An ambitious project involving numerous international contemporary artists and disused Military airplanes made it’s debut last night at the Pima Art and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona. The Boneyard Project: Return Trip will include artists Andrew Schoultz, How and Nosm, Nunca (Brazil), Retna, and Faile who will all paint their own individual airplanes, along with cockpit from Saner (Mexico).
The concept for resurrecting the no longer active airplanes was conceived in spring 2010 by Eric Firestone, and organized with curator Carlo Mccormick. Also on display will be previous work from Eric Firestone Gallery’s Nose Job show that took place last year featuring artist such as Aiko, Bast, Crash, Daze, El Mac, Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Futura, Erik Foss, Tara Mcpherson, Richard Prince, Lee Quinones, Kenny Scharf, and many more. We suggest that if you are near Tuscon to not miss this event!
Thanks to Fred Caron and En Masse for the video!
Fred writes… “In September 2011, a series of chance encounters led us on our first international adventure. En Masse traveled down the hot, dusty road to California for the sun-drenched, palm-shaded beachfront property of San Diego and its official Contemporary Art Fair. Ann Bertchold and her partner, the acting directors of the SDAF, invited us to create a work in a 12’x12’x12’ kiosk. This little box became a home away from home for four days of black-and-white drawing bad-assery. I can’t tell you what an absolute pleasure it was to work meet a couple of seriously stand-up citizens!”
Thanks to Dabs Myla and Carlos Ganzalez for the video!
The artist duo known as Dabs Myla paint one of their most ambitious walls up to date in Culver City, California during Christmas 2011, but we get an inside glimpse into the process, what the wall means for them, and how it relates to a tradition very close to their hearts.
Thanks to Vietnam World Tour and El Mac for the video!
Viet Nam The World Tour brings El Mac to Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam. Mac shares with us his personal inspiration for creating art and along the way, we get to see Mac doing what he does best at a live event, painting in a completely new style that can only be seen in Viet Nam!
