"Peter Gronquist’s 2013 installation “Self-Portrait,” at Brooklyn’s ArtNow NY. An effigy of the artist is suspended in midair after apparently being catapulted through the windshield of an actual car by the force of a head-on collision with a deer. A Converse sneaker has been knocked off one of his feet, and shards of glass hang ominously around him on strings. Gronquist explained that the project took months to complete, and involved finding the old car on Craigslist and discovering the difficulty of smashing it up (he showed ARTINFO footage of slamming it into a tree). Gronquist said the idea of depicting a crash as a self-portrait came to him in a near dream state several years ago, and is reminiscent of the way the creative process feels sometimes. The asking price on the work is $150,000.”  - via blouinartinfo

"No Can Left Behind" show by Can Love at 941 Geary Preview… check out the show tonight!

June 16 - July 28, 2012

Canlove is an LA-based Graffiti Recycling Organization founded and managed by creative partners DJ Neff and Paul Ramirez. The non-profit kicked off over two years back, but the guiding inspiration had an earlier birth. Neff, a graffiti artist who started in the nineties describes the idea as part of a natural evolution of his interest in spray paint: “I wanted to understand the can better than anything - to make it do everything. There are too many cans everywhere to not use them,” says Ramirez, “Canlove is much bigger than a couple of people. We’re going to need a lot of help to bring our bigger vision to life.”

"No Can Left Behind" will be the first large scale installation of the artist collaborative. This show exemplifies the full process of graffiti itself, taking the tools that have enabled street art culture and allowing them to stand alone as new visual art.
