Opening Night Recap: Eddie Colla & Bask’s “Nothin Nice”

Thank you everyone who came to the opening reception for Eddie Colla & Bask’s “Nothin Nice”! We were excited to see Eddie and Bask fans, other artists, and friends of 1AM at the reception. The evening started off with a giveaway of 50 original small works by Bask. Inside the gallery, Eddie Colla’s striking portraits stood side by side with gestural text-based works by Bask. Eddie’s “We Are Shadows, And Night Falls” lit up the entire gallery after sunset, truly one of the highlights of the show. If you missed the opening, the “Nothin Nice” will be on display until August 18th… Swing by to see what all the talk is about!

1AM Artist Spotlight: Kopsky of Lords Crew

Kopsky's "Leader of Ramen's Dissection Studies", on display at 1AM gallery now!

Kopsky’s “Leader of Ramen’s Dissection Studies”, on display at 1AM gallery now!

French artist Kopsky traces his beginnings back to the suburbs of Paris, where he was born and raised under the artistic influence of his painter father. Though always surrounded by art, Kopsy discovered spray paint in the mid 90’s and began to explore its many applications and benefits. In addition to learning graffiti the “classic b-boy way,” Kopsky started studying art and moved to the Mediterranean coast. Since then, he continues to experiment with different styles of street art to “color walls across the world.”

Kopsky’s expansive, large scale work captures the balance between uninhibited spontaneity and minute mastery of detail. He works with characters, symbols, and letters in an effort to enter a realm of “dysfunctional imagination,” where he can create art that is fresh and previously undiscovered. Since 2011, Kopsky has represented “Lords Crew” and the British team “After School Klub”. By dedicating himself to constant experimentation and discovery, Kopsky delivers messages that are colorful and unprecedented–an endless quest for “the fresh effect”.

Check out more of Kopsky’s work in “Legendary: Celebrating 30 Years of Lords Crew” until July 14th! For catalog requests & inquiries: artsales@1amgallery.com.

Eddie Colla’s “Last Resort” with David Young V & Nite Owl

We loved showing Eddie Colla last summer so much that we’re doing it again! Last time we visited his studio, he told us about his travels to the Salton Sea… Now he has joined David Young V and Nite Owl following the last traces of winter in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The trio visited an abandoned ski resort, read the full story here on 1xRUN! And catch his new work at our San Francisco gallery alongside Bask’s this July.

Opening night recap: 123Klan’s “Style Is The Message”

Thank you for coming to celebrate the opening of 123Klan’s new solo show, “Style Is The Message”! The gallery has taken on a life of it’s own… the duo hooked up the entire space with murals, Band1tism gear, and even some 123Klan furniture. 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!

 

San Francisco! Join us tomorrow for the very special opening reception of 123Klan’s solo show, “Style Is The Message”, from 6:30 – 9:30PM. Along with an insane collection of new original artwork, we’ll have silkscreen posters & limited BANDIT1SM gear available.

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.

Scien has flown in from Montreal, and we’re ready to celebrate… See you tomorrow night! (1000 Howard @ 6th)
