SIGNED PRINT RELEASE: “Daenerys”  - by Sam Spratt

So I know I’ve been super bad about doing signed prints, I just really don’t like selling you stuff, so sorry about that. I partnered with 1xrun again (they handled Gilded) and did a *beautiful* job on the printing while also letting me keep it actually affordable. The edition is timed and will be up until September 16th. Ships internationally, they do an amazing job to avoid print damage even in those long treks, and the archival pigment print is on this thick ass 16” x 24” 310gsm Museum Natural Fine Art Paper which picks up the color, texture, and wooshiness really well. So share around, you can snag one at the link above or HERE and let me know if you have any questions about it that aren’t answered on the page. Thanks, all!

Twin Brazilian street artists Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, collectively known as Os Gêmeos (previously featured here), just completed this awesomely huge, vibrant and detailed piece covering six towering silos on Granville island in Vancouver, Canada for the Vancouver Biennale. These massive Giants are the brothers’ largest work to date.They spent three months painting the 75-foot-tall industrial towers in their distinctive colorful style, full of smaller hidden characters. A successful Indiegogo fundraising campaign helped the brothers cover the expenses needed to complete this non-profit public art project.

The twins spent the final days adding numerous details to their characters – pockets, stitches, buttons, shoes, fabric patterns, all by using lots of bright colors and by painting more and more signature yellow faces. Using the architecture of the silos, the giants are all kneeling with four of them facing one way, and the other two facing the other way, giving the finished work a full 360 degree identity.

Visit StreetArtNews and Arrested Motion for additional images of this amazing installation.

Happy 20th Anniversary to one of the greatest albums in any genre. I had just started 9th Grade, when this came out. My mind was blown by the level of his rhymes. Blown, kid. This got so much play, during High School. Not just me, but for a lot of us. It’s still as dope now, as it was then.

Curiot and Kelly Vivanco at Thinkspace Gallery.

Curiot will be presenting “The Moktulen Kingdom" in Thinkspace’s Project Room.  The show will feature his stylistically rich creatures that shine through their electric color palettes and feature themes from Curiot’s heritage of growing up in Mexico.

Kelly Vinvanco will be presenting “Peculiar Tides" in Thinkspace’s Main Gallery.  Kelly’s playful work takes on a childlike sense of adventure which in turns allow the viewer to endlessly imagine scenarios drawn from their own senses after viewing the works.
