Buff Monster x Toykio gallery

I have been friends with Buff Monster for many years and have always enjoyed his illustrative sensibility of oozy pop and gore. We recently were shown in adjoining spaces in my friend Selim’s Toykio gallery. Buff did his really cool take on my Obey Icon to point people to my work. I love the mash-up! Thanks Buff Monster.

CAT ART SHOW X LOS ANGELES X January 25

An upcoming exhibit of cat-inspired art in Los Angeles is the latest opportunity for people who generally browse online cat photos and videos by themselves to appreciate them with other fans IRL (in real life).

It wasn’t difficult to find artists working today who shared a secret cat obsession. “After I got a couple of artists on board, the project snowballed,” curator Susan Michals said. “Within three weeks I had over 40 artists.” Emin, one of the biggest names on the list, “is a well known cat lover,” the curator explained.

“Cat Art Show” — a free event that runs from Jan. 25 to Feb. 2 at the gallery 101/exhibit on Santa Monica Boulevard — is expected to feature a little over 100 works for sale by 78 artists and donate some of the proceeds to the Stray Cat Alliance of Los Angeles.

Slice It Up

Some of my earliest inspiration in art and design comes from Punk and Post-Punk album art as well as the do-it-yourself ethos of the movements themselves.  I love that Punk was not about virtuosity, but ingenuity, creativity, attitude, and fearlessness. If you don’t like it, rip it up, or slice it up, and start over. Malcolm McLaren once told me “be prolific, not precious”… words to live by.

OBEY in Málaga

In November of 2013, The Obey crew traveled to Málaga, Spain where we painted a 7 story mural next to the Comtemporary Art Center. D*Face and his boys came through as well to paint the other 7 story wall on an adjacent tower of the building. After completion of the mural the crew was able to hit some street spots, soak up the sights and sticker desirable surfaces. Big thank you to Fer and his Dad, Fernando and everyone from The CAC Málaga and the to the people of Málaga.

My friend BNE just sent me this great photo from Seoul! I’m glad to see that my concepts and mischief that many said were going nowhere have now made it to places even I would never have imagined! I’m grateful to have the opportunities to push my work forward.
