The Opening for Dark Matter on Friday was great. Here is a photo rundown… Thanks again to Valerie Leavy for curating the show and 1 AM gallery for hosting it. It had been since Unstoppable Tomorrow Vol.1 since I had shown with Chris Burch and it is always an honor to work with him. Thanks to Stan for coming out from St. Louis, C3 for being a part of it, Casey’s pieces were rad, all in all the whole show is a killer. Painting the outside wall with Chris Burch was definitely the most fun I have had collaborating on visual work since we did the installation at Old Crow for Unstoppable Tomorrow Vol.1. If you missed the opening please check it out before it goes down Sept. 18th.-Felix
Tonight, Friday August 19th is going to be awesome. We have locals myself, Chris Burch, C3, Casey Cripe and Jade Palasek, and Stan Chisolm flew in from L.A. a couple of days ago by way of St. Louis. The set up is looking awesome. Be there tonight at 1 A.M. Gallery, 1000 Howard St., San Francisco, CA 94103. The corner of 6th and Howard. The reception goes from 6:30-10pm, and below is a link to a web post with the press release and more information, click on the photo below. The show runs from August 19th-September 18th.
This Installation is called “Through the Years”. It is comprised of boxes built with all found wood and debris, painted and drawn on and the photos are from the time around the 2003 black out in New York City, all taken with a Sony DSC 075 digital camera and printed on a home printer put into all found frames.
The City We Love at 941 Geary was off the chain. Apex and Justin Giarla really built up a great show of local SF talent and the press has been awesome. It has appeared on the Huffington Post, Juxtapoz website, 7×7, was in the SF Chronicle, SF Weekly and more. It even has made it to the Kron 4 news, and apparently they interviewed D Young V and I am praying that they show him on TV. I was so honored to be a part of this show and it was a great step for me and accomplishment to unveil the big 8’x4′ mixed media paintings on panels for the first time. Going hard non stop. It was awesome hanging out with Chad, and Hugh, Dave and Apex, Chor, Justin, Teen Witch, and all of the staff at 941 Geary. The gallery is such a beautiful temple for artwork and a great place to show these large works. It has been a great year, and Japan is coming up fast! Stay Tuned, Dark Matter is up next, then its time to go overseas! Hope everyone out there is well and working hard. -Felix
The group has formed like Voltron and APEX seems to be the head hahaha. APEX and Justin Giarla have put together an amazing showing of SF talent, and I am very very proud to part of this show. I can definitely say that I went hard for this one, big, detailed, dark, yet hopeful, colorful, and still retaining that super tripped out black line work I am known for. Everyone’s work in the show is absolutely killer, Apex is unveiling a some new stuff that will blow your mind outta gasket, literally, it is sick!!! Here are some photos of the set up for show and a link to the 941 Geary site for the press release specific info. Hope to see you all there and let’s rock and roll. Dark Matter is next weekend! Bam Bam choppin it up like sushi, ie going to Japan soon, nevermind;)-Much Love -Felix
