Just in time for the hollardays I’m LIQUIDATING my entire fine art collection! 40% off some of the dopest paintings that would make the perfect gift. Yea, CRAZY right?! Act soon because this beast of a sale is only going on for 2 weeks(12/5/11-12/11/11)!
On June 5, Awesome Academy presents new works by Philip Lumbang for one night only. The show will take place at Angel City Brewing from 6-11pm, and will feature live painting by Philip Lumbang, performances by George Watsky and Hugh the MC, and the introduction of a super-limited Awesome Ale beer. Bears and beer… I’m there!
I fell in love with the concept of the logo. The instant recognition and attachment a person has towards a single image is something incredible. These bears are calculated simplicity, they are made to make you happy. Thats what I wanted to get across with this show. The bear’s form is in the forefront, juxtaposed against a mishmash of found objects. From old palates to retired stencil board – the objects that were used as the canvas have history. Bangs, scrapes, rust, chips and a myriad of other imperfections compliment the bear’s youth and child-like demeanor – building depth into each single piece of work. Like the split second it takes to see something – process it into your mind, relate to it and critique it, this shows longevity will imitate it. Being a one day show, I wanted to get across how easy it is to make art. I am a devoted advocate of people getting together and being creative, I want this show to inspire you.
