P.T.V. a Group Exhibition

Thursday, June 6th, 2019

Opening Reception: June 7th, 6 – 10pm at Classic Cars West in Oakland, CA

On view: June 7 – 29, 2019

Spoke Art presents P.T.V. – a group exhibition featuring members of
the Bay Area graffiti crew Punks Thugs and Vandals. Including a diverse array of artistic styles,
inspirations and backgrounds, the crew’s distinctive characters are familiar to Oakland and
San Francisco locals, international travelers and beyond.
Starting in 2007, following a San Francisco Department of Public works press conference
proclaiming “It is currently up to the Punks, Thugs and Vandals what artwork goes up in the
city,” a group of friends began writing the moniker as a tongue-in-cheek reference to the city’s
stance on street art. Known for their characters and collaborative pieces, the members of P.T.V.
blend styles and genres to find commonality between “punk, hiphop, ska, reggae and taking
that same recipe into graffiti, politics and fine art.”
PTV characters can be spotted close to home in Oakland and across the US and
internationally in South America, South East Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

Please come out Friday, June 7th from 6 – 10pm for the opening reception of P.T.V. Spoke Art will also
be releasing a new limited edition screen print and enamel pin by GATS available first for
attendees of the opening. For more information, or additional images, please email

ÜBERMENSCH – Ales “BASK” Hostomsky Solo Show – San Francisco, CA

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

BASKCanvas-1AMGallery1AM Gallery
1000 Howard Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

A solo show of works on canvas

Opening Reception: Friday, July 5th, 2013, 6:30 – 9:30pm
Show Dates: July 5th through August 3rd

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 1AM is pleased to present, “Übermensch”, a solo show by Ales “BASK” Hostomsky that opens July 5th from 6:30-9:30pm. “Ubermensch” will showcase works depicting children painted as superheroes on found and weathered surfaces that exhibit an energetic urban art aesthetic. The term “Ubermensch”, coined by Friedrich Nietzsche, refers to a state of being super-human; a state which Nietzsche believed mankind should strive to obtain. Expect to see a mix of iconic comic book imagery and playful representations of children upon panels and box frames.

During his childhood, the idea of God as a form of salvation seemed like a foreign concept, but the thought of becoming a super-man seemed obtainable or, at least, something worth striving for. BASK’s highly textural works of child-like figures upon layered, urban backdrops with vibrant comic book iconography recall the fantastical imaginings of his youth.

Bask’s work has appeared in countless publications in both advertising and editorial capacities. He has been shown in the Florida International Museum as well as the Jacksonville Museum of Modern Art, which also has his work in its permanent collection. In addition to doing work for Death Cab For Cutie, Primus, and RIDE Snowboards, he was recently commissioned for a series of canvases for the backdrop in Iron Man 3.

ARYZ “Style is the Limit” Solo Art Show – San Francisco, CA – April 19th, 2013

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

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.
