to booze Britain and then to some weird fashion programs.

Wastelands and Wilderness

Parskid and Chip7

Parskid's work focuses on his interests in dark rituals, mythology, sacrifice and spirituality in a world of lush forests and natural surroundings. This is greatly influenced by the forests of the Pacific Northwest where he works and lives. Parskid's painting style utilizes a unique detailed way of painting only with spray paint by using various techniques of masking, stencils and brushwork. His work has been exhibited in many cities in the United States including LA and NYC and abroad in Australia, Taiwan, Spain and the UK. His work has been published in the following magazines: Hi-Frustose, King Brown, Overspray, Art Prostitute, Cool'eh, Novum, Beautiful/Decay, Day in the Lyfe, and Dirty Soup as well as published books, Dot Dot Dash, Canceled Flight, War of Monstars, Pictoplasma 2 and Monstaah!. Parskid characters are no strangers to the streets of Seattle and freight train lines of the United States.

Chip7, also with a background in freight train art and graffiti hails from the opposite side of the US. His work explores brightly colored confessions of a clutter brain through science fiction psychedelic fantasy. Chip7 was trying to paint pretty much everything he could shake a stick at around industrial New Jersey,and where ever the wind took him.Years of painting got him some wonderful memories and adventures, people who hate him, like him, and his work in a few books. Fun and some legal problems go hand and hand. His studio work deals with a range of sources including memories and dreams. Subjects range from both personal and historical using a range of materials including found printed matter collage, animation cel paint, oils, and spray paint. While his nickname remains there are no silver block letters being painted on canvas, and he can no longer be found in the layup all weekend. The ensemble cast that are scattered across the many layers,and shapes of his work range from his own creations of eyeball droids, and neon monsters to a few cameos by Asian heroes inspired by his time living in South East Asia. The semi obsessive ''paranoid'' nature of his current work also deals with theories of global commotion,and catastrophe of the past, present, and possible near future in a somewhat playful manner.

Launching February 23 at The Bronx Museum's new Project Space, Made From Love explores the myths that surround the graffiti movement. Graffiti as an art movement has transcended age, gender, race, culture, and class, which is revolutionary in a world that finds boundaries with all these issues.

New Image Art is pleased to announce the first Los Angeles solo exhibition by SWOON, "Drown Your Boats." Partially inspired by Angela Carter's "Burning Your Boats," this show, and much of SWOON's work is not only a momentary glimpse in contemporary life; her work speaks of tales, legends, and variations on mythic themes, sparked by great vitality, inventiveness, and a deeply macabre imagination. Having recently participated in an armada of sorts SWOON along with other fellow Pittsburgh "boat punks" constructed their own flotilla and sailed down the Hudson and Mississippi Rivers. For this new exhibition SWOON will be executing a canoe as her central installation piece that will later become part of a Deitch Projects show this Fall.

INSA is a major player in the London Graffiti scene, well known worldwide for his technical spray-can abilities as well as his iconic posters of abstract ladies' legs in fetish heels.

But INSA is more than a Graffiti Artist. Since graduating from Goldsmiths College of Art in 2001, he has developed the themes within his work. He depicts fashionable, iconic images and objects that modern society craves and obsesses over, alongside the objects commonly associated with fetish, to encourage the viewer to critically appraise what arouses and excites them. He not only makes aesthetic, well crafted pieces of art that have value in their own right, but also weaves layers of critical meaning within each piece, challenging the viewer and particularly the sub-cultures he subscribes to. Within his work he expresses the confusion of a generation who have grown up bombarded with brands, products and sex.

INSA is a rising star in the graphic art, product, graffiti, and design worlds, having already exhibited in London, New York and LA, undertaken private commissions from NIKE and Carhartt and worked on product collaborations with Kangol, Oki-Ni and Kid Robot. His work is highly collectable, so this exhibition should not be missed as

INSA is producing limited edition prints on stretched PVC exclusively for Recoat. Not only this, but INSA will be giving a free limited edition "Buy My Love" T-shirt to the first 20 people through the door at the opening on the 15th of February at 7pm. Plus due to themes within his work and the kind sponsorship from 'Violate', the first 10 people to arrive in full fetish outfits will win tickets and year long memberships to the club night.

