"These hand-painted multiples are based off of an original painting that I did for Carpe Diem at Loakl Gallery this past March of 2014. It's definitely a continuation of some my themes. This incarnation of BLNT is a 3 color screen print on a cradled wood box that was just recently completed in July. The boxes are treated with an iron based reactive paint that is rusted as the final process. All the hardware on the box also went through an acid bath to create a patina.
Each box has a stamped brass plate with the name title and edition number on it. The plates went through a patina process as well. On the back on each box is a small note pasted that gives the piece some context. The backs also have my name burnt into the wood with a branding iron." - 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.
