New Sheehan Print

Posted in Walls by BLDG on July 6, 2011

Wow, talk about a dry spell on the ‘ole blog. Needless to say things have been crazy busy at the BLDG. So getting straight to the point, here it is, The third and final print in Tommy Sheehan’s epic series. It was fitting for Tommy to end his series with a little piece of England. The print titled “Underground” is a 3 color hand printed screen print. The print is signed/numbered and is an edition of 40.

The print will be available at www.BLDGrefuge.com on Thursday July 7th.

The Calm During the Storm

Posted in Walls by BLDG on April 4, 2011

High winds and rain that appears to be coming from the ground has put a slight delay in Vhils arrival at the BLDG. Stay tuned, we have some pretty wild ideas bouncing around for an epic print and mural project. In the mean time enjoy these classics:

New Print From Hargo

Posted in Walls by BLDG on February 4, 2011

The BLDG is pleased to announce the second collaboration and print release with the street’s most famous Warhol appraiser, Hargo. The print titled “CFYW, 14th Street, Miami”, is based on one of several installations viewed by the art loving masses during Art Basel Miami. Hargo and The BLDG agreed that the legacy of this epic install should live far beyond the reaches of Basel and so history has been made.

 

On Deck, Hargo

Once again the Sheehan print’s did not stick around very long. All orders are currently en route to their final destination. We have one more print left in that series so stay tuned. That brings us to our next fancy print by artist Hargo. The print, based off an installation piece done in Miami, will be available for consumption sometime next week.

The Wait Is Almost Over!

Posted in Walls by BLDG on January 12, 2011

After much anticipation then next print in Tommy Sheehan’s series has been printed. The print will be available at the refuge early next week. The last print went like a wild fire so stay tuned.

Season’s Greetings From The BLDG

Posted in Walls by BLDG on December 17, 2010

Just in time for the holiday rush we had a very special little helper swing by the studio. Though not quite tall enough to pull her first print, she still manages to put our squeegee’s in the darndest of places.

4 Days In Amsterdam

Posted in Walls by BLDG on September 27, 2010

It has been an amazing few days of travel. We have had the great fortune to visit with old friends, meet new friends and add some unforgetaible memories to the ole’ book of life.

(Meeting up with Chaz & Bob, the masterminds behind the London Police for a little pool action)

(The most amazing Indian food male sauna combo in all of Amsterdam…honestly this food rocked!)

(En route to Brussels for “Ladies First” art opening at Art Space Leguit gallery. Train Bingus anyone?)

(Lads spotted next to some lady boys)

(A lot of hard work in preperation for the opening…trust us, we can empathize)

(Amazing art…I tip my hat to you ladies)

(ummmm more please)

A big shout to Chaz and family for a great time and place to crash. Another big shout to the newest all girls’ group of artists for gracing these eyes with inspiring paintings, installations, textile and rockn’ energy.


Don’t Hit The Kids!

Posted in Walls by BLDG on September 15, 2010

This reminds me of Julian Beever’s work (no relation to Justin). I give this campaign an A for effort but am interested to see how many drivers swerve into an unsuspected tree.

“Turkey Hill” Print Release

Posted in Walls by BLDG on August 19, 2010

It has been a while since I have released a print of my own. I decided to take a step back from the squeegee and get in touch with my inner artist. Oddly enough, there was whiskey involved…lots of it. I decided to produce a series of prints in which I physically incorporate my subject matter into the print. For this first print titled “Turkey Hill” I mixed 101 proof Wild Turkey bourbon into each color. A pint of whiskey and a few shots later I had the first print in the series. The print is a 5 color edition of 40 printed on 290 gsm cotton paper and will be available 8/25/10 for $35. For all those who are wondering, yes this print does in fact smell and taste like whiskey.


Vhils

Posted in Walls by BLDG on August 6, 2010

Vhils has quickly become a crowd favorite in my book. I think what really catches my eye is when people push the process. Vhils takes a pretty classic stencil cut technique and puts his own personal spin on it. He incorporates nature and other found elements into his color palette. He even carries these principles into his screen prints, which often times include bleach as one of the colors. I think this video really sums up Vhils style and approach to his art.
