About the project…
There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade.

David Polka is a visual artist and graphic designer currently based in Oakland, CA. Originally from Las Cruces, New Mexico, he is a graduate of the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and has been exhibiting work professionally since 2006.
Drawing inspiration from abandoned and neglected places, stories and people, Polka’s work distills the ephemeral nature of human experience into a visual record of accumulated memories and emotions. Flowing, abstract forms envelop figures weary from loss and hardship in an exploration of transitory connections. Reflecting a myriad of aesthetic influences including Native American art, graffiti, anime, and Colonial and Byzantine devotional art, these images examine how personal interactions are fostered and eroded by adversity, revealing the lines connecting different facets of our existence with irrevocable patterns of life and death, destruction and rebirth.

Endless Canvas and Pop’t Culture Present:
“John Park is an artist and teacher living in Los Angeles, California. He received his training at the Rhode Island School of Design where he studied classical drawing, painting, sculpture and anatomy. His current series is an attempt at reconciling these classical influences with the more urban aesthetic of the Pop Surrealist movement. The paintings themselves are executed in a live, public setting usually in one evening and then taken back to his studio for further reworking and detail work. He teaches drawing and painting at Concord High School in Santa Monica, has three cats and one Tree.” (bio from Think Space Gallery)
