Stargaze.  Find hope.

About Buffalo Vision:

Perfect Stride:

Perfect Stride is a first person skateboarding game exploring a surreal world of 90′s computer graphics through graceful mouse motions & time manipulation. Coming some time soon for PC, MAC, & iOS.

Post It Show 9

The exhibition and sale continues into year 9. The artist list grew as did the quantity of Post It Art and the comment I’ve heard more than once is that the show is better than ever. It’s the same process every year of inviting folks, then finding a way to hang the 2600+ pieces, and then administering the folks who visit. This year, 100 people were in line when the door opened at 6pm. It was another great evening of artist friends and more passing through.

This photo has a lot of great pieces.

Much of the night looked like this. We let in the rest of the crowd at around 9:15pm.

Jungle Gym of My Mind – Mari Inukai Exhibition

Mari Inukai’s exhibition, Jungle Gym of My Mind opened last night at Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City. I’ve known Mari for years and I’m qualified to say that the subjects of her art progresses with her life. There are dark and light moments and a consistent subject is her daughter Sena. Seeing an image of Mari clothed and sitting in a bathtub is striking. When does one sit in a bathtub clothed? The spectacle piece and perhaps the largest is a portrait of Sena in Japanese traditional attire. She’s posed in the center and is a huge piece of Mari’s life. At times, their relationship seems like they are the best of friends and sometimes, Sena jumps into the mother role. The drawings are simple and refined. The graphite line work tell stories. Female nudes? Yes, she paints them classy. Here are more photos.

Paper Noise

Rob Sato and Ryohei Tanaka

November 9 – December 4, 2013

Reception: Saturday, November 9, 6:30 – 10 PM

Giant Robot is proud to present Paper Noise, an art show featuring new works by Rob Sato and Ryohei Tanaka.

Rob Sato and Ryohei Tanaka were once roommates in the infamous “Art’s Crab Shack Apartment” during the late 90s in Oakland, California where they attended the California College of the Arts. They’ve remained friends since. Rob Sato often exhibits with Giant Robot and his work has continued to progress from wild and deranged imagery to a more controlled abstraction. Sato paints with watercolors and succinctly tells a story that’s steeped in historical references. Ryohei Tanaka “paints with scissors” and paper cuts his works. He’ll be exhibiting over 100 paper cuts often depicting beasts and are often bilaterally symmetrical. He’ll also be cutting paper live.
