On July 8th, Distinction Gallery in Escondido, California will be opening a solo show by Andreas England entitled Superlife Uncut. On view will be the Swedish artist’s signature humerous portraiture of an aging superhero and the details of his everyday mundane life. Timed to be on display during the San Diego Comic-Con, the exhibition will be perfect subject matter for fans to make the trek up north to catch a glimpse of England’s paintings. Discuss Andrew England here.

As we continue our coverage of this year’s Baby Tattooville, we turn our attention to Michael Hussar’s Wunderland, which was a feature for the art retreat for the fourth straight year (see 2011). Those familiar with Hussar’s two night event quickly settled in while newcomers casually perused. As in the past, all of the action took place in Hussar’s suite. Models posed as muses deep into the night for Hussar and other artists to draw. Discuss Baby Tattoville here.
For the third straight year (see 2010), one of the featured artists, Michael Hussar, hosted the strictly adult-oriented portion of Baby Tattooville – Wunderland. As before, all of the action took place in Hussar’s suite where in the main room, models posed on a large bed as muses for Hussar & other artist’s drawings and for impromptu photo sessions (see above with Ron English). The fun also continued in the second room where attendees and artists mingled. Some were able to meet for the first […]
As per tradition, each year’s Baby Tattooville is associated with a show at the neighboring Riverside Art Museum. This year’s exhibition (October 8th, 8-10pm), in celebration of the 5th anniversary of the event, includes work from every artist that has ever been associated with the art retreat (with just a couple exceptions), so in other words, it will include a staggering amount of quality work from many of your favorite artists lent from various collections. Take a look at all the artist’s names included in […]
Circus Punk customs are a new addition to Baby Tattooville. 50 blank pieces were available for attending artists to paint and work on. Once finished, these customs will be arranged in rows and BT attendees will have the chance to compete for them. Similar to what is done at fairs, attendees will get to throw at these and try to knock them down. Each person will then get to keep the custom that he or she strikes. More photos by Carlos Gonzalez after the jump.
Baby Tattooville’s Art Jam is easily the most recognized event of this special weekend and has existed since Baby Tattooville’s very first year (see 2010, 2009, 2008). As always, artists in attendance are given the freedom to contribute to the large collaboration piece at anytime during the weekend up until the deadline on Saturday night. Upon completion of the painting Saturday night, the work is used to produce prints overnight that attendees will receive Sunday morning. See photos by Carlos Gonzalez of the early stages […]
