It Is Inexhaustible - 2 Color

As winter fades away and the natural world begins to wake, Ravi Zupa has ushered in spring with the release of the fourth print in his Tattoo Gratitude series. “Every year around this time, there seems to be a lot of chaos and upheaval,” Zupa says. “Perhaps this is partly because of the change of seasons as we recover from the darkness of winter and begin our return trip toward longer days. Springtime is a violent and destructive phenomenon first, before it gives way to birth and nurture.” This fourth piece in the series depicts a dragon, a cat who has caught a snake, and a peacock.

Denver Creative: Artist, Taylor Herzog

November 19th, 2018

Denver’s art scene is unique due to the fact that spray paint literally jumps off the walls of the RiNO district while some Santa Fe galleries are whimsical rabbit holes you never would have thought were there.   Subjective in nature, and always admired, I find Denver to be a warm welcoming art scene.   I had the privilege of interviewing a local artist and film her painting a 4ft x 6ft canvas.   Meet Taylor Herzog.   Website: http://www.taylorherzog.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/taylorherzog/ FULL INTERVIEW HERE:   Grant: Coming from another midwestern,... Read More

If that doesn’t ring a bell, you’ve most likely been to Sancho’s Broken Arrow, or Owsleys. Maybe you remember Quixote’s(RIP). If none of this sounds familiar, you may have just gotten here, which is fine, and now you know about some cool spots to check out. Bianchi is a die-hard deadhead and his establishments tend to reflect the sentiment. They’re all incredibly welcoming places to relax, grab a drink, and enjoy good music. His latest project, Be On Key Psychedelic... Read More
