Sealed in archival matte varnish. Finished in satin varnish. __________________________________________________One of 2 works for the group show A MAJOR MINORITY at @mirusgallery, San FranciscoOpening Reception, Friday August 18, 7-10pm August 18 - September 8, 2017curated by @poesiamirusgallery__________________________________________________A Major Minority is an international exhibition consisting of urban artists from around the world. The concept and title of the show were developed by graffiti artist and curator, Poesia, who is also the editor of Graffufuturism.com and the cultural instigator at the center of the growing interest in abstract, progressive and hybrid Graffiti art forms. This will be the 3rd installment of A Major Minority and a much more intimate exhibition than previous ones, which incorporated hundreds of works of art. @poesiamirusgallery elected to exhibit this smaller quantity and particular group of artists in order to display a more condensed spectrum of progressive hybrid aesthetics within the Othercontemporary Urban Art community. This intensive and extensive sampling of stylistic specimens illustrates a broad continuum of approaches and aesthetics that fall under the purview of this art form, without focusing on any one sub-genre exclusively. __________________________________________________#amajorminority #mirusgallery #Othercontemporary #vintagefuturism #mixedkidmixedmedia #midcenturymanipulate #graffuturism #builtpaintings #abstractart #mixedmedia #californiaart #westcoastart #constructionism

keepdrafting photos downloadI will be releasing my first Serigraph in 3 years this weekend [June24th] with Jonathan LeVine Projects for the group show 'Multiples of Multiples’.____________________________________'Innerfold-Overwhelm’ is based on my marker techniques sketches, referencing an illustration executed in the last 6 months. Each of the 4 transparencies was hand painted to give the piece a painterly and hands on, illustrated feel. This would be considered my most dense and heavily structured print to date, reflecting a feeling of being engulfed and surrounded. The overwhelming, constant barrage of the unwanted, be it politics, authority overstepping, or just good old general anxiety. __________________________________________________Innerfold-Overwhelm24 x 24 inches4-color Serigraph on 290gsm Coventry rag fine art paper with deckled edge.
