Inverted Piece by MAC

This was painted as if it were a photo negative- whatever should be light was painted dark and vise versa. All those black marks on the face end up becoming highlights when you take a picture of the wall and invert all the colors. it then looks "normal". Painting like that is kind of a brain exercise.

THE STREET GOSPEL REACHES MANU CHAO

February 22 2008 . 05:32pm

So word got back to Manu Chao about the recent mural painted by Retna, Werc, and Dame. It’s amazing to see that what started as a simple idea took shape and form and then within a matter of days this street gospel has spread across city’s and continents to be delivered to the person who originally inspired the idea. Thank you Manu Chao for inspiring and supporting the arts.

a. Muse Art Gallery is pleased to welcome the outstanding display of original artworks designed specifically for the show ‘Wicked of the West’, artists include: Robin Grass, Amandalynn, Reyes, Norm, Margaretta Jo, Holly Ellis, Megan Shaffer, Fate, Yutaro Sakai, Phil Holt, Pete the Painter, Prairie Prince, and Lucien Shapiro

 

Originally starting as an art show displaying exclusively the works of Amandalynn and Robin Grass, this art show depicts characters and creatures inspired by Gregory Maguire’s novel, ‘Wicked’. His writings tell the Wicked Witch of the West’s side of the story of her time in Oz. Amandalynn and Robin teamed up with this theme in mind and did the ‘Wicked’ show in Pennsylvania in the Fall of 2007. The show was a huge success and the team decided to move the remaining body of work as well as some new pieces, out to the west coast for display. Amandalynn has decided to expand the show by adding new artists with an array of different talents, ranging from: metal sculpture, fashion design, computer animation, wood carving, tattooing, traditional portrait painting, graffiti, and fantasy based sculpture.
