What do you want people to take away from your show?

Overall I want people to take away two things. The first is this sense of chaos as to what to start with first; the collage; the portraits; the textures, and just dive deep into each piece. This is the perfect time to just spend hours exploring all of the pieces together and there are some real surprises in this show. The second thing I want people to take away is a sense of inspiration. At the end of the day that is what all artists are trying to do; to inspire ordinary people to express themselves in unique and artistic ways…..For More Visit (HERE)

Openings June 4th: Black Light Art Experiment and JoKa’s Solo Show

June 3, 2010
Two very interesting shows open this weekend. The first is the UV Urban Black Light Art Experiment where artists have all painted works with fluorescent paints that react to black lights featuring works from Peter Krsko, Mike Ciccotello, Joe Iurato, Josl, Luv 1, Aja Washington, Jim Hancocks and PaperMonster. I created several pieces for this and I don’t even know how they will look like so I am super excited to see the entire collection. For more info check the flyer below. The second show you should catch is a solo show by JoKa where he has created a series of portraits slightly larger than a penny all created using toothpicks as a brush! You have to see it to believe the detail in these small miniatures. Check out more details below:

Opening Photos: Brooklynite Gallery “Go Get Your Shinebox”

November 23, 2009
This past Saturday I headed over to the opening of Brooklynite Gallery’s Go Get Your Shinebox group show. The show was fantastic and it was great to see and meet so many people that I have immense respect for including: Meggs (HERE), Aiko (HERE) , Luna Park (HERE), Shai Dahan (from Abztract ) and other amazing friends that passed by for the show. The night was electric with energy and the participating artists in the show brought some quality work out for the crowd to see and even interact with. My specific shinebox dealt with a Mask Shop and playing with themes of dual identities, mystery, and our dreams of becoming something more than who or what we are today. I also had the opportunity to work on another one of my “Black Holes” along the back walls of the gallery along with artists such as Dain, Specter, Dada, Peru Ana, Billi Kid, Kozbe and Chris Mendoza. Overall I had a blast and it is a great show to end November right before heading out to Miami for Art Basel next week. Catch images of the entire opening below and stay posted for more photos later this week.
