AM x REEBOK x BASQUIAT at RIME

21 Jun

After The Stairwell Project, my friend Sienide suggested I get involved with a project at Rime in BK. Reebok just came out with a new line of kicks dedicated to Basquiat and they were looking for artists to display works inspired by Jean-Michel. So I participated along with a few other artists and the community voted on their favorites for a chance to win a pair of the collabo Reeboks and a gift certificate at Rime in Cobble Hill. I won third place and was happy to go shopping after. It was a nice community event to support the store and connect with fellow artists.

Sienide, Eric Orr and myself outside of RIME.

In loving memory of SAMO.

ANDY KESSLER BENEFIT- 4.31.12

31 May

Hey all,

I’m honored to be part of this benefit tonight for a friend who passed away a few years ago. In the few years that I knew Kess, he was always supportive of my art. He often included me in the shows he put together and til this day I’m so thankful to him for that. So now a few years later, here I am supporting the foundation for a true leader who help mold the skate industry to what it is today. Please come check out the work and come support the cause.

Hey all,

I’m honored to be part of this group show on Friday- please come through and peep some amazing art. See ya there!

Lost & Found, our first show of 2012, explores the usage of found materials and how artists choose to reinterpret the world around them.  Featuring the artwork of five very different artists, Adam VoidAlice MizrachiCurtis Readel, ELLE &John Breiner, their work both compliments and juxtaposes, as they express themselves through a myriad of techniques and approaches centering around artwork created from found objects.

Lost & Found Opening Reception:

 Friday, January 13th

(show runs until February 5th)

6pm – 9pm

 111 Front Street, Suite 224

 (F Train to York Street, A/C Train to High Street)

Mighty Tanaka presents:

Lost & Found

Featuring the artwork of Adam Void, Alice Mizrachi, Curtis Readel, ELLE & John Briener

Look around you; the world is full of art.  We all know the saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, however, some individuals choose to take that phrase to heart.  Artists from a range of disciplines utilize a world of scattered debris, creating an array of striking creations from the items that many people would find worthless.  Mighty Tanaka is pleased to bring you our first show of 2012 entitled Lost & Found, a group show of found objects and the artwork that is created from them.  Featuring the vision of Adam VoidAlice MizrachiCurtis ReadelELLE & John Breiner, each artist represents a unique idea of the world through their chosen method of creation.

Lost & Found intends to demonstrate a cross-section of aesthetic interpretation of objects that are generally taken for granted in daily life.  Artwork made from found materials provides the artist with an endless amount of inspiration, as all the necessary components are easily accessible and free to use.  This is the art of the juxtaposition, both complimenting and conflicting itself, as the work is literally born from the streets and transformed into something that is new, exciting and fresh.

Through the usage of mediums such as old beat up currency, abandoned pieces of wood, detached doors and tattered textiles, the artist is able to rebuild forgotten memories and forge them into a new identity.  Lost & Found offers the viewer the opportunity to reconnect with the pieces of the past and the chance to begin anew.
