Peanuts Global Artist Collective via @Friendswithyou & @Snoopy

Faesthetic friends and cover artists Friends With You send word about their collaboration with the Peanuts Global Artist Collective. As an artist, I am super impressed AND jealous of this collaboration. Talk about a fun project!

“We got to play in the language of Charles Schulz and are launching this project that will spread happiness to Snoopy fans far and wide. We will be premiering a mural of the “lil Cloudy Brown” character we developed, located in the Hudson Square neighborhood, right next to the Children’s Museum of the Arts. There will be a reception today from 5 – 6:30pm which will feature a walking tour of the seven public murals, led by the Peanuts team and project curators, Culture Corps. We’re so honored to be included in this project alongside Rob Pruitt, Kenny Scharf, Nina Chanel Abney, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Assume Vivid Astro Focus, and Mr. A. There will be lots of art and specialty products coming soon so keep your eyes peeled.”

“Convergent Visions” Faesthetic x @SXSW – Faesthetic #15 cc: @upso @krening @joncontino @capitalprinting

3:58 am in art,art events,faesthetic,weird,zines dustin hostetler

I am SO INCREDIBLY excited to announce the next issue of Faesthetic, which drops this weekend at SXSW. This issue serves not only as an art zine, but also as a catalog of SXSW’s art programing. From their site:

The idea for “Convergent Visions” took root in the halls of SXSW in 2017. After a mind-boggling keynote delivered by biochemist Jennifer Doudna, Faesthetic publisher Dustin Hostetler and creative director Karen Ingram bumped into Hugh Forrest, Chief Programming Officer of SXSW. This chance meeting sparked a conversation between Karen and Dustin that became a collaborative effort with the SXSW Art Program.

“Convergent Visions” probes various areas in science and technology through an artistic lens. Overarching themes include Design, Health and Wellness, Social Impact and the Intelligent Future become realized through the creativity vibrating and flowing from the minds and fingers of 30 international artists and designers.

New issue will be available for sale online in April. If you’re planning on going to SXSW this year, it will also be available at the merch booths!

Scott Albrecht at @subliminal_art, supported by @VANS_66

ECHO PARK – Subliminal Projects is pleased to present New Translations, a solo exhibition of new works by Brooklyn-based artist Scott Albrecht, featuring a collection of works on paper and wood.

New Translations is a collection of Albrecht’s latest work showcasing a concentrated evolution in his graphic approach and visual language. The title of the exhibition is inspired by recent events that have resonated with the artist – both personal and cultural – in which the idea of what is current or normal is no longer relevant, and needs to be viewed from a new perspective to make sense of the path ahead.

In this exhibition, Albrecht has found focus in the abstract. The works are largely based in typography but have their legibility masked in a variety of techniques; bold color-blocking, varying depths, non-uniform grids, or a lack of spacing between words. This manipulation can make the work appear pattern-based at first glance; however, on further evaluation the viewer discovers there is no repetition. While his works are constructed from a literary idea, Albrecht’s approach is mainly visual. In a series of new pieces for the exhibit, this process is underscored when he overlays two words on top of one another, and in some instances reverses the order of the characters. The end result renders the characters illegible with the exception of small moments or clues from the two words, visually presenting two ideas that are at odds with each other, hindering any idea from manifesting.

Albrecht’s woodworks are the result of an extensive process that starts with a hand-rendered drawing and requires hours of precision production work. Each piece is made up of dozens, sometimes hundreds of individual pieces that are cut, sanded, painted, and re-assembled, often in varied depths. His largest work in this exhibitions, “Nothing Succeeds in Which High Spirits Play No Part,” (a quote by Nietzsche) measures approximately 5 feet x 2.5 feet and is comprised of 345 individual pieces.

In conjunction with the opening of the exhibition, a hardcover book of Scott’s work published by Valley Cruise Press will be released. The 92-page book features an assortment of work both previous and current, a foreword by writer and New York Times editor, Robb Todd, as well as an interview conducted by artist and galleries, Hyland Mather of Andenken Gallery. The book will be made available through the publisher’s website ValleyCruisePress.com as well as a limited quantity of signed editions through Subliminal Projects.

This exhibition was made possible by the support of Vans.
