Openings: Ericailcane – “We Were Living in the Woods” @ Fifty24SF

Better known for large scale outdoor murals typically depicting playful and sometimes sinister looking animals, Italy-based artist Ericailcane brought his artwork indoors with the opening of his show “We Were Living In the Woods” at Fifty24SF. The show featured a wide arrange of ink drawings (some watercolored), etchings, screenprints (some handpainted), a few copies of his book “Il Numbero Delle Bestie”, and a few sculptures to grace the window display. As shown in our preview of the show (here), he painted a new piece for […]

Setup: Erica Il Cane – “We Were Living In The Woods” @ Fifty24SF

It looks like Erica Il Cane has started to transform the Fifty24SF space into a personal playground for his whimsical characters with paintings as well as murals inside and outside of the gallery. Rhinomilk (AM:SF) visited the Italian street artist and took some pics of the setup for you to peruse ahead of the opening of his show “We Were Living In The Woods” (previewed) tomorrow night.

Live painting with Will Barras x Ericailcane x DEM for Original Cultures

StolenSpace held a pretty special closing party this week for the Original Cultures show, the opening of which we attended a couple of weeks back. Will Barras, DEM and Ericailcane took to the icy cold streets of London for an outdoor painting event to conclude the gallery show. We were also privileged to go along to fellow Original Cultures collaborator Hiraki Sawa’s studio earlier in the day to take a look at the artists (helped by Allesandro Micheli) hand-finishing a small number of the collaborative prints […]

Openings: Ericailcane / Will Barras / DEM – “Original Cultures” @ StolenSpace

StolenSpace’s official start to 2010 has arrived in the shape of “Original Culture” featuring an Anglo-Italian line up of Ericailcane, DEM and Will Barras. Will Barras was at the opening this Thursday night, and his element of the show consisted of a series of stunning and poignant works painted in situ. Will told us that the paintings were inspired by news he heard on the radio of the author Terry Pratchett, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, who had proclaimed that he would end his own life […]

Video: Will Barras, Ericailcane, DEM – Stay Away from Light

In a continuing effort to increase European-Japanese artistic relations, the non-profit modern performing art organization, Original Cultures, has just released their latest project starring visual artists Will Barras (UK), Ericailcane (IT) and DEM (IT), as well as musical artists Om Unit (UK), Tatsuki (JP) and Tayone (IT). Over the course of four days last June in Bologna, these six artists collaborated, albeit separately, on the visual and musical aspects of this video. After the four days, the video was unveiled with live musical accompaniment. Expect […]

FAME Festival – A Tour Through the Monastery

After months of following the goings on at Italy’s FAME Fest (see our coverage here), AM decided to take a trip to Grottaglie to find out if all those pieces were really as incredible as they appeared. Let’s just say that we were far from disappointed. From the murals painted within the ancient monastery and on the walls around town to the fantastic private preview dinner and packed opening night reception showcasing work from all the artists, FAME is every street art fan’s dream come true. […]

FAME Festival: JR, Judith Supine, Ericailcane, Sam3

Things have been busy over at FAME Festival since we last gave a report (see our coverage here). Ericailcane has finished up a new mural, Judith Supine has put up his first piece, and JR and Sam3 have created some fantastic new prints (see JR’s above). Fans of the French artist may recall the original piece from the “Self Portraits” show at Circle Culture (previewed and covered). Take a look at the new work from Judith, Ericailcane and Sam3 after the jump.

FAME Festival: Ericailcane and Word to Mother (Part II)

We recently brought you news of Ericailcane (here) and Word to Mother (here) painting murals at FAME Festival (full coverage here). The artists have since stepped into the studio to create a fantastic selection of artwork. We are loving these little ceramic sculptures by Ericailcane (above). For everyone who gets excited when Erica’s anthropomorphic creatures leap into the three-dimensional, now is the time to start jumping up and down, as there look to be quite a few little monkeys running around Grottaglie. Word To Mother […]

FAME Festival: Ericailcane

Ericailcane, one of the stars of last year’s event, has returned to FAME Festival (our coverage here). This newly finished mural is very touching and is an interesting continuation of Blu’s statement about the pollution that has devastated Grottaglie in recent years. As director Angelo Milano informed AM, one of the festival’s primary goals is “to attract attention to some very filthy moves by the town politicians, who have installed a huge (and constantly growing) special wastes dump on our territory. Trash is coming all the way […]

Openings: Ericailcane @ Carmichael Gallery

AM was in attendance Saturday night for the opening of Italian street artist Ericailcane’s first Los Angeles solo show entitled “Man is the Bastard” (previewed) at Carmichael Gallery. The highlights of the show were the massive installation pieces that covered both of the gallery’s front walls, ominously greeting attendees with a taste of the absurd scenarios found in the rest of the work on display. Ericailcane’s intricate drawings and etchings, presented in a dream-like style reminiscent of childhood storybooks and fairytales, features clever imagery of […]
