Thinkspace Projects (Los Angeles, California) is excited to be partnering once again with our friends up in the Pacific Northwest at Antler Gallery and Talon Gallery (Portland, Oregon).

This dynamic exhibition will help to shine a light on the plight of our endangered species around the world and hopefully help open some eyes to how we can still help our fellow animals to survive and thrive, so that future generations can experience their majestic marvel for themselves.

We’ll be donating 10% of the sale from each work sold to BornFreeUSA.org to help in their fight to save our endangered species in the animal kingdom. We’ve worked with them many times in the past and they are a great organization dedicated to helping our wildlife.

EXCERPT FROM GIROGIKO INTERVIEW

 What advice would you give to artists trying to find their voice or style?

Darren: I would highly encourage them to not be afraid of creating an “ugly” piece of artwork. When they create a piece of artwork they don’t like, they should hold onto it so that they can figure out what they don’t like about it. For me, I didn’t find my “style” of painting until after I graduated from ArtCenter. In hindsight, this is a great regret, because the main reason I didn’t find my style was that I was too preoccupied with impressing people, or at the very least avoiding creating something people would find “ugly”. I had to create a lot of “ugly” pieces in order to really figure out what I liked and didn’t like.

EXCERPT FROM BRAD WOODFIN INTERVIEW

Who are a few of your creative influences? How have they inspired you and your work?

Marion Peck is a friend and a mentor. I was lucky enough to meet her years ago and she showed me what an artist is. I love her paintings, but it was also that she was the coolest person I had met. I was painting but I knew nothing about what I was doing. I saw her put-together shows in her apartment. Her amazing paintings pinned to her walls. I was in awe but also saw how it worked. The romance of it and the alchemy. She was my Patti Smith. She was punk and wild and so talented and exotic and such a force. Meeting her for sure changed my life. I love the work of Northern Renaissance, Surrealists, the Situationist International, Alexander McQueen but I think being inspired how to live, create, think and work by Marion Peck or reading Just Kids by Patti Smith has a sort of “whole package” vibe
