ANTZ AND CLOGTWO BACK TO SCHOOL









Antz and Clogtwo from RSCLS decided to give back to community by producing a 15m by 3m mural at Coral Secondary school's art room.
Antz and Clogtwo both painted giant owls and pigeons in rendition of their own style, accompanied with a mass pile up of art materials. The mural contains two owls which represent the wise teachings and knowledge that is passed down from teachers to students. And the pigeons represent the artistic freedom of a young's mind. Both artists took 4 days and total of 150 cans to complete the mural.

THROUGH THE LINES, A Solo Exhibition From Arkiv Vilmansa




Over the past several years, artist Arkiv Vilmansa’s iconic character, ‘Arkiv Instant’ has made the artist a household name within the lowbrow art and toy culture scene.
In his first U.S. solo exhibition, Through The Lines, Arkiv looks to develop his signature image, while debuting new characters and continuing to explore his unique style of combining the surreal and theatrical with playful and whimsical caricature.
Through The Lines is the first exhibition to chronicle Arkiv’s Vilmansa’s career during the past several years of artistic growth and budding success. As the title suggests, the exhibition is centralized on the theme of overcoming adversity or “rolling with the punches.” Many of Vilmansa’s characters are seen embroiled in conflict, be it through physical restraint or combat. True to his technique, Vilmansa’s deep and curvaceous lines slice across each canvas, while radiant, harlequin waves sweep your eyes up and around the bodies of unusual, yet beautiful creatures. As a result, Vilmansa has developed his portrayal of colorful fluidity and struggle and opposition. Through the lines marks a pivotal turning point in Vilmansa’s career, where past challenges are overcome and the process of moving forward begins.

About The Artist

"Indonesian artist Arkiv has been painting, illustrating and designing cartoon like figures since 2005. Shortly after finishing his Bachelor degree in Architecture he plunged into the art world citing his love for drawing figures as his inspiration for this change of career path. Arkiv had a strong debut with his first vinyl figurine titled Arkiv Instant. After Arkiv Instant’s large success, Vilmansa was presented with many exciting opportunities including a redesign of Mickey Mouse for Disney Asia.

His description reflects the same silliness and complexity of his characters. Smiling cartoons flipping you the bird. Figures strangling each other. Teddy bears hanging on a rope are just some of the oddities that Arkiv paints with cheery colors and his signature curvy and graphic style."

Exhibition Details
What: Through The Lines: New Works From Arkiv Vilmansa
Where: Vincent Michael Gallery
1050 N. Hancock St. Suite #63 Philadelphia, PA 19123
When: Exhibit runs March 4th to March 31st
Opening Reception Friday, March 4th 7pm – 10pm
