A Counterpoint to the term “Sky’s the Limit”, referring to the idea that it’s always possible to Work beyond boundaries. The statement “Style is the Limit‘l addresses the need for an artist to recognize that boundaries and limitations exist in any chosen art form and that artists need to have boundaries in order to develop a style. Aryz argues that in reality, artists are subject to the boundaries implicit in their chosen technique and that these boundaries are the critical factor informing the way that their style and it’s individuality, is perceived by the viewer.
Aryz [pronounced ar-eez] is a young artist hailing from Barcelona, Spain, where he moved from Palo Alto, California, when he was a Child. He has achieved Widespread acclaim in recent years, due in part to his artwork being featured on Aesop Rock’s recent album “Skelethon” and a recent January 2013 Cover and editorial featured in Juxtapoz magazine.
Perhaps most astonishing of all, a string of stunning large-scale Contemporary murals across Europe, South America and North America. Aryz has been regarded by some as a transformative figure in Contemporary muralism, an artist who has taken the ideals of heavy metal illustration and a legacy of European street art and Combined them into a completely new and unique form 0f public art. He returns to the Bay Area, the place where it all started, for his highly anticipated sequel time Showing at FIFTY24SF GALLERY.

WAREHOUSE 416 • 416 26TH ST OAKLAND • WWW.WAREHOUSE416.COM
FIFTY24PDX Gallery and Upper Playground are proud to present Peeled: a show featuring the dark and detailed work of Portland artist Hill Hudson.
Bringing the cross hatch back one line at a time, Hill Hudson has been professionally throwing ink at paper for years as a Portland Oregon dwelling hipster. He is an illustrator backed by an epic overdose of graphic skateboarding, street art and comic book culture. Enthusiastically capturing very realistic yet stylized and controlled imagery, he’s breaking through the walls of a detailed, old-timey, quill and ink approach, to the popular wit of the new school zombie-loving era we live in. Hill has shown his work from galleries to coffee shops, Juxtapoz.com and zines littering the floors of nerdy kids rooms everywhere.
An opening reception for Peeled will be held First Thursday, February 7th 2013, from 6:00-10:00 PM. The show runs through March 30th 2013.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 1AM is pleased to present “Reckoning”, a group exhibition reflecting society’s obsession with catastrophe, both imagined and real. The collection includes original art by Leon Loucheur, Optimist, Robert Bowen, Pemex, Monty Guy and Chamber Made. Drawing from a wide array of disciplines and cultural influences, these six artists expose a darkening horizon, commenting on the ruinous, self-destructive capacity of human societies. The opening reception is on September 28th from 6:30-9:30pm and is on view through October 27th.
“Reckoning” will feature works that incorporate a variety of styles and techniques, blending highly rendered realism with abstract painting, collage, urban and graphic influences to build mood and dynamic into the narrative of the composition. With graffiti and street art backgrounds, these artists will surprise viewers with this newest collection of works aimed at deconstructing conventional realism and reassembling it with layers of context and meaning.
All of the participating artists have been actively showing in galleries around the Bay Area and abroad, bringing worldly impressions from Ireland, South Africa, Taiwan and more. Explore their imagination and experience their influences through dramatic images and compelling landscapes in the paintings displayed in “Reckoning”. For more information, visit www.1AMSF.com. If you have any questions or would like to request media related material, please email anna@1AMSF.com.
We have a beautiful abandoned ink factory full of over 50 murals from artists like Swampy, Optimist, GATS, Pemex, Nesta, Ras Terms, Del Phresh and many more.
