Mona Lisa- live at budokan – Eddie Colla

So back in march Warholian.com teamed up with Project One to put on the Warhol Reimagined show. Artists got to choose a Warhol piece to reinterpret. I wanted Mao, but someone already got it. So, I took the Mona Lisa.

here’s my piece “live at budokan”

Eddie Colla @ Candybar SF

Back sometime in January, Tan from CandyBar asked if I’d be interested in doin some work on the walls. There were 2 fat walls, so rather then hang some work I thought it would be cool to just fill the whole space with 2 8ftx 8ft pasters. It will be up indefinitely. Go check and get some crazy good desserts . Thanks To Tan for the Walls and Ramon for puttin in work on the install.


Warhol Reimagined – The New Factory

Warhol Reimagined – The New Factory presented by Warholian.com and Project one gallery.

For Warhol Reimagined we’ve asked some of the best talent in the art world today to come forward and rework some of Warhol’s classic imagery.
Our featured artists were given 20″x 26″ panels, and we’re asked to pick from a selection of over 60 of Warhol’s works. The works were chosen based on their importance in Warhol’s history as an artist and overall representational aesthetic. The artists have been asked to reinterpert the Warhol image they have selected into their own style.
Andy Warhol is best known for his Campbell’s soup can works that were first displayed at Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles in 1962. These works now hang in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. We’ve chosen to recreate the MOMA display by utilizing the talents of 32 well known and emerging artists – each reimagining a different can in their own light.
Warhol Reimagined: The New Factory is curated by Warholian.com and this will be their first ever art show for the newly established arts brand. Warholian exposes the “New Artist Movement” genre emerging in Los Angeles, New York, and namely San Francisco.

The show is being presented by Project One, an art gallery and lounge in the Design District of San Francisco. Project One gallery features 1200 sq feet of open gallery space with 20 foot ceilings. The gallery represents local, national and international artists, and focuses on contemporary art from artists they love.

This show opens Thursday March 10th @ 7pm
Project one gallery is located at
251 Rhode Island
San Francisco, CA

Come by and see what promises to be one of the best shows of the season.

Pablo from thedirtfloor.com did a nice interview piece with me this week. Check it here:

California Homes Magazine

Mindy Ross’s amazing home was featured in California Homes Magazine this month. Mindy owns a few of my pieces and hence I was in California Homes Magazine. I always experience this kind of uncomfortable excitement when I end up in place where I seemingly don’t belong. The W hotel, The New York Times, California Homes Magazine…

It’s kinda like sneaking into the Academy awards through the service entrance.


Open to compromise

Last week I received a few emails regarding my Sarah Palin Posters. A few of you took issue with the fact that I had combined an image of Sarah Palin with text that I had written. Point well taken. To remedy this, and to show that I am open taking constructive criticism, I re-worked the original poster and used an actual quote from Palin. Below is the new version, which should put an end to any talk implying I haven’t been fair and balanced.
