Today is World Elephant Day. On August 12, 2012, the inaugural World Elephant Day was launched to bring attention to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants. The elephant is loved, revered and respected by people and cultures around the world, yet we balance on the brink of seeing the last of this magnificent creature.

On 3/19 at 1AM SF The End is Near opens with Lango Oliveira and VYAL ONE. I love and have followed both these guys work for a while now. I’m really looking forward to this show, which if you like, you can RSVP to HERE.
Here’s a bit about it from the team at 1AM : “First Amendment Gallery is proud to present “The End Is Near”, a group exhibition featuring Vyal One, Robert Bowen, and Lango Oliveira. Join us for the opening receptionThursday, March 19th, 2016, from 6:30-9:30PM. Artists will be in attendance*, and the event is free and open to the public.
“The End Is Near” offers the self-taught artists’ insight into a post-apocalyptic world. Their uniquely creative acuity reveals a misunderstood beauty in the ‘destruction’ of our society, a beauty in the dawn of darkness. With this brief vision of another world, California artists Vyal, Robert, and Lango create a wildly saturated, dynamic body of work all in their signature styles with visible roots in graffiti. The body of work is unsettling, intriguing, and ultimately enchanting–not quite like a dream, nor a nightmare.”
I hope to see you there!
