Chowdown on /// Gerhard Demetz
Gerhard Demetz is one of The Chowdown’s greatest inspirations! This artist’s use of material texture and subject matter combine to form a compelling narrative that makes us wanting more. Check out his WEBSITE, as well as a great interview on YATZER (an amazing blog that should be your daily go-to for inspiration and education).
It’s about damn time! Read more about it HERE. Wish I lived near a Target.
I’m stoked to be showing at STROKE ART FAIR in Berlin! If you’re in the hood, check out the set with OPEN WALLS from Sept. 13 through the 16th.
Extreme eye candy provided by MORTEN ANDERSEN, a sick artist from Denmark who I had the pleasure of partying with the last time I was in Germany. He’ll have work on display at Stoke, so feed his birds!
Josh Cassidy is one of TheChowdown’s favourite peeps and we want to congratulate him on a great performance at the London 2012 Paralympics!!! Apart from being one of the sexiest mo-fos on the planet, JC is a Paralympic athlete who currently holds the World Record in the Marathon and kicking the shit outta grizzly bears. When he’s not training 10 hours a day, he somehow finds the time to work with children, engage in motivational speaking events and give men around the world major self-esteem issues.
If you haven’t seen him kill it on the road or track, you’re missing out!!! For more info on his upcoming races check out his WEBSITE and follow him on TWITTER or FACEBOOK. Do it now!
Also, big shout-outs to his design team JACKSON WYNNE, his brand/marketing guru CC. MARTIN and photographs by the awesome MIKE LEWIS. ( all of which are BIG Chowdown homies )
Sruli Recht is a master of texture, textile and material narrative and the Chowdown wants all of it in the worst way. If you don’t know who he is, you’ve been living under narwhal. Check out his new work and web store HERE.
