UPCOMING EVENTS

Fast Forward at 1:AM Art Gallery

It is an exciting time for the graffiti scene. Walls are being taken down and boundaries are being pushed beyond their limits… This evolution is fusing old with new school, graffiti with fine art. An innovative and fresh art form is emerging that has collectors and fans asking for more.

1AM and curator, Mike Tyau, presented “Fast Forward”, a group exhibition that captured the progressive evolution of spray can art. The collection included works from Jaybo Monk from Germany, Suiko from Japan, Sueme from Canada and Poesia, Robz, and Bam from the Bay Area. In the past year, 1AM has showcased graffiti’s roots with the exhibition “The Classics” and present form with “Outside In”. “Fast Forward” is a journey into the future and an imagining of what graffiti as an art form can and will be. Immersed in the experimental, this exhibition aims to excite and surprise fans, artists, and collectors, alike, of the controversial medium’s progression. (disclaimer: words from the first two paragraphs were taken from the invite)

When I got there, Mike gave me a quick rundown on what Poesia was trying to convey. It’s dope to know what was in the mind of the artist after looking at their work. I was able to see the Cubist and Classic influences. The progression from right to left is pretty sick. I heard he coated the pieces with 30 coats of clear. That makes them super heavy.
