Those of us who are fortunate enough to call San Diego home—or even visit it for a vacation—appreciate its natural beauty and friendly people. The area offers numerous options on any given weekend, but Mission Federal ArtWalk creates an environment that’s truly special. This free cultural festival brings together the talents of more than 350 visual and performing artists, all assembled in Downtown San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood in a unique, open air setting. As the largest, locally based financial institution exclusively serving San Diego County, Mission Fed is proud to support this festival for the ninth year and delighted to have a branch right in this popular neighborhood. Usually when we talk about Mission Fed Moments, we’re referring to helping our customers achieve their goals. But this weekend, we encourage you to find your Mission Fed Moment here at the event, such as talking with an artist, meeting your friends, listening to live music, and maybe finding a treasure that brings you joy. On behalf of Mission Fed’s volunteer Board of Directors, employees and customers, I’d like to thank everyone who brings Mission Federal ArtWalk to life every year, whether you’re working behind the scenes, sharing your art or enjoying the atmosphere. See you there! Sincerely,

FE ATUR ED ARTISTS Mission Federal ArtWalk is pleased to present this year’s Featured Artists, chosen to capture the artistic diversity and extraordinary artistry among the participating artists.

66th Street, Oil Dangerous Cocktail Digital, Photography

Garden Totems, Ceramics

MONI BLOM San Diego, CA moniblom.com tent #143 Often whimsical and fanciful in nature, Moni Blom’s oneof-a-kind ceramic sculptures feature fairy tale references, children’s literature characters and imaginary people drawn from contemporary life. Moni’s artistic theme conveys the dichotomies in life by using humor and visual contrast. She’s inspired by children’s games, candy, circus life, clothing, fairy tales, architecture and toys. With forethought, each piece fluctuates throughout the process but generally adheres to the original intention.

FRANCO FORTE Las Vegas, NV fortefinearts.com tent #117, 119 Born and raised in Milan, Italy, Franco Forte studied journalism and architecture at the Politecnico University. Guitar and painting were his first passions as a child, and from a young age, he developed the ability to represent emotions with colors and forms whether on canvas or wood. During the last decade he has dedicated his time to the creation of surrealistic photography. His objective is to create something that stirs the imagination while fusing and manipulating real photos. Franco’s artistic goal is to rouse a sense of surprise and psychological wonder, regardless of the medium he uses.

MATTHEW GRABELSKY Los Angeles, CA grabelsky.com tent #871

Born in Los Angeles and raised in New York, Matthew grew up surrounded by artists. After graduating from Rice University in 2002 with both a Bachelor’s in Art and Art History and a Bachelor’s in Astrophysics he moved to Florence, Italy where he spent four years studying the techniques of classical drawing and painting. Since then he has focused on creating meticulously rendered oil paintings that juxtapose the “real” world with that of the subconscious. He draws inspiration from childhood memories – the subway in New York City, the Bronx Zoo and the animal dioramas at the Natural History Museum, along with memories of childhood stories read to him by his parents.

Wild Style, Mixed Media

JASON HUMPHREY La Mesa, CA originalinkart.com tent #335 Jason grew up in culturally diverse Los Angeles in the 80’s. He spent his teenage years spraying graffiti across the city with the wrong crowd and he credits his mother for saving his life by insisting that he join the Navy at the age of 17. He was fortunate enough to travel the world while in the military and he finds his artwork is influenced by his travels. He loves working in pen and ink stipple. He is inspired by the many different cultures he grew up with like Saturday morning cartoons and early hip hop.

MICHAEL SUMMERS After the Snow Fell, Oil

Harp, Sculpture

MILDRED GIL PARADA Mesa, AZ mildredgilparada.com tent #890 Born in Merida, Venezuela in 1972, Mildred earned her degree in fine arts from the School of Arts Armando Reveron in Barcelona. Mildred is one of the main representatives of a very small group of contemporary Venezuelan women sculptors working in stone, a medium Mildred has worked in for more than 16 years. Her work represents deep and secret feminine thought, molding the natural stiffness of stone into abstract and curved shapes, textures and shadows.

IRIS SCOTT

New York, NY adelmanfineart.com/ artist/iris-scott/ tent #729, 731 New York artist Iris Scott paints vivid oil paintings with just her fingertips, a technique she stumbled upon while living in Taiwan during 2010. Today, she works with paint like a malleable, nearly clay-like medium, pushing it along the canvas in the thick, impressionistic smears that have become her trademark. Having traded in brushes for latex gloves, Iris Scott is history’s first artist to abandon brushes altogether and focus entirely on finger painting - and legitimizing it in the world of fine art. Iris is represented by Adelman Fine Art.

