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.

Primal Urge of San Francisco celebrates its grand opening

January 26 2007 . 12:51am

Saturday, January 6th, Primal Urge of San Francisco celebrated its grand opening. Artists Marcus Pacheco, The GRIME, Yutaro, Norm, and Phil Holt, have grouped together, offering connoisseur quality tattoo work in a city known for its tattoo enthusiasm.

The artists opened the doors to their private second story studio, allowing all to enjoy in the new space they’ve created. Having left their previous location as Art Work Rebels, the new space has arrived with a new, yet familiar name, Primal Urge — a name that recalls the scope of influence this shop had in its 1990s incarnation. With Marcus Pacheco as a guiding light, Primal Urge became a focal point for what was then a new style of tattooing, art influenced by painting, a wider color palette, bold line work, images related to grafitti, pop art, etc.
