May 31, 2010
Each day this week I will be posting info on all of the events/shows I will be taking part in this summer. The first event that I am excited to announce is Electric Windows (HERE) presented by Open Space Gallery (HERE) which takes place Saturday July 31st in Beacon, New York. The event will feature some insane talent as urban artists including Avic Tchernichovski, Big Foot, Buxtonia, Cern, Chris Stain, Chris Yormick, Depoe, Elbow Toe, Elia Gurna, Ellis G, Erik Otto, Eugene Good, Faust, Gaia, Joe Iurato, Mr Kiji, Logan Hicks, Michael De Feo, PaperMonster, Peat Wollaeger, Rick Price, Riiisa Boogie, Ron English, Ryan Bubnis, Ryan Williams, Skewville, and TC. This is an event you do not want to miss!! You will be able to meet some of your favorite artists painting massive canvases. It is a great event not just to meet the artists but to take in the beautiful city of Beacon, visit Open Space Gallery, and have a great time. Check out more info below and the show flyer:

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.

Koleszar: A Friend With Knives

May 26, 2010

It is always important to surround yourself with people who are driven, motivated and push you to do bigger and better things. Koleszar (HERE) just sent over this photo of a recent stencil he completed. This is his process:

“What I am doing is breaking the image down into a color half tone, color separating out the cyan magenta yellow and black, and then cutting out all the dots. Time consuming to say the least. This one here was almost 2 months of cutting alone.”-Koleszar

I am blown away by how much time this type of stencil takes and it is a great example of how stencils can be used to really push art in a powerful way. The things your can do with your hand using stencils and your imagination is unlimited. Hopefully Koleszar’s work motivates you to try something new and creative today.
