DRAN Closes “Public Execution” in London, Finally Complete

DRAN Closes “Public Execution” in London, Finally Complete

Either it will have proved to be a master class or an exhibition in hubris, says Pictures on Walls in their framing of the empty-framed show in progress by Dran in London’s Soho. Public Execution is on display and in development before you as the artist continues to work on new illustrations directly on the walls, a gradual culmination of a show that began on February 5 as a reception with cheese and wine and a primarily empty white box gallery, save the hand-painted frames on walls and ceiling serving as place-holders. Even so, the frames are only suggested locations for his cartooning, as he proceeds to paint inside and outside their confines, eventually covering every surface.

While the concept is new to the gallery setting, it is analogous to the work of street artists creating outside the gallery doors, where any passerby can observe and frequently offer an opinion or pose a question. Here the artist has helpfully painted a suitably sour gallery assistant to stare you down if her eyes happen to divert from her Macbook for a second.

“Ideally located in Soho between a sex shop, a pub and a primary school, the show is evolving on a daily basis,” says photographer and street art culture observer Sandra AKA Butterfly, who brings these exclusive images of the humorous scenes that continue to spout from Dran’s imagination. By the time the show closes today, Public Execution will be complete and the gallery will be filled with new art works. “It’s actually a ‘reversed’ show,” says Butterfly. Along with her images today, we have great shots of the developing show by photographer Julie A.

Maya Hayuk “Melt the Guns” Mural in East London

Artist Battles Stylistic Demons and the Coldest March on Record … And Wins!!!

From Street Artist and fine artist Maya Hayuk comes this new mural “Melt the Guns” in her signature style on the exterior of Pictures On Walls in East London.

While she had a good time doing the new work, she noted the horrendous weather conditions (” ‘the coldest March on record’ they kept saying”) and the fact that her work had to be nearly completely painted over because it veered out of control due to stylistic demons that took it over.

More on demonic occupation in a minute but first can we address the topic of surprisingly miserable weather: Didn’t we already establish that this was a painting taking place in London? Okay, any other questions?

And now, about the repainting – Even the most experienced Street Artists will tell you that sometimes your painted wall plans can go awry, and Ms. Hayuk needed to take a little more time to paint this one over till she got it right. “I don’t plan out my paintings before I start,” she says of her process, and you realize that reversals and re-painting may also come from her desire to be in the moment.

Hard to imagine and hilarious to hear about, but Maya actually feels like she has to steer clear of certain stylistic influences that may crop up unannounced in her paintings. In fact during her creation of “Melt the Guns” a number of these unwelcome styles were simply lurking, ready to insinuate themselves into her compositions.

Herewith is a shortlist of the marginal, cliché, nauseating, or “very scary” influences that can take over her mind-melting color palette and lead her astray if she is not vigilant:

Circus

Pre-school

Burning Man

Renaissance Fair (not always bad she says)

Head Shop (which also can be sometimes ok)

Bagel Shop/ College Campus Café

Tim Burton

Nightclub (Roller Disco/ Bowling Alley influences notwithstanding)

During this ornery install, Maya says, a combination of many of these stylistic third rails shocked her fluorescently. “Unfortunately, somewhere along the way on this particular painting I WENT THERE,” she laments with some humor in her voice, “I spent days re-painting in a massive un-doing process. Underneath all of the black and white stripes is another entire mural that I painted that included elements from my list and beyond.”

Want to see a picture? “No – I didn’t photograph it! I just ‘black and whited’ over it.”
