We know many of you are looking forward to attending the opening but here is a little taste of what to expect. Flores sent us a description of some of his creative process to share with our readers: “This painting was done in steps. First the sky – a layer of clouds with acrylic, then colored and blended with a misting of spray paint. I like […]
Ana Bagayan’s latest show: “Orphan” is set to open Saturday at the renowned Billy Shire Fine Arts. We’ve been keeping tabs on the fabulous Ana and her superfine works.Â Ana has been working non-stop since we last saw her at Baby Tattooville to get ready for this show and thankfully she worked in some time to do a “creative process” on her latest work “Promethius“. This gorgeous 12″ x 23” oil on wood made it’s debut at Copro Nason’s “Superschool” group show this past weekend (covered). […]

An artist you will be hearing more of in the future, Eric Fortune, has sent us some progression images of his latest piece “A Want To Believe.” Eric has a career in illustration but seems to be making a transition into the gallery scene with shows coming up at Ad Hoc Gallery, Cerasoli-LeBasse, and Roq La Rue. We love his elegant composition, delicate poses, and rendered lighting that seem to make his paintings glow. This will be the first of a series of “creative process” […]
Josh Keyes recently posted up some miscellaneous photos relating to his current show at OKOK gallery in his forum. It’s always interesting to learn about the inspirations, ideas, and creative processes of an artist.Â For example, look how he incorporated a local mailbox (graffiti and all) into his “Totem IV” painting.Â As most of you know, he used a lot of northwest Native American imagery for this show.Â So, notice how he placed the logo for the American Indian Movement on mailbox as well (there […]
Last night, Shepard Fairey premiered his newest image for Barack Obama entitled “VOTE”. How fitting that he unveiled this new image in the nation’s capital. Adding to his already iconic creations of Obama: Progress, Hope, and Change, Shepard stated that he wanted this piece to convey the energy and attitude of Obama in contrast to his opponent. No word yet on whether or not he will make this into a print, but we will keep you in the loop. After the first night of “legitimate” […]
