New Webstore

In preparation for my new t-shirts and hoodies that I have been working on, I’ve moved my webstore from Bigcartel to Shopify and put all my old stocks of prints and t shirts on the new webstore at reduced prices, sizes and stocks are very limited. (With the exception of the large Mandala print, this is a A/P and the last of these prints from years ago) No code needed as these will be marked at these prices till they are gone.

Thank you for your support.

Numbers 6 and 7

After the amazing response I received for the paintings in the A state of Matter exhibition (see previous post) I found myself inspired and motivated to continue the Raven series rather than moving on to another subject matter.

And here I find my self with Unitled Ravens VI and VII – this is unlikely the end of this.

I managed to capture the whole process of Raven VI and turn it into a time-lapse.

Here are a few photographs of the process, look for some raven prints soon.

 

Thank you for looking.

A State of Matter Exhibition

A State of Matter -1On Thursday, November 9, “A State of Matter” opened at the Volcom Garden in Austin, Texas featuring work by Arik Roper, John Baizley, Jacob Bannon, and myself. I am very fortunate that I helped bring this exhibition together with the help of Michael Sieben, the gallery curator.I have been inspired by Arik, John and Jake for years, and when the opportunity arose to have a group exhibition together, I had to make sure it came to be.

Although our work is different and comes from a multitude of backgrounds and disciplines, it has a familiar thread running through it.
It is this thread that I wanted to explore and place in a state of physical being, placing our identities together for a short period to allow them to become a solid presence.Below are images of the work in the show, all are available for purchase unless otherwise sold. please contact Esteban Rey for information-  erey1975@gmail.comWork by Thomas Hooper.
