Bumbershoot 2010

Here is the word friends for Bumbershoot 2010 Art Section.
179 along with friends will be doing art installations for this years Seattle Festival hosted at The Seattle Center.
Seattle Street Biennale 2010
Curated by NKO
Rainier Room

Seattle Street Biennale 2010 is a selection of Seattle's most respected street talent, featuring large site-specific works by Katsu, Angel 179, Ego, Aerub, Baldman Watching, and Joey Nix. A host of other local artists and crews, including NTG, New Mystics, HBF Crew, Gretchen Bennett, Jesse Edwards, 1+1=3, and Blink and Pars, will contribute smaller pieces to make this an installation that takes viewers on a visual experience that is everything from confusing and visceral to violent and beautiful.

Reflecting the vast subculture known as street art, the methods employed--from spray paint to wheat paste--span a wide range of talents. Seattle Street Biennale 2010 represents an influential cross section of prolific Seattle artists.

Seattle Street Biennale 2010 will also feature video components highlighting Seattle street art locations and artists at work, along with a special edition of Seattle Graf Rag produced as the exhibition catalog.

This will be my second time showing at this Seattle Festival, the first being with BLVD Curator and friend Damien Hayes in a show titled BEYOND FRESH.

I showed beside Peek-a-boo Monster, DVS crew, Jesse Edwards amongst others.

I am very excited about this project and what I will put forth. From the layout specs, I have the pleasure of painting with amazing people such as Joey Nixx, Ego and Aerub. Stay tuned for updates!
