 PRLog (Press Release) – Nov, 2011 – Escape Camper Vans has teamed up with CHALK Gallery to provide an Escape Artist exhibit and a live, on-site van painting for artists including Drew Brophy, Cre8, Jim Darling, Mark Longenecker, Haste, DJ Neff, Mark7,HEX, Siner, Justin Mitchell, and CANLOVE.

Escape Camper Van rents hundreds of wildly decorated vans, which are painted by some of the best surf, street and tattoo artists from Southern California and Florida.  The artists are given total freedom to paint anything they want on the vans, which makes for a wild variety of paintings that travel the country on wheels.

The Escape Artist show was created to spotlight their more personal works on canvas, surfboards and other mediums, as well as a representative painted van from each artist.  The painted vans will line the street of Venice Blvd.

The public is invited to watch as the artists team up and collaborate on a van painting, live, using mediums including spray paint, airbrush and Uni Posca paint pens.

When:   Saturday November 12, 2011 from 5 pm to 10 pm (rain or shine)
Where  CHALK Gallery, 12513 Venice Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90066 424.228.2289
What:   Art Exhibit and live collaborative van painting by the artists; food, beverages, and selected Escape Vans on display.  Music performances from Mark7 and Aquaries, with a video music set by DJ Skitz.

CANLOVE, a recycling program for graffiti art, will also be present with their own works created solely from the discarded spray cans donated from places like ESCAPE.

About: CHALK is a creative group made up of designers, writers, producers and strategic thinkers. The studio is dedicated to creating new and original content to be showcased in the gallery. They love helping other local Venice artists and individuals express themselves and are open to collaborations of any kind.  For more information, CHALK  can be reached at holler@chalkla.com or call 424.228.2289 or http://www.chalkla.com

Drew’s been down this road before, and he likes it.

They call it “The Mexican Pipeline” because the waves are heaving tubes!  Drew will be surfing this contest, thanks to sponsorsMegaFood and Hinano Tahiti.

THE PAINT SHOP WITH DREW BROPHY TV SERIES

We did it – we got our TV show on the air!  The Paint Shop with Drew Brophy gives a “behind the scenes look” at what a professional artist does, the trials and tribulations, etc.

Right now, only airing in Southern California and Arizona, to “only” 4.2 MILLION households!  But we are working to get it nationwide, and will keep you posted on that.
