January 25 2012 . 07:43am

An ambitious project involving numerous international contemporary artists and disused Military airplanes is set to make it’s debut on January 28th at the Pima Art and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona. The Boneyard Project: Return Trip will include artists Andrew Schoultz, How & Nosm, Nunca(Brazil), Retna, and Faile who will all paint their own individual airplanes, along with cockpit from Saner(Mexico). We took a trip to the desert to get you these exclusive preview photos.

The concept for resurrecting the no longer active airplanes was conceived in spring 2010 by Eric Firestone, and organized with curator Carlo Mccormick. Also on display will be previous work from Eric Firestone Gallery’s Nose Job show that took place last year featuring artist such as Aiko, Bast, Crash, Daze, El Mac, Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Futura, Erik Foss, Tara Mcpherson, Richard Prince, Lee Quinones, Kenny Scharf, and many more. We suggest that if you are near Tuscon to not miss this event!

Arizona Wetbacks a Racist Republicans X Arizona collab

June 16 2010 . 04:51pm

Los Angeles based artist Patrick Martinez uses fitted caps as his canvas to produce his latest work which is inspired by the SB1070 immigration law in Arizona that has recently been put into effect.

The artist connects the dots with the major league baseball team the "Arizona Diamondbacks" and the new immigration law in Arizona to create a subtle but yet hard hitting visual. Martinez teamed up with Quintin to produce three limited hats that work as art pieces and will be shown in a gallery context.

"I created the hat pieces to visually show the connection between the racist republicans that run the "Arizona Diamondbacks"(a major league baseball team) and how they are helping to push the Arizona SB1070 law by generous funding. I re-named the team with the racist inspired name Arizona Wetbacks because I believe it’s more of a fit based on the racist actions the owners are taking with the SB1070 bill which they are helping to advance. I created three hats for the three players on the diamondbacks of latin decent (Juan Guitterez, Gerardo Parra, and Rodrigo Lopez) that will be celebrated on the field then asked for their papers when they leave it."

"This bill is a step backwards in terms of progression. It is also a giant slap in the face to the many people that fought for equal rights in the past as well as the present. The SB1070 law has the feeling of the beginning stages of apartheid.This bill should be stopped. Arizona is down with the brown, fo-real."

2010 custom logo designs, embroidery, mexican blanket pattern and acrylic on a bootleg new era baseball cap created from scratch.
