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.

Eine, Simply Good

Posted in Walls by BLDG on August 3, 2010

I’ve always been drawn to art that makes an impact on a particular movement. It’s hard sometimes because this art isn’t always the most technically mastered stuff. I guess coming from a design background I really respect the power of an identifiable style. Shepard Fairy, love him or hate him, has mastered a style. The London Police have turned a simple smiley face into an immediately recognizable icon. Space Invader owns the Rubik’s Cube. All of these artists have risen above the crowd because of this basic principle. Its almost like a kick in the pants how quickly you can recognize these artists. One particular kick for me has been Eine. I’ve been following his work for a while now and he has continued to stay true to his path. When you look at Eine’s installations there is no question who created it. For that, Mr. Eine, I tip my hat in your general direction.

The London Police Print Release

Posted in Walls by BLDG on July 23, 2010

The London Police have made their Kentucky encore with this latest print available exclusively at the BLDG. The print titled “Meeting Rod at the Olde Town Tavern” was created while TPL masterminds Chaz and Bob took up residence at the BLDG the week prior to their show. Many late nights were spent at the Olde Town Tavern which became the local bar of choice for the guys from Amsterdam. This hand pulled print on Arches 88 measuring 14″x22″ will be available for purchase on July 29th at 1:00pm EST.

CLeon Peterson Print Release 4/14/10

Posted in Walls by BLDG on July 12, 2010

The BLDG is real excited to release a new print series by artist Cleon Peterson. For those of you unfamiliar with Cleon’s work he is know for creating anxiety-riddled worlds fueled by violence and chaos. Cleon produces a world where deviance is the norm and his characters are forced to navigate through a lawless terrain. Both prints measure 13.5 x 17.5 and are printed on heavy 100% cotton paper using ink so bright it may cause blindness. The prints will be released sharply at 1:00 pm EST on July 14th.

Posted in Walls by BLDG on November 13, 2009

Prefab77’s print, “Britannia” has already come and gone and sold out in under 10 minutes…these prints go beyond prints and become small editions of originals on paper, heavy paints, inks and varnish that soak into the paper and give it its own character and life… real beauty’s to look at.

BUT there’s a sunny side…

There are 3 AP’s that are overly hand embellished, with black, gold and red spray dustings and drips. They will be available first at the show tonight. If there are any left, there will be a draft for the remaining prints. If you’re interested email roman@BLDGrefuge.com to be put in the drawing. They are priced at $250 a piece.

Digrent “High Life for the Soul” Contest End

Posted in Walls by BLDG on October 12, 2009

The Digrent “High Life for the Soul” contest has officially ended and the print is officially sold out. As the demand for Digrent’s work steadily increases, I’d recommend getting your hands on one if you ever have the chance. His latest work heavily utilizes hand-cut stencil work. The prints are reproduced from an original work, retaining all its overspray and soft-edges… a fine piece to see in real life.

For the winners: The tubes ship out tomorrow, so keep your eyes on the mail and watch out for anyone lurking around your postbox.

For the… not winners: No worries. Digrent releases a brand spankin’ new print tomorrow at an unknown time.
