Continuing their ongoing art program, Urban Forms Gallery in Lodz, Poland recently invited in Nunca to add his mark on the city. Traveling a long way from his native Brazil, the street artist painted some tribal figures peaking through the foliage, rendered with his signature crosshatching strokes. If you take a close look, you can see him taking advantage of the architectural cues by incorporating a window into his mural. Photo credit: Michal Biezynski. Discuss Nunca here.]]>

Showing: Deiana, Khoury, Lux & Reed for Fertile Ground @ Oakland Museum of California http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/showing-deiana-khoury-lux-reed-for-fertile-ground-oakland-museum-of-california/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/showing-deiana-khoury-lux-reed-for-fertile-ground-oakland-museum-of-california/#comments Tue, 28 Oct 2014 15:30:10 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=263992 fertile_ground09

The Oakland Museum of California is currently showing Fertile Ground: Art and Community in California, which is an exhibition focused on the "histories and social forces that changed the face of art in—and beyond—the Golden State." The show includes early influnces by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in San Francisco in the 1930s, all the way to the vibrant new Mission scene from the 1990s through the present, including Barry McGee, Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, and Amy Franceschini. The outdoor installations are organized by artist Ruby Neri, and they feature an emerging generation of artists in the area making vital work today. The installations combine works by Francesco Deiana, Sahar Khoury, Chris Lux, and Willy Reed, several of whom have works in the Mission scene section of the show. While different in their visual language and mediums used, this installation shows the strong spirit of collaboration and informality that these artists are known for. From Deiana's ballpoint pen ink drawings on geo objects to Khoury's paper-mache sculptures, this particular installation is focused on the accomplishment of a group rather than individual artists.

Recently in Rovereto, a city in Northern Italy, Ericailcane and Bastardilla painted two walls that both featured their artistic takes on bicycling. Working in his home county, Ericailcane created a mural with his signature illustrative style starring a bear with an alternative mode of transportation strapped to its back while the invited guest from Colombia, Bastardilla, painted a pair of riders seen from a different perspective. Both artists spent several days with rollers & brushes with long extensions to each leave their distinctive mark on the city. Discuss Ericailcane here.]]>
