Back in the Club Days

Here are some pictures from my solo show I had over the summer at the Wynwood Exhibition Center. The canvas's that were shown were paintings I created in nightclubs right after I moved back to Miami from attending college at the Maryland Institute, College of Art.

 

I did the paintings with no intention of exhibiting them anytime soon. Since I thought the work would make more sense in the long term. But, I got to show them and I got mixed feelings which is what I was expecting. I was a little nervious to show them since it is not my current direction and people often misunderstand the context of where can artist can go. I, for one explore an area and let it go - then move on to the next journey.

LAST SUMMER

BACK IN THE CLUB DAY'S EXHIBIT

Indian Movie Posters - Amazing

KAYLEIGH RYLEY'S INDIAN FILM POSTER COLLECTION

My friend Kayleigh loves Indian movie posters, the vintage Mumbai movie posters and the present low-budget Kannada movie posters are a fascinating contrast to her. She has been picking up these pieces from Mumbai and Bangalore, India.

 

A few weeks ago I went over to her place after she returned from India and she showed all of these to me. It was amazing and I had no idea how beautiful these could actually be in person. She nice enough to gave me one as a gift, but I am one of the lucky few. But, there's good news; she is selling them!

 

Please enjoy! If you would like to learn more on how to get your own make sure to contact her! Be sure to check out Kayleigh's article on Felt&Wire

Jackets with some life.

Posted 2011-03-08 15:41:43 | Views: 9,130

Saw these jackets, thought they were pretty cool. I should paint some of my own? I was rocking the North Face jacket all winter long. Even though I loved it. It really did keep me warm. I need a little diversity in my wear and tare though. I started to feel like a cross country trucker always with teh same jacket. I believe next winter I will seriously invest in some far out warm wear, without a doubt. Now, I'm not sure I could actually wear these funky things. I just know I'll be ready next fall stylisticly. With that said, I seriously could use some shorts. I can't wait for summer.

YOU AIN'T JACK-ET

Men's Magazine Adventure, Pulp books.

men's adventure magazine, the book. great.

Men's Adventure Magazine is a book that was put out by Taschen. It's really interesting and has all these illustrations in these crazy pulp books. Most of them dealing with sex and far away places during war time. I highly recommend this book to anyone that's into vintage illustation. Go out to your nearest book store and pick it up today. It's a real treat.
