Our good friends over at POKETO are launching a new era in their history... a gallery space within their new studios in downtown Los Angeles! This is the inaugural exhibit in their new home and it features print editions from some amazing artists from all over the world. Mine is the paper & tape collage to the left of this text. Edition of 100 available only through POKETO.

GRSF : SATURDAY MARCH 15, 6:30-10PM
I've also got work at Giant Robot SF in a show called "At The Movies" which opens the same night as the GR2 LA show! Anyway, the work for GRSF is for a film inspired exhibit... the work for this show is supposed to be based off a pivotal scene in a film, I chose my favorite film of all time... The Royal Tenenbaums. I made two freestanding figures of Richie Tenenbaum from the amazing scene with the Elliot Smith song "Needle In The Hay" playing when he shaves his beard and says "tomorrow I'm going to kill myself" and then attempts suicide. The figures are the before and after of the beard shaving...

I've got a piece at GR2 in LA for the "Year Of The Rat" show... the opening is Saturday March 15... the show is work based on the Chinese calendar and this year being the year of the rat. A vermin infested show for sure...

I've got some work in a show opening this Saturday in Long Beach, California at DDR Projects. The show is called "Visually Remastered" and artists were given the task of getting a painting from a thrift store and reworking it... I got this oil painting of a car and made a collage and cut and sewed it back together.
