PORTFOLIO magazine

LA vs

NY issue 15


PORTFOLIO magazine PUBLISHER Ben Walker EDITOR Ingrid Reeve Artist Portfolio Magazine was created by artists for artists. It features artists from around the world, averages over 46,000 unique readers per issue and continues to grow. In 2013, we decided to start "zooming in" on communities, cities and regions around the world. LA vs NY is our first issue that is “zooming in” on the local art scenes of Los Angeles and New York City. Choosing the art that came from these regions was a difficult task and we really like the choices we made for this special issue of Artist Portfolio Magazine. We’re really excited about this transition and hope you enjoy it too!

Edith Waddell 3830 Glenfeliz Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90039 323.810.9766 waddelledith@yahoo.com edithwaddell.com

Edith Waddell, a Peruvian born artist, lives and works in Los Angeles where she received a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2012. Waddell’s surreal and whimsical paintings are inspired by her interest in subjects such as psychology, mythology, metaphysics and religion. Through her anthropomorphic and hybrid creatures, she develops a critical and satirical commentary on modern society, and controversial matters such as genetic experimentation, overpopulation and pollution. She explores the use of different art media such as acrylic painting, printmaking, and digital art, and at times combines traditional and non-traditional media. Her goal is to force viewers to confront the dark and mysterious aspects of the human psyche, our internal emotional conflicts, and our relationship with our natural environment. Her work is an invitation to an introspective examination and reflection upon our existence beyond the physical world.

Her first solo exhibition, LOLITAS, took place at the Silverlake Art Company (formerly the America Martin Gallery) on October 27, 2012. The show debuted to extensive hype, some of it controversial, for her portrayal of adolescent girls in potentially provocative poses. The photo realistic drawings were rendered from images culled from a Parisian teens Facebook page, thus garnering attention for artist and subject for spanning language barriers and continents. The show was featured in the Huffington Post and Juxtapose Magazine with the Huffington Post calling it, “...an art project for the digital age that could make Humbert Humbert blush.� She is currently working on her next series, tentatively titled ANGELENOS, and has begun a grey scale series of oil paintings.

Chris Burks - Whittier, CA theworldofchrisburks.com

A Southern California native, Christopher (Chris) Burks, creates distinctly American artwork that depicts a kind of “robotic or cybernetic” vision of America’s past or future. Burks’s artwork draws from his experience as a sheet metal worker combined with his love for comic book art, Japanese animation and films like RoboCop, Rambo, and Aliens. Burks's "Cooley Stew" collection is a collection of oil paintings and three dimensional pieces from a graphic novel written and illustrated by Burks himself. It depicts a story set in the New Mexico territory, shortly after the Civil War. These works of fiction feature men of all colors racing steam powered motorcycles. Still a young concept, these cowboys and former soldiers, compete on their machines as an alternative way to deal with the struggles of post war America.

Simon Raab Simon Raab Studio 820 East Montecito Street Santa Barbara, CA 93103 www.parleau.com

Simon Raab was born in Toulouse/France in 1952 and now lives and works in Santa Barbara, California. He was formerly a scientist and engineer and brings his rich technical training in materials to bear on his art. He works in a unique medium, he coined and patented as "Parleau", whose etymology is French for "through the water". Multiple layers of colored polymers are applied to stainless steel and aluminum and then "crushed" or sculpted to give the appearance of an image just under the surface of water. Raab identifies with the symbolism of the grenade, as an expression of disruptive ideas and the change agents from which they come. Recently, he decided to become an art publisher in order to give back to the arts community in Los Angeles. His upcoming project is called www.prettygrenade.com.

