I've been working on some new pieces for a "Day of the Dead" themed art show at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco. The show is booked with great talent from around the Bay. It's also 1AM's one-year anniversary event, so it's a great excuse to check out the space. Hope to see you there. Here's more information via 1AM Gallery's website:
Thanks to our great fans, supporters, and artists, we’ve made it through our FIRST YEAR. Through the good, the bad, and the ugly from the past year, the most important lesson we have learned is that street and urban art is here to stay. To commemorate our anniversary year, 1:AM gallery is hosting Eternal Sleep, a tribute to Dia de los Muertos. For this exhibition, we have reanimated our lineup of artists from our inaugural year to haunt our walls with skulls, death, and the celebration of life through their eyes. This will be a mergence of the soul of 1:AM with graffiti writers/artists being displayed alongside fine artists, photographers, sculptors, and custom toy designers. Eternal Sleep epitomizes what 1:AM strives to accomplish, bringing people from different walks of life together.
The diverse artist lineup:
Peter Gronquist, Mear One, Mark Bode, 64 Colors, Alice Koswara, Bam, Bryn Taylor, Camer, Carlos A, Dave Crosland, Dia, Dril One, Eli Leppert, Hyde, Jorone, Josh Ellingson, King 157, Kiro, Kob, KRK Ryden, Lango, Laurel Anderson, Lawrence Yang, Lily Black, Nate1, Oliver Fader, Orly Locquaio, Peabe, Pemex, Pete Castro, Phoneticontrol, Reuben Rude, Reyes, Toro, Twick, Vogue
Expect nothing less than a spectrum of art strumming the joyful and mournful tones of life and death that will reverberate to the deepest parts of your soul.
Opening reception is on October 16th from 7 – 10pm. DJ Don Kainoa, Spinnerty, and Bozak will be dropping the beats with guest turntablist from Abstract Revolver. The opening is a 21+ event. Exhibition will run through November 6th.
