Last year’s romp into Portland’s First Thursday Art Walk yielded only a couple notable things. The best of them all, though, was Tokyo’s OriginalStyle at Hellion Gallery. He documents his favorite skate spots around Tokyo, and overlays acrylic type on intricately-drawn backdrops, but in a way that doesn’t feel trite or forced. OriginalStyle isn’t incorporating catchy slogans into his work to fall victim to the latest fad; it’s just natural.
The artwork is up until January 29th, 2011! GO CHECK IT OUT. (Damn, I wish I could afford one of these $500 beauties.)
Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.
