Sorry for the lack of bloggage lately, been a bit busy. That being said I have managed to get most of the bugs out of the online shop that is on schedule to open at the first of the year.
Enough with the words here are some random photos…
Got this in the mail the other day, if you don’t know about tree and leaf make sure and check them out.
I wish I were half as talented as Brandon is at his age.
Screen Shot… Make sure and follow us on twitter for discount codes and such.
When we were young we looked upon everything with curiosity, and approached everything completely unaware of limitations. For some the cost of learning to be practical is paid for with ambition. For others, youthful energy never ceases, limits are never set, and we left to witness the resulting achievements of those who never quit looking at the world through young eyes.
Wiley Robertson is impractical, relentless, and will never grow up.
His youthful energy and limitless ambition seem to multiply as he gets older. Whether on the streets or in the studio, Robertson never stops, ignores all obstacles, and seems to make as much as he breathes, at times leaving one to question which of the two is keeping him alive.
Robertson uses stickers, free hand spray paint graffiti, stencils, marker tags, wheat pastes, hand painted 2 x 4’s, and at times combines multiple of the mediums to announce his existence wherever he goes. His imagery matches the diversity found in the mediums used. Wiley seamlessly navigates inspired sign painting, portraiture, pop cultural imagery, letter based graffiti, community inspired iconography, and more.
Robertson’s studio work is a vibrant collision of imagery from his various street interventions and will be on display Friday, December 2nd, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the East End Studio Gallery.
October 31st is upon us, the last chance to own a one of a kind original artwork for absolutely free!
In case you missed it, here are the details.
That’s right, exactly what the title suggests… FREE ART. Every month I will be giving away an original piece of artwork here on IWishThatItRain.Com-absolutely no strings attached. You do not have to like me, follow me or even pay me. I am even covering shipping to the Contiguous United States. I would be happy to ship elsewhere, but would have to ask for some compensation. I am, after all, a working artist.
I want to promote the ownership of original artwork and give everyone who wants an opportunity to posses art of their own.
Simply send an email with your name and the words “Free Art” in the subject or message to firstname.lastname@example.org. At the end of the month, there will be a random drawing. If your name is drawn, you win! I will then send you an email asking for details on how you would like to obtain your new piece of art!
For the month of October, I am offering up a 24″ wide by 42″ tall, spray paint on wood, portrait of one of my (and I am sure yours, too) all time favorite super heroes… Batman. The piece will come framed in a professional, all wood frame, ready to be mounted. Emails for this piece will be accepted up to 11:59pm CST on October 31st. I will draw the name and the winner will be announced within the next day.
This is open to anybody and everybody so tell your friends and post this link in your blogs, facebooks, twitters, whatever.
