I am thrilled and honored to announce my participation in the group show Milestone #1 at CIRCUIT 12 CONTEMPORARY in Dallas, TX. The show will include an exciting and colorful blend of contemporary painting, drawing and sculpture from a terrific group of artists such as Ryan Travis Christian, Clark Goolsby, Jamie Treadwell, Josh Reames and others. The show opens this coming Saturday, April 6th and is not to be missed. Unfortunately I will not be in attendance, however you can see two of my new works for the show below!
I am excited to announce my participation in the upcoming exhibition PROJECT ONE WALLS at Project One Gallery here in SF.
PROJECT ONE WALLS
- FEB 7, 2013—JUL 1, 2013
Project One Gallery and Brooke Waterhouse are thrilled to introduce Project One Walls, an ongoing series of rotating murals from an eclectic array of artists. This exciting new project will commence with an opening reception on the evening of February 7, 2013. The inaugural exhibit curated by Brooke Waterhouse, Gallery Director of Project One Gallery, and Justin Giarla, founder & curator of San Francisco’s White Walls Gallery will feature murals by:
Ricardo Richey (Apex),
Rene Garcia Jr., and
Project One Walls offers a unique opportunity to promote and support some of our favorite artists and to invigorate the local art community by gathering a number of artists into a single gallery space. Project One Walls will be open for public viewing on Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 AM – 5 PM, with extended hours on some evenings.
Future exhibits will be organized by Director Brooke Waterhouse , Justin Giarla of White Walls, as well as curators and gallery directors from around the world.
About the Artists:
René Garcia, Jr. has been a resident artist with Project One Gallery since its inception. He considers it “a unique privilege” to have grown alongside Project One, which he describes as “a meeting hall for a growing arts community”. His glitter pieces have recently delighted viewers at Aqua Art Miami. For Project One Walls, he will reimagine traditional wallpaper by reconstructing two or three color floral motifs as customized red and blue anaglyphs, which reveal erotic and sensual imagery when viewed through 3D glasses.
London-based street artist Ben Eine, who began by tagging walls and painting trains as a teenager, crossed over into street art in the early 2000s. He has brightened walls all over San Francisco and throughout the world, with his easily recognizable stenciled letterforms.
Casey Gray, a Bay Area native and San Francisco-based artist whose work has been featured locally, nationally, and internationally, works primarily with spray paint and hand drawn stencil techniques. He will be installing a vividly colorful mural depicting various vases and other vessels intended to serve as metaphors for bodies, representing the diversity of our outer appearance and the secrecy of that which is contained within, prompting a sense of introspection.
Ricardo Richey, known to the graffiti world as Apex, has been a fixture within San Francisco’s street art community for many years, collaborating with graffiti and street art legends and mentoring younger artists, both in galleries and on the streets. Richey’s contribution to Project One Walls will expand on his exploration of abstract letterforms while playing off the architecture of the gallery space, inviting viewers to feel as though they have stepped into the painting itself.
Jet Martinez is a Mexican-born, San Francisco-based muralist and painter whose vibrant and detailed murals can be spotted in neighborhoods across San Francisco, throughout the bay & all over the country. Drawing inspiration from Mexican folk arts his wall will depict a reinterpretation of Oaxacan embroidery patterns, with large floral patterning in bold colors filling the entirety of the space.
Nick Flatt, a realist painter and sculptor notable for his provocative, hyper-realistic large-format portraits, came to San Francisco from Dallas, Texas and was featured in a solo exhibit at Project One last year. His piece for this exhibit, a commodified, mass-manufactured interpretation of an idealized woman, is entitled “In Ford we Trust”, a nod to Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.

I am very excited to be featured in the latest issue of NEW AMERICAN PAINTINGS, #103. Unfortunately online sales of the book are sold out, however you should be able to pick up a copy at your local B&N or other major bookseller for the next month.
I am pleased to announce that I will be exhibiting a selection of new works with White Walls Gallery at the SCOPE MIAMI Art Fair 2012. Unfortunately I will not be attending this year however.

If you are in the Baltimore, MD area this Saturday, Sept. 22nd, be sure and swing by. It is sure to be one incredible show. Scroll down for show info and preview of my piece.
Curated by Matthew Craven
September 22 – October 26
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 22, 7- 10pm
This exhibition brings together over 60 artists using a wide range of techniques and imagery within the field of drawing, painting, collage and sculpture to create a singular artistic vision. BLACK FOLIAGE takes its name from the contemporary psych rock band Olivia Tremor Control’s 1999 album Black Foliage: Animation Music Vol. One. Like the album, this exhibition combines pop and experimental aesthetics into something eccentric and cohesive.
The combined efforts from these artists will create something akin to a psychedelic zen garden.
*Black Foliage, originally took place on a much smaller scale at Chinatown Arcade, A DIY pop up art space and formerly a cell phone dispensary within the alley at 48 Bowery in New York City on July 22nd 2012.
