August 12th is World Elephant Day

They Never, Ever Forget 12x12
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.

July 29th is International Tiger Day. It’s a day to promote the protection and expansion of wild tiger habitats and to gain support through awareness for tiger conservation. Some 97 per cent of all wild tigers have been lost in just over 100 years. As few as 3,000 tigers live in the wild today, and a number of tiger species have already become extinct.The biggest threat to the tiger is illegal trade, with the animal’s body parts sought for trophies and medicinal purposes. Their shrinking habitat, human-wildlife conflict and climate change are also growing threats. Learn how you can help by visiting tigerday.org or tigers.panda.org

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!
