Submitted by russell on Fri, 05/09/2014 - 13:19

I am writing today because I'd like to invite you to check out my website update, it's here: adam5100.com, there are lots of new things on there, from new works, to links to my "morning warm up series", as well as links to my social media and such (where you can keep track of my studios day to day). Please click all the buttons, or don't it's up to you. :)

In the news department, I have been doing a year of commissions, from wrapping up a six piece commission for the new San Francisco 49ers stadium, to doing a ceiling painting for a new restaurant. All of this after last years personal successes, such as winning the Herradura barrel art program here in SF. and coming real close to selling out the show last August. My next show will be September at a place called "The Battery" also here in SF. After that I will be headed back to my home of Albuquerque for a two week residency at the Tamarind Institute of Lithography.

A Parodist Who Calls Himself Hanksy

The street artist who calls himself Hanksy, on Orchard Street in Lower Manhattan with his piece “Walter Flite.” Nicole Bengiveno/The New York Times

This is a story about art in the age of social media — about anonymity and self-promotion, about feral cats and viral cat videos.

In April 2011, a law school dropout in Bushwick, Brooklyn, newly arrived from the Midwest, had an idea that he thought might make a splash. He admired the street artist Banksy; he grew up on the movies of Tom Hanks. Why not mash up the two? Using simple computer software, he downloaded a Banksy painting of a rat holding a paint roller, then added an image of Mr. Hanks’s face. The whole thing took 10 or 15 minutes to create. He printed a cutout and…

Banksy Painting Up NYC for Month of Oct.

Submitted by russell on Fri, 10/04/2013 - 10:05

Attn. New Yorkers, drop everything and run - RUN - to Banksy's twitter feed (or possibly other street art Tweets) to see where he strikes next. Do it NOW... before it gets stolen, tagged over, or buffed. Quit your job if you have to.

Or... shrug.

Banksy presents:

Better Out than In

An Artists Residency on the Streets of New York

New Book by Jef Aerosol

Jef Aérosol from Alternatives Press

 

« En 1982, je bombais mon premier pochoir sur les murs de la ville de Tours. C'est comme si c'était hier et pourtant trente années ont passé. Trois décennies d'aventures artistiques et humaines au cours desquelles j'ai poursuivi et approfondi mon travail de photo-graphiste, de plasticien, de peintre… de bidouilleur d'images, quoi ! J'ignore combien de lames de cutter j'ai usées, combien de pochoirs j'ai découpés, combien de murs et de toiles j'ai peints, combien de bombes aérosol j'ai vidées mais je sais que ma passion pour les images en général et pour l'art urbain en particulier ne s'est jamais émoussée et qu'elle s'enrichit chaque jour des expériences nouvelles qu'il m'est donné de vivre. Cet ouvrage propose un petit voyage en…

RIP Michael Moll

Submitted by russell on Sun, 02/24/2013 - 10:53

Stencils (Public Art) can inform, inspire, and incite..... Here is an email from someone who discovered this (Russell)

......

This is a heart rending story, please give it your attention and share this information.

I was wandering around San Francisco as I usually do, and I happened upon this Art on the sidewalk. Looks like a memorial of sorts. It is on the corner of 19th Avenue & Noriega Street in San Francisco, near the Penzoil Station.

There is a date on this art 2/19/2003. I saw it yesterday 2/19/13. So I did some research and found out that this was the 10 year anniversary of the Shooting of Michael Moll near this spot.

(One thing I know about News is, don’t believe everything that is written, you have to question things and use your brain! Who wrote it, what intentions…

Logan Hicks "Lights Out" to Benefit Hurricane Sandy victims

Submitted by russell on Fri, 11/09/2012 - 12:25

"Lights Out" Benefit photograph from Logan Hicks for Hurricane Sandy victims

Hurricane Sandy has destroyed entire towns and families in the tri-state New York area. While my own family and belongings escaped any real damage, many were not as fortunate. As we came through the hurricane, I thought 'that wasn't so bad' - and in my neighborhood, it wasn't. Then the news channels started to parade the misery of communities like Staten Island and Breezy Point across the screen. They were decimated. Entire houses washed away, lives lost, and cherished possessions destroyed.

My good friend John Lee from @EmehtAgency made a suggestion that I sell one of the photos taken of downtown Manhattan during the power loss to help raise money for those in need. It sounded like the perfect way for me to assist. The conditions which produced amazing photographs for me were also the same conditions that have displaced families. It's the obligation of those that have, to help those who do not…
