Random Telephone Photos

My phone died a strange death recently and just won’t open up. The touch screen seemed to quit working and it just forces close on what ever operation that I try to open. Make sure to email me your phone numbers at wilbertharrison@gmail.com. At least a started a Flickr account to upload photos to this time so I didn’t lose all those, just some. The Flickr upload may have been what finally killed the phone though now that I think about it.

Wiley Robertson Art Show

Via color
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.

Jessica and her collaborators on the Nelson Atkins were honored during a super amazing reception. They made a community alter that honored José Guadalupe Posada, whose prints were exhibited on loan from the Mexican Consul. Pretty amazing event that I got to go to because Jessica is super badass.

I really thought that I had more pictures from Chris’ batchelor party evening, but the few I have really say it all. We just went and had some beers and laughs in Westport.

When It rains, It pours

Before anything, check out this video. It’s a hand watercolored video.

Sorry it’s been so long, I’ve been really busy. Here’s some pictures of stuff.

Whats good playboys?

This last show had a good turnout…. Here’s some additional photo’s

We certainly were open for business….

Obligatory crowd shots.

Been looking at alot of religious stuff… stole this from Revok’s Blog.

maybe a repost, but it’s still fucking raining.

John Wooden, the greatest coach ever, died recently. R.I.P.

Look close to see work by wiley, jake, tom, brandon, and another tom and jess piece

This is the Viva La Vida show at La Esquina gallery. Happened the same night, still up.

Here’s what I’ve been doing. KCK streetfest. Got to paint by Scribe. Big mistake. He paints fast, real fast. Like really really fast. And everybody and their mom wants to say hi. He gets straight up bothered. Real nice guy, though. He just rolls with it and smiles.

Look he’s done and everyone else isn’t even half thru.

This is what I called done.

and for what it’s worth, these we’re my best in show picks from June.

some of Jessica’s birthday presents…

After the show I got barbeque from a truck with no lights on.

and It was awesome.

The next day I did some live painting at a local restaurant.

And you know my luck….

It rained it’s ass off, I couldn’t use spraypaint inside, and nobody showed up because of the torrential downpour.

Stephanie Shelton painted the sky…

Thanks to Angela Luttrell and FARCU for the gig.

First time in I don’t know how long that I painted with only brushes.

It was nerve racking. I kinda hustled out of there. I really want to paint on it more….

I got more stuff but I am pretty busy. I’ll get back to you on Wednesday…
