Marxist Glue

Here’s some pics from the Marxist Glue show @ Hold Up Art in L.A. I can’t say enough good things about the artists in this show or about the staff at Hold Up Art. It was really one of the best experiences I’ve had as an atrist. There are still some limited edition prints available here

Eddie Colla x D young V

D Young V and myself did this collision piece on the front of Space gallery, on Polk street, a few weeks back. I suspect D and I will be doin more of this in the future. He’s solid,we get along and work well together. So keep your eyes out for more of this.

Lyrics Born Tour Poster

I’ve always been a big fan of LB, which is why I was totally down and excited to do the tour poster for auto-reverse 2010.  He’s a super talented and down to earth guy and a pleasure to work with. I retired from being a gun for hire a long time ago, if I put my name on anything now, it’s because I’m down with it, period.
and I’m down with this.

Traffic safety and philosophy are not mutually exclusive endeavors.

Death Of a Wall

I haven’t driven to SF as of late and it’s been quite some time since I exited at Fremont St.  Today I did, as a passenger, but just the same, I did. The Fremont street exit was unique in one very significant way. At the bottom of the ramp directly in front of you was a large concrete pillar and you were forced to turn left. However, the view of the pillar was unavoidable and moreover the flow of traffic was constant for a good part of the day. For a street artist it represented a almost perfect surface.

That said, it is no longer there. I believe it was a remnant of the old embarcadero freeway and had outlived it’s usefulness by a good 20 years. Finally it has been completely razed.

I wouldn’t consider myself a particularly sentimental person. People often pass through my life, their absence noted and clinically attributed to the nature or cycles of human interaction. The emotional equivalent of a shrug.  Something about that wall not being there anymore, got me thinking…

About all the pieces I’d put there, and the people I was with, and the passing of time. It was one of the first spots I ever got up on. It was exactly 52 inches wide. That pillar was in books and newspapers during the Obama campaign. I had pieces that ran for 2 or 3 months on there. I have new pieces that were planned for that spot.

That’s life though. You find your little places in the world, that are your’s and that make sense. That pillar was one of those places.

A decade with no name

fiftyseven-thirtythree and the East Bay Express are Proud to present 2 Major Art exhibits at this year’s “Best of the East Bay” Party. “A Decade will no name”, Bay area art from the first 10 years of a new century, and “If these walls could Talk” Live Aerosol art.

As the aughts come to a close and we approach the dawn of a new decade we are collectively faced yet again with a challenge we may have not even completed these last ten years. As the scope, breadth and reach of technology and information expand at exponential proportions with every passing day, their affects on one of the country’s most ethnically and culturally diverse areas cannot go unnoticed… especially amongst the state’s highest percentage of people per capita who list their occupation as “artist”.

A multi-disciplinary look into the works currently being created in our collective backyard, “The Decade With No Name” serves as a celebration of the sculptors, painters, photographers and street artists who call Oakland, Berkeley and the greater East Bay their home.

From the the three-dimensional monstrous cake sculptures of Scott Hove, to Brett Amory’s figurative paintings, Amanda Lopez’ Dia de los Muertos photographs, the politically and socially inspired street art of Eddie Colla, Monica Canilao’s found object installations and Emory Douglas’ historical Black Panther graphic agitation, this showcase serves as a veritable who’s-who of the East Bay’s emerging and established artist community.

Join us during the East Bay Express’ “Best of the East Bay” party, Friday, August 6th as we celebrate the arts in Oakland’s historic Jack London Square. With a massive gallery space located right across from the concert’s main stage, as well as a sixty foot-long wall of live aerosol murals by Bay Area legends Chor Boogie, Apex and Eon75 occurring during the event, this is one party, and an art show, that you’re not going to want to miss.

Sunday Outing

I went out with Gaia, Hugh Leeman and David Young V a few weeks ago on a little sunday outing.  Ended up on Juxtapoz here, Hi fructose here and Brooklyn Streetart here.

Eddie x The New York Times

A while back I got interviewed for a piece in the New York Times. It made my mom proud.
