The Billboard Art Project-Corona, CA

XXIII on Interstate 15 South in Corona, California 12/2/2011

The Billboard Art Project is a non-profit 5013(c)(3) organization dedicated to allocating time on digital billboards in cities across the United States and utilizing them to showcase the work of visual artists.  Each city where the Billboard Art Project occurs exhibits artwork that is mutually exclusive from other cities.  This project is a rare and incredible opportunity for artists to reach the eyes of people that only major corporations and shady lawyers have access to on a regular basis.  This project is made possible through donations.  To make a tax exempt donation to the Billboard Art Project click here.

Studio Visit: Gerri Davis

Gerri Davis is an artist that I met while we were both showcasing our paintings at a group exhibition at Lyons Weir Gallery in Chelsea back in 2009.  She is an excellent person, a dangerous painter to watch out for, and she just got a new studio in Manhattan which I visited this past weekend. 

Oh!!...There she is!

She lives and works in NYC. Her work is extremely intriguing and she paints with incredible skill in watercolors, oils, and inks, she exhibits all over New York City, has curated exhibitions, designs her own clothes, look at this piece!  

          This oil painting is absolutely enormous, 96 x 92 inches.  

This is a work in progress of Ryan and Trevor Oakes.  Two more mind-bogglingly incredible people that I met through Gerri who I will dedicate a post to hopefully sometime in the spring after they complete their flawlessly executed plans for art world domination.

Uh Oh!  Wait!  There she is AGAIN!

Gerri Davis's jaw dropping studio space! 

Her next exhibition in January at Bridge Gallery on 98 Orchard Street between Broome and Delancey the first week of February through March 15th.  I'll be at this show, come have some wine and cheese with me and I'll introduce you.  It'll be fun.  If you want to see more of Gerri's work visit her here and keep her on your radar.

The New Website

I have acquired a new website specifically to showcase the non-objective paintings and sculptures of the Kwadrilaterals series.  I bid you a warm welcome to KwadwoAdae.com

This Kwadrilaterals site will now be a blog where I can get the chance to showcase my work more in depth, including other artists via studio visits, art happenings, gallery openings, my personal fashion trends, and keep you informed and posted of events of the art world through my eyes.

You can also find me on facebook, twitter, and linkedin where you may take the opportunity to view different works that I create.
