ABOVE GROUND ART EXHIBIT

Hey everyone! Been a while but I’ve been hard at work…
If you’re interested in seeing my latest paintings on wood I have about a dozen pieces showing right now.

Ongoing Exhibit: Feb 4, 2008 through April 26, 2008. There will not be an opening reception for this event, sorry.
Location: PremiumGoods 2416 Times Blvd. Houston, Texas 77005

If you’re in the Rice Village area one day please stop by and take a look. These other two artists are really great. Should be cool!

HOUSTON STREET ART

Hey everyone! It’s been a while…

I’ve finally decided to devote the time & energy to make my private Graffiti Photo collection public. I’ve got hundreds of shots from around 2005-2007. As time allows I will be uploading in batches of 10 to the following flickr page. The master plan is to display images from other cities once I’m done with Houston. Probably starting with NYC.

These humans have created some beautiful imagery over time and I feel very fortunate to have captured their work because most of it is non-existent at this point. I hope you enjoy these and derive as much inspiration from them as I have:

My Website

Since people have been inquiring, I thought I’d take the time and post this little bulleting promoting my artistic endeavors.

For those of you who didn’t already know, I have a personal website that I update from time to time. The address is DerekShumate.com.

Please have a look when you have some free time. I hope you enjoy your stay!

Art For Truth Website Launch

Since I’ve been working so hard on this new project for social change I thought I’d blog about it here to let everyone know of the subtle website launch last night. It will naturally evolve over time and eventually include other artists and information. The link is: http://www.artfortruth.info

Enjoy!