Couples and singles are invited to spend Valentine's Day at Crewest for the Downtown Art Walk on Thursday, February 14, 2008 from Noon to 9pm with a live musical performance by MEZKLAH starting at 8pm.

Arterial Lines Video :

The BLVD Gallery Project Room is a collaborative effort between BLVD Gallery and TRIPLE, a new boutique in the Ballard neighborhood on Historic Ballard Ave. The goal of "The Project Room" is to Create a small venue for emerging artists to develop and expand on concepts through Site specific installations. The first Installation in the Project Room is "Arterial Lines" by Nhon Nguyen, a Seattle based artist who is using the opportunity to create a mural that reflect on his experiences living in Osaka Japan over the past 3 years. This piece will continue to be worked over the course of the installation, eventually incorporating audio of field recordings in Osaka and the contributions of a variety of local artists. There will also be a serigraph created to coincide with the installation.

"Today's modern society is so dependent on technology that it has become so important in our everyday existence. Modern cities are hardwired to support and supply people with the power and communication sources that they need. Having lived and worked in Japan I feel that no where else in the world this is more evident than the major cities of Japan. What fascinated me about living in Japan was how efficient everything was as a result of their advanced technology. The downside to all this technology is that it requires a lot of power and all the cables and wires to carry it. In the US, we bury most of our power cables but in Japan, they are run above ground due to the threat of earthquake damage. The title Arterial Lines is in reference to how this system of power and communication lines are comparatively important to the functioning of the city, much like our own circulatory system that keeps us alive. These wires are the veins and arteries that keeps the city alive."

BLVD Gallery is proud to present "Trade Bloc", a group show that aims to present the global flavor of the urban art milieu. The concept of this show came out of a series of conversations about globalism and art. What are the benefits of a truly Global art market? What are the effects of the internet on artists ability to gain recognition without the participation of the traditional channels of media exposure? We have assembled a group of great artists from Asia, North America, South America, and Europe whose work we feel perfectly illustrate this new borderless world in which we live.

Upper Playground In Association With FIFTY 24PDX Gallery Presents


FIFTY 24PDX Gallery presents "Dolores, Las Lagrimas Y Las Rosas", an exhibit of new paintings and works on paper from Chilean artist Basco. Featuring a two-dimensional realism that is striking for its simplicity and confrontational playfulness, Basco works in his Santiago studio and on the streets of various South American cities. He is a young artist, influenced as much by "traditional" painters such De Kooning, Rothko, Motherwell, and Miro as he is by his South American contemporaries like Herbert Baglione, Vitche, Os Gemeos, Nunca, and Blu.

For his first solo show in Portland, Basco (Vazko) has brought together a selection of works on paper and new paintings in his signature style. Some months ago he stumbled upon a vast collection of vintage magazines from Argentina & Chile. Using the hand-drawn images by "manterola" artists and hand-painted photographs from the vintage ephemera, Basco moved his work in a new direction of mixed media, restructuring the faces and images of 1930s- & '40s-era South America.

An opening reception for "Dolores" will be held Thursday, February 7th, from 6:00-9:30pm. Basco will be in attendance, along with music from musician Erik Beats and libations from Redhook. "Dolores" runs through March 29th, 2008.

Arkitip is a limited-edition, hand-numbered art book for which excellence in production is of primary importance. The magazine publishes site-specific artworks at a low cost to make art available to collectors at all economic levels. The magazine;s founding principles are (1) support the arts, (2) promote freedom of expression, and (3) make art affordable and accessible.

Each issue is treated like a group gallery show, "curated" by founder Scott Andrew Snyder. Artists are given a specific number of pages to create whatever they wish. They are asked to create site-specific work for the magazine, which changes in size every year. This ensures that the work will be original thereby making it more valuable to the readers. For the Artist, making a contribution to Arkitip is like creating an installation that is distributed around the world. It's a traveling exhibition that art devotees can take home with them to look at again and again.

