New2 show on Graffuturism

Graffuturism is my favorite site for writing. It always has cutting edge work and the more challenging end of the spectrum on there. I'm am naturally stoked that my show was able to get a mention.

Graffuturism blog here
Be sure to look up their current group show at Soze gallery in LA. It has great work by Jurne, Doze, Greg Lamarche, Poesia and many others.

Opening Night: Zaya and New2 at White Walls and Shooting Gallery

Although I was mildly aware of Italian Futurism via learning about Constuctivism I hadn't made the connection to Futurism in my pieces. After having read more, my work has a lot of common ground, particularly philosophically.

"It emphasized and glorified themes associated with contemporary concepts of the future, including speed, technology, youth and violence, and objects such as the car, the airplane and the industrial city."

Although most contemporary approaches to science could be more holistic, and art critics have a definite use, I appreciate this, also taken from Wikipedia.

"They repudiated the cult of the past and all imitation, praised originality, "however daring, however violent", bore proudly "the smear of madness", dismissed art critics as useless, rebelled against harmony and good taste, swept away all the themes and subjects of all previous art, and gloried in science."

Flix of 'In one hand a ghost, the other an atom' at White Walls












We painted White Walls black and I spray painted the gallery with re-occuring motives I use in collages and on walls. This selection of photos cover a fair bit of the show.
If your in San Francisco please swing through, the details and depth of the collages are better seen in person than photo. If not, all the works can be seen here:

N. E. W. 2 x Borgerhout








The wall was painted for the city with the local kids in mind. A common denominator with the kids and the new circular construction on this street corner is football. So for the background I jammed on the idea of the mowing stripes from professional pitches and a folded out or flattened football. Like the Archimedean solids and other shapes in some of my other wall paintings, if you were to fold the footaball together it would create the correct object. I used circular shapes in both outlines and trivial pursuit pie type details. I tried to keep the colors bright and close to the neighbourhoods favorite teams colors. There is also a few other things I slipped in for my own amusement. I feel I could of maybe done more to it, cleaned it up a little, but it was my 4th completion of a piece in around a week coupled with nights in the studio and being concerned that I can't really afford to be away from the studio by day at the moment. Having said that, I think it's ok and am stoked to be afforded the opportunity.
