Interview Series: Vogue

From Oakland to San Francisco and beyond, the Bay Area is a mecca for art — both on the streets and in the galleries. Without a doubt, one of the more prolific street artists to emerge from the scene is local native Vogue TDK. Over the last thirty years Vogue has used his art to communicate with the rest of the world. Like many of his fellow graffiti contemporaries, Vogue got his start by producing illegal out-door art that often breathlessly combined aerosol paint with the world around us. In the 80’s he started the skinny cap technique which has become the norm for others looking to create finer detail.

Whether it be dangling from a sign high above a freeway or painting a mural on the side of a building, Vogue has continued to develop and evolve his style. On May 31st, he’ll be opening his new show entitled: “How We Do”. The exhibit will showcase works that look at the streets from the perspective of a hustler’s life — low-riders, spray cans, trains, and city-scapes will pay homage to Vogue’s career and life. More importantly, the works will be done photo-realistically using aerosol on canvas. Expect to see plenty of intricate street life iconography such as train tracks, car culture, and graffiti artists.

Recently, we caught up with Vogue TDK. More at the jump:

Who is Vogue? Tell about yourself. 

I am a spray can artist from the Oakland area who is also a business owner, entrepreneur and family man who dabbles in pin striping and airbrushing.

When did you start painting and what inspired you to pick up a spray can for the first time?

I started painting in late 84, early 85 and I was inspired by the documentary Style Wars which I saw on a PBS channel. After watching this it opened my eyes to a whole new art form that was youth driven. Read More »

Daniel Clowes and Os Gemeos. Pablo’s work shows creative improvisation with visual story telling through figurative connection between characters. He keeps the cartoon tradition of adding surrealism to his drawings. Even though there’s an aspect of chaos and disorder, this series follows a very basic formula. Also the images are not to be seen symbolically, there is a level of calligraphic detail to the lines, which makes it distinct from basic cartooning or illustration.
