If you’re in Nyc this weekend you should definitely check out what promises to be a dope ass art/music pop-up show curated by No Agenda, Ad Hoc Art, and McCaig-Welles at The Highline Loft, 508 W. 26th Street. Some of my favs will be showing such as Dalek, Maya Hayuk, Cycle, John Breiner, Cern, Mike Giant, Indie 184, Dave Kinsey, Greg Lamarche (aka Sp One), Swoon, Thundercut, Morning Breath, and a grip more of talented mofo’s. There’ll also be a performance by “revolutionary sound/music/noise group,” Gray.
You can check out some more of the artwork at McCaig-Welles tumblr.
Spoke Art unleashes another beast today with Tim Doyle‘s follow up from last year, “Unreal Estate II.” As they put it he will “once again remap our collective consciousness through a whole new series of re-imagined iconic pop-culture locations.” In simple terms, he recreates iconic places of interest from the canon of some of the best fictional tv shows, from Twin Peaks to The Simpsons.
The irony here is double edged seeing as art in itself is inherently a fictionalized form of reality. In this sense “UnReal Estate” is a fictionalized account of fictional places. Double down on that when you throw in Arrested Development, the Bluth home wasn’t a real home either, it was just a model. Bam!
Forget all the babble though cuz it wouldn’t mean anything if the art looked like crap anyway. But it doesn’t. It’s pretty awesome. The opening is tonight at Spoke Art in San Francisco AND the first 100 people there get a special, not-for-sale print. Daaaaaamn.
If you’re in nyc today you gotta go down to KlugHaus Gallery (curated by Melissa McCaig-Welles and John Leo) in Chinatown and check this party out. Mike Giant is going to painting a mural, there’s going to be skating and a best trick competition. And a gang of dope artists.
And New York is lucky to get this party. King Brown Magazine is a high quality art zine/book coming straight outta Australia. Boooooom. Featured artists: Morning Breath, Mike Giant, Andy Jenkins, Greg Lamarche, Chris Cycle, Dave Kinsey, “Grotesk” aka Kimou Meyer, Stefan Marx, Kevin Lyons, Raza Uno aka Max Vogel, Zach Malfa-Kowalski, Steve Gourlay, Jay Howell, Ben Horton

Rafael Cerveglieri is 25 and used to wear funny t-shirts. He was born and still lives in São Paulo, the biggest city in Brazil. For some years now, he’s been working with stuff he loves: making comics and editorial illustration. He’s one of those boring guys who loves to talk about books, movies, comics and songs, and would love to talk about these things anywhere with anyone. Also, he lacks a haircut. If you’d like to waste some time talking to him or perhaps you have some work you’d like him to do, feel free to contact him by e-mail: rafael [dot] cerveglieri [at] gmail [dot] com.
He would be proud of it, and you can even eat some sandwich with him, but please don’t put tomato slices on it.