Cyclovia, Mixed Media

IVANO STOCCO Placentia, CA ivanostocco.com tent #926 Ivano Stocco’s paintings in a variety of media explore the strange and unconventional beauty of built environments and indeterminate zones where culture and nature meet and intermix. Examples of spaces and architecture that have interested Ivano have included alleys, ravines, underpasses, garages, hydro poles and wires, storm sewers, greasy spoons and weathered walls. He paints in watercolor, ink, acrylic, aerosol, oil, and in the amorphous category called mixed media. Born in Toronto, Canada, Ivano is a former plasterer and high school teacher and has lived and worked in several countries – most recently in Italy.

Oceanside, CA michaelsummersart.com tent #738 Born in Los Angeles, Michael Summers grew up in Joshua Tree surrounded by an eccentric art commune. Summers’ meticulously crafted paintings are firmly rooted in contemporary west coast surrealism with a strong pop sensibility. He uses this style as a tool to reflect his inner vision: Creating the impossible and more importantly, making the impossible seem plausible. Imaginary characters are formed in acrylic paint with a keen hyper-attentiveness. The recognizable subjects of animals, automatons and humans suddenly become magical and extraordinary. Yet, they somehow still retain the nostalgia of a childhood memory that was once forgotten. He currently lives and works in Oceanside, CA.

VENUE AND ART MATERIALS SPONSORED BY

Adjacent to Blick Art Materials (India and Fir Street) We proudly feature two muralists this year at Mission Federal ArtWalk, who will lead large-scale interactive art projects throughout the two-day festival. Meet these two acclaimed artists and have an opportunity to paint alongside them as they create large and colorful murals.

MARIO TORERO Mario has dedicated his life to being an “artist of the people”. Mario’s work has been exhibited in the United States, Mexico, Peru, Japan, Prague, and Spain. His work spans over four decades of urban interventions and international artivism. His masterpieces include “Chicano Legacy,” a glass mosaic at UCSD, and several historical murals at Chicano Park. Mario teaches through his Cosmic School of Art that has inspired thousands of artists of all ages. The largest project on the table is to complete the Barrio Logan Arts District as a city-wide bridge to sustainable art on a monolithic scale. Mario is now manifesting a larger vision to create international ties between artivists and enthusiasts who are becoming the authors of the epoch of expanded consciousness.

MAXX MOSES Remaining uncomfortable is a life practice for Maxx. Creating large scale spray-painted murals across the globe and forging deep connections with communities is how he examines the depth of his learning and the quality of his art. This non-conformist from Yonkers, New York, emerged from the era of painting his name on New York City subways. His formal education at the SUNY College at Brockport is where he fused Subway Art with surrealism creating his own artistic identity. Transforming blank walls into beautiful murals is the process that Maxx Moses has coined as Concrete Alchemy. His mission is to create a deeper understanding of the relationship between our physical identities and the energy behind this substance, spirit.

The common denominator I see in San Diego theater, no matter the size or the budget of the production, has been the quality and commitment by all. Another thing I have noticed is there is a great spirit of cooperation and sharing of talent and resources. I’m proud to be part of this community, and it can and will only get better.”

My wish for visual art in 2017 is ... TIFFANY BERES Executive director, San Diego Chinese Historical Museum

I A

Nonprofit arts boards, seldom seen by the public, have the complex job of weighing financial and artistic goals

“My wish for San Diego’s visual art community in 2017 is a desire to strengthen our city as an arts destination by promoting multicultural artistic excellence. Our city has one of the most diverse populations in the United States: Asian/Pacific Islanders alone account for one in 10 residents in our community, and yet there are few venues that showcase San Diego’s multicultural artistic talent. In the aftermath of this contentious presidential election, I believe that the visual arts are more important than ever — this universal language can spark connections across cultures and through time, by igniting curiosity, conversation and creativity. I hope that we can all celebrate diversity by seeking out the distinctive aesthetic and intellectual achievements of artists who do not just look like ourselves.”

Unrequited love a key inspiration A good number of the songs Salvant writes address matters of the heart and unrequited love.

the Savage in Me,” and 1905’s wrenching “Nobody” by Bert Williams, an African-American singer and trumpeter who performed in black-face. “The first thing that attracted me to ‘Wives and Lovers’ was, of course, the music. I thought that song sounded great,” Salvant said. “The lyrics are absurd, but that whole idea that a woman needs be obsessed with what she looks like — more so than a man — in order to secure her place in society, is still something we

deal with. I wanted to poke fun at the lyrics, but also underscore that (this mindset) is not over. “With Bert Williams and Valaida Snow, I think the stories behind the songs are really interesting, and I share them with the audience. Sometimes the story is not interesting and the song is still beautiful. But when there is an interesting story, it can make the song even more meaningful and special.” george.varga@sduniontribune.com

