I will be participating in this year’s Pow! Wow! Taiwan, painting on a big wall at the Taipei Artist Village. There are lots of events for the whole week and weekend. If you are near, come say hi and check out some of the murals. May 28 - June 3.
Follow along on Instagram here and here. Facebook here and here.
BLACK AND NIGHT ~ Evah Fan and I will be having a two person drawing exhibition at Shimokitazawa Books in Taipei. The show opens May 31 with a reception from 18:00-20.00.
NOT BIG ISSUE ~ We are also participating in Taipei’s artist book and zine fair, June 7 - 8 with our books and products at the Shimokitazawa Books table.
Black and Night
An exhibition of drawings and small paintings on paper by artists Brendan Monroe and Evah Fan.
5/31 Opening 18:00-20:00
5/31~6/22 / SAT-SUN / 12:00-20:00
Brendan Monroe (USA) and Evah Fan (USA, Taiwan) are husband and wife artists based in Oakland, California. For their fist exhibition in Taiwan, Monroe will showcase recent “Black” ink drawings that are primarily based on landscapes abstracted in topographic lines, while Fan has created a new series of delicate characters floating and dreaming among the stars of the “Night” sky. They are frequent publishers of zines and have shown their work in France, Canada, Sweden and the United States.
日前來自日本的人氣刊物「Knock」也曾於第二刊探訪過這對可愛的藝術家夫妻，來自美國加州奧克蘭的藝術家Brendan Monroe與他的插画家妻子Evah Fan，即將在本月底於下北沢世代店舖舉行微型插画聯展。
這是一個簡單又美好的展覽，關於黑白與線條之間的想像延伸，或許是一個科幻故事的場景，亦或是平凡生活中的逗趣表現。無論如何，每每觀看他們的作品總是能感受到Brendan Monroe內在反覆思考探索，以及Evah Fan對於生活的愉悅開心互補。本次除了繪画作品外，更帶來他們的個人小出版作品書冊一同於店舖進行展售～
