After sharing with you the first batch of murals for this year’s Forest For The Trees, here is now a look at some of the more recently finished walls for the event. Organizers Gage Hamilton and Matt Wagner of Hellion Gallery put together a strong roster for 2015 and these latest photos feature work from Andrew Hem (seen above), Gage Hamilton himself, Michael Reader, Michael Salter, as well as a collaboration between INSA & Zach Johnson on a “giffiti.” Check out some more photos below and see if you can locate them […]
With most of the Forest For The Trees murals finished, now’s the time to do the first part of our recap of this year’s event (also see 2013, 2014). The name of the mural festival comes from the phrase “they can’t see the forest for the trees” which signifies the inability to understand the greater picture when you’re too focused solely on what’s in front of you. Organizers Gage Hamilton and Matt Wagner of Hellion Gallery hope that the art will draw Portland’s residents away from their daily routine. Enjoy some photos […]
You may recall our previous coverage of the annual Forest For The Trees mural festival in Portland (see 2013, 2014). This year’s edition is well underway now and includes a lineup of Josh Keyes (seen here working what looks like a larger version of his The Collector painting), Andrew Hem, Blaine Fontana, Insa, Joram Roukes, Low Bros, Rustam Qbic, and Troy Lovegates, just to name a few. If you are anywhere in the area, head over to show your support (locations here) or you can follow the progress […]
Last week, Josh Keyes (interviewed) returned to the Antler Gallery for a joint showing with Brin Levinson entitled Reclamation of Nowhere. Their imagery meshed nicely together with Keyes’ creatures interacting with what may be a post-apocalyptic urban landscape and Levinson working with the same nature versus man themes but with a different atmosphere. The show runs through the 26th of this month for those in Portland who want to stop by themselves for a look. Discuss Josh Keyes here.
On July 30th, Josh Keyes (interviewed) will be returning to the Antler Gallery in Portland for another showing (see 2014). If this glimpse into the new body of work is any indication, the locally-based artist has further refined his new aesthetic that takes his imagery all the way to the edge of the panels he paints on. This new 12 x 18″ piece is entitled Quake, and has us excited to see the fresh set of works when the exhibition opens. Discuss Josh Keyes here.
