back to stumptown:)

after our show at roq la rue gallery in seattle i took sometime off to spend few days in one of my favorite city on the west coast, portland. i fell in love with the city the first time i had a chance to visit. the moodiness of the weather and accessibility of the city reminded me of san francisco in many ways.
plus the cleanness and the charm of the city which is accented by their amazing local food and beers...
portland is truly magical in many ways....

i'm glad i got to visit such a beautiful city once again.

i hope you will enjoy some of these pictures;

lyrik cafe always welcomes me with open arms with their delicious sandwiches:)

lyrik cafe owner/founder, keiko is preparing me some nice cozy coffee drink:)

their spicy mocha latte is to die for!

got to do some positive vandalism on their table:)

took a bike to ride to cruse around downtown pdx and had a chance to see my friend ogi's solo show at compound gallery.

installation by ogi

found tessar lo in part of ogi' install

also j. shea 9 found in the install

last not but least mr. 9 providing me with some of his knowledge in his se studio.

over all very inspiring trip:)

sneak peak: roq la rue prt 2

my show at roq la rue is just around the corner. i will have 7 new painting on paper along with 7 wooden sculptures and a new edition of resin heads.

i have packed all my bags, printed out my pass, and made list of friends to visit during my trip. i'm looking forward to be spending sometime out side of la for a bit.
i think it will be a nice change of a pace for me to step out of my studio without my computer.

anyways here are few images from my new body of work, "lost stories and found memories."
