Spencer Keeton Cunningham – ACCESSION – Interview

Spencer Keeton Cunningham has finally launched a new solo exhibition after 2 years on the road. An artist who set forth over 2 years ago on a self proclaimed painting journey, Cunningham has most recently been painting large walls throughout the United States, Australia and New Zealand. He has continued to remain on the road with no home base, venturing solo from one location to the next, from the border of Southern Mexico to the iced over roads of Alaska over the past 800 days. He has just recently launched his most recent solo exhibit from the road, titled “Accession” at One Grand Gallery in Portland, Oregon.

AJ Fosik – Beast From A Foreign Land – Tokyo

AJ Fosik has created 12 sculptures that were delivered to 12 artists in Tokyo by Hellion Gallery for a unique collaboration project. Unlike AJ’s normal work, these pieces are unfinished and can be disassembled so that each artist can customize each individual piece of the sculpture. The result will be a unique collaboration between a stellar list of artists in Tokyo and one of Portland’s most well-known artists.
