November Already!? I never really mind when it sneaks up on me like that, Its my favorite time of year. Especially with the shows going on this month. To start it off, Opening November 1st, Spoke Art held its fourth annual Bad Dads show. The show is a yearly homage to the films of Wes Anderson. With over 70 artists supplying original art and Anderson specific print runs, there’s something for everyone. For the first time in my four years of participating in the show I finally took on the subject of Bill Murray, in the form of terrible father, Steve Zissou.

This is an Adventure. 8×16 Acrylic on Panel. Bad Dads 4 runs 11/1 through 11/23.

On November 8, Made in China opens at the Ian Ross Gallery. When I was asked to be in this show, I immediately said yes. Not only did the concept pique my interest, but I HELLA wanted to see what a “Knockoff” of my work would look like. Here’s the concept of the show in a nutshell by curator Eddie Colla:
Loakal gallery and Ian Ross Gallery assembled a group of contemporary artists and sent their work to a painting factory in China to be copied. The original paintings and their “counterfeits” will be displayed side by side. Questioning our society’s underlying assumptions regarding originality, intellectual property and the value of art. Participating artists: D Young V, Akira Beard, Ian Ross, Zoltron, Shark Toof, Jessica Hess, C Kirk, Ernesto Yerena, Eddie Colla, Peter Adamyan, Nite Owl and myself. You can read more about the concept and RSVP to the show HERE. To Illustrate the idea, Here’s is my painting Orange Crush, on the right, with its counterfeit on the left.

Here’s a bit of coverage and a preview of the show via Hi-Fructose.
