Visual Art Exhibition
21 – 28 April 2012
Trio Art Space, Hotel Trio Jl Sudirman 72, Magelang


Another Greenhorn adalah proses pergerakan bagi seniman-seniman baru, tak bisa dipungkiri setiap hari pasti terlahir seniman-seniman baru yang tak lain dikemudian hari akan berkembang, berjuang menjadi kaliber andalan dalam sejarah seni. Kami mencoba memberikan apa yang kami rasakan, apa yang sejauh ini kami alami dan juga yang akan selalu kami impikan ke dalam sebuah bahasa symbol, visual dalam seni rupa, yaitu karya lukis.

nama yang kami ambil untuk project ini merupakan ganjaran bagi kami dimana seniman baru sering tersandung karena dianggap remeh, dtolak karena mbaru saja tahu nama itu. Merupakan hal yang ironis dimana seseorang yang baru tidak diberikan kesempatan untuk menunjukkan taringnya dalam berkesenian, baru bukan berarti tidak memiliki qualitas atau tidak memiliki semangat juang untuk mencapai apa yang kami inginkan.

Jadwal Acara :
21 April :
15.00 : Opening
16.00 : Intuisi (musikalisasi puisi)
22 April :
11.00 : Gathering Street Art bersama I.S.A.D (Indonesian Street Art Database)
12.00 : peluncuran Rar Magazine
13.00 – Selesai : Menggambar Bersama

Pow Wow Hawaii 2012 Recap

Pow Wow Hawaii 2012 Recap by graffuturism

After a long flight home and being able to watch Hawaii disappear in my window from the plane. I started to finally contemplate a bit. Since arriving in Hawaii it seemed like a whirlwind of activity. After trading in my sweatsuit and sneakers for shorts a shirt and flip flops I was ready to get started. Luckily Mike Bam had arrived a couple days before me and had sorted the paint issues so I was able hit the ground running.

Recently being involved with Art Basel Miami I had some idea of what an event like this might entail, but I knew this was far from being Art Basel. Pow Wow Hawaii was more than an art fair or street art festival. I had heard from fellow artists Samuel Rodriguez and Aaaron de la Cruz about Pow Wow Hawaii 2011. So when the opportunity came about to be able to take part in this event, I knew right away I had to check this out. After getting in touch with Jasper Wong who was directing the project and doing some research about last years event I knew this was going to be something special. I had been asked so what is Pow Wow why are you going to Hawaii. I really didn’t know how to answer that question at first. Street art festival, graffiti gathering? It was much more than either of those things. Only after a week in Hawaii with amazing people was I able to grasp what Powwow Hawaii was and is.

After talking to many of the original Pow Wow artists over a beer at the headquarters Fresh Cafe I had learned that last year only 9 artists took part. This year more than 40 artists made the trek and that is not counting all the artists that just showed up. After quadrupling in size you might think that a once close circle of artists might lose some of its closeness during the event. This was far from the case. With a local headquarters established at the local Fresh Cafe the artists were able to congregate exchange stories and rest from long days of painting at a common area. The reoccurring theme that set in day after day was community. The community of artists, the community of blogs such as Arrested motion, Complex, Booooooom, Hypebeast, Acclaim, High Fructose, but most importantly the local community. Volunteers, photographers, Video crews, supporters, partners, hosts, land owners, spectators, and too many more to mention Pow Wow Hawaii had it all. With trans-formative murals taking place around the Kakaako neighborhood of Honolulu from too many artists to all mention the neighborhood was transformed.

After a couple of days of Mural painting around town the artists finally were able to celebrate with some live painting and collaborating at the opening party at Loft in Space Gallery. From International artists to talented Local artists, graffiti artists, street artists, and so much more. All labels were left at the door and that same concept of community took over. We are very appreciative and lucky to have been a part of such a well organized and important event. After the dust settled the liquor wore off and walls were given there final touches, we celebrated with a traditional luau at the Pow Wow compound on the North Shore. Gracious hosts, amazing food, and old fashion writers bench style circles where legends, rising stars, and everyone in between sat and exchanged black books, stories and a memorable moment we wont all forget.

Kul Sign 2012 Recap

Our friend from Sungai Klang Art Gallery, Malaysia sent us some pictures of
Kul Sign Festival back in February 2012.

Kul Sign Festival debuted in Dec 2010 to rejuvenate the Klang River bank’s
concrete walls with new artwork (although the location was already a grffiti mecca
amongst local & regional graffiti artists in he past few years,
when graffiti art started to boom in KL).

Swatch Malaysia worked with 2 popular local graffiti & mural artists- Katun & Monche
for 2 pieces of Swatch-inspired artwork for the artists to express themselves and for
the public to have photo opp with. Here are the artwork.



Jaybo Monk “Silent Listen” @ Soze Gallery Opening Pictures



When you think about graffiti, painter isn’t always the first thing that comes to our mind. A painter in the sense of Velazquez, or Titian, or a force like Bacon or Malevich. Graffiti rarely is spoken in the same sentence. Jaybo Monk is one of the exceptions. Jaybo Monk is a modern day master. Not only does he work primarily in spray paint, but he uses it in the spirit of a painter. Jaybo has been a long favorite of ours so it was great to see him finally make the trip to the states, and what better trip to arguably one of the hottest art markets in America Los Angeles. Thanks to Carlos Gonzalez we were able to get these great photos of the opening.

Jaybo Monk capped his 3 week residency off at newly launched Soze Gallery with an opening solo exhibition titled “Silent listen”. We had the pleasure of spending the weekend before the opening with Jaybo. An amazing man Jaybo has a quality in him that is rare. Coined Jayboisms you can see the manner of the artist as a humble person understanding the complexities in life and how fast things can change. Jaybo having been through hard times himself knows first hand the importance of the moment. His paintings reflect this moment and how important it is to seize it.  A paradigm shift within graffiti, a move towards painting. As we mentioned earlier a graffiti painter who utilizes the tools and tradition that they have grown up with, and to bring something fresh to it. To take these tools, mix in some new techniques and paint with flesh and shape form is amazing to be able to witness. We watch with intrigue as the doors have opened and a new form of art emerges, Jaybo is one of the artists at the forefront of this movement.

With beautiful form, contorted compositions and flesh, “Silent Listen” delivers a strong showing.

The White Canvas Project: LA Jam



We had the pleasure during our quick trip to Los Angeles of catching up with She One. She One was doing a little bit of live painting on LA women which we weren’t able to photograph. Here are some of the pictures we were able to shoot from the opening. The opening titled “THE LA JAM” was part of Supremebeing’s white canvas project. She one’s installation constructed of found materials, signs and a firebird carhood stood out.  All around a solid show from a mixture of graffiti and street artists which included works and installations from Leba, Food One, Koffinz, Memuco, DSC Death Spray Custom, David Walker & SheOne .
