THH70’s Next Gallery Show in Dallas, TX / January 2010 + New Year Wishes!

Hey, everyone! It’s been a couple weeks since my last post. I’m sure the holidays have been as much of a hectic time with you as they have been with me, but I hope you’ve had a chance to spend it with those you love. I just wanted to blog with some official news: my next major show will be next month at The 4th Wall Gallery in Dallas, TX, with the opening on January 14th from 7-10pm! It’ll be a duo show, with my work hanging alongside a favorite artist of mine, Glenn Barr! I’ll be showing 16(!) original works of mine.

The gallery itself is a really cool space. It’s owned by Matthew Abramowitz, who also owns the famous Storyopolis store/gallery in Los Angeles (they are constantly voted the best bookstore in L.A.!). They’re known for bringing artists like Gary Baseman and Mark Ryden into the art world consciousness. A great place! The 4th Wall Gallery in Dallas is the fine art extension. It’s housed in a renovated 100 year old house, filled with many rooms and wood moulding. A beautiful space! And, to be honest, in my opinion, they are the ONLY GALLERY in Dallas, Texas that has the guts to show what is CURRENT and at the forefront of the Contemporary Art scene, particularly on the more Urban side. So, I am really enthused to be in their space. If you’re in, or will be in Dallas, TX on January 14th, COME ON BY! Both myself and Glenn Barr will be in attendance! Below is the flyer imagery for the show, as well as the press release:

The 4th Wall Gallery in Dallas, Texas is pleased to announce the January 14, 2010 opening of a solo show by Glenn Barr, with additional works by THH70. Both artists will be in attendance at the opening which will run from 7 – 10pm. The show’s run will conclude on February 6, 2010.

Glenn Barr’s robots, creatures, and vixens live in a seedy yet swinging 1960’s universe, drenched in the haze of a post industrial hangover. Barr has used elements of pop culture to infuse familiarity to an otherwise parallel reality, where angels and devils alike share the same urban playground. With a nod to pulp art and cartooning, Barr’s paintings are mesmerizing in both their simplicity and depth.

Glenn Barr is one of Detroit’s most celebrated and successful underground artist. His paintings have appeared in galleries from Seattle to New York City. Worlds converge in Barr’s soulfully voyeuristic and subliminally strange imagery as his scintillating visions transpire in scenes taken from subversive underworlds and apocalyptic horizons. The interiors are adorned with desembodied cherubs, morally bankrupt vixens from the darker realm of the spiritual world. Along side these kinky inner sanctums, Barr presents views of the unban landscape as a post-industrial world that could never be or perhaps as a vision of the post nuclear future soon to come. Be it femme fatales or otherworldly scenarios his visuals just might prove him to be this generation’s ultimate erotic/ surrealist painter!

THH70 was born in human form in 1970 in Los Angeles, California, but the persona of his nom de guerre was conceived in 1994 as a stage name for his other career as a recording artist. He is now an accomplished visual artist, with his works in private and corporate collections on every continent. Since 2000, he has sold over 1300 original mixed media pieces, and his website – – continues to receive thousands of hits per month. To date, THH70 has shown in solo and group shows in galleries and museums across the United States and the Caribbean, and has appeared in print and online publications worldwide.

THH70 is recognized for his unique artistic approach that he has branded “Lo-Fi Urban Contemporary”, combining crude painterly techniques and utilizing materials and media (that include everything from acrylics and spray paint to household products like Windex and X-14 mildew remover) with his own style of raw illustration and stream-of-consciousness linguistics. This show marks THH70’s first major gallery appearance in Dallas.

The 4th Wall Gallery is located at 2925 Fairmount Street in Dallas, Texas 75201

As for me, the remaining days of 2009 and beginning of 2010 will be spent working on a large commissioned piece (photos to be uploaded once it’s completed) and getting ready for the show above. But, more than that, it’ll be spent reflecting on 2009: it’s successes and not-so-successes. :-) And where to take it all from there. And to count my blessings for all the support and friendship that I constantly receive from you. This year marked a decade that I’ve been selling my work all over this planet of ours. It’s been such a gift, and as this year (and decade) come to a close, I want to wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year and to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support. Many of the great things that happened to me over the course of this past year were directly a result of your friendship. So, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU.

