The Lowbrow Art Sale -- Glenn Barr, Eric Bailey & Mitch O'Connell

Posted By on Tue, Feb 12, 2008 at 8:00 AM

Glenn Barr "The Ruiners"


Glenn Barr is a favorite of mine, and one of his new prints from the masters at Pressure Printing is really exciting. No one makes them like Pressure Printing does. They take on one project and then really make it something special. This print is from a painting he had at a solo show at Billy Shire Fine Arts in 2006. You can see here that this painting was the inspiration for his "The Cyprian of Cyprus" painting at the Venus show last year. This print has a hand painted signature, is hand varnished and comes framed in an edition of 50. It's also a great size of 18.5" x 22.75".

Eric Bailey "Heavy"


An artist based in San Francisco, Eric Bailey has an impressive list of exhibitions and has done work for such clients as: Nike, Converse, Burton and many others. He has an amazing style of painting, loose, energetic and always colorful. This specific piece has a great layout and the color scheme while minimal is very dynamic. This print is 20" x 24" and is on watercolor paper.

Mitch O'Connell "Don't Answer The Phone"


Mitch O'Connell is an artist in Chicago who paints, makes tattoo flash, logos, graphic design, you name it. His paintings are what really stuck out for me though, the colors he uses are insane. This one is from his cult movie series, he has also has "I Spit on your grave", "I Eat your skin" & "Let's scare Jessica to death". Even though I'll probably get flack from those that love these movies, in some cases these paintings are way cooler than the movies that inspired them. This print is limited to 25.

Tyson McAdoo "Dayna Delux"


I'm a big fan of classy, pin-up style art, and Tyson McAdoo makes what he calls "classy and trashy". The woman are all tattooed and most likely popular alternative models, such as Dayna Delux whom inspired this piece. This is one of the few that doesn't have tattoos, because Dayna doesn't have any. He also has a book available filled with his pin-up art.

Nik Scarlett "Johnny Crash"


This extremely cool print is from a New Jersey illustrator, Nik Scarlett. He says that he has a "penchant for drawing various skulls, tough dudes and big haired ladies (with even bigger chests)". This print inspired of course by Johnny Cash, is part of his "Dead Legends" series. The others being Hellvis Presley & Hank Killed'ems. This really has to be one of the best Johnny Cash inspired pieces I have seen so far.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
