The often imitated, never duplicated, OG vinyl art show, Vinyl Killers returns this October for another round of rescuing long forgotten records from the world’s landfills. This year there have been at least 6 other vinyl shows in North America alone and interest in the artform is at an all time high. After six annual shows and several touring exhibits Vinyl Killers remains committed to staying open call, independent, D-I-Y, and free of corporate sponsorship.

Since it’s inception in 2003 Vinyl Killers has showcased well over 1000 records painted by artists from around the world. A quick glance at the VK website shows both the genres global influence and the absolutely amazing things that are being done with paint and old records. Media recognition for this innovative show includes The Art Of Rebellion 2 and Stencil Nation, and features in numerous international street art magazines and blogs. In 2005 Klutch, the founder and curator of VK, had the room that he decorated with painted records for San Francisco’s Hotel Des Arts featured in Time magazine.

You can view and purchase art from the entire show after Sun, Nov 1st

Portland City Art, Shows Ect.

29 08 2009

What a crazy amazing couple of months.  Have had many shows including:  live paint with PCA at the Art Institute of Portland, The Red and Black show at Gallery Zero, AC/VC at Audiocinema, and another live paint at The Nest.  All tolled, it’s been crazy.  Of all of the things that I have been a part of lately though, the Manor of Art, out at Milepost 5’s artist community was the most insane.  Over 100 of Portland’s artists took over a closed retirement home.  My room was the “Ghosts of Granny’s past room”.

My son and I did a huge wrap around mural on all of the walls, and called it “The Forever Hill”.  It turned out amazing!  Here are some photos!


More soon, I swear, I’m going to get better at this blogging thing.
