Many Thanks to MudBay, Uptown Art Walk, Art Primo for the paint sponsor! Sakte Like a girl, Diamond Parking for donating the lot and Michael Tsay For photos.
Also thank you to 179 & Merlot for all your hard work making this event run so well!
Female street artist/skateboard collective called Few and Far; a Few talented and dedicated painters spread Far across the country. Their west coast members planned to road trip north this summer with Seattle as the one of their destinations, so of course something big had to happen here. That’s where Bombsheller came in. We agreed to host a show for them and call it Hi-Technique: Beyond the Glass Wall, a play on our obsession with hi-tech and their ambitions to go beyond the glass walls of the gallery art world, beyond the glass wall of the male dominated graffiti community, and beyond the glass wall of the retail fashion industry.
On Wednesday june 18th, while the girls painted a mural on Mud Bay’s wall with the help of local artists John Osgood and Jonathan Wakuda, Bomb Sheller opened our doors to the Uptown Art Walk to showcase their work on our walls. This was good fun, but it was merely a preview for the grander invitation-only event set to take place Friday June 20th.
There was a DJ, bomb themed booze, a juice mixologist, and seventy pounds of food. The Few and Far members showing art that night – Dime, Deity, Meme, Merlot, and 179 — showed up with their nails painted to match their leggings. MADlines rocked an a cappella performance and didn’t miss a beat when Meme joined the stage to battle with her own rhymes! When the DJ’s set was up, we put on salsa tracks and danced. Everyone stayed an hour past the official end time.

Well… This was a very exciting year for us!! A lot of projects went on in 2013:
For example, We had a group art show in San Francisco. We were invited to paint large events and art festivals, We also got featured in a well known graffiti magazine called “Infamous”. We also are Working on some new videos that will be coming out soon!!. We did fun creative photo shoots with friends and F&F members.
We participated in large mural productions as a crew and separately all over the world. We even put on a skate jam with live art for youth. There were so many side projects we were a part of that we weren’t able to fit all of it in this post. To keep taps on what Few and Far is up to this year Follow us on Twitter /FB or IG @fewandfarwomen More info HERE on our work.
Few&Far artist Meme, Reds, Jenn Ponci, Moven, our buddy Rabbit Rye plus our videographer Jaime Sanchez set out on a short road trip Supported by IRONLAK SPRAY-PAINT to the Few&Far group art show at ART PRIMO SF. Shortly after our video guy Jaime got off the flight from Texas he was thrown into the whip with three of the gals at 1am to paint some spots that were pre-planned out for video project Meme is directing. Any who three of the spots were just not a go… So Meme knew of this cutty bridge spot they could do a large crew Spell out.
Meme & Reds finished this at 6am headed to the next location with 0 sleep.

Art Murmur Oakland St fair
Art Primo SF had sponsored the paint for the Street fair live painting.
This mural was organized by Graffiti artist Meme, with help from the fellow members of the Few and Far Crew. Meme came up with the theme to help express the love we all share for animals and nature. This is a statement to bring awareness that our world is priceless and we should all work together to maintain its preciousness.
The huge mural was painted in just one weekend, The Seattle girls (Hops, ksra, and Merlot) came in hot and handled things all on very minimal sleep. The artists all crammed on a couch like a doggie pile for the 2 nights. They closed their blood-shot, crusty, paint covered eyes, only to get up and do it again! “The early bird crew”.
With the late night painting give or take a few artist, always seem to fall on 3 suspecting characters (Reds, Meme, Agana). With them, delirium and paint fumes kick in tough. These ladies were “protecting” the equipment and paint by laughing all night, while rolling round on the ground doing pretend BBoy poses!
Dime and baby sister Khoda came up from Oakland to paint. Dime was pregnant at the time so she cautiously painted with a mask and used only brushes, staying away from direct spraypaint contact. Meanwhile, Khoda, filled in Dimes character with spray paint to help her big sister execute.
Also, the very talented fine artist Ursula X. Young, originally from England, and now living and working in Grass Valley Ca, came from up north to paint the lovely women with animals all around her. Each woman that painted, drove or flew good distances to add their unique flavors to the project, this wall shows all their efforts to tie it all together.
Artist that painted: Erin Yoshi, Ursula X. Young, Jenn Ponci, Meme, Ksra, Hops, Reds, Agana, Dime, Merlot, RPZ, Megen Devine and Baybay-FNF Khoda