Gathering past, present and future contributors, Arkitip uses the aforementioned principles as a foundation to pull together a motley crew of diverse artists for a group show entitled HIGHMATH. The title fits as it explains the relationship between the artists, which is multifaceted. Consisting primarily of work on paper including silk screens, lithographs and hand-done originals. Artists will exhibit both existing and never before seen work.

For the first time ever Arkitip will hand over the design responsibilities for the issue edition to an outside source. That source being the design trio Wood Wood. Arkitip will also produce their 44th issue edition as the working catalog for the exhibition. The Danish design collective Wood Wood was founded in 2002 by Brian SS Jensen, Karl-Oskar Olsen and Magnus Carstensen. They initiated their business as a limited t-shirt label and opened their first small shop in central Copenhagen.

James Top, a controversial and legendary Graffiti Artist from New York City, will host his first solo show of the New Year, "Afrology" at the new Essex Street Gallery on Friday February 22nd, 2008, 6pm-Midnight. Special invited press will get a sneak peak of the compelling collection on Thursday February 21st, 2008, 6-10pm. Afrology debuts as seventeen artistic variations of the 1970's hairstyle, the "Afro", and depicts controversial, nostalgic and historical messages of the African-American experience via mixed media and graffiti art.

Better known by the media as "The People's Graffiti Artist," James has gained his legendary status as a founding member of the The Odd Partners (TOP). As a graffiti crew, TOP would come to dominate the New York City subway system during the mid to late 1970's. Later, James evolved from the "tags" on the subways to elaborate canvas pieces such as those displayed in Afrology. Today James is an art instructor with his latest graffiti workshop having been the subject of controversy within the national and international media. While serving as an example of expression for younger artists, James Top hopes to use the Afrology exhibit to express what he calls "The Black Experience" united by sports, music, historical and current events.

"I take great pride in capturing what I feel is the African American experience in America," says James Top about his solo exhibition here in New York. "It is my time not only to be the voice of graffiti art but also to be the voice of the people in my community." The Essex Street Gallery is located in the Lower East Side, where the heart of graffiti explosion is synonymous with rebellion, controversy and talented artistic expression. "Our [gallery showings] create a window into [the] artists brought together to inspire and support each other in an often hostile environment," says gallery owner, Jordan Cory Sorman.

Afrology is anticipated to be one of the most widely attended street art shows not only because of the significant talent of James Top, but because of his profound messages about being an African-American man in New York City. For fans, it is a true display of how far your street credibility can propel you into an artistic position of prestige and respect.

About James Top: After spending 10 years using New York City trains as murals, James Top has been hailed as one of New York's legendary graffiti artists by the media and street aficionados alike. Since his mural works on trains back in 1986, James is now working as an instructor and consultant with schools, charities, and youth based organizations. James Top is also the producer and host of "Graffiti NYC," a New York City weekly cable TV show which explores the impact of graffiti's history in different neighborhoods.

About Essex Street Gallery: Opened in November of 2007, the Essex Street Gallery has housed a variety of creative artist from around the world such as Pedro Cuube Arieta and Jordan Schaps. Jordan Cory Sorman is the owner of Essex Street Gallery and has dedicated the gallery to opening its doors every month for new innovative artist. The Gallery is located on 27 ½ Essex Street in the Lower East Side.

Die Ateliergemeinschaft getting-up begann zusammen mit dem Stadtteilbeirat vor acht Jahren mit der Planung eines riesigen Graffitiwandbildes in Rothenburgsort.

Nick Walker: Pretty Decorating

Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art is proud to present Pretty Decorating, Bristol-based artist Nick Walker's first solo exhibition in the United States. Pretty Decorating will feature Walker's most intricate stencil paintings to date, all related to the satirical narrative of the English Vandal from his "Morning After" series. Walker presents some 30 new works in the exhibition, revealing the exploits of a character whose mission is world domination through artistic expression. Pretty Decorating will be on view February 2 through February 24, 2008, with an opening reception held on February 2, from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. A custom-designed, 20-foot hot air balloon, the Vandal's mode of transport, will be tethered outside the gallery and scheduled to launch over Hollywood air space as part of the exhibition.

