Brewery Art Wall 2018 Part 5 Three Dimensional
This next group of artists from the Brewery I have combined because they all are kind of connected to the three dimensional space.
First is the Knob Job artist Chuck Overcash. His work is the result of a fascination with the tactile experience of control from knobs used in the aerospace industry. Made from resin, he makes his art to be touched.
Overcash shared his space with the portrait artist Rikki Niehause. Niehaus paints many subjects but his main love is portraiture. He also has done a series called “Swedish Landscapes” which are portraits set in everyone’s favorite Swedish furniture store. His style is influenced by German and British painters of the twentieth century. To continue with the three dimensional theme of this piece, Niehaus also has worked with painting on a tangible touchable usable medium, a dart board case, the wooden box on the left.
The artist Komy Takashi Komiyama, or just Komy, is a Japanese artist who uses his talent to create beautiful skateboards, bags, clothing and wall art. You can see more of his work on his Instagram. His work seems to influenced by the skateboard culture, anime and indigenous California heritage.
The next artist is actually a collection called “Wall Space.” As the name implies many of the works hang on walls, but there were a group made by Scott Froschauer of street signs with socially conscious messages.
The Wall Space collection contains works from over thirty artists ranging from urban, street, pop to modern abstract. For the Brewery several had a political theme and are bit clairvoyant. I am certain the painting of Kayne West was made way before the recent events in the headlines. See their website for individual artist information.
