UPDATE: Show extended until May 14th!!
Hard to believe that Remix will close in a week. Luckily we have the web so if you couldn’t make it to Culver City, I’m putting everything on line. Thanks a million to all the artists who participated. If you missed my first post, just scroll down. The exhibit idea: Artists chose any photo of mine they liked and reinterpreted it in their own style.
Jane Dickson, Nunca, Grotesk and Crash all chose the same photo of
Dondi to work form.
Mark Bode chose a character borrowed from one of his dad Vaughn's, underground comic books, always super popular with writers.
Sharp chose this photo of Ken Swift in front of the Wild Style wall. He helped paint the wall and was there when I shot it in 1983.
I met artist Aeon in Bogota when he & friends organized an amazing graffiti exhibition and event called Memoria Canalla.
