If your thing is Photography, Patricia Carrington is the artist for you. Her eye is magical, she can see the beauty in everything and uses her camera to capture it and sharing it with us.
She’s been part of The Projecto since day 1 and this year won’t be an exception, we’ll have her Horizon series for sale, which is benefiting Mexican organizations to rebuild cities affected by recent Earthquakes such as Oaxaca and Chiapas.
Support this important cause while adding a cool, limited edition piece by this fantastic Photographer.

We’ll be posting a few more pieces on our website in case you didn’t have the chance to do your shopping at the Studio.
Weeeell, I have nothing else to say for now but: thank you, thank you!!! XOXO
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!!!
East Austin Studio Tour is almost here and The Projecto will bring great artists and a really fun Happening only on November 19th from 11AM-6PM save the date!!!

RECAP: Mark your calendars SATURDAY November 19th. For The Projecto Happening #111 on the Catalog!
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! 😉
POP AUSTIN International Art Show is in town, make sure to drop by, it has some great pieces with old and new favorites like: Richard Colman and Tom Wesselmann.
We’ll be in San Antonio this Saturday with Chido Machine, drop by The Mix and enjoy great music and guilty pleasures yayyy! 😀

Saturday is also game day so, I’m sure you’ll find lots of things to do, be careful and have lots of fun! Hope to see you around town!
I didn’t say anything when JuanGa passed away; there was enough people talking about it either way (Even Obama tweeted!)… But, when I heard the idea about doing a tribute in his honor, I thought that was the perfect way for me to contribute and express what we as Mexicans and music lovers feel about it/his passing 😦 So, this September the 30th we’re doing a Tribute to JuanGa and I just wanted to invite you guys to enjoy one of the best Mexican gifts to the world, Juan Gabriel’s music (or as I call him for reference, the Mexican Elton John haha).
Sept 30th 9PM at El Sol y la Luna, Austin Tx. Here is the event on FB in case you want more info 😉 Happy last week of September :O
