As we posted previously Remi Rough , Augustine Kofie, Scott Sueme, and Joker would be installing a mural. They finished there Mural Install at the Moda Hotel in Vancouver as part of their Unintended Calculations Show at Becker Galleries. Monumental in Size the 4 man team was able to tackle the walls in a 3 day period leading up to the opening. Indigo the curator of the install and event couldn’t have picked anyone else that would have complimented each others work so well. Thank to Aaron Smedley for the beautiful photographs as he was able to document the install. Also thanks again to GetGrounded TV for the video shot day one of the install. We hope to have some of the pictures from the opening of the show in the next couple days.

Unintended Calculations is an upcoming exhibition at Becker Galleries that is very special to Graffuturism and its extended family of contributors and artists. You can say these artists involved in this exhibition are one of the reasons this site exists. It is with great satisfaction that we are able to post these preview images of some of the work that will be in the show. Thanks to Indigo for the pictures, and also for bringing these artists together and allowing them to build upon an already in motion evolution of our art form. Thanks to Grounded TV who shot the video. I am not ruling out making the trip to see this show in person, and if I were anywhere near Vancouver I would suggest making the trip to this event.

Here is a brief Bio about the Show

“Curated by Indigo, Unintended Calculations brings together a group of internationally renowned artists – Augustine Kofie (LA), Jerry Inscoe (PDX), Remi/Rough (LDN) and Scott Sueme (VAN) – for an exhibition at Becker Galleries and two collaborative murals at Moda Hotel exploring four very different approaches to abstraction. Working in a variety of mediums, these artists have evolved the letter form building blocks of their shared graffiti background, deconstructing and rebuilding them as compositions of color, line, shape and movement.”

Better late than never, here are a couple of walls from Late 2010. Mr Remi Rough and LX One where able to get together with Antistatik, and collaborate on a wall in Strasbourg. Its always interesting watching artists with similar yet different styles come together and collaborate on a wall. Really impressed with the outcome. I especially liked the use of negative space in the first mural, leaving some texture in the background was a nice touch. The second wall is a track side wall LX and Remi Rough knocked out, and again another great collaboration from the Agents of Change duo. I hadn’t seen many LX One walls before this, and i was impressed. Were looking forward to seeing some new work from all these guys this year. Stay Tuned.

This is a bit of an Artist Feature/Preview of some new work from the artist Steve More. He will be exhibiting in a 2 man show next month with Remi Roughe. I was first introduced to Steve’s work in the agents of Change group show in 2009. I was drawn to his abstract style and visual use of texture that added a 3d dimension in his work. Steve More’s work reminds me at times of some images u might find in an old typographers workshop. I think of a crafted painter when i look at these pieces, something that was weathered and formed into being. With so many slick painters nowadays pushing out hyperized styles its refreshing to see some craft in a fine art environment.

GF

Here is an excerpt from there Coming Show “A” “Steve More’s work has a tactile quality that is derived from the surfaces in his environment. Found and discarded materials are assimilated into pixels, questioning how the computer age affects our perceptions of time and place. His work is meticulously crafted using the forming and subsequent erosion of materials as an important part of the process. In contrast, Remi’s work is less premeditated and more concerned with immediacy of the moment.

The title for the show ‘A’ holds a significant meaning for both artists: It symbolizes new beginnings and heralds a coming of age. It also gives a nod to their past muse: Letter form (A being the first letter of the alphabet). It also bears light on the ‘Abstract’ world in which they convey their ‘Art’, and their ‘Avant garde’ attitude with which they produce it.”

What can i say, Art Basel & Primary Flight 2010 was an event that i wont forget. Great art, great graffiti, and great times with some of the best writers in the world, not to mention the perfect weather and very attractive women floating around everywhere you seemed to look. I will definitely miss Miami after this trip. Over the last couple of months the names and events seemed to grow by the day as it seemed like this was going to be an event to remember. I was not disappointed. With Spanish Montana Paint shipping over 6000 cans to satisfy all the Graffiti artists appetites, and Primary Flight providing countless walls, enough scissor lifts and flood lights to keep everyone painting into the midnight hours empty lots turned into Hall of Fame type of Yards. It was good to see a huge turnout of talented Graffiti artists painting on every surface imaginable in Miami’s Design district. I wasn’t very impressed with what seemed like an overwhelming amount of street artists that showed up to share the walls with the graffiti artists. I think the Graffiti held its ground in this event and it was the graffiti murals not the stencils that stole the show this year. Not knocking street art, but it has been awhile since i have seen anything of importance and with 10 blogs for every work an artist seems to do i think they have saturated themselves with some very mediocre work as of late.

Here are some of the hundreds of pieces that went up over the week in Miami. I will say that it was good to see some artists push some new styles and ideas. Graffuturism was alive in Miami as the paradigms continue to shift, talented artist’s pushed their own limits as well as that of our Artform. It was also great to see some legends out making sure everyone knows foundation is a key to any building. Good times with everyone i got to meet and paint with. I will be posting some more updates in the next couple of days. One last thing i will say is that i noticed there was a clear push into some more Abstract ideas and concepts from many artists, and i was surprised as i was intrigued as to where this might lead. Looks like 2011 is going to be a very interesting year.
