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.”

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.

SUEME NEW WALL AND ARTIST INTRODUCTION

I been a Fan of Vancouver Based Artist Sueme for awhile catching his Freights, some amazing traditional based pieces, and some very dope throws and hands. Sueme is a very well rounded Graffiti artist versed in the traditions of the craft, so when i seen this last piece it was a treat to watch an artist push his pieces to another realm and start to explore some new forms and ideas. With the foundation that he already has in his letters it will be fun to watch him explore new territories with this style.

You can catch his blog and Flickr for more of his work.
