Art Whino, What? WHat?


You just wait for March! Met painters from texas tonight...been a huge fan of SCOTCH since Shane introduced me to his art back in the VA days...and when my BFFL RELAX fell in love with his louis vuitton and Darth Vader piece...DON'T MISS

CUTTHROAT’s strident stencil works center around politically charged and power-packed monochromatic imagery. His subject matter rings close to the locals of his upbringings, which took him across the Mexico border and back again, in a familial search for a better life. His images refer to the cultures that have underlined his everyday experiences, giving the viewers a rare inside perspective on what we may only understand from a distance. See it in person at the Art Whino Gallery!

His signature stencil style is the product of what he calls “a detailed and involved process,” which serves as a Zen-like experience for the artist. Methodical attention, he says, is necessary to be satisfaction with his pieces. “I know that there is a beginning and an end. I always hope that my audience appreciates the detail in my work. If they can notice that, I can be content.”

On Your Mark, Get Set, MOW!

Mike Ratel is a filmmaker in the Washington, DC metro area and a buddy of mine. In the past Mike has used his Super 8 movie camera to shoot footage of rock bands and of his travels. Mike's inspiration has been indie filmmakers such as Jim Jarmusch and Robert Rodriquez. A long conversation with Mike tonight and a love for any project that someone has their full heART in, I appreciate. And so, this leads us to Lawn Mower Racing!

On Your Mark, Get Set, MOW! is a tale of hope, redemption, and lawn mower racing. Can the sport of lawn mower racing save lives? One racing family in Michigan is hoping that it can. The family have lost five members of their family to Huntington's disease, a hereditary neurodegenerative disorder which 200,000 Americans are at risk for. Through the use of interviews with members of congress, health care professionals, and those whose families have been affected by the disease On Your Mark, Get Set, MOW! is not only a story of lawn mower racing but an expose on Huntington's disease and the efforts to find a cure.
