Skinner Hosts New Super Deluxe Show

Skinner, a self-taught, Oakland-based artist, stars in a new show with Super Deluxe. “Drawing With Skinner" combines the vibes of the Bob Ross series “The Joy of Painting,” “Pee-wee’s Playhouse,” and “Wayne’s World.” Skinner, who makes paintings that combine psychedelic visions, pop culture, and other oddities, was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 14. He was last featured on HiFructose.com here.

Even within the first few moments, those influences come through, as Skinner gives audiences his intro. “I’m going to be taking you on an art adventure,” Skinner says, in the first moments. “What kinds of things are we gonna draw on ‘Drawing with Skinner’? Maggots, worms, demons, portals, vampires, parasites, guts, who knows? It’s all depends on what the Wheel of Fun has fated for our measly souls.”

The artist created the show with Allen Cordell. The 25-minute first episode of the show features hip-hop producer/DJ The Gaslamp Killer. Upcoming episodes will include Buzz Osborne of the Melvins and Andree Vermeulen of the show “Angie Tribeca.” Check out the first episode below.

The line-up is considerable, and owner Kristen Anderson says it’s “by no means comprehensive, given how many artists we’ve exhibited over the years, but it still represents a nice little microcosm.” The show runs through Sept. 6 at the gallery.
David Krovblit’s pop surrealist collages explore consumerism, sexuality, and other social themes.

His work is part of the current collage group show “Mèlange” at Arch Enemy Arts, running until Aug. 25.
Spanish artist Ivana Flores crafts pop-surrealist oil paintings with both a childlike sense of whimsy and ominous undertones. At grand sizes, the works carry an absorbing quality that pulls you into her worlds. Her work has been described as “reality, dream, everyday life and imagination merge at a turning point of boundless consciousness of self-image and world.”
