25 Feb:: Jana and Js "Jeux de constructions" show (Paris)

Jana & Js

Solo show "Jeux de constructions"
February, 25 - March, 26

Opening on Friday, February, 25 from 6 pm

Deserted factories, parking lots being demolished, low rise apartment blocks : these elements - among many others - surround and inspire Jana & Js. Their work is nourished by the city they live in, together with its inhabitants and its ever changing architectural landscape. The paintings created by this couple of artists make use of extremely detailed and scrupulously prepared stencils..
Jana & Js raise the question of the individual in large groups of buildings and more widely in the cities, combining portraits and architectural views.
Their street paintings (in France, Austria, Russia, Slovakia, Romania and Spain) also led them to develop an interaction with the environment in which they operate and the public – passerby or spectator – using sets of mirrors as a game in order to create infinities of ways of seeing the city.
Jana & Js are young artists whose work began to take shape only in the mid-2000, and who are today among the most talented of their generation. After having lived and worked together in Paris, they are today between Austria and France.
Jeux de Constructions is the second exhibition in Itinerrance Gallery devoted to them. Combining their love for woodworking, rebuilding their own materials and images composition from their cuts, this exhibition will present for the first time a wide range of their work volume initiated a few months ago.

9 Dec :: Broken Meter Zine Release : SF, CA

Broken Meter

Zine Release Party and Gallery Show
Created by Adam Rozan

Shooting Gallery
835 Larkin Street
San Francisco, CA

...Broken Meter is a celebration of city life, a visual recording of the activity, movement, and energy of the urban environment. Broken Meter is not gentrification, trash removal, clean swept streets, and flower boxes, but rather the decay, the chipped, flaked, broken aesthetic of our culture. Broken meter is the misspelled sign, the street preacher, the converted U-Haul cardboard trucks, the old ladies and recycled cans
and bottles, the graffiti tag, the covered up graffiti tagged, the re-tagging of the original piece, it is the funny face, the sad face, the busted, it is the unexpected, the hopeless, it is both beautiful, and sad, it is the Broken Meter.

2 Dec :: Jeremy Novy Lets Meet Exhibit (SF, CA)

Lets Meet a collection of queer stencils from the past year by Jeremy Novy

San Francisco, CA (November 3, 2010)— The San Francisco LGBT Center is honored to present “Lets Meet”, a collection of queer stencils from the past year by Jeremy Novy.

His koi fish stencils found through out the city have gained him acceptance by not only the street art community of San Francisco but also complements from the Cities Department of Public Works. Yet this exhibit is about something much deeper then just adding beauty to urban blight. It's street art with a social message against homophobia.

Novy has made a limited edition print, signed and numbered, for the 50 guests, along with having Pabst Blue Ribbon beer on hand.
