Flanked by the fine stylings of Katie Green, Olivier Bonnard, Jeremy Shantz and Jason Botkin, here’s my interpretation of Beijing’s little rabbit god Tu’er Ye… clutching a quart of pee-joe, rather than his apothecary’s pestle. He’s on the wall at Station 16, where the EN MASSE exhibition Full Circle is on until April 4.
My drawing of a hariko-inu — the traditional Japanese papier mache toy dog — for the scroll-style En Masse jam at Otakuthon 2013, the anime/manga/cosplay convention in Montreal.
A detail from the 5’x16’ vertical En Masse jam created at a dusty furniture workshop on the outskirts of Shanghai. It was hardly dry before it was whisked off and installed behind the cash register at the Converse store in Shanghai’s iAMP Mall. It’s a jam with Jason Botkin and Deviljax… my bit is the freaky flying bunny with the punk collar and lucky 8 on its hip.
Working on a big, fantastical, antlered creature of some sort… early on in the production of Arts Urbains @ Jeux, the En Masse installation at l’Université de Sherbrooke’s Centre Culturel, in Sherbrooke, Quebec. It’s there until October 13, 2013.
The limited-run En Masse customized Converse kicks up for grabs at the sneaker co.’s San Francisco flagship store in conjunction with our big fat installation there. That’s me, Jason Botkin, Dan Buller and the Shantz Bros. — Jeremy and Michael — on them Chucks.
A detail from the titanic En Masse installation (4,200 sq. ft.!) at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ Big Bang! exhibition in 2011.
Detail from the second En Masse jam at the Simons dept. store in Ste-Foy, QC. On this one with me were Jason Botkin, Mireille Bouchard, Flexib White, Avive and Matel.
A detail from one of the En Masse @ Osheaga 2011 chalkboard tableaus. An En Masse team got the ball rolling with white paint on these 4’x8′ matte-black plywood panels, before dispensing chalk to the festival crowd, to jam on ’em as they saw fit.
A detail from “En Masse @ Ottawa International Animation Festival 2011”, the creation of which was captured and enhanced by animators See Creature to fashion the signal film for the festival’s 2012 edition (the 5’x16′ fresco was concurrently exhibited by the Ottawa Art Gallery).
