March is “awesome-artist-curated-show” month!! Mark it down, March 19th in Detroit – the Lyric Show – curated by Glenn Barr!
For the Hello Kitty fans and lovers out there, you know that on November 1st, Hello Kitty will have her 35th birthday. So for such a huge occasion, Sanrio has been going ALL OUT, all over the world, with events, tours, shows, etc.
But the party doesn’t start only on November 1st. In fact, down at Royal/T in Los Angeles, the party starts this Friday, October 23rd when the Three Apples Exhibition opens to the public.
If you are in Los Angeles, you should go check out the exhibition. It was curated by the sweetest of sweet girls, and my good friend, Jamie Rivadeneira. Jamie owns Japanla – and if you want cute stuff – she’s got it!
This is my painting, my homage to Hello Kitty:
Hello Kitty Forever!!! <3 <3
The highly anticipated Vain Remains gallery show featuring Camilla d’Errico and Caia Koopman opens tomorrow! Friday, September 11th, at Thinkspace Gallery in Santa Monica. The official press release can be found here.
Ok enough writing in the ‘third person’! I have painted my life out for these pieces and I know a lot of people have been wondering, waiting to see the ‘new direction’ and ‘totally different’ paintings that I’ve been hinting at. I look forward to meeting anyone and everyone who comes out tomorrow. The pening reception is from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm and Caia will also be there. We’ve worked on a really funky installation; walls adorned with antlers and sketches that will be for sale.
I am hot off the heels of a whirlwind summer convention tour including San Diego comic con and Singapore comic con, but I must say that I am proud to present 11 new pieces which explore nature in all it’s phases, and the circle of life. They nearly killed me, so I guess it’s poetic justice.
Without further ado, here are some pictures of the new paintings. I hope you enjoy them because they hold a very special and deep meaning for me, part of a phase of my life that has enriched me greatly. And I look forward to hearing from everyone what meanings you all find, in these girls’ eyes.
