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:

Friends: The Art of JOKA

April 16, 2010
There are very few artists that impress me in the art world as many people just want to make something quick and “sell-able.” JOKA (HERE) is one of the handful of people that I am completely blow away with in terms of how much time and just hist entire technique to painting. JOKA’s “brush” is a toothpick(s)! You have to see his work to really understand but each painting is made up of thousands of small dots painted on using toothpicks dipped in paint and then used as a brush. The amount of dedication and time he puts in his work is just remarkable. JOKA just recently opened his second solo show at Art N Souls Studios (HERE) and will be having many more exciting work coming out throughout the year. Check out more of his work below or visit his site over at:
