I know I’m surrounded by awesome people that could generate smart, fun and worthy content, so, let’s do it!

Echenme grito si tienen cualquier idea, yo estoy trabajando en varios proyectos tentativos y me encantaría contar con ustedes y sus propuestas.

EAST 2016, Beverly Kemp

art, austin, austin tx, entrepeneur, latin america, museums, reviews, texas, Uncategorized

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!!!

🙂 XOXO

 

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!

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! 😀

JuanGa <3

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
