The good folks over at Vimby.com posted their interview with ELBOW-TOE & ARMSROCK today. They swung through during the set up and on the opening night of our big ‘Mostly Memory’ exhibit last month. The short feature came out just great – thanks Vimby!

from Jon Todd
“Armsrock and Elbow-Toe exceeded expectations with their two person show and made their mark on Los Angeles by ‘getting up’ all over the city. Armsrock pushed the bounds with his unrelenting portrayal of atrocity victims. The works were a gripping depiction of not so distant events which prompted viewers to pause for a moment of reflection. Elbow-Toe took his fine-art work to another level in this show. His characters were intricately rendered and flawlessly executed. The combination of his street work and fine art background were reflective in the emotional embodiment exhibited by his characters.” – Arrested Motion

Thinkspace has been a hub of activity for the past week – all three artists have been putting forth their all to make our last show of 2008 one to remember. We’re really proud with how the show has come together and hope you all can make it out to view in person…
Watch the streets of Los Angeles this week/weekend for sightings from both ELBOW-TOE (shown above) and ARMSROCK… more to follow soon, including a nice recap of the week to be posted by the amazing folks over at www.vimby.com
