This was the first time I got to see a lot of works by these artists in person and it was really cool to see the art so many A-Listers in one space.

“Life Cycle” by Trustocorp

"Life Cycle" by Trustocorp. Now showing at the Opera Gallery in New York through November 11, 2011.

All I can say about Trustocorp’s latest exhibit “Life Cycle,” which is on display at the Opera Gallery in New York, is that it’s a must see.  There are roughly 25 works of art and all of them are hilarious commentaries on our rapidly crumbling society.  Like the work of Ron English, each work is masterfully created from an artistic point of view and is fused with the hilarity and hypocrisy of human behavior. Their parodies of established brands in our society are all genius and below are two brief examples of why you cannot miss this exhibit.

God Help Us

Long before #OccupyWallStreet was sending a message to the world, artists such as the Trustocorp collective were taking the message to the streets.  There is no better time to show this exhibit than now as we are living in “Fall of the Roman Empire 2011.”

Fat Camp

Laugh, think about the turblent times we are in and DO SOMETHING!  You can start by visiting the Opera Gallery in New York located at 115 Spring Street.  “Life Cycle” by Trustocorp runs until 11/11/11.

Saber - The American Graffiti Artist. Now showing at The Opera Gallery in New York.

Saber is a graffiti legend.  His 1997 work on the bank of the Los Angeles River was the largest graffiti painting ever.  Spanning  250 x 55 feet, it remained visible (from the ground or via satellite) for 12 years!  The artist has a new solo show at the Opera Gallery in New York entireld “Saber – The American Graffiti Artist.”

The opening night reception drew an all star crowd including Ron English, Jon Burgerman, Anthony Sneed, Beau Stanton, Sweet Toof and of course the guest of honor – Saber.

There is so much detail and color in Saber’s works, you will definitely want to swing by the Opera Gallery and see these wonderful works of art in person.  The Opera Gallery is located at 115 Spring Street in Manhattan.

An Encounter with Mint and Serf

This is not as fancy as one of my completely random celebrity/rock star encounters, but it’s not any bit less amazing.  At the Opera Gallery in New York on April 29, 2011, over 15 artists were on hand to sign autographs for “The 3D Art Book” by Tristan Eaton.  The book features works from artists such as Mark Ryden, Travis Louie, Tara McPherson, Shepard Fairey and the list goes on and on.  The Opera Gallery had many images on display and just when you think seeing these works of art by this impressive list of artists could not get any better – wait until you see them in 3D!  The legendary graffiti team Mint and Serf were on hand for the reception and they were both totally cool when I gushed to them what an inspiration they are.  A fun fact about Mint and Serf:  collaborating as The Mirf, they created the first ever graffiti based vinyl toy!  If you have 3D glasses, put them on and enjoy Mint and Serf’s piece from the 3D Art Book.  Thanks again Mint and Serf!  Respect!
