Athen B. Gallery is proud to present their latest exhibition of a very under the radar artist named Leighton Kelly who is based in Oakland called “All of the Things” which opened this past Saturday, July 15th. You might recognize his unique sculpture style from some of past group exhibitions at the space. More images and info after the jump!
Our man Mear One recently sent over a new piece called “Planet X” which was recently exhibited at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival (@LIBfestival). He describes this work as being “a mythological gumbo of global mythology that predates our written history” referencing various celestial events documented by the Ancient Greek, Vedic, Sumerian, Egyptian, Native American, Tibetan, Chinese, Nordic protocultures. More image and another awesome time-lapse video of the over 300+ hours MEAR spent painting this piece after the jump!
Our friends over at Athen B. Gallery, just started a series of 4 walls with the city of San Leandro, CA. First up is Oakland Artist Kelly Ording. The mural is compiled of 5 different reds that break apart the bright blue background. The mural itself brings a lot of life into a neighborhood that lacks color.
Located on Arnerich Automotive Service who has been living and working on the same street he was raised on. We were excited to work with Kelly on bring some life into the local business such as Arnerich Automotive Service located at 14995 Farnsworth St. San Leandro, CA 94579. Photographs by Dominick Gray and Brock Brake.
