San and Escif have each just release two prints through Upperplayground to coincide with their show at Fifty24SF. I know it’s not the most complex artwork every made, but I can’t help but laugh my ass off when I look at Escif’s Macarena print. Well done. You can view/buy the two San prints here and here, and the Escif prints here and here. They are all screenprints, editions of 50, 18 x 24 inches and priced at $175.
Stolenspace Gallery‘s summer group show opens next week, on July 7th. All the work in this show, prints and originals, will be new. The artist lineup includes D*face, Dan Witz, Eine, Miss Van, Ripo, San, Shepard Fairey, Word To Mother and a number of others. Check out the full artist list on Stolenspace’s website. Here’s a great little piece from Dan Witz that will be there:
The show runs from the 7th of July (opening from 6-9pm) through July 31st.
Escif and San are traveling around the West coast in before for their upcoming show at Fifty24SF. The show, See You In Croatan, opens on June 30th. The Citrus Report has all the info. Until the opening, the two Spanish artists are driving around the West coast checking out the USA and doing some painting. Here is some of what they’ve been up to…
If you’ll notice that there were a good number of posts on Vandalog this week, you’ll notice the opposite thing next week. With family in town visiting and moving in with some friends and starting the couch-hopping segment of my summer in just a few days, things are rather busy. And so is the art world. Here’s what I have been reading this week:
Everyone’s talking about this Shepard Fairey thing, but frankly I don’t really care. Dude was being hassled and got a bit irritated and snapped. We all do it. Oh and didn’t everyone know that he has assistants to put up his street work?
Some friends came over today and we had a bit of a photoshoot for the upcoming line of Vandalog t-shirts. More about that in the next few days. Here’s a teaser of the shirts. So next week is going to be an exciting one on Vandalog. In the mean time, here’s what I wish I’d spent more time covering (it’s kind of Swoon and Retna heavy this week though):
This, I may actually write about again before the show opens and I’ll certainly be mentioning it after the opening: Street/Studio 2.0 at Irvine Contemporary in DC. It’s a group show in two venues with artists including Swoon, David Ellis, Gaia and José Parlá. The show opens on November 6th.
San, one of the many talented artists that I don’t write enough about, has put together quite a festival in Miajadas, Spain with Insitu. Herbert Baglione (though not my personal favorite, I can see why people love him), Escif, Sam3 and of course San himself will all be involved. I’ll be keeping an eye on the festival’s blog to see what everybody paints.
