MINIVILA - TINA VILA - HOUSE OR VILA

We had it all at Westside Culture Club on Sunday 21/09/2014.

Fashioning an Object, aka Westside Community Culture Club - where the exposition and opening event take place, is exactly what our own mission was based on: Glamorising New West by taking something out of the spot-light and turning it into a self-made stylish fit for all: old, new, foreign, local, lost and confused.  Westside co-operative in oprichting is a new organization taking residence at Burg. De Vlugtlaan 125 and is a part of De Vlugt broedplaats, where SAMA are an active bestuur member.

First in the series, the five days exhibition will be called (CON)temporary Urban Lifestyles: FASHION and dedicated to exploring the gaining virality of city-making alternatives in a fluid world without borders.  Fashioning an object is exactly what multimedia artists today do. Our inspiration is drawn from the intimate knowledge of recent collaborations such as Prada/Stinkfish, Orticanoodles/Guess, Spok/Pepe Jeans, Kenor/adidas, JR/NYC Ballet.  These are just some examples of contemporary independent cross-media productions, whereby urban art begins to gain heavy influence on our livestyles through fashion.

WINDOW to each other’s worlds
OPENING to learn about each other and share our stories and histories
HISTORIES of nature, culture, arts and amusement*
GLORY and its Wisdom, Patience and Perserverence*
MURAL where all worlds collided : to step inside yourself one must step out of the box*
[Old] Barcelona [Spain] [New] Bogota [Colombia] [New] [West] Amsterdam [the Netherlands]

Danny Recal & Pez Pescao

Artwork is called GLORY and it’s based on the Dutch Monalisa - The Milkmaid by Vermeer.

We picked this work for 2 reasons:

- extravagancy of colours, especially blue 

- debate around using technology to achieve photorealistic effect

Both artists are painting free style, without projectors or stencils and are using only spray cans*

This work is a Glorious Celebration to all Masters around the world*

Klerkx International Art Management Presents:

THE REUNION: ICY and SOT - ILL - FRZ - MAD 

Opening Exhibition: 
Saturday September 13, 16:00 – 19:00 
Address: 
The ABC Tree House, Voetboogstraat 11, Amsterdam
Exhibition Dates: 
Sept 14, 11:00 – 18:00 
Sept 15-16-17 by appointment (06 81352448)

On Saturday, September 13 at 16:00 opens at the ABC Three House - the gallery branch of the American Book Center in the Voetboogstraat 11 in Amsterdam (close to Spui) - the exhibition “The Reunion”, featuring Iranian brothers and street artists ICY & SOT and their friends and fellow artists ILL, FRZ and MAD. 

In November 2011 Klerkx International Art Management (KIAM) showed the work of Icy & Sot for the first time in Amsterdam (the show was sold out). In 2012 the brothers moved to New York, where KIAM hosted their second exhibition in a gallery in Broom Street (in collaboration with Ali Salehezadeh). This year Icy & Sot will be travelling to Europe for the first time (before their stop in Amsterdam they take part in the big street art festival NUart in Norway). And even more special: they will meet with their friends from Tabriz Ill, FRZ and MAD after a long time and attend the opening all together. Watch this clip, made in 2011 in Iran, where you can see them working together: http://vimeo.com/32698651

On Friday September 12 we will host a special evening with these five Iranian friends at Pakhuis de Zwijger, Piet Heinkade 179, Amsterdam: a public interview, clips, live painting and music. Join us!

For all inquiries, please mail to manuelaklerkx@gmail.com or call: +31 6 81352448

Klerkx International Art Management and the artists want to thank the American Book Center and Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam for their kind collaboration.

hikimori is an outcast

when I met David
he woke up that tingly feeling in me
that someone famous once described as
“I don’t want to be a member of the club that easily accepts me”

David DID NOT ACCEPT ME at first site… But I am proud to admit that I have earned his respect :) He is my Guru and I am so proud to have worked under him and learned from him.

For a big part of our Street Art Museum Amsterdam, does come from David and, OF COURSE, Nathalie’s inspiration. They were one of the first, together with Stinkfish and Btoy to tell us: Do It*

Am so proud … so so proud*

Getting Horizontal in Nieuw-West (Windmill Windup)

imageYes, it’s all about your body and the wind.  Amsterdam Nieuw-West is a perfect place to explore the power of us, especially when it comes to sports, cultures and nature.

Neither Nieuw-West nor the Windmill Windup event (celebrating 10 years anniversary now) are on the map of iAmsterdam yet, but it’s not for long, I’m sure.

The news of this cult, cheap, organic and full of exciting people from all over the world, the biggest in Europe gathering of professional hobbyists specialising in Ultimate lifestyle, and in particular: Frisbee, will spread before you know it.

image

Few Facts:

  • over 2000 people came to the event from EurAsia to USA
  • 90% of the competition is self-sponsored
  • this is a non-profit volunteer driven venture
  • all the products and food are hand-made and organic
  • there is plenty of food and activities for all ages and sizes

When a friend of a friend of a friend asked me to host a Russian couple, of course I said ‘yes’ : another chance to talk about my Street Art Museum :)  But instead, they have educated ME about MY hood!

Here’s France vs Ukraine:  Dyki Crali have the coolest pants :)image

Attire is important but is self Sponsored.  I also got a t-shirt!

Food is good.  Not a lot of choices, but healthy salads, smoothies, good coffee and a bar are all at hand’s reach, AND it’s organic and hand-made on a spot. This means Fresh and Nutritious!

image

It is a shame that I’ve only got a glimpse of the activities, but Next year, I’m buying a ticket and definitely hanging out for the rest of the event!
