forest for the trees.

right now in portland, oregon a group of artists who go by the moniker forest for the trees are embarking on a super sick project putting up murals all over town.  this elite group of artists features the likes of mhak, blaine fontana, taka sudo and my super art crush sam rodriguez!  there are quite a few more and i think it will be a great addition to portland's rose murals around town.  

check out their instagram to see the project and get inspired, fools.

melt. young magic.

just an illusion.

the super talented carl cashman has his first solo show at breeze block gallery in portland, oregon up right now. a sold out solo show. how amazing is that? well, not very if you consider how fly his work is! very easy, very smart style and not pretentious.  so cool.  

kind of bumming that i missed the show now.

step and stand clear.

so about the neon works of patrick martinez.  he is way too tight.  really am loving what he's doing representing the west coast style of art in this form, as well as in his paintings.  he has got it going on!  damn. how can i get myself hooked up with some sweet neon signage?  everyone needs one in their life.
just like velvet paintings.

electric maps.

gloria petyarre is currently my jam.  these paintings are so faceted and electric that it will melt your brain.

seattle art museum has a permanent exhibit featuring african art, which includes yinka shonibare, gloria petyarre, al anatsui, among others.  what a great exhibit and what a great museum! if you haven't been and you live in the pacific nw, i highly recommend a road trip.

DAVIE.

 I am such a huge fan of the simplicity, tranquility and whimsy of the work she does. It's so effortless!  Her unique illustrations range from the delicate shapes of ships to the undulating lines of an octopus. Homegirl knows what she's doing.

The beautiful and talented Dianna Grobstein is the brains behind DAVIE and is based in Portland, Oregon. please check out her work and shop here. DAVIE will be having a couple shows in the next month or so, follow on twitter or facebook to get the latest.  XO
