This Week’s Dranks and Draws “G O D S”

Dranks and Draws
” G O D S “
featuring Muse Teak (@freethabeast)
Saturday, March 25th, 2017
3-7pm 18+
1 AM Generator (1523 B Webster Street, Oakland, CA)

D&D1AM (1)

1AM Generator is pleased to join Hella Massive in hosting the monthly ‘Dranks and Draws’ sketch night this Saturday, March 25th, from 3-7pm at our Downtown Oakland Generator Space. As platforms for freedom of speech through artistic expression, both of our organizations aim to bring together and provide a positive space for the Bay Area’s creative community to collaborate and generate! For our upcoming Dranks and Draws, we feature Teak (@freethabeast) as our muse for the concept ” G O D S “. Come join us as we welcome the community to interact with and explore creativity over exclusive, speciality cocktails amongst like-minded individuals.

Dranks and Draws is a community gathering sketch event for artists and non-artists alike. Featuring a live muse with a fresh concept and sounds curated by resident DJ Trackademicks, it is a modern twist to the traditional figure drawing done in art class. Each individually designed, every installment offers a unique experience (ambiance and aesthetic) for every patron, every time.

The series is a collaboration with some of the Bay Area’s leading cultural forces including lifestyle boutique/barbershop/art gallery Massive, art collective Haus of Godspeed, Events Producer Computrblu and lifestyle brand Dreamers Rule. The seven curators come together to present a new experience for Oakland’s network of creatives, inspiring collaborative artistic expression everywhere.

“We view art as a form of therapy, so we want our patrons to leave feeling better than they came in,” says Massive co-owner and event co-creator Kevin Correa.

Street Art & Social Change: ±MAISMENOS±

Lisbon-based artist, Miguel Januário, has made a name for himself in the Lusophone world through his graffiti interventions in modern urban cities. This project is titled ±MAISMENOS±, which translates to ‘more or less’ in English, is a series of textual pieces spray-painted onto urban walls, each of which makes humorously witty statements that carry somber undertones. For the viewer who can see beneath Januário’s humor, there is a profound cynicism towards modern life in the cities.

Januário’s work proves that the even smallest change in a common phrase can provoke thought. Often, the artist focuses on the capitalist conquest of society, and what society loses as a result of this. The main loss emphasized in ±MAISMENOS± is human rights and recognition for the lower classes; however, Januário also decries the impurity of the government as a capitalist tool, writing “Vende-se Portugal,” or, “Portugal For Sale.”

What truly comes out of the project is a sense of polar opposites: the black of the paint and the white of the walls, the seen and the unseen, the privileged and the unprivileged. Januário’s work has been seen in Portugal, Brazil, and Angola, and has directly led to political change, including the dismissal of the district commander for the National Republican Guard of Portugal.