An Interview with NYC Artist Col Wallnuts by Ingrid Reeve

APM: Col, we are huge fans of your work. We first became familiar with your work when contributing writer Deborah Johnstone included your artwork in a brilliant art review she wrote titled "Bushwick: at Alchemy's Edge" and we unknowingly credited the collective for your work. We were thrilled to find out it was created by a single artist and enjoyed your portfolio. You've created a recognizable style, what inspires you and/or drives your style? Col: The Bushwick Collective is a great project to be a part of. Joe, who curates the spots, has done a great job of helping transform these buildings to wonderful works of art. I have always tried to keep things interesting and different. Sometimes it has been successful and other times it flopped, but that has helped me get to where I am today with my style. So much around me is inspiring: the art of DeKooning, Johns, Pollack, Stella to name a few, as well as architecture, music, travels, family, friends, everyday life and the emotions that come along with that, to me this creates an amazing mindset for endless possibilities. Brooklyn, NY APM: Tell us about your background. Col: I am a born and bred New Yorker and have been drawing and painting since I was a little kid. Started getting up in Brooklyn and Staten Island around 1993-94. My work consists of mixing 3d styles and silhouettes of my letters that create a wide graphical palette with color and movement. The pushing and pulling of these elements make for very strong markings in my works. Using an open medium of acrylics, spray paints, oils, papers and found objects, my works become emotional with an array of surface life. A lot of my pieces contain heavy strokes, negative space and strong drip work, with the application of various textures and environments. These different elements within each piece create a complex statement that provides energy and life to surface structures and the environment the work has been painted in. With each work I create I hope to facilitate a new and varied interpretation of color and life for the viewer. To me that helps in creating successful works built on emotion and thought. Israel

Israel APM: How did you get into street art? Col: I think I got into graffiti the same way we all did, seeing it up and wanting to do it. Growing up in NY, it was everywhere. Now with graffiti and street art mixing it has really helped the movement grow on such an amazing scale. I am a graffiti artist first and foremost, always focusing on what I see and consider my alphabet. With the progression of the graffiti/street art scene, I am very grateful for all the opportunities of collaboration that I have had and look forward to the ones that lie ahead.

Brooklyn, NY

APM: Do you work mainly in the Bushwick area? Col: I have done a lot of traveling within the states painting and have been given opportunities to paint in places around the world. Some great experiences painting in Germany as well as a recent trip to paint in Israel. In NY I have work throughout the 5 boroughs, some come and go. Some recent works in Israel are in Golan Heights, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. APM: Do you sell your work or do commissions? Col: I am very grateful for being able to sell my works and take on more commissions. As artists we hustle everyday to try and make things happen and survive, it's always challenging.

Queens, NY APM: Yes, it is! Artist Portfolio Magazine is created by artists and run by artists, so we are very familiar with the unique struggles of being an artist. On that note, do you have any advice for aspiring artists? Col: Always believe in yourself and never be afraid to try something challenging. Only you can really push yourself to make it happen and get it out there, enjoy the ride of ups and downs within this pursuit, it will define you and make you appreciate all that is around you in journey. Also please don’t take what you do so serious that your ego takes over, you should love what you do and take the time out to help educate the next batch of upcoming artists.

APM: Love it. Great advice for emerging and established artists alike. Is there anything else you'd like to share? Col: Thank you for the opportunity to have my work featured in this article. Thank you to all who have supported, followed and enjoyed the art that I live and love doing. APM: Thanks to you too for the work that you do and for sharing it with us and our readers!

I've been a professionally graphic designer and advertising art director for over 35 years. I¹ve done everything from create award winning album and CD covers to successful ad campaign for national and International brands. I¹ve worked or consulted for every important record label Columbia, Atlantic, PolyGram and RCA. I¹ve worked in several ad agencies on a wide range of accounts from airlines to consumer electronic to fashion, to beauty to Swiss Army Watches and I have been a principle partner in an advertising agency. I¹ve either won or have been included in every major advertising award show and nominated for a Grammy for album cover design. All that said I am relatively new to the fine art community and slowly feeling my way. Although I¹ve entered several juries shows as yet only one has seen the wisdom of including me in their exhibit and of course Artist Portfolio Magazine which has done the honor of letting help represent New York in this competition. I have shown locally in Manhattan at the National Arts Club in Gramercy Park in 2010 and 2011 and I¹ve sold to a couple of private collectors who have gone to the trouble of seeking me out.
