Lou Gargokken | EAST 2017

As you may know by now, Lou is one of my favourite people in the world. Not only he’s super creative, but he loves sharing his ideas and art to the world, and that is something not everyone is willing to do… He shares his passion towards Art as a Professor, avid Instagrammer, traveller, and of course Artist and Architect.

“Humor and melancholy are an essential part of his composition. Earthy textures, exaggerated expressions, horns, wings and fangs resemble creatures from the mythological world… I guess these creatures are in some way the physical manifestation of my emotions, my madness and joy”.

Come and meet him this November 18th & 19th at the East Austin Studio Tour #95, you’ll be delighted, I swear 😉

Musician, Teacher, Designer, Artist are a few words we can use to describe this talented, kind dude; I met him in Monterrey through music and it wasn’t till years after that I found out he was as talented at visual arts as he is on Music.

His resume it’s pretty impressive, he’s designed for worldwide brands plus he does a bunch of independent work and teaches unprivileged kids ❤️

You can hear his Austin band Kev Bev and the Woodland Creatures all the time around Austin and of course see/buy his Art at our Studio #111 next Saturday Nov 19th from 11am-6pm yayy

Oh also, you can hear us on KOOP this Monday 14th from 1-2PM Adrian, Clint, myself and our good friend Federico Archuleta (who’s having 2 kick ass shows next weekend) will be talking about EAST and their individual work 😉 

Hope you have a lovely weekend! Let EAST begin and our hearts be filled with art and pretty things yayyy!

First of all, I love you and I appreciate that we are able to share good things through this platform… Art is important for our growth, sanity, and souls. I feel in these transitional times we need it! :*

Lou Gargokken is a wild force. He’s a professor, artist, and activist among many other radical and awesome things. His sculpture and illustrations have gotten him awards as well as his Architecture students, who actually are celebrating that they’re finalists on the International competition Well Building 2050 and they’re going to France because of it. Niceeee!!!

You can join him in his world travels through social media:Instagram Facebook where not only will you be amused by his quirky style of doing everything, but you also get to see a bunch of usual things made in unusual ways, get excited about his accomplishments, ideas, goals, aaaand if you’re really lucky, you might even see him on his tighty whities 😛

He’s an amazing creator and a talent that Mexico is lucky to have. Anyway, he’ll be displaying some sculptures and illustrations at our Studio #111, come by and congratulate him in person!!!!

All our love and support for you ❤

 

EAST 2016, Carlos Olvera

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 ❤

EAST 2016 – Clint Roth

You might know Clint Roth in one of his two facets: Musician as Big Jaw, or an Artist as himself ;P

I knew him through the music but ended up working a little bit more with his Art ❤

His style has been described as “Lowhighmiddlebrow Outsider Pop” (Don’t ask me, but totally haha), & one of the things I love about it is how versatile and just fun to see it is! It’s refreshing how simple, colorful and raw his pieces are. He’s used his art for Album covers, stickers, T-shirts and more, always translating perfectly into any medium.

  • If you have the EAST Catalog, it’s his piece the one that represents The Projecto 😀

He’ll be displaying his Art and chatting with us at Studio #111, hope you can make it!
