“Hand In Hand” / acrylic on ping pong paddles mounted to masonite / 18″ x 24″ (total size)
Yes, ping pong paddles. That was the challenge and inspiration for my latest piece. Which has got to be the opposite of my recent project the Kings billboard.
I chose this medium to actually be a part of a bigger collective show that is the Ambiguous Paddle Show showing this weekend, December 12th and United State Boutique in Sacramento. I wanted to depict the relationship with my wife with the imagery and paddles. Unfortunately I will be attending another event in LA, but I recommend you don’t miss this event to see this original and the other works of art.
United State, a DJ/Clothing boutique in Sacramento’s midtown dedicated to preserving the style and culture of the local DJ’s and Emcees has teamed up with Ambiguous Clothing, a raw and edgy brand, to host Ambiguous’ traveling ping-pong paddle art show. This art show has toured the globe, showing the talent of local artists in Brooklyn, Barcelona, Las Vegas, and Paris. This event will be held at United State Boutique and will showcase 40-60 pieces. Art work from local artists, like, myself, Amanda Lopez and John Stuart Berger, as well as, pieces from previous showings will be available for a free public viewing from 6pm to 10pm.
