Twentieth Century Boy

Gr2artshow

On Wednesday September 30 (7PM to 11PM), in Hollywood, Japanese artist Masakatsu Sashie pays tribute to one of
Britian’s legendary pop stars and the original glam rocker T.Rex (Marc
Bolan) in the Twentieth Century Boy show. A life-long fan, up and coming artist Sashie is presenting an
exhibition of original paintings using endorsed images of the rock
star’s likeness. The works feature Sashie’s signature hovering orbs
that blend autobiographical details with culture references, past and
present, ranging from video games to Japan’s quintessential vending
machines, in an intricate painting-style that is grounded in a pop
aesthetic.

Teaming up with Darren Romanelli (Dr. Romanelli), Eric Nakamura (Giant
Robot), and Rolan Bolan (T.Rex’s only son), this one night event will
feature new paintings, video projections and a special musical tribute
to the first in glam rock, T.Rex. A percentage of the proceeds from
Twentieth Century Boy will be donated to the Light of Love Foundation,
an organization established by Rolan Bolan and his mother Gloria Jones
that raises funds for the Marc Bolan School of Music and Film soon to
be built in Sierra Leone, West Africa.

Gary Ham’s Bat

Batty_Ham_2

Gary Ham has posted up photos of his new handmade wooden bat figure. I love the Jack-o-Lantern shirt. Just in time for Trick 'r Treat!

With Halloween around
the corner, I couldn't help but be inspired to make this batty guy.
He's a whopping 14" high with an 18" wing span! I decided to be a
little more advanced in my wood working this time round by using
dowels, so everything can rotate and be disassembled or replaced at
will. I used black stain and acrylics to help bring him to life.
