  2. El Mac “paints La Señora de la Muerte” [Video] from Eric Heights

    This is a short video I shot documenting a recent mural painted in Los Angeles by El Mac. It’s his interpretation of Mictecacihuatl, or la Señora de La Muerte. The mural was sponsored by FX in promotion of their new series The Bridge. The show is set in El Paso/Juarez and deals with some of the border issues and violence there, which is important to El Mac.

    Neck Face Painting New Image Art: “No Mercy For The Weak”

     
     


  6. CHICANO ART MOVEMENT attends: Neck Face “NO MERCY FOR THE WEAK” opening reception @ New Image Art gallery, 2013

    (Nasty Neck Face - “NO MERCY FOR THE WEAK” @ New Image Art gallery. September 7th, 2013 )


    CAM:

    Last week I attended the opening reception for Street artist Neck Face’s gallery exhibition entitled, "NO MERCY FOR THE WEAK" at New Image Art Gallery in West Hollywood, California. The exhibit consisted of Neck Face’s grandeur application of his art to the walls of the gallery à la his street style, and the release of two new prints by this elusive street artist. The original art to the prints was also displayed in the exhibition. Neck Face’s - “Drink About It,” a 16x20 inch print which was my favorite, and “Your Last Post” where the newest prints created at Poster Child Prints (PCP) for release. I did not partake in Neck Face’s exhibit the previous year, also held at New Image Art gallery. Viewing opening reception images from last years exhibit I was compelled to attend "NO MERCY FOR THE WEAK" on September 7th, 2013. Promotion was a plenty for this exhibit and I was able to preview many images via the internet prior to attending. That prepared me for what I knew would be an intense show to view in person.

    Walking up to the gallery I began to see the large crowd of art goers loitering outside the gallery, not knowing they were just trying to escape the heat inside the gallery. I was already preparing myself not to make it in the gallery due to capacity. Luckily, once I excused and squeezed myself enough to get to the door I made it in. With bottles breaking and the D.J. spinning Heavy Metal tunes, I knew I was definitely in Nasty Neck Face’s turf.
    Inside the crowded gallery I was instantly hit with intense stifling heat and the aroma of scorched spilled beer. Intended or not, the temperature in the gallery that night gave the perception of actually visiting Satan’s art gallery/sauna. It was Great! Exactly how I imagined a Neck Face show would look, smell and sound like. Never have I sweat so much from just enjoying art and taking pictures.

    In the controlled chaos of "NO MERCY FOR THE WEAK" exhibition, I was able to capture some great images of the prints and the artwork created on the walls of New Image Art gallery.
    I was able to congratulate Neck Face on his show, I bought a T-shirt, wanted a print. I had him sign the bag the shirt it came in, I will eventually will wear the T-shirt and I would not want to harm Neck’s tag for fashion.

    Awesome show Neck Face and New Image Art Gallery!

    Director David Em introduces his film, Graffiti Fever (1978), about 1970s Los Angeles graffiti artists. He speaks about what turned him onto the idea of looking at the graffiti being made at the time. In the film itself, the director talks with Chaz Bojorquez among other pioneer LA graffiti artists and writers about what motivates their work .


    The film was included in MOCA’s Art in the Streets exhibition.

    A few weeks ago after attending Sergio Hernandez's, Good Sport exhibit at AS ISSUED Art+Design Bookstore (READ HERE) I sent SURGE an email asking if he would answer a few questions for my write up on his show. Unfortunately, I was not able to have Mr. Hernandez participate on the post, but I did get him to do my third installment of five questions with one artist. Check it.