RESTREPO FROM E4 After observing this trend, Restrepo, who has had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, Brussels and Miami, started to ask himself: What exactly do these words mean, and how could they be represented visually? He began creating drawings inspired by these words, and together they form a sort of visual glossary. Language, Restrepo added, is being transformed. It’s being “narcoticized,” he said, using a coinage of his own. While these images are drawn, he said he can’t do “hyper-realistic” drawing. He uses Google Images to find models from which to copy. Another medium is collage. Some of Restrepo’s collage works have a different visual effect when seen up close versus from afar. From afar, a cartoonish portrait might portray a character linked to the drug

world. From up close, that larger image is composed of myriad smaller images that all relate to his chosen themes. He uses paper, wax, ink, stickers, pieces of newspaper and his own spit, creating dense constellations of tiny images that converge to form that broader picture. One ingredient that runs throughout his work is humor. For Restrepo, that’s a way to deal with trauma, but in a way that doesn’t erase tragedy. Instead, humor allows a work to be accessible, he said. And when the viewer’s experience of the work is over, humor lets the viewer “carry on” rather than be devastated. Humor also reflects a facet of his reality: He is trying “to dismantle the absurdity that is happening in Colombia,” he said. For instance, the aliases, the new language, the almost incredible newspaper articles. Another element in his method, he said, is accident. For example, as he re-

searches characters and themes online, he’s never sure where the link clicking will take him. He is “always ... open to uncertainty in my practice.” Restrepo hopes people looking at his works will have a better understanding of “how harmful the war on drugs is.” Restrepo said that after 30 years, it is a “failure.” On a related note, he estimated that the vast majority of the population in Colombia — some 80 or 90 percent — knows somebody who has been killed, kidnapped or displaced by violence. A recent positive turn, Restrepo said, has been a movement toward reconciliation between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia guerrilla group, or FARC. He called the agreement a “well-constructed” political solution that will improve the lives of ordinary people. While at Lux, Restrepo is going to begin work on a new project about antiheroes and perfection. That and another work he

will undertake at Lux will then be displayed in Bogotá, according to a statement from the institute. Asked what aspects of Restrepo’s previous work or proposed project incited her to invite him to Lux, Reesey Shaw, the institute’s founding director, answered: “While being puzzled, engaged and entertained by the endless cartoon antics unfolding in the complex conflicts in Camilo’s drawings, I recognized, too, the very personal nature of this work.” Restrepo called his time at Lux a “great opportunity,” particularly because of the program’s public interaction and education component. His aim while in the residence is not to teach or explain but to “be a peer” and to listen to people’s reactions and thoughts about his work. He’s looking forward to surprises and revelations, he added. “You never know where things are going to end,” Restrepo said.

an Diego Museum of Art director Roxana Velásquez is someone who seems to be in a state of constant excitement. But she was in an especially elated mood over “Gauguin to Warhol: 20th Century Icons from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery,” on exhibit through Jan. 27 at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park. ■ “It’s the culmination of years of working and thinking,” she said. “And it reflects my belief in the museum, that we should bring the best art possible to our community. ■ “These are the best examples of 20th-century art you can get.” ■ The exhibit’s checklist includes virtually every marquee artist from the late 19th century to the late 20th, whether Picasso or Pollock. ■ But more importantly, it’s not so much about the big names as the memorable pieces, which are in many cases among each artist’s most celebrated work. ■ “When I studied art history, and saw the paintings in the books, these are those paintings,” said Velásquez. “For young people, and for many of us, they are already classics, the classics of the modern world.” ■ The Albright-Knox’s famed collection, which some commentators place on the level of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, rarely tours as an entity, but renovations in the Bufalo, N.Y., museum prompted it to put a selection of its paintings and a few smaller sculptures on tour.

And here indeed is what is undoubtedly the most important of Gorky’s works.” Gorky himself considered it his “ultimate statement,” but was fearful its erotic qualities might preclude it from being placed in a museum. The collector and one of the museum’s primary benefactors, Seymour H. Knox Jr., however had no fear, and was apparently certain that history would confirm his enthusiasm about this painting. He was right.

INTER AC TIVE ART Corner of India and Date Street

MONOPRINTING WITH GEL PLATES Sponsored by Artist & Craftsman Supply

Create a colorful piece of art at Mission Federal ArtWalk and take it home!

Our partners at Artist & Craftsman Supply will lead you in a monoprint technique using gel plates. Choose from an array of waterbased Speedball printing inks to create soft blends of color on the gel plate surface. By layering objects from nature such as greenery and feathers combined with various tools you will create a unique composition. A bold design is revealed on the initial print and then even more depth and intricacies appear on the second print, also known as the ‘ghost print’. You’ll create a diptych design on one sheet of artist grade paper such as rice paper or rag. Come and connect with your inner artist at the interactive art pavilion and take home a vibrant nature-inspired work of art!

WE THANK OUR INTERACTIVE ART SPONSORS
