Lot F Gallery Exhibit: Brother From Another Mother

“Local Boston artists, Dana Woulfe and Kenji Nakayama have long been collaborating in their South Boston studio and as members of the artist collaborative Project SF, but the duo’s counter balancing styles will be on full display in their first ever joint exhibition, showcasing collaborations and solo works at the Lot F Gallery, 145 Pearl St #4, Boston, MA. The show opens with a reception on Friday, April 8, 2011 from 7-11PM.

The two artists and Distillery studio mates who are also employed as Converse footwear designers, posses vastly divergent styles and have been experimenting for several years with large scale mixed media work that combines Woulfe’s wildly abstract, vibrant and at times chaotic landscapes with Nakayama’s incredibly detailed, precise and realistic cityscapes.

“We’re excited about this exhibit, said Woulfe. “It provides us with a backdrop for a large body of work that we’ve been developing over the past year and gives us a chance to showcase the juxtaposition of our different backgrounds and styles – mine which is influenced by abstractionism and graffiti and Kenji’s which comes from a more precise, stylized sign painting background.”

Artists’ Background

Woulfe is a founding member of Project SF, the Boston based artist collective that was originally conceived as a multi-disciplined graffiti/street art crew. Project SF is comprised of artists and designers based mainly in Boston and New York. The group organizes exhibitions and events in galleries, warehouses, lofts and alternative spaces from Montreal to Tokyo. Nakayama was asked to join the collective shortly after moving to the United States and the two have been collaborating and working together creatively and professionally ever since. Individually, their work has been shown at Woodward Gallery (NY), Carmichael Gallery (LA), Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (Sydney) , Massachusetts MOCA , Fourth Wall Project (BOS), Bodega (BOS), and in publications such as Juxtapoz, XL8R, IdN, HOW Journal, Graphotism, Clouded Thoughts, Sole Collector and the Boston Globe.

“Dana and I just think alike” commented Nakayama. “So it’s easy for us to make art together. He starts to paint something, then I come and do something over it and we just go back and forth like that until we feel like it’s finished. Our styles just work very well together and we have a good rhythm. We’re like brothers from another mother.”

About Kenji Nakayama

Kenji Nakayama was born in Japan and moved to Boston in 2004 to attend Butera School of Art with a focus on sign painting. Previously he had been an engineer at Toyota and from this technical background, Kenji brings a high degree of discipline and precision to his work. He layers incredibly intricate, hand-cut stencils to produce photo-realistic paintings on canvas, and adds dimension to the duo’s collaborations with hand painted pin striping.

About Dana Woulfe

Dana Woulfe grew up in Rhode Island where he learned art under the tutelage of his grandmother, Betty Jehan, a RISD graduate, professional illustrator and lifelong oil painter and watercolorist. He attended Mass College of Art where he got involved in graffiti in the mid 90’s. His style is influenced by his background in street art and his work uses aerosol, oil and layering techniques to create intricate textures.

The combination of these two styles will be on display in Brother From Another Mother and the result is surprisingly harmonious. The exhibit contains several large scale collaborations as well as smaller works and individual pieces. The opening reception is free and open to the public and both artists will be on hand. The show runs for one month and the gallery is open by appointment only.”

Yuki Matsuda

Classic made in U.S.A. footwear and luggage are exceptional as traditional artifacts of the rugged and refined American past. -Yuketen Philosophy

Inventory Magazine managed to catch up with Yuki Matsuda, founder of the Maine based luggage and footwear company Yuketen.  The interview focuses on the many dimensions presented in the this year’s Fall/Winter offering which you can find in-store as well as in our webshop.

Was there any source of inspiration behind the FW11 collection that differed from previous seasons?
For FW11 I wanted to maintain the overall Yuketen aesthetic of classic American outdoor sporting lifestyle in addition to classic town and country American lifestyles.  Of course there are some new style additions for FW11 but overall the feeling is the same as with past seasons.

Does working in Maine feel it has influenced the direction of your brand? We know the region holds a special place in your heart.
I love Maine and I always enjoy spending time there.  Maine living is like being transported back in time 40 – 50 years because there is an overcoming feeling of freedom which cannot be experienced in a metropolitan area. Maine is removed from the influences of modern city life and there are less people so I feel great freedom when I am in Maine. I love all countryside areas throughout the World. I think I am more at peace when surrounded by nature.

Milton Glaser on Celluloid

Milton Glaser is American graphic design. The breadth and depth of his work stretches far and wide (co-founder of New York magazine and creator of the “I Love NY” campaign) but a couple things remain certain, the man’s ability to craft messages creatively in a manner that remains simple and to the point.  A documentary released last year ‘Milton Glaser: To Inform and Delight’ shadows him through daily activity with commentary that reveals his seemingly infinite intellect and originality.  Check out the documentary trailer above and buy/rent it through iTunes here. Also down bottom is Glaser’s TED speech, circa 1998, where he explains the use of design to make ideas new.

And Still…Deadstock Kings

Operating in Los Angeles since 2009, shop ‘And Still‘ has been consistent in fulfilling the role of purveyor when it comes to deadstock vintage.  From jacketing to snapbacks, their inventory offers a variety of brands that cover all bases of vintage sports team apparel. Co-owner of ‘And Still” and native New Englander, Kirk Tilton, was recently interviewed by SneakerFreaker as a part of the mag’s comprehensive feature on THE team apparel brand Starter.  With the supply of deadstock vintage always on the decline, you can confide in ‘And Still’ to continuously offer up some gems.  Big ups ole homey.
