About "1/2 Snot 1/2 Amazing, Son!!!" Persue and Jersey Joe, two members from The Exchange are coming together for “ 1/2 Snot 1/2 Amazing, Son”. Characters like Persue’s booger monster and Joe’s dog Ralphy come alive through vibrant colors and bold, active lines. Every purposeful line adds to the motion and action of the animals, people and creatures. “1/2 Snot 1/2 Amazing, Son” is full of loud, attitude-filled style with well-rounded, clean design. Persue and Joe’s distinct lettering styles and recognizable characters are sure to leave a lasting impression.
In The Exchange, 12 members from North America and Europe trade sketches between each other once. Hoping to foster awareness and versatility of styles and techniques from graffiti pieces, they take the artist out of their comfort zone and into the realm of learning.

WESC's First Annual Collabattle
WESC Proudly Announces the First Annual Collabattle of the Natural Forces of the Brush and the Paint. With Special Guests Chris Pastras and Andy Howell. Saturday, December 10, 2005. 1pm to 7pm at WESC Los Angeles.
Weactivist Chris Pastras (a.k.a. Stereo Sound Agent 547) is known for his smooth and original skating, brilliant art and unique style. This bespectacled wonder is also known for a particularly refined taste in chapeaux and rare Scandinavian wines. He doesn’t get mad, he gets even. And he packs a mean left hook.
Weactivist Andy Howell (Master of Brush and Spray Can) possesses near superhuman hearing abilities, and was one of the first pro skateboarders to master the nollie. Beware- ye would-be adversaries and narrow-minded simpletons! This maestro of many methods is almost invincible when the moon is full...
The event was originally scheduled to be a no mercy, no holds barred cage match of death. Needless to say, this caused quite a media frenzy- with widespread panic ensuing until the National Guard stepped in. Diplomats worked feverishly in order to achieve some semblance of a peace accord, and it was resolved that both camps would lower their arms and support peace in this time of international unrest. In its place, a live mural painting by both participants will delight the populace during this bloodless coup called an art show.
Come one, come all! Old or small, short or tall! Enjoy Food, Drinks, and Merriment at the WESC Los Angeles Store!

Cat began painting and working as a freelance illustratorwith the Scrawl Collective in 2000 whilst still at college. In the last five years she has developed a unique and versatile style, that ranges from the cute to the weird to the downright scary. In this her first solo show in London, she has created a remote mountainous world populated by wise animals, silly beasts, Aztec superheroes and men in furry pants.

Raid Projects, downtown Los Angeles, is pleased to present Fultjacks Blot: an exhibition of works by Scandinavian artists and musicians who conjure with serious fantasy to generate alternate, virtual, imaginary and occasionally dystopic 'realities'.
Swedish WE-Activist Pär Strömberg is in the show and will attend the opening reception/party on Saturday the 3rd of December from 6pm. The exhibition continues to the 31 of December. See www.raidprojects.com for more information.
Pär Strömberg's mythic figurative landscapes are not so much registrations of actuality as representations of states of mind and atmospheres that, the artist asserts, can be recognized by 'collective memory' even if they have never been directly experienced. Using multiple glazes Strömberg brings his 'dreamy stories' about archetypal struggles to rich and delicate life. Curated by Jonas Ohlsson, Fultjacks Blot will feature an opening night performance by Swedish legends En Halvkokt I Folie!
Other artists to be seen in the exhibition are: Jonas Liveröd, Andreas Nilsson, Martin Karlsson, Fredrik Söderberg, Ida Ekblad, Anders Nordby, Oskar Nilsson, ONKEL KONKEL, Peter Hallberg, Iwo Myrin, Heimir Björgúlfsson, Helgi Thorsson, Jonas Ohlsson
