ASKEW One releases exclusive serigraph print entitled LOST ISLAND LOST ANGELS

November 24 2014 . 07:55pm

 
This print is based on the mural painted by ASKEW in Downtown Los Angeles in 2011, at the tail end of a 2 month stay in the US, which included a drive from LA to Detroit and residency at Miami’s Fountainhead. LA has always felt like a home away from home for ASKEW and this mural is his homage to the parallels between sister cities Auckland, New Zealand (Lost Island) and Los Angeles, USA (Lost Angels).

– Hand-pulled, two-screen serigraph with split fountain on 300 gsm Fabriano 5HP paper.
– Apx. 420 x 310 mm/16.5″ x 12.2″ with deckled edges.
– Signed and Editioned
– Edition: 25

Huffington Post | Jesse Hazelip’s “Mark of Cain” at Known Gallery Highlights Prison Injustice

November 16 2014 . 04:50pm

jeesehuff

With his first solo Los Angeles show, “Mark of Cain,” artist Jesse Hazelip confronts injustice with a powerful weapon, his art. Hazelip addresses issues surrounding the United States’ increasingly privatized prison system with beautiful, profound, deeply symbolic art that combines delicate pencil and pen drawings with elements of graffiti and tattooing. Born in Cortez, Colorado where he lived amidst the Ute and Navajo Nation, Jesse moved to Santa Barbara when he was 13 and got involved in the graffiti scene, developing his art skills, then graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA with a BFA. Transitioning into galleries, he continues to use wheat paste and paint public space, running his own “ad campaigns” with graffiti and posters to reach as many free minds as possible.

Pose, KC Ortiz, Vizie, and Omens | Further/Farther opens on November 8th, 2014 The Seventh Letter Flagship Store and Gallery

FF_FLYER

On November 8th, 2014 The Seventh Letter Flagship Store and Gallery will be showing a new body of work from Pose, KC Ortiz, Vizie, and Omens. They have worked together collectively for years, so it would make sense they would create a body of work to show as a group. The show, titled “Further/Farther” is a reflection of the collectives influence from psychedelia, youth and popular culture, design, depth, mind-bending colors, and buddhist prayer flags. The work is comprised of both art and installation. Together, the collective bodies of work come together to bend the realm of the traditional setting and bleed into an environmental experience.
