"This piece came about when I was watching old videos of landings from Kai Tak Aiport in Hong Kong which closed in 1998. The planes look as if they are gonna touch the roofs in Kowloon. I wanted to incorporate some of that atmosphere into this series because it gives such a strong sense of place and that sense of place or atmosphere is very important to this series. The boxes are on cradled birch and are all unique in that they are all hand collaged, painted and distressed. So from piece to piece they will vary quite a bit. " - Eddie Colla
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
attended the School of Visual Arts in New York and graduated from the California College of Arts with a BFA in photography/interdisciplinary fine arts in 1991. He began his artistic career as a photographer, working first for the New York Times and later countless magazines, record labels and ad agencies. 15 years later he has morphed into one who counters the all-pervasive nature of commercialism in public spaces.
Since 2005, his wheatpastes and stencils can be found throughout public spaces in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and Miami. Eddie's work first began to garner national recognition when his street art began incorporating images of Barack Obama throughout the 2008 Presidential election. His growing popularity landed him attention on internet blogs, features in six published books, and participation in the "Manifest Hope Art Gallery" shows at the 2008 Democratic National Convention and at the Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C. His designs have been transformed many times over, from stickers, album and magazine covers.
