Harker recently exhibited her work in a group show entitled "Canvas Streets" at Destroy Rebuild Repeat Gallery in Santa Monica. She is looking forward to showing at the Santa Monica Art Studios. It is a gallery near and dear to her heart.

“I feel honored to show paintings alongside artists whose work I have admired and observed over the years. I find the Santa Monica Studios quite inspiring. The galleries... Read More

Bernard Pras creates mind blowing pieces of art. He takes ordinary, everyday objects such as clothes, toys, tools, pieces of rubber, or whatever else he can think of and puts them together to create portraits.

These are far from ordinary portraits. Pras works in the sphere of anamorphosis. That's where a distorted projection has to be viewed from a specific vantage point or in a particular way to reconstitute the intended image. "Leonardo's Eye (Leonardo da Vinci, c. 1485) is the earliest known definitive example of perspective anamorphosis in modern times," according to Wikipedia... Read More

Though I will admit that tattoos are not for me, because I would not put anything on my body that I could not remove or wipe off when I tired of it, there is awesome artwork staining flesh these days. And now my oldest daughter that has a “sleeve” of tattoos—a colorful menagerie—on one arm has added my portrait, of when I was about twenty-one years of age, to her collection. Sigh!

Am I flattered that I am now part of her proud collection, you may ask. Well, without doubt yes…and…no. I appreciate the artwork, who wouldn’t? And I most certainly appreciate the love and sentiment that inspired... Read More

Now why would I possibly pick this famous artist? Well, I'm currently in Chicago and I just visited his exhibition at the Chicago Art Institute. I walked in a sceptic, thinking 'who the hell is this guy?' and I walked out a fan. Such a body of work, covering such a diverse range of seemingly mundane subjects. He painted large versions of ordinary household objects like a spray can, or a transistor radio, or sneakers and got your interest straight away. His most famous work, however, was his comic strip re-creations featuring romance and war. This all started in 1961 with his painting of Mickey... Read More

living homeless, landing in jail (for punching a security guard in Tokyo) and traveling like a creative hobo before the company finally floats itself ,earning him a potential $200 million.

The company of course is Facebook and the artist David Choe. It's a good story, and archetypal rags to riches tale, a modern day road to Damascus if you will, and more power to him.

Except, Choe-a one time Beverly Hills high school alumni, and son of real estate agent's, has been on the so called 'fringe' for over ten years, earning quite the resume and with his bad Barron Storey knock... Read More

The term "Outsider Art" is a broader interpretation of the 1920's French identification of "Art Brut", which consisted of art created by patients with mental disorders. These days, the term encompasses art which falls largely out of the confines of academia, galleries, and the politics of traditional art communities. It is often called "naive" art - for obvious reasons.

So, with that itty-bit of Art History 101 behind us, let's move on to things that actually matter.

Like any other professional community, artists and those who peddle their efforts have their own small clique and... Read More
