Artwalk Event
August 12th, 2010
6-9pm

The artists come from all walks of life as well as from all over the world including Australia, United Kingdom, Paris, and throughout the United States. The show is not about how intricate, how many layers, or how much time it took these artists to cut each stencil but about showcasing the history, evolution, and future of stencil art. Paper Monster, the exhibits curator, has this to say about bringing the Friends With Knives to Crewest Gallery: “I chose to put these artists together for many different reasons. Some of the artists I have either been a fan of or have had the honor of showing with, collaborating, or meeting by chance in my life. As a whole we push each other and hopefully push the creativity of the stencil graffiti/art community. Being stencil artists we have a common bond and we know the hardships and struggles that come with the work that we do. The process of cutting stencils can be grueling and demanding. It is extremely difficult to gain respect and admiration for the huge amount of work and dedication that we put in our work from the art world but we are willing to do everything in our power to share our talent with the world. Many of us have been creating stencils for five to ten years and some of us are relatively unknown artists that deserve an opportunity to shine. My hope is that everyone in the show uses this opportunity to support their love and hopefully they will be leaders in the future as they continue to push stencil art further.”-PaperMonster

Info via the Electric Windows Site:
“24 street artists will converge in Beacon, NY on Saturday July 31st to create live artwork and have their work installed on the exterior of a 19th century factory building. Electric Windows draws its name from the former electric blanket factory at the foot of Mount Beacon that will act as the backdrop for the event. E.W. turns the idea of a gallery inside out using the large industrial windows as frames for each artists work. Usually street art is not so easily contained in a rectangle but this installation ingeniously bridges the gap between indoor and outdoor art both inverting and subverting the concept of the art gallery. Each of the 24 pieces will be approximately 8 ft x 12 ft.

Photos: NY Art Book Fair 2009 @PS1ContempArt

October 5, 2009
I had the amazing opportunity to take part in the 2009 NY Art Book Fair signing copies of the Year One Rewind book by DirtyPilot (HERE) for the SCB Art Book Collection – Booth Z-01 alongside artists Cern, Daze, and Chris Stain. The fair had a huge amount of eye candy with books, zines, posters, and magazines featuring a wide range of art. I may be biased but our booth had the best collection of art books but maybe that is just my opinion. You can check out images of the fair below and even catch images of Martha Cooper signing copies of her books during the fair. Thanks to everyone who stopped by.

November 16, 2008
——————————————————-
This weekend was the opening of the Stencil Group Show for Art Whino Gallery and it has been one of my favorite shows this year. The show brings together stencil artists from all over the world into one collective space where people can truly take in the variety and ingenuity behind beautiful and raw stencil art. The entire collection will be opened until Dec 6th  with a special presentation by author of Stencil Nation, Russell Howze on November 23rd from 12-6pm.  You do not want to miss out on getting some affordable original works from some of the worlds most talented stencil artists including: PaperMonster, John Koleszar, LECKOmio, Chris Stain, Jef Aerosol,  E.L.K., Mefee, SOULE, Janet Bike Girl, Logan Hicks, Dave Lowell, Jazirock, Peter K, Billy Mode, PRVRT and many more.
John Koleszar and Stefan Winterle aka LECKOmio flew in for the show (John from Arizona and Stefan from Germany) and it was such a great experience to meet and work with them. They both helped a ton with the install and brought some incredible art to the event. I can not thank them enough for how big of a help they were and how honored I felt to be working with them. It was a pleasure and they are not just amazing stencil artists, they are amazing people. You can check out their work here:
