THH70 – NEW Website. NEW Artwork. NEW Vibe. NEW Shows. CHECK IT OUT! :-)

First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! For my initial blog of 2012, I want to wish you, your family, friends and loved ones a very Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year! 

2011 was a fantastic year, and I have high hopes that 2012 will even be better! That being said, there’s A LOT going on over here at THH70 HQ, so let’s get right into it:

MY BRAND-NEW WEBSITE IS UP!!!! That’s right — after months and months of planning (and procrastinating), the new site is now online! First off, you’ll notice the brand-new URL — — after the last 4 years or so of having a different domain, I felt it was time to get back to basics, so is back on the grid. As my style and technique has now hit a crossroads, my new series of work will be somewhat different than the last couple years (more on that below), I felt the new site should reflect that. It’s much more minimal, elegant, and straight to the point. No bells and whistles…just ART.  :-) I hope you enjoy it! 

One of my closest friends just happens to be an extremely talented graphic & web designer, so I thought it would be a new experience having a professional designer have at it. If you are in the market to have some graphic design or website work done, I HIGHLY recommend my friend, Joey Seeman.  I told him what I needed, what I wanted, and not only did he ROCK it, the site ended up exceeding my expectations (thanks, Joey!!!). To check out his work, please go to

The work I am in the midst of creating for 2012 is noticeably different (at least to me), but still “100% THH70”. After years of perfecting my technique of multi-layering paint, color, chemicals, and other nutty stuff, I thought it would be a challenge, as well as fun, to scale it all back, bring it back to the basics (see the running theme here?), and embrace a “less is more” aesthetic. So, for the new work, you’ll be noticing a reduced color palette, more Abstract elements, and in some cases, no text! I hope you enjoy the results…so far, I’m really excited and happy with them…I can honestly say that I haven’t felt this artistically invigorated and challenged in quite some time. Like a close friend tells me all the time, “It’s time to get out of your comfort zone”…so, that is what the latest canvas is titled, albeit in French.

This first piece I am releasing is a radical departure: purely Abstract, no text, and a more monochromatic color palette (layers of black, white, silver, and gold):

“zone de confort”

mixed media on gallery-stretched canvas

36 x 36″

This piece is available NOW! To inquire about the piece, E-MAIL ME.  :-)




I have 2 group shows on the calendar at the moment, with more shows to be added shortly:

Opening Saturday, February 25, 2012“Femme Fatale” Group Show at Cella Gallery, North Hollywood, CA. I’ll be exhibiting a brand-new 24 x 24″ canvas at this show. Co-curated by Stephanie Chefas and Nicole Bruckman, I’m really excited about this one, as it’s co-curated by Stephanie, editor of the AWESOME art blog PLATINUM CHEESE (you might remember, she profiled me on the site last year). I’d been bugging Stephanie for a while, telling her she needed to put her OWN show together, so I’m happy she finally assembled a kick-a** roster of artists to exhibit.

Opening April 2012“LYRIC” Group Show at 323East Gallery in Detroit, MI. Curated by AMAAAZING artist and friend Glenn Barr, last year’s show was so successful ( I was in that one as well), that they decided to do it all over again! The line-up last year was PHENOMENAL, so I expect this year’s to be equally insane, if not more!

I’ll be posting again soon as more work is completed and more show news pops in…I hope this update finds you all doing well, and that you’ve survived the holiday season in one piece! As always, many thanks for your continued support!

Now, what are you waiting for…GO CHECK OUT MY WEBSITE!!  ;-)


Best regards,


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.
