In October 2013, Imprint hosted a speaker event starring Angeleno artist David Choe, speaking at JANM in Little Tokyo. It was an intimate and intense experience while David explained his theories on creativity, such as “don’t get comfortable” by proceeding to make the entire audience uncomfortable, and in graphic detail. David’s fans ate it up, of course. It was surreal. That said, if swearwords and potty-mouth-ism are not your cup of tea, then this is not the inspiring recap for you. Enjoy (but don’t say I didn’t warn you).
I’m very pleased to say I’ve just posted an interview with artist James “sheOne” Choules over on the Imprint Culture Lab site this morning. I’ve been a fanboy of James’ work since way back – well over a decade ago. He had tons of interesting things to say about his work, life, the universe, and everything. Plus there are nice photos of his great work. Go! Go! Go!
Contrary to what the name might imply, this is not a post about what happens when Stephen Hawking goes mountain climbing. High Math, is, in fact, a group art exhibition curated by Arkitip and Slow Culture opening up at the Highland Park gallery tomorrow evening. Contributors include some Typo faves such as Aaron De La Cruz, Hassan Rahim, Kevin Lyons, and Jay Howell. The show mostly consists of works on paper including silk screens, lithographs and hand-done originals.
The Hundreds have posted a great recap of the #LoveForLeni art fundraiser which was held at Slow Culture gallery in Highland Park last week. The event had an amazing turnout and was successful based on how many pieces appeared to have sold too! The photography by Kazie Holiday really captures the community vibe nicely.
