Not in Kansas anymore: A Tribute to Wizard of Oz

Dorothy, the Tin Man and Toto.

Since its publication in 1900, L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has become one of the most well-known and loved stories in American popular culture. The book has since been followed by 13 sequels, reprinted several times, adapted to numerous stage plays, musicals and films, including the iconic 1939 MGM adaptation. Timed with the release of Disney's much anticipated prequel, Oz: The Great and Powerful, we have invited an exciting group of talent to celebrate the many adventures, adaptations and century-old legacy of Dorothy and her friends in Oz.


I'm glad to be part of this new show with my friends from Nucleus and being able to share this events with my buddies Amelie Flechais, Cory Godbey, Israel Sanchez, Joey Chou, Lorena Alvarez, Nicolas Delort...

Curiosities

 Mike Yamada and Victoria Ying all rights

Talented couple Mike Yamada and Victoria Ying have been collaborating on animation-inspired illustrations for some time. Most recently, the duo set out on a Kickstarter.com book project that successfully funded more than ten times their original goal. "Curiosities: An Illustrated History of Ancestral Oddity" is the tale of a brother and sister who inherit an old, mysterious mansion and all of the odd relics that are housed inside within. In celebration of the book's release, the couple has teamed up with Nucleus to present a very curious exhibition! I'm very honored to be invited by Nucleus, Mike and Victoria to be part of this exhibition. I will post soon my contribution.

You can check the exhibtion infos and awesome artists lineup, here.

ALL TOGETHER NOW: A TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES


My little piece for the show "Childhood Melody" (me listening my first beatles album using my father's records player)

Thanks to Jessica for the invite and all my friends at Nucleus Gallery!

Fifty years ago, Richard Starkey, a Liverpool drummer that we now know as Ringo Starr, joined what would become the single most influential rock band in history. John, Paul, George and Ringo, The Beatles as billions have come to know and adore, was born in August of 1962 and quickly took the world by storm. To say that no musical act has as heavily impacted modern music and popular culture as much as The Beatles would be an understatement. Their songs, which consistently preach the message of love and togetherness, have left a legacy that has long outlived the band's ten year run. Their undeniably fresh and experimental sound sparked a musical revolution: a turning point that would set the bar for every artist that would later follow. Though The Beatles have sold upwards of an estimated billion albums worldwide, secured their place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and still hold the record for the most number one singles in the United States, their genius extends far beyond said achievements as they continue to influence a new generation of fans half a century after their humble beginnings.
