More THH70 Gallery Shows Added + News + New 24×30″ Painting!

Hello, everyone!

Well, another year has flown by, and we’re now deep in the midst of Holiday Season 2010!

Lots of new developments over the past few weeks over here, so I thought it was time for a new entry to get everyone up to speed…and awaaaaaay we go:

  • March 2011 L.A. Gallery Show – I am very proud to announce the 3 artists that I have selected to be a part of my upcoming show at Hold UP Art Gallery in Los Angeles, opening Saturday, March 5, 2011! The artists are Sfaustina, Jeru Gabriel, and Allison Torneros! Not only are all three of them members of AOA, the artist collective I started in 2001, but each of their work has elements of theme, technique, and narrative that provide a balance along with the work I will be showing in the show. This upcoming exhibit will explore some pretty distinct areas of New and Urban Contemporary work, and I cannot wait for you to experience what the 4 of us have in store for you! For more information on the show, check out this previous blog entry I posted.
  • January 2011 NYC Gallery Show – Coming next month in New York City: I am thrilled to be participating in the “Postcards from the Edge” charity exhibit taking place January 8-9, 2011, hosted by CRG Gallery! Postcards From the Edge is a Visual AIDS benefit show and sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper (4 x 6″) by established and emerging artists (some extremely well-known artists are taking part, such as Jeff Koons, John Baldessari, Ross Bleckner, Yoko Ono, and over 1500 more!). All works are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The works are signed on the back and exhibited so the artists’ signatures cannot be seen. While buyers receive a list of all participating artists, they don’t know who created which piece until purchased. All proceeds support the programs of Visual AIDS. Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving the legacy — because AIDS IS NOT OVER! For those of you that will be in NY, I hope you attend!
  • *JUST ADDED* March 2011 Detroit Gallery Show – I will be exhibiting a new painting in “LYRIC – A Group Show” at Gallery 323 East in Detroit, MI, opening March 19th! This group show, curated by famed artist (and friend) Glenn Barr is a special “themed” exhibit. Music and its lyrics can always stimulate our emotions and it can have us contemplating a visional narrative. Lyrics have been known to be the fodder of some of the greatest works in the world. This exhibition will illustrate the artists personal transcription from a songs lyric to canvas, and each artist will be creating a special 12 x 12″ (LP album cover sized) work for the show!
  • New Painting – I’ve been painting like crazy for all the upcoming shows, as well as to replenish my own “inventory” with the new, more heavily layered style of work I’ve been digging into. The latest creation completed is entitled “blather. wince. REPEAT.”, a 24 x 30″ canvas (image & detail shots below). The piece is up for grabs and available on my website. Please E-MAIL ME directly for pricing and availability.

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. www.thh70online.com www.myspace.com/thh70 www.aoacollective.com
