Swung by the framers the other day with Rod, who just landed in SF, to pick up his works for the upcoming “Moleskine Project” show. Can’t begin to express how impressed we both are at the quality of each and every custom frame. Archival backings, mats, Japanese rice paper hinges, uv-resistant plexi. Top notch job from top to bottom (thanks Dave!)

Oh, and of course, many of the works are double sided and have been framed accordingly!

We will be sending out a full buyers preview for the show in just a couple days. If you would like to receive an advance look at the works, and be allowed the opportunity to purchase before the opening night, please send an email to: spokeartgallery (at) gmail (dot) com.

RSVP via our Facebook Event Page here – http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=120459558032685

In the meantime, check out more pics of the framed works after the jump!

Edith Lebeau grew up in Beloeil, a little town of Quebec, Canada. She was raised in a creative environment; her mother and father are also artists. This helped her to explore her own imaginary world and inspired her to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts at l’Université du Québec à Montreal which she completed in 2005.

We’ve seen the beginnings of the piece Edith is creating for our upcoming “Quentin vs. Coen – A Tribute to Tarantino and the Brothers” art show, and from we’ve seen it’s going to be amazing. Gogo anyone?

Ever since finding out about the works of Mike Mitchell via our friends over at Supersonic Electronic, we can’t help gawk at Mitchell’s sheer prowess over his illustrative powers and scathing sense of satire and humor. These attributes have of course gained Mitchell some notoriety as well as a substantial place as a Tumblr taste maker. Anyhow, we can’t wait to see what he comes up with for our Quentin vs. Coen art show, in the meantime check out some of these classic works of his from the last couple years, enjoy!

We first met Tatiana Suarez a couple years back at Primary Flight in Miami during the annual Art Basel celebrations. Tatiana was working alone, tucked away in a corner of a massive graffiti compound, surrounded by some of the world’s most heavyweight graff artists; she had a pair of headphones on and was sitting there painting a stunning mural with a paintbrush. We asked her how many murals she had created in the past, she told us this was her first. We knew at that moment that Tati was going to make a name for herself sooner or later and thankfully she has already made fast work of it.

Tatiana’s two paintings from our Wes Anderson inspired show, “Bad Dads” were both big hits at the show’s opening last October, and we can’t wait to check out her piece for the upcoming “Quentin vs. Coen” show this April!