Pretty Decorating follows the path of one man - the Vandal. Each painting represents the character's endeavors to bring the dull architecture of the world's largest cities back to life, animated with color - a more dramatic turn on the term 'painting the town red'. The paintings reveal the Vandal's chosen cities (including Bristol, Sydney, London, New York, and Los Angeles), his tools, and clues as to how he sets about achieving his ultimate goal, but never disclose his true identity. The series of works entitled 'The Morning After' illustrate the Vandal taking a moment to observe his achievements from the night before. "He is the quintessential Englishman," states Walker, "observing something he shouldn't have done, getting away with it - a good night's reflective moment. Up close or at a distance, he's scott free." The Vandal is the archetypal practitioner of urban art, and an ironic symbol of the myth that now surrounds this worldwide phenomenon. The show will unfold like a story, each painting depicting another page in the narrative.

Girls On Top

UK's first female Graffiti show, in Canterbury, Kent UK.

The next big thing, Girls on Top, is holding an exhibition of their art. The show, taking the same name as the collective, is the first all female Graffiti show to be seen in the UK. The show aims to celebrate the feminine style in Graffiti, which is rapidly gaining popularity and respect. GOT’s style is funky and fresh and they are here to rule the dance!

Founded in 2000, Girls on Top was brought back to life in July 2007 with new members - some being introduced by Thames and Hudson, publishers of ‘Graffiti Woman’, the “who’s who” of female street vandals - at a Graffiti jam held at Stockwell, one of the last remaining London “Halls of Fame” – Ken Livingstone does not like illegal art very much, except for street art guru Bankski (spelling intended!).

The crew is united through a shared passion for Graffiti but GOT members are also involved in fashion, illustration, community art, fine art, break- dancing, tattooing and photography. Members are based all over England and various parts of Europe.

Michael Alan "Draw-A-Thing"

The McCaig-Welles Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by artist Michael Alan. The exhibition will open with a reception on Friday February 1st from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

Michael Alan, also known as the infamous graffiti artist "Fade" has painted the NYC streets for the past 17 years. A native New Yorker and figure artist, Alan incorporates mixed media and intense crosshatching, ultimately creating figurative hybrids and a surreal, dark narrative.

His current work "The Time Travelers", depicts creatures that are caught in the past, present, and the future, surviving in a alternate reality.

Alan studied art at Pratt Institute and graduated from The School of Visual Arts. Alan's work has previously been exhibited on The Today Show, The Village Voice, The New York Times, Art World Digest, Elemental Magazine, Time Out NY, N.Y Press, N.Y ARTS and many others. Alan has exhibited in solo and group shows both nationally and internationally.

The First Ever Mash-Up of Street Artists, Art Geeks and New York's most infamous Graffiti Vandals all asking the following question: What would you do without us?

Illegal street artists serve important civic, commercial and artistic purposes. They beautify decaying urban neighborhoods. They re-imagine and lend creativity to uninspired city landscapes and utilitarian surfaces. They provide imagination, wonder and a style to be co-opted by corporate advertisers. They counter the overbearing messages of billboards, signs and other invasive marketing techniques. They reclaim public space, providing a voice for the people in the midst of a city at an ever-further remove. Yet, they still practice their art in secret, hiding from overzealous police and a legal system that punishes their democracy, seeks to handcuff their art, stifle their creativity and silence their voice.

WRITERS STRIKE will display all "illegal" work alongside and in comparison to blank walls, unadorned objects, intrusive advertisementsand the boring paraphernalia of urban life. Let the viewer decide the value of our art.

Sigi 'DARE' von Koeding

'Dare to be different'

Graffiti artist for over twenty years, Sigi von Koeding, education in typography and calligraphy, sprays under the name of DARE. Born in Basel in 1968, Dare is one of the most prolifi c artist of his generation. He has already realised more than 1000 graffi tis in 13 countries all over the world. After several exhibitions in Switzerland between 1992 and 1995, Dare exhibited at the Art Frankfurt fair and at the Kallman Museum in Munich in 1996.

