"Like a bullet or bomb, paint will leave its own mark.
Spray paint means a lot of different things from artist to artist. To me, a can represents this
bristling container of pressured potential, which can be used impulsively as much as it can be used considerately.
Unlike my previous 'can' pieces, this was less about quantity and more about the detail I could push out at this scale, needing to use over 70 stencils across the series to build the scenes up.

Here is some info straight from Black Book Gallery's site: "ASVP is a New York based artistic team of two that began working together over 8 years ago and has more than 20 years of combined creative experience. The team has created paintings, murals and poster art that has been displayed in major cities across the world including London, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Hawaii, Zürich, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Varanasi India as well as New York City. “The clean look and feel of the work comes from our commercial training in graphic design and advertising, but for us, many of the actual images are reflective of “a break-out” from a certain type of creative jail that we both found ourselves in. We felt like we were in the Creative Matrix—and we finally figured out how to unplug.” ASVP’s work collages eastern and western images from multiple influences including; retro advertising, pop and comic book culture, mixed with bold typographic elements. The team uses dramatic multi-layered compositions with bright tones of pop-inspired color. “The more aggressive imagery in the show comes from a defensive, almost resentful place, and more strongly shows the idea of us “breaking free” from our past to create things that are more honest. Other images in the show exhibit more restraint. When viewed together, the diversity of the work shows an honest depiction of our voice as a work in progress.” ASVP’s first solo exhibit comes on the heels of two recent group shows including “Bushwick Open Studios” and most recently, “Can’t Hear the Revolution” at Kunsthalle Galapagos. “Down to Earth” is comprised of nearly 40 silk screened pieces on paper and canvas with hand and spray painted elements in many of the works. Exhibit opens at Black Book Gallery on September 2nd and runs through September 30th."
"I believe Roselle is a true American hero. From the moment I read her story and viewed her photographs, I knew I had to paint her. I believe art should have meaning - a purpose. Roselle's story alone warrants a worthy tribute, but the fact that her story - which is one of bravery, loyalty and love - can come full circle and, through my art, help even more people couldn't be more fitting."
The Roselle’s Dream Foundation and Artist Ron Burns have teamed up to help turn dreams into reality for blind children and adults. With your help, a piece of art can have the power to change a person’s life forever.
40% of the net proceeds from your order will help blind children and adults obtain the technology they need to not only excel in school and at work, but to live out their dreams. In return for your generous support, you will receive a fine art print (shown above) of Roselle hand-signed by artist Ron Burns. Additional ordering options are available below.

This info. comes straight from 1xRun's newsletter: "A few thoughts on this piece from a journal Ray keeps by the easel while he paints: "This looks pretty simple really. Where does it begin, where does it end? It moves forward with the clearest of sight, the strongest of passions, but something... something holds it back. I thought about urban farming. What will a place of darkness think of so much light? Will it remember? Either way, we know it's moving forward." – Ray
This Saturday (Sept 10), Urban Roots and 323East are teaming up for a group art exhibition* where artists interpret Detroit’s urban farming movement in the present and what this landscape may look like in the future. In coordination with the exhibition happening in Michigan, we selected one of our favorite pieces from the show to be a limited edition print.
Ray Domzalski is a freelance illustrator in Detroit, Michigan. We first met Ray at a student show at the College for Creative Studies. A few of his impressive paintings are currently exhibited at 323East gallery, and they invited him to participate in their exhibition this September 10th. Along with dozens of local, national, and international artists, Ray’s painting reflects his impression and interpretation of the urban farming movement that seems to be popping up all over the country. Here in Detroit there has been such a change that a feature documentary was created – thus the name Urban Roots."

Edition of 50 6 colors on archival cream paper Signed and Numbered ———– Here's Chuck's description of the piece: "My favorite revolutionary political posters are from the Cuban Golden Age of political graphics from the late 1960′s and early 1970′s. There is a colorful fusion of psychedelia and political message. I did this poster in the spirit of clear, bold, direct communication. I wanted to communicate the “visible” world and the “hidden” world that everything in objective reality depends on. Like the world of “ideas” and the world of “objects.” Or the world of spirit and the world of life. The individual struggle and the human struggle. It’s a sort of yin yang idea…. There’s this greater submerged “underground” reality – it is larger – breaks over the bounds of the poster. It could represent spirit or humanity. The above ground living flower is represented as transitory (it is losing petals in the wind) - but it’s roots go down from the heart to the heart of the submerged reality – where it is fed – and eternal. The hard part was to show something this complicated in a simple and pleasing graphic." ———–
"Adam Highton's "Skaters" is a three-color screen on a 330gsm antique white printmaking paper. It was printed in Providence by The Head Light Hotel. The artwork measures roughly 9" by 12". The reverse side of each print has been stamped and numbered. The artwork ships with a corresponding certificate of authenticity.
Adam has chosen Macmillan Cancer Support as his artwork's charity in honor of Kathy Purton who is currently undergoing treatment for throat cancer. Macmillan works to help improve the lives of people affected by cancer, both those living with cancer and also their families and carers. Their primary focus is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer. $250 dollars from the sale of Adam's artwork will be donated to the organization."
It's great to see money going to a wonderful charity. Be sure to support Adam & Macmillan Cancer Support.
