3 The Hard Way

So on Thursday all it went down, the first real solo exhibition for Andrew, Timbo and I.
Thanks to those that came, dropped in or soldiered on for the whole night. All is very much appreciated and the support was definetly felt.

BIG thanks goes to Vibewire, Sabrina, Borrott, Dori and Charlie Fung for helping us set up and get everything in order, all the peeps that reblogged/spammed/hustled our promos all over the internets and Jinman for laying down the beats for a good 3 hours. Final thanks to Tim who bascially curated/orchestrated the whole exhibit and Andrew for putting in the hard yards and pumping out dope works.

So Ive avoided blogging progress of the works to “suprise” people, but here they are. Will probably post some behind the scenes stuff throughout the week but for the mean time here are some snaps of the works on the night, mostly jacked courtesy of Mikey Dees blog.

3 Different artists – 3 different styles

Timothy

Insane intricate gouche work, the level of detail was amazing. To the applause of many fiends (Diana, Kayo) that 20 looked real! haha

Andrew

Staying true to the “family” roots, Andrew worked on a series of black ink illustrations Americana style with a bit of jap thrown in for good measure.

Me

Since Andrew had black and white covered, I tried to go back and experiment with a large scale acrylic/spray style that I used to work with a few years back. It feels good to paint again after so much straight ink work.

There were a few more artworks from each of us on display but il post them up later as better quality versions/more photos are uploaded from the night.
For the mean time this is the first set via Timbo:

If you weren’t able to come to opening night the exhibition will be open for the next 2 weeks I believe from 10-6 Monday to Friday.

First song Jinman spun, how fitting