His works can be interpreted as written selfportraits, every letter is unique and has it's own expression, refl ecting the artists daily feelings and representing his name. Dare Induces his own writing style, punctuated by elegant and fl uid poses. Always exploring new posibilities and techniques on his canvases. Qualifi ed as « branding », his style has an unique identity, including letters outlined with extreme precision, layers of bright colours and original backgrounds.

Always in experimentation through a growing career, in the spring of 2007, he painted the appartement of Gunter Sachs in Velden (Austria) together with Ata Bozaci (Toast) and is today the curator of the Carhartt Gallery in Weil am Rhein (D). Vernissage Jeudi 17 janvier 2008 / de 18 à 21 Hrs / En présence de l'artiste Sigi 'DARE' von Koeding 'Dare to be different'

Artiste Graffi ti depuis plus de vingt ans, Sigi von Koeding, a fait son apprentissage dans le domaine de la typographie et spraye sous le nom de DARE. Né a Bâle en 1968, il est l'un des artistes les plus doués de sa génération. Il a déjà réalisé plus d'un millier de graffi tis dans plus de 13 pays à travers le monde. Ses premières expositions eurent lieu en Suisse entre 1992 et 1995. Il exposa par la suite ses oeuvres à la foire de l'art à Frankfort et au Kallman Museum à Munich en 1996.

Ses oeuvres sur toile reprennent exclusivement son blaze DARE (pseudonyme dans le milieu du graffi ti), induisant son propre style d'écriture, ponctué d'une certaine élégance et de fl uidité dans ses déliés. Son style, qu'il qualifi e lui-même de «branding», laisse apparaître des lettrages très travaillées, qu'il agrémente d'à-plats de couleurs sur des fonds travaillés. Pour lui, ses lettrages sont considérès comme des autoportraits à travers lesquels il exprime son humeur et ses pensées, ne cessant jamais d'explorer les possibilités de sa peinture sur toile. En renouvellement perpétuel à travers une carrière qui ne cesse de croître, au printemps 2007, il peint avec Ata Bozaci alias «Toast», l'appartement de Gunter Sachs à Velden (Autriche). Il est aujourd'hui le curateur de la Carhartt Gallery à Weil am Rhein en Allemagne. © Speerstra Gallery/ M.Capucine 2008

Urban Feedback

Urban art is everywhere. More and more we see media, their products, and design in general inspired by this still young and new artform.

Experiencing graffiti and street art for many years ourselves, we believe that this artform has not yet earned the appropriate recognition it deserves. We wanted to give this controversial art an opportunity to claim its high artistic integrity.

The exhibition wants to show all people, walking, moving, and living in a urban landscape a different perspective on streetart. Advertisements and political propaganda material are the eyecatching marks of urban landscapes in our time.

The basic ambition of the project is to demonstrate the meaning and benefit of this artform for the general public. We want to highlight the phenomenon streetart and illustrate its beauty and variety. Who owns the public space? Who is allowed to shape and arrange it?

Alex Pardee

Upper Playground In Association With FIFTY 24PDX Gallery Presents "Owlex"

FIFTY 24PDX Gallery presents "Owlex", an exhibit of new paintings, drawings and installations from San Francisco artist Alex Pardee, completed over 31 consecutive sleepless nights. Alex's style is one conceived through watching years of horror movies, writing graffiti, and listening to gangster rap. His work best represents that of a vibrant undead circus sideshow. Final pieces are often brought to life by translating random shapes and colors into signs of torment and absurdity. By juxtaposing these two conflicting moods, Alex makes his works more personal to his viewers, forcing them to project their own feelings and emotions onto each character in his twisted universe.

Alex Pardee's devotion to his art has gained the attention of Warner Bros., Reprise Records, Upper Playground, Hurley International, RIDE snowboards, DefJux, and more. In 2004 he was tapped by the gold-selling rock group The Used to design the artwork for their album, In Love and Death, as well as the band's merchandise, Website, marketing campaign, and a music video. He is currently working on an animated movie for Warner Bros based on the Chadam character that he created for The Used in 2007. The film should be finished around Summer 2008.

FIFTY 24PDX Gallery / Upper Playground
23 NW 5th Ave, Portland, OR 97209

Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday 12:00-7:00PM, or By Appointment.
