San and Escif in Los Angeles

11 San and Escif in Los Angeles San l.a. barracuda fifty24sf escif

SAN and Escif continue their trekking out West on their Upper Playground tour that culminates with their FIFTY24SF show on June 30th, and they just finished a new wall at De La Barracuda in LA, after they painted the front here.

And then, we just got this message that “we are off to Vegas.” And  it seems they are posting some walls up along the way…

More to come all month…

SEE THE REST

Olivier Vrancken

– Where do you live?

In The Netherlands.

– What kind of artist are you?

Basically i’m a graphic designer. I started painting about a year ago,
which i try to do as full-time as possible now. I hope one day to live from it, in the meantime i still do some minor graphic work, just to pay the bills.

– How would you describe your work?

It’s abstract, symbolic & personal. I often start with a rough outline or form and go from there. Colors and forms develop along the way or derive partly from sketches , it’s quite an impulsive process. The forms and col ors work in har mony to build a bridge within the rela tion ships.

– Where do you draw inspiration from, and are there any particular artists you look up to?

Books, movies, music, thoughts, documentaries, philosophy, symbolism, psychedelic stuff, primitive art, 60s & 70s art & design, experiences, life in general and other artists, too many to name, there’s so much talent out there.

-Any upcoming shows, projects, or adventures?

A duo-show in June with illustrator Roya Hamburger at Alley art gallery, Belgium. Also in June, a groupshow in London with David Shillinglaw and others, some work on the Stroke Artfair in Germany and a solo show by the end of August at Nice/Nice in Hannover, that’s about it for now.

-What makes you happy?

My kids, painting, freedom….

We have long been distant admirers of the work of Richard Long, and his “Art made by walking in landscapes, photographs of sculptures made along the way” body of work. After seeing his work at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 2006, in an exhibit called The Path Is the Place Is the Line, we became even bigger fans. Born in Bristol, England in 1945, and has shown internationally since 1968. His last major exhibition was at the Tate Britain in 2009. These particular landscape images range from the 1960s to 1980s, and are all shot in black and white.

The London Guardian’s guide to World Cup 2010

The London Guardian’s guide to World Cup 2010” posted from: The Citrus Report | Art, Culture, News, Graffiti, Music, Street Art, Clothing, Politics, Reviews

Look, we are Americans, so most of us know not as much about the World Cup as say, a Brit, a Dutch, a Brazilian, a South African, or a German. We need a nice concise, easy to navigate guide to help us along the way. The London Guardian has that guide, and they are calling it the “All You Need To Know” guide, which we have spent some time reading it now, and it really is a very helpful guide, even though we follow international soccer a bit. A must read. They have a team guide for each team, so its thorough.
