Eddie Colla & Bask’s “Nothin Nice” @ 1AM Gallery
In their return to First Amendment Gallery (1AM) this summer, Eddie Colla & Bask’s “Nothin Nice” generates a visual dialogue into the twilight zone that is our contemporary popular culture and political climate. The work is both technical and physical, masterful in a controlled chaos. Embodying the First Amendment in its truest form, the artists aim to activate the urban dweller’s passive participation in the everyday commercialization of public spaces.July 18, 2016

Dave Kinsey "The Modern Condition" @ FFDG, San Francisco
"The most difficult thing about creating a painting is going through the process of finding a connection in what I see and feel in the world around me, while also seeking a visual harmony between the beauty and chaos of the human." So says Dave Kinsey, as he prepares his newest solo show, "The Modern Condition," at FFDG in San Francisco on August 14, 2015. The show will be his third solo at the gallery, and featuring nine works on canvas composed of acrylic and collage.August 12, 2015
“Incision” A Film by Vhils
We are all products of the chaos that surrounds us,” says Portuguese street artist Alexandre Farto – aka Vhils – in André Santos’s film, which documents the indigenous village of Araçaí, Brazil, where 90 Guaraní people were moved by the government at the turn of this century, displacing them from their ancestral lands. Immortalizing these forgotten people, Farto carves their portraits onto buildings and the doors of their homes – mixing indigenous and new techniques – giving them the voice and dignity they have been denied.June 05, 2015
