"The Remembering Tree" by Nathan Spoor

ns_rememtree_hires_thumb_400x536.jpg
It's been far too long since I have checked to see any new prints from this artist, and there are two since the last time I featured Nathan. I really liked the idea of some elaborate treehouse, with a train and everything. The print is signed and numbered, in an edition of only 25. The print is 22" x 17" with an image area of 17" x 13". Get It Here.

"Portrait of the artist Paul Booth" by Shawn Barber

barber_booth_thumb_400x443.jpg
No more than a few days ago, Bay Area artist Shawn Barber unveiled new works in the "Anathema" two person show at the Last Rites Gallery in New York. The pieces in that show are Shawn's first collection of erotic paintings. Previously, we saw Shawn working on his tattooed portrait series, and for those of us who were itching to take some of it home, he has some new prints and a book, "Forever and Ever." The print featured above is exclusive to Last Rites, and happens to be of Paul Booth, tattoo artist, painter and owner of the gallery. The print is a signed and numbered giclee on canvas print, in an edition of 75. There is also a really great print of a painting Shawn did of Last Rites Director Genevive Zacconi. Get It Here.

"Clown of Doom" by Chet Zar

clown_of_doom_chetzar_thumb_400x468.jpg
Last month, the Corey Helford Gallery had a group show dedicated to Clowns, as creepy as they may be to some people. One of my favorite works from the show was the piece this print was made from. I was hoping Chet was planning on turning his Clown of Doom into a print and as luck would have it, he did. This is a special collectors edition print, so the size is bigger than his other prints. It's is 17" x 22" on velvet art paper, signed and numbered in an edition of 100. The print isn't framed, but I think it would be a good idea to get a frame that looked as good as the one Chet used. Get It Here.

"Two Sisters" by Audrey Kawasaki

twosisfly_thumb_400x456.jpg
For a while now it has been extremely hard for fans to get a hold of a print by Audrey. So in the last few weeks she had a poll, and has decided to release a "timed" print this Friday. There will be two versions of this print, a 26" x 30" editon that comes framed and is limited to 75. Then a 14" x 18" version that will be sold from 12-1pm, which means if you order the print at that time you are pretty much guaranteed to get it. So if you've been waiting for a print of hers, now itsthe time to do it. Watch the "Shop" area of her website this coming December 5th at noon. Get It Here.

"Vox Clammantis in Deserto" by Calma

vox_clammantis_72dpi1_thumb_400x552.jpg


Stephan Doitschinoff, otherwise known as "Calma," is a Brazilian street artist who is currently having a solo show at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. The name of this piece roughly translates into "Voice Calling into the Desert," and is a silkscreen print in a signed and numbered edition of 300. You have the opportunity to get the print framed or unframed. I like how this screenprint kind of has the feel of a block printing. Get It Here.

"The Devil's Knee" by Skot Olsen

the_devils_knee_thumb.jpg

The last time I featured a print by Skot it was after a fire at the Harold Golen Gallery that pretty much destroyed his whole show. But upon revisiting his website, I saw that he has some new work, and some new prints up. No fire is topping this guy. Of his featured prints, the one shown here is the one I dig the most. I love the way the man paints, and the stylized figures and that Boss Hog-looking outfit the Devil is wearing just floor me. The print is limited to 50, signed and numbered and is 19" x 24". Get It Here.

Derek Hess Giving Away Free Obama Poster with Purchase of His New Book

Posted By on Wed, Nov 12, 2008 at 2:29 PM

obamahess_thumb.jpg
Artist Derek Hess is best known for his striking, physical cover art for numerous punk and metal albums, but lately he's started infusing politics into his pictures. His new book, Please God Save Us, features lots of disturbing drawings, paintings, and collages that lambaste right-wing hypocrisy; in case you don't get the point from the artwork alone, writer/politician/"community organizer" Kent Smith adds essays that correspond with the art's themes of religion, war, environmental exploitation, and so on. Trust me, it's rad (i.e., "radical" in all meanings of the word). As if that weren't enough, Hess is also giving away copies of his limited edition Obama poster (as seen here) with every copy of Please God Save Us sold. That is, until the supply runs out. Visit Hess' website for info. — J. Graham

Joe Sorren "Astraea"

2008astraeaprint_thumb.jpg

For the rest of the week, Joe Sorren is having a sale at his online shop. This is one of those sales that is way too good to be true. Buy any one of his prints, and get another one for free. Once you head over and see the quality and price of his work, it will be quite clear how much of a great deal this is.

The piece shown here really caught my eye: the layout and feel kind of reminds me of "Venus of Urbino" by Titian. The print is 24" x 24" signed and numbered in an edition of 50.

  • 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.'"
