Scroll down to see the large scale installations that Mike Shine and AJ Fosik have been working on while we hang this three day exhibition.

Even in the tightest of quarters, Mike Shine has managed to construct his signature “Art Shack” with the help of his sons and friends. The structure is solidly in place, but we all know that’s only half the battle. We anticipate long hours of painting the walls, inside and out, from Mr. Shine before the fair opens tomorrow.

Mike Shine isn’t the only artist putting his best foot forward this December. Just outside of Booth 50 near the fair entrance, AJ Fosik has installed one of his most intricate works to date. The brightly colored, three snouted creature is one of his strongest pieces of the year, if you ask us.

We are also happy to have Morgan Slade, Casey Gray, Aaron Nagel, Ramblin Worker, and Jesse Hazelip in Miami with us. We appreciate their efforts to be here, showing devotion to their craft and support of the gallery. Stay tuned for updates and we hope to see you in Miami this week!

Stencil Artists Tell All

Since our Stencil Show artists are a rare breed, we decided to throw something fun at them in place of a traditional interview. We let the artists tell their story through a mad lib, passing the story amongst themselves for a complete mix up. Read on to see how Tes One, David Soukup, Casey Gray, Ernesto Yerena, Chris Stain and Adam 5100 got to where they are today.

Stencils Galore

All the town is talking: what is this Stencil Show? Spray paint, hooligans, amateurs? We are here to nullify all rumors about the vandalizing nature of stencil art, and we have the artwork to back it up. David Soukup, Tes One, Casey Gray, Ernesto Yerena, Blek le Rat, and Chris Stain are in the house and you better believe they are pushing the boundaries of what a stencil can do. Check out a few detail shots below and join us this Saturday, October 10th for the opening reception of The Stencil Show.

Revolutionary Prints: El Che by Ernesto Yerena

Like Che Guevara? Sick of the same old image you see on every tee and poster? Well Ernesto Yerena has something for you: two unique prints of the revolutionary icon in red and green. The image is bold yet personal, looking into a different side of the Che we all know (or think we know) so well.

Bear of the Dead

Furthering Ernesto Yerena‘s exploration of Latin culture is his stenciled collage, “Bear of the Dead,” a play on the Mexican holiday that we all know and love. This piece is a collaboration with Philip Lumbang, an artist who knows his bears. We love the highly decorative Mexican style combined with the sharp contrast that Ernesto is known for.
