We had so much fun meeting all you Band1tism fans, and seeing our 1AM friends & family. If you weren’t able to make it, swing by the gallery before June 2nd to see what all the talk is about!

123Klan’s “Style Is The Message” Opens Tomorrow!

Originally hailing from France, this dynamic husband and wife duo is now operating out of Montreal, and they’ve created an entire body of work exclusively for their San Francisco debut at 1AM. The collection is punchy, satirical, and a visual commentary on Bay Area culture, U.S. state of affairs, and the generally unique energy of California.

“Catch Me If You Can” Opening Night Recap

Last night’s opening of “Catch Me If You Can” showcased a body of captivatingly distorted and surrealist work from the French brothers, Ratur and Sckaro. The two brothers share a lifelong partnership of painting in the streets and in the studio–this collection brilliantly reveals their roots in classical oil painting and graffiti. The dynamic and colorful show produced positive energy from existing and new fans of the artists alike.

The French duo have painted side by side their entire lives on the streets and in the studio, battling each other with captivating interpretations of the figure in motion. Inspired by graffiti as well as classical European and Flemish paintings, the brothers continue to push each other towards a more polished style.

Studio Visit

Studio Visit

Each painting of “Catch Me if You Can” is based off a computer-edited photo, usually of the artists themselves. They use the photo as a guide to manipulate depth of field, carefully rendering the foreground while allowing the mid and background to slip away into less contrasted illustrations. As a result, each painting contains in itself a sense of unreality; a dreaminess that seems to push forward out of the painting. The hands of their figures in particular seem to reach out of the canvas. Allying digital work and technical virtuosity, the series questions the painter’s place in our overwhelmingly digital society and challenges the relationship between street art and a more classical, academic current.

Nothing Lasts Forever

Introducing “Nothing Lasts Forever” a solo exhibition by Eddie Colla fresh off an extended international tour, opening August 6th, 6:30 – 9:30pm in San Francisco. From childhood we are instilled with a strong desire to obtain the unattainable – “Forever” as the mark of quality, persistence, or true emotion. We often drag this desire into our relationships, our view of the world, even our consumer habits. It is a flawed aspiration and unrealistic, as it is the desire that never arrives and goes against the natural order of the world.

Since 2005, Eddie Colla’s wheat pastes and stencils have been found throughout public spaces in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Eddie’s work first began to garner national recognition when his street art began incorporating images of Barack Obama throughout the 2008 Presidential election. His growing popularity landed him attention on internet blogs, features in six published books, and participation in the “Manifest Hope Art Gallery” shows at the 2008 Democratic National Convention and at the Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C. Eddie’s designs have been transformed many times over, from stickers, album and magazine covers. His work has also been featured in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, the Huffington Post, the Chicago Tribune, and many others.

“Some people view what I do as vandalism. I assume that their objection is that I alter the landscape without permission. Advertising perpetually alters our environment without the permission of its inhabitants. The only difference is that advertisers pay for the privilege to do so and I don’t. So if you’re going to call me anything, it is more accurate to call me a thief.”

Please join us to witness the opening of this very unique exhibition. For art catalogs or questions email artsales@1amgallery.com
