This year we’re doing things a bit differently, we partnered with the awesome people at Furman+Keil Architects who have generously provided a brand new space for Ernesto’s geometrical magic to happen: 2 weekends, 1 artist, all the love.
The festivities will begin on November 9th at Furman + Keil Architect’s new space, come and be one of the first to experience “The Flea and the Acrobat” plus some of Ernesto’s showstoppers, accompanied by our lovely sponsors Topo Chico, the always delicious Hendrick’s Gin & our one and only Pennyback Tonics ❤
Can’t wait to show you what we’ve been preparing for you, let the most exciting season in Austin Arts begin!
What a delight last Sunday was! Not only did we enjoy ourselves with plenty of cold craft beers at the beautiful Axelrad Beergarden, we also got some nourishment with a slice of delish Luigis Pizzeria’s pizza (yes, by “a slice of pizza” I mean I didn’t even bother to count how many I ate). On top of that, we had the MEGA Pleasure of listening to Gabriel Santiago and two very special guests. It was PRICELESS! Sidiel Vieira & Thiago Rabello joined one of my favorite musicians and gave us an amazing, breathtaking afternoon ❤
It’s freaking magic when you can hear music being fabricated. The artists jammed, looked at each other, and knew exactly how to transport the entire audience at all times. We were delighted with covers and some new tunes from their new album “Traveler”. BRAVO!
Thanks to our lovely friends from Wonky Power for making this beautiful experience happen!
For all of those that were not able to attend and experience it live, I’m sorry, I wish you had. As I write this post looking at one of Greometria’s drawing I think it somewhat connects all the magic I was able to experience that day. I hope it touches you in a similar way.
Carlos Olvera or “Vegan Cannibal” as the internet world knows him, is an important, multidisciplinary and fun artist! I’ve known him for over a decade and each time I see him, I learn a lot and have a blast all together.
I met him while I was working at an Art Gallery, and he would often do custom paintings for our clients; it always amazed me how he could dominate every single style, no matter what the demands were, he would pull it off.
Now he only does his thing with a very specific style: Fun-Zombie-Goreish-Punkedelic I would call it 😛 & he continues to amaze me with every piece.
He has gone from drawings to paintings, to objects, music, fanzines and tattoos (among others I’m sure); It doesn’t matter if you give him a skateboard, a toilet, paper or canvas, he’ll do something great and creative. He and his art have traveled the world and now we’ll have them here in Austin!
Come join us for some good times, some drinks and a lot of Vegan Cannibal this November the 19th at Studio #111 ❤
Beverly Kemp is a unique Painter and Internet Sensation, people recognize her controversial & raw Art anywhere; Last year Bev and Gerardo Arellano were “Must See” EAST studio #6 by Do512‘s featuring an Ann Richards painting that brought a smile to everyone.
This year She’ll work again with #TheProjecto bringing new and not so new pieces to us!
Let me share you an excerpt of her bio that I love, and describes some of what you’ll see:
Reviewers and critics have described my work as ‘eye-popping’ and ‘Disney-fied.’ Yet, I find that my oils on canvas are more than screaming upside-down, inside-out point-of-view statements or cross-eyed observations of societal norms and women’s issues that shouldn’t be. As I age and wage an on-going battle with Parkinson’s disease, filling in another red dress comes easier and easier. Now, I know my paint is saying something. ❤
Hope You’re already convinced and drop by Studio #111!!!
A bunch of things have happened/ lately, so here is a recap:
Think well before buying ACL Vip tickets! Its awesome when you’re in the VIP lounge but you don’t get any benefits where the music is at
#WheresWarhol is up and running! The Blanton Museum is sending “Warhols”through the streets of Austin to promote and give passes for the new exhibit “Warhol by the Book”be on the lookout every Wednesday of October and don’t forget to use #WheresWarhol!!! * The exhibition opens this Sunday Oct 16th.
Go to all Austin Chronicle events, specially if it includes “Master Pancake” Comedy troupe, they’re hilarious!!! I went to their “Willow” screening and I cried a lot (laughing of course). It was interactive, funny, and we got to curse a lot, so great stress relief! 😉
We’ll be in San Antonio this Saturday with Chido Machine, drop by The Mix and enjoy great music and guilty pleasures yayyy! 😀
Back in Austin, Celebrate the “Intl Video Store Day” at Vulcan Video & I Luv Video! They’re joining forces and will give us great deals on VHS, DVD/Blu Rays plus free beer, prizes, discounts, etc! This Saturday Oct 17th from 12PM-12AM
