Primary Flight flicks from Logan Hicks

December 04 2009 . 01:56am

It’s the eve of the official Primary Flight event and two seasoned veterans of street art took to the streets early. Around midnight Shepard Fairey and Ron English started making their mark on the neighborhood of Wynwood for the Primary Flight event.

Shepard Fairey will be doing his largest mural to date this year for Primary Flight. With a wall that is nearly 20 ft tall, and 200 ft wide, this monster wall will be finished over the next few days. During this night session he was visited by KAWS and Jose Parla who got a sneak peek of what was to come over the next few nights.

Ron English worked into the morning hours doing the prep work on his mural which will be approximately 30ft wide by 15ft tall.

These are only 2 of the nearly 80 artists that will be participating in Primary Flight.

C. EMERSON PRESENTS A THOUGHT PROVOKING EXHIBIT FOR AQUA ART MIAMI

ST. PETERSBURG/ MIAMI – C.

Emerson Fine Arts proudly presents a group exhibit of drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture for Aqua Art Miami. The exhibition will include works by 10 artist of international reputation: Gary Baseman, Kyan Bishop, Clayton Chandler, Rocky Grimes, Patrick Lindhardt, Leah Oates, Pose, Push, Ryan the Wheelbarrow and Jeff Whipple. This diverse group of contemporaries represents the evolving movement of art transcending boundaries of expectations and genre. The works in the C. Emerson Aqua Art Miami exhibition relate the artists’ captivation with social/cultural issues and personal narrative. The psychological presence of these pieces engages the viewer to reexamine the conceptual basis of surrealism, pop culture and abstract art. Gary Baseman is an internationally adored pervasive artist. His iconic work is Id driven, surreal and playful. Kyan Bishop uses the Ego of her subconscious mind to express an internal struggle with her fascination of completely falling apart. Jeff Whipple advances realism to create a very surrealistic expression of human nature. Clayton Chandler, Push, Ryan the Wheelbarrow play with line quality and abstraction. They engage the viewer’s imagination to actively look far beyond the obvious. Leah Oates and Pose respond to urban experience. Oates uses layers of photography to reflect upon the transcendental experience of landscape. Pose is an influential contributor to the graffiti movement. Rocky Grimes and Patrick Lindhardt expound printmaking to extremes. Grimes’ punk rock sensibility appropriates screen printing creating multi-media installations. He challenges material consumption and culturally driven desires. Lindhardt is a master printmaker utilizing narrative traversing natural disaster. LA Times has describes Gary Baseman’s art "adorably perverse. Leah Oates’s photographs of Transitory Spaces, articulate the amassed banality of the trace and by-products from social processes and consumption” Drain Magazine. Juxtapoz recently interviewed Pose and a part of his collective We Are Supervision. They described him as “graff-writing god Pose.” Rocky Grimes a Juxtapoz favorite has recently been included in Juxtapoz Poster Art Book. Many of the artists exhibiting have had recent museum exhibitions.
