So....brace all of your elves, as we are bracing ours, because one of the greatest, most humble, and somehow most completely demented artists in the world will be opening his new solo art show at our Zerofriends Oakland Gallery TOMORROW NIGHT, Thursday, Sept 6 from 6-9PM! And how do we celebrate??? By GIVING YOU FREE ART JUST FOR COMING TO CELEBRATE WITH US! But more on that in a minute...
We have collectively been such huge fans of Jonathan Way$hak for years since Dave Correia, Robert Bowen and I met him at APE (The alternative press expo) back in 2001. I was convinced he was the most skilled artist in the world back then, and he's only gotten better.
Tomorrow night (and through the month) he showcases a brand new collection of work that has to be seen in person to comprehend. But if you can't make it, you can TRY to absorb some of the magic by looking at the most emotional jpegs you've ever seen below as we preview just some of his paintings and drawings that will be on display.
Here's all of the info, and we hope to see you there!
