Art opening and live art exhibition featuring: Arf, Kenya Scott, Breath From Above, El Maldido, Edo Escobedo, Emeral Jade
“Recreating the world as I see it…blooming unexpected, unpredictable color and variation brought to consistency with intricate replications that solidify the color and flow.”
“Grime and lines. Always pure, never cut.”
“Kenya is a big goofball who wants to change the world. He loves cartoons, comic books and graffiti and it’s reflected in his style. Making art keeps him sane. See also: burritos and sex.”
“Conceptually driven mix media massacre”
“A multi-medium artist currently residing in Oakland, Ca. Originally from Southern California’s desert area, El Maldito brings a series of illustrated characters titled: “Quates”(Twins) that express the inner calamity of two Mestizo(Mixed) twins of European and Indigenous identities. For more art by EL MALDITO visit facebook.com/
“Scratching primal urges while still trying to maintain humanity, a dog frantically chasing it’s own tail only to bite itself in the ass.”

Up next at the loin we have “Sea Change” a solo show by Cody Miles. Opening night is April 14th. Sea Change will be up through the 1st week of May.
San Francisco based artist Cody Miles shares a collection of ink and graphite drawings. Using a graphic illustrative approach, much of the work is focused on the natural beauty found in death and the transient qualities of the natural world.
We’ve previously hosted Cody’s work at various group shows and at “Indelible”, a trio show, which also featured work by Patrick Mathews and Bagger43. We honestly can’t say enough nice things about this guy!
Cody miles is an artist based in San Francisco. Working as a commercial illustrator for games and entertainment, his personal work draws inspiration from classical motifs and lowbrow art, with an emphasis on bold design in ink and graphite.
