My friend Pennylane is presenting a workshop intended for artists preparing to approach the commercial and public art industry. Its a 3 hour seminar that will cover a ton of career tips and insider info. Definitely worth the ticket if you wanna get serious!
“From director Roger Gastman comes the world premier of a documentary that tells the tale of wall writing’s beginning on the streets of New York and Philadelphia in the 1960s. Interviews with legends TAKI183, CORNBREAD, and scads more navigate through graffiti’s days of lurking in the shadows to gaining mainstream popularity. Drop: pencils. Wield: spray cans.”
I’m very pleased to announce my upcoming Pop up Art show with Ensoe, This Saturday Septemeber 15th in Vancouver BC.
Exhibition page @ Elliott Louis Gallery “A pop-up exhibition featuring two artists with a shared background in the art of graffiti and spray paint medium. The work is an exploration of the subtle nuances in composition, colour relationships, environments, and drawings derived from the practice of graffiti writing. Elements are isolated and deconstructed resulting in a broader cultural narrative through geometry and abstract painting. we hope to see you at the Waterfall building (1540 West 2nd Avenue) on Saturday, Sept.15th – Elliott Louis Gallery”
Really insightful short video about the artistry of title design in movies and TV. At 5:50 I had no idea filmmaker and designer Saul Bass had contributed so much to the world of film and design. Some great stuff there for sure.

An exploration of geometric abstraction inspired by the artists’ relationship to urban spaces and unfamiliar environments, curated by Ricky Lee Gordon and Shallom Johnson.
Chance Visitor brings together Andrzej Urbanski and Scott Sueme, two artists whose shared graffiti background has led each towards geometric abstraction via very different paths and processes. Beginning with meticulous digital sketches and executed with spray paint and tape, Urbanski’s work takes the form of sharp, clean edged shapes, flat, opaque blocks of color and a strict minimalism of form and composition. Sueme’s paintings develop organically, utilizing a variety of techniques and mediums; each hand painted shape or line placed in constant dialogue with the ones that came before.
So I’ve been traveling through Europe the last couple weeks and will be eventually headed to Cape town to produce some new paintings at the A Word Of Art Residency Program. More pics coming soon, and if you’ve been on my IG you already know the deal!
Upcoming group show at FUKAI gallery in Vancouver. ‘Design24 embraces the parallels between art and design/ designer and artist; paying respect to the duality
of commercial design work, its artists and culture.’
