Flatcolor Gallery does an ace thing once again, with Obsessive Repulsive, curated by Ryan Bubnis!

Check out some images from...

Seattle's First Thursday is massive; here are some selections from some galleries we regularly enjoy. And, can I just say? Seattle is really rockin and rollin this month, with tons of really excellent and innovative exhibitions. We just did the post for Portland's First Thursday, and Seattle's is making Portland's...

It's been a minute since we've written about shows at Flatcolor Gallery, but that doesnt mean they've been slacking on fine arts curation. In fact, they're doing a great job. This month, they take their show to group show territory and prominently feature one artist we here at REDEFINE know...

Joe Vollan I feel like Joe Vollan's work is a love-it or hate-it affair. But if you're feeling the well-rendered, cutesy details of his pieces, chances are you'll be feeling them a lot. Below, a couple pieces that serve as throwbacks to another time, complete with costumed, skeletal figures. --- Jose Rodriguez III I...

As of today, you have one more week left to snag some Bigfoot pieces from Flatcolor Gallery (528 First Avenue South, Seattle, WA) -- lucky you! Snatch 'em up while you still can! The full-color painted pieces are not cheap, but I don't imagine they'll get any cheaper anytime soon....

Timothy Karpinski

Portland artist Timothy Karpinski is no newcomer to Seattle's art scene, and First Thursday this month (June 3rd, 2010) marks the date of his solo show at Flatcolor Gallery. On hand will be scores of his delicately paper-cut images, as well as some large-scale pieces as well as building a small sailboat for the show's theme, Let's Sail Away. On his art, Karpinski says:
From a young age ive always been making things. Building forts turned into building skate ramps which lead to building art installations. I love the art making process, from the initial spark of the "idea", the creation to the finished product. Art for me is very personal and everything i make is a direct reflection on my feelings about this world and my struggle and fascination with trying to understand it and find my purpose within it. I currently live, love and work in Portland oregon where i run Together Gallery and work in my studio till very late at night making art about love. I am also figuring things out :)

Seattle and Redefine favorite Robert Hardgrave unveiled a brand new piece at the Flatcolor Gallery last month, entitled Plexus. Here's the amazing piece, in case you missed it last month. If you thought Hardgrave was impressive before, this piece of work only further shows his growth as an imaginative artistic...

Seattle-based artist Ego is one of the most technically-proficient street artists the city has seen as of late.   Nonetheless, one might be able to argue that Ego has defined his style of dark, detailed renderings of skully things and creepers so well that one can kind of expect more or less...
