It's probably pretty evident that I'm excited to host our upcomming poster print artists Josh Heilaman and Akane Mori. I was delivering another batch of paper for them to customize and got a behind the scenes look at their works/works in progress. Their small studio apartment was literally packed to the brim with works ranging from 2 inches by 2 inches to 12 feet by 6 feet. Akane's ceramic sculptures and pots adorned the window sils and Josh's paintings just about covered all the wall space available. The entry way to their living room has been modified into a continually evolving stuido space overflowing with the bright colors of paint, spray paint, water color, brushes, and art pieces in the works. After seeing how many pieces this dynamic duo has prepared, I am doubly excited about this Friday's poster release. Equally exciting for you is that each of the 30 prints we'll be releasing is completely different. While the screenprints will be identical, the couple have individually modified each piece of paper with vivid acrylic backgrounds bleeding and splattered with bright colors. No two prints will be alike, "Each a unique snowflake" say's Josh. Here are a few pictures from my visit. Please join us at 7pm Friday night for a wonderful showing of Josh Heilaman and Akane Mori, I stand behind their work in saying you will not be disappointed.

Artwork filled the space, even down to these micro masterpieces.
