Seripop. Friday. At Wurm. Will YOU be there? I just might.
I have this funny feeling that if I go to WURM again (this will be twice in about a week), I will inevitably buy that crazy white fluffy stuffed thing with the bag on its head. If you've seen it, you'll know what I'm talking about. Quirky cuteness!
From today's artengine:
"THE ART OF SERIPOP AT WURM GALLERY (INSIDE INVISIBLE CINEMA, 319 LISGAR). OPENING PARTY: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26TH, 7 PM... UNTIL THE BEER IS GONE.
" Sometimes, Artengine can make me laugh out loud.
SERIPOP ARE AMONG THE TOP POSTER ARTISTS WORKING IN THE WORLD TODAY.
They're so talented it makes me sick.
THEY'VE EXHIBITED THEIR WORK ALL OVER AMERICA.
I'm so fucking jealous.
THEIR ILLUSTRATIONS HAVE APPEARED IN NUMEROUS CUTTING EDGE MAGAZINES, SUCH AS 'FADER', 'TOKION' AND 'PRINT'. I wonder how much money they made for those? More importantly, I wonder if the corner store will let me buy a bag of chips with my credit card?
THEY'VE BEEN HIRED TO DESIGN POSTERS FOR EVERY COOL BAND YOU CAN THINK OF. I wish I was in a band so that I could get them to make me a poster. If I hired them to make me a poster for the store it would probably just seem vain and self indulgent. But come to think of it, I am pretty vain and self indulgent... so maybe I should hire them to make me a poster. Bands are stupid anyway. Except for when their names appear in distorted fonts on Seripop posters, then suddenly they seem pretty cool.
THEIR WORK IS INFLUENCED BY EASTERN EUROPEAN GRAPHIC DESIGN, SAUL BASS TITLE SEQUENCES, THE 60's PSYCHEDELIC MOVEMENT, 80's PUNK FLYERS, A STRICT VEGAN DIET, AND OVERLY ACTIVE IMAGINATIONS. I can't believe that I used to think Garfield was funny when I was young. What the hell was I thinking?What was my problem?
THEY MANAGE TO SEAMLESSLY COMBINE ALL THESE INFLUENCES INTO A VERY POTENT ART BREW, WHICH HAS RAPIDLY BROUGHT THEM ATTENTION IN AMERICA AND JAPAN. I can barely do up my own pants. Sometimes when I pee at night, I miss the toilet bowel completely.
EXHIBITIONS IN MAJOR GALLERIES IN MANHATTAN AND L.A. ARE IN THE WORKS. I hate seripop.
MEANWHILE, WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE SERIPOP HERE AGAIN AT WURM, BEFORE THEY GET LOCKED INTO AN EXCLUSIVE ARRANGEMENT WITH A HIGH END GALLERY/ART DEALER. Why can't Wurm be a 'high end gallery/art dealer'? And what exactly is an 'exclusive arrangement', anyway? Really. That does sound a bit vague. I wonder if anyone's ever noticed that I have absolutely no clue what I'm writing about.
YOU'LL NOTE THAT THIS SHOW IS TIMED SUSPICIOUSLY CLOSE TO CHRISTMAS. THAT'S BECAUSE WE THINK THEY'RE ARTWORK MAKES IDEAL GIFTS AND STOCKING STUFFERS. Actually it's because we're greedy bastards.
CURIOUSLY ENOUGH, AND DESPITE THE FACT THAT SERIPOP'S REPUTATION CONTINUES TO SKYROCKET INTERNATIONALLY, MOST CANADIAN GALLERIES HAVE REFUSED TO TOUCH THEIR WORK. Stupid, dumb-ass Canadian galleries.
WE'RE REALLY HOPING YOU CAN BE HERE FOR THE OPENING AND THAT YOU'LL BRING SOME MONEY TO BUY ARTWORK, ALONG WITH LOTS OF GOOD ENERGY FOR PARTYING. IT'S BEEN A MONTH. WE'VE MISSED YOU! We're really hoping that you can be here for the opening and that you bring tons of cash to buy all of the artwork. I wonder how much beer I should buy? I wonder if any more hot girls will come this time? I hope no one throws up in my sink.
WURM GALLERY. DON'T BE SHY, SPEAK YOUR MIND. GET DOWN FRIDAY NIGHT. "
