The Projecto & Presa House Gallery are happy to present “Degradado” (Gradient), an exhibition featuring artists from Austin, Tx, and Monterrey, Mx in San Antonio, Tx.


“Long-lasting friendships and professional relationships inspired this show where colors turn to shapes and reason dissolves in emotions.

Each artists’ voice is clear and defined, they share very little with each other but together they meld into a gradient spectrum of awesomeness”. 


The opening reception will be held First Friday, December 7 from 6:00 PM to 12:00 AM featuring music by Chido Machine (Austin, TX).

Degradado will be on view by appointment December 7 through December 29, 2018.

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 😉

 

 

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

art, austin, austin tx, entrepeneur, museums, music, reviews, texas, travel, Uncategorized

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!
