Game On! Exhibition @1AM San Francisco

1:AM Gallery in San Francisco opened their Game On exhibition where I contributed a few pieces. One was a 7" Coin Up and 8" Dunny combo titled “It Started with a Glance (and Ended with a Fever)".

I also submitted a painting inspired by one of my favorite nostalgia-inducing video games, Metroid. It's an 16x20" Acrylic on Canvas piece titled "My First Crush".. This piece might make for nice art prints in the near future in my store!

Art Without Borders Exhibition

Here is my 7" Munny for the Art without Borders charity show @ Art Whino on February 23. Titled "M=O/C: The Divine Proportions of Irrelevant Symmetry are Tiresome Within the Mathematical Measure of Beauty".
It was inspired by a Mathematician named George Birkhoff, who had a theory that states beauty can be mathematically calculated and measured with the formula M=O/C, or Aesthetic Measure=Order/Complexity, where each variable has multiple factors and every line, shape and form in the piece can be given a number relating to the formula. This is just the basic outline of what Birkhoff theorized.
I've also been trying to paint a toy the same way i paint a canvas ever since i started customizing toys 5 years ago, and this is the closest i've gotten so far. My favorite piece I've done in a long while!

If you are interested in purchasing this piece, it is available directly from Art Whino or by emailing ar@ardabusrubber.com.