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!
T. :-)


About thh70

THH70 was born in human form in 1970 in Los Angeles, California, but the "persona" of his nom de plume was conceived in late 1994 as a stage name for his burgeoning music career. Consequently, he is now an accomplished worldwide-selling visual artist, with his works in private and corporate collections on every continent. Since beginning to actively market and sell his artwork in November 2000, he has sold well over 1000 original mixed media pieces worldwide (with that number continuing to grow), and is considered a “P.T. Barnum-esque” showman of marketing and self-promotion, with his website garnering roughly 25,000 hits per month with virtually no third-party advertising. THH70 is known worldwide for his unique artistic approach that he has branded "lo-fi urban abstract graffiti" where, painting on a wide variety of surfaces, he combines crude painterly techniques utilizing materials and media that include everything from acrylics to spray paint to household products like Windex and X-14 mildew remover with his own style of raw stream of consciousness wordplay and text. In the "brick and mortar" gallery world, THH70 and his own blend of visual mania have shown in solo and group shows across the United States at such important art galleries as BLK/MRKT Gallery (now Kinsey/DesForges) in Los Angeles, known to many as the apex of optimum alternative art on the West Coast, and the fashionable Diesel Gallery in New York City. Along the way, his work has been seen in galleries and art houses across the country, beginning with an auspicious 45-piece solo show at the now-defunct Organic Gallery in Silverlake, California. More recently, he was personally invited to be an artist in BLK/MRKT Gallery’s first “Artist’s Annual” in 2006 along with 24 other artists across the globe (including the likes of Jeff Soto, Tiffany Bozic, Dave Kinsey, Evan Hecox, David Choe, Tes One, and WK Interact) that are considered the cream of the Alternative Art crop. The show was meticulously documented, and a hardcover leather-bound full-color catalogue, entitled “BLK/MRKT: ONE”, was published and released across the world by famed European art publisher Die Gestalten Verlag. Additionally, the work of THH70 has been seen in the Alternative Art magazine JUXTAPOZ on several occasions. In early-2002, THH70, sensing an absence in the online marketplace for a central hub for like-minded artists to collectively exhibit their work, as well as to be a jump-off point to inform current and potential collectors of their website, gallery, auction, and sales information, he created AOA – Alternative Online Artists, an online nationwide juried collective of almost 30 artists. Since founded, AOA has selected and maintained a group of the nation’s most diverse, successful and consistent alternative artists (with these artists encompassing the many styles of Pop, Outsider, Graffiti, Fluxus, Dada, Contemporary, Modern, Lowbrow, Urban, Abstract, Graphic Design, and Folk, as well as entering into the now-lucrative arena of limited edition vinyl art toys). These AOA artists (which has included such luminaries as DAVMO, Gus Fink, SFAUSTINA, Nix Toxic and of course, THH70) continue to make ever-crashing waves in the art world. In late 2005, THH70 was interviewed at length on film for the documentary “America’s Chemical Angels”, a film by documentarian Oxana Chumak about the overmedication of children with ADD/ADHD. In addition to the interview footage, THH70’s seminal 2002 painting “RITALIN®” is featured prominently in the film, as well as in it’s promotional advertising. Additionally, THH70 is an accomplished musician/recording artist. He was tour keyboardist for Billboard Top 10 New Age recording artist Nicholas Gunn, and was subsequently signed to a multi-album recording contract by a national record label. In 2003, he wrote and performed on Mr. Gunn’s commercially and critically acclaimed album “Journey To Yellowstone”, with his penned "Nature's Cry" garnering the most radio play of any song on that album. In June 2007, THH70 digitally released an album across the Internet under the moniker ELEMENTAL with his periodic music partner David Damato. The latest THH70 solo album, entitled "demologiQue: explorations in texture" was released in January of 2008. THH70 also has added “voice actor” to his extensive creative resumé: in 2007 he was hired by top animation and video game sound design company Okratron 5000 to voice multiple characters for the Japanese anime series “Glass Fleet – The Legend of the Wind of the Universe (Garasu no Kantai)”. 2008 was an auspicious year for THH70, with multiple shows across the United States, hanging his work alongside artists such as Buff Monster, Greg Lamarche, Josh Keyes, Greg Gossel, Amy Sol, and many other alternative art "heavy hitters". September 2008 saw the release of THH70's first-ever self-published art catalogue - a 94 page full-color book chronicling a selection of works spanning the last several years. He was also a contributing editor to Mad Skills Magazine, an online arts & culture magazine in Europe. 2009 has already begun on a high note for the artist with his participation in a massive Obama-themed art exhibit in the Dominican Republic. The show, which included artists such as Shepard Fairey, Ron English, Ray Noland and others, displayed THH70 as the only artist to be specially commissioned for his work in the entire show of over 80 pieces. In the Fall, he will be including his work in a museum retrospective in the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia. THH70 resides in Dallas, Texas.
