Jonathan Viner "Conduit of Dialogue"

I showed a Viner print just a few weeks ago, and now he has two more that he has added to his online store. If your as big of a fan of his work as I am, it will be quite hard to pass up getting at least one of these new prints. Both of these prints are from paintings that were shown at his solo show “Target Practice”, which took place last January at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. The one shown is my favorite from the two, I love the colors that are used. This print is limited to 50 and is 16" x 24".

Naoto Hattori "Fertility"

This amazing surrealist artist has come back with four new prints, each one of them is printed on blotter paper. So of course you will see some perforations throughout the lithograph print. Each print is limited to 150. I think printing his work on blotter paper was a great idea, not every artist has work that would fit that paper but Naoto's work fits perfectly.

Scott Belcastro "As Blue As My Soul Will Go"

A self trained artist out of New York, Scott has a very cool style. Kind of moody, something that would really fit some mellow indie music. I actually think his style would fit quite well in a show with Andy Kehoe, but maybe thats just me. This print is available from Paper Tiger, and is on Somerset Velvet Paper and is limited to only 25.

Jacqueline Gallagher "A Well Trimmed Bush"

An artist out of Hawaii, I first saw her work in DeviantArt and then later on I saw that she was seen as Reader Art on the Juxtapoz webpage. She has a really amazing style, the colors she uses for skin tones, and the way she puts things together is great. I really believe her work will be very wanted soon if it is not already getting crazy. The original piece that this print was made from was 4' x 5', imagine having that big ol painting in your house? Keep your eye on this artist.

Mark Bodnar "The Mentalist"

I have always been a big fans of screen prints, as well as pressure prints. Letter Pressed and their "Artists Series" prints look amazing. A new one is being released for Mark Bodnar. I showed some prints from him almost a year ago. The print will go on sale sometime next week, and will be limited to 75. These prints tend to sell out fast, so bookmark the sale page and keep your eyes open.

  • 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.'"
