The pair has made a 9 piece series of what they call ‘flipsides’ paintings.  These double sided paintings have a choice illustrative piece from Mando on one side, and a minimal geometric ‘shapepile’ painting from Hyland on the other side. In Mando’s words, ‘You can quickly flipside switcheroo whichever side you want facing the world for a change of vibe. ‘  Nice.

Hyland has new ‘lostobject’ series of Cali Beaches adding, ‘These pieces are a simple homage to the many trips had along the Cali coast, not only our trips, but just the many many trips.’
