New Show up through February at UFA® Gallery

The 3rd Anniversary of Urban Folk Art® Gallery was in late Jan. The show is up through Feb, and features current work by myself and Urban Folk Art® Studios co founder Jason Mitchell. You can see the full catalog here. Below is a couple large-ish paintings I did recently (as in finished the day of the opening! and here’s a opening recap on the studio’s blog. check it!

 ”New and the Old” 24″X36″ Acrylic on canvas.

This is the view i see every morning walking back from my work out. I see it as I am about to walk across the Carroll Street bridge over the Gowanus canal. The Church is St. Agnes (built in 1905) and  1 World Trade Center in lower Manhattan while it was in the midst of being completed last year (2013).

“Inception” 24″X36″ Acrylic on Canvas

This was more just messing around with the city mandal-y images I have been playing with. It’s the first time I had ever painted sneakers, and was a lot of fun (although at times seemed never ending). More than a couple people remarked, while I was painting it, that it reminded them of the movie ‘Inception’, so that’s where the title came from.

Illustration for Restaurant Hollow Nickel

I was asked to do a tshirt illustration for a great local restaurant Hollow Nickel. The true story behind the name is great. Basically, back in the early 1950′s a paperboy collecting for the Brooklyn Eagle dropped a nickel that fell on the ground and turned out to be hollow. Inside was microfilm from the KGB. The whole story can be read here, it’s pretty nuts, and very cool that the name was derived from local noir. They made tshirts of the design for the Atlantic Antic this year, and are likely still available at the restaurant. (494 Atlantic Ave).

Printing Pint Glass giftboxes

I hand printed a bunch of Pint Glass gift boxes in the gallery the other day.

Free with any purchase of 4 or more glasses from my Brooklyn Landmark Pint Glass series. They are built so 4 pint glasses can be separated when box is closed.

While I was at it I used the screen to mess around with some other stuff, check out the gallery below and see, cheers-

4 days until my solo show, sneak peek time!

So I have a few days left until my solo show/ UFA© Gallery first anniversary party, so I figured each day i’ll post something that will be at the show, wether it be merch or new art. Here’s the first thing. I compiled 50 photos of Brooklyn Bridge tattoos I have done on people, and put it into a small 8″ square self published DIY like book. It will be available at the show, and later i’ll post where it can be bought online, and it will always be available at the shop. Check it out!- Adam
