Its been an exciting 2016 spring season for me. I'm currently exhibiting 2 one man art shows at Rooz Cafe in Oakland CA, and at Nectar Wine Lounge in San Francisco CA. Both shows are hanging at the same time and exhibiting a combination of large scale paintings and sculpture. There are 18 pieces of art in total, divided equally with 9 in each venue. One of my most favorite things about making art for a living is when I have the opportunity to curate a one man show in a venue. So having the opportunity to be showing 2 of them at the same time in 2 different cities is really rewarding.
October 30th 2015 was Opening Night at White Walls Gallery, 886 Geary St. San Francisco CA; featuring the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Competition. 30 Pieces of art had been chosen from the Northern California region for this Semi-Finalist Round. The show stay packed from start to finish. Conversation between artists flowed as much as the bartenders pouring drinks. Patrons, photographers, writers, gallery owners, and cocktail waiters swarmed between the front room of the gallery and back.

Feeling honored and humbled to have had the amazing opportunity to show my paintings and sculptures at the 2015 Silicon Valley/San Francisco Fine Art Fair this year. The McLoughlin Art Gallery exhibited 2 of my paintngs and 2 of my sculptures. I spent a majority of the 4 day event walking around the event center looking at all the other art from around the world. Banksy, Mr. Brainwash, Basquiat, and many other iconic legends had pieces of theirs on display.

Artist Bryan Boutwell (Featured Live Painter) July 1st 2015 at WormHole DJ Music Showcase. Wormhole takes place in San Francisco and Oakland CA. "It's an evening party fused with Music and Art. Dub Step, Trap, Hip Hop, and other genres of DJ Music spin throughout the evening while artists paint to the sounds that are created. The crowd is alive, the music pumping, the visuals both digital and organic, and the mood amped and amourously contagious. I love paintiing to music. My brush finds the map in the rhythm. The movement in the Bass creates the spacing between strokes.
Piano Keys Mixed Media Sculpture #1 is an abstract piece of modern art by artist Bryan Matthew Boutwell. I'd wanted to take apart a piano for some time now, so I could use the parts to create a sculpture. I was blessed one morning when discovering that a stand up piano had been left outside on the curb directly in front of my warehouse live/work space. A wonderful homeless guy helped me drag it into the parkinglot, and I quickly grabbed my tools. It was a long day but an exciting one.
