Usually when an artist uses digital or collage to describe their art they’re already at a disadvantage in gaining access to my hallowed “I like your art! club.” One way to overcome this is with whimsy and simultaneous boldness and subtlety. Look for a deeper message. Or not.

I’ve had a crush on Maya Hayuk for a long time. It first started when I discovered her art through Barnstormers. For the longest time I had no idea what she even looked like but I didn’t need to cuz her work did something to me and made me a giggling little school boy. It’s been years and she continues to gift the world continuously with pieces of her explosive self, big and small (murals on barns to record covers for Savath & Savalas).

I was super stoked to see the awesome folks at Cinders Gallery make her the artist of the month and do an interview with her. They’ve done a tremendous job of giving support/exposure to true artists like Maya and others of her ilk.

June 21st is Go Skateboarding Day. No matter where you are, grab your board and go. But if you’re in nyc it’s definitely an amazing experience to skate with so many thousands. This is definitely the year’s best holiday. Check the site to see what’s going on near you.
Also in collaboration with Go Skateboarding Day Klughaus gallery is doing a pop up shop. I’m really sad to miss this one especially since there’s going to be a bunch of dope art/graffiti zines only sold there. Check out their site for all the brands and artists participating.
