Re-cap of Few and Far in 2013

FNF2013

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.

Few&Far in Wynwood Miami for Art Basel 2012

Few & Far Women were asked to paint The Cigar Factory in Wynwood Art District during this year’s Art Basel; a prestigious art show containing more than 260 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin American, Asia, and Africa, showcasing works by more than 2,000 artists in Miami, Florida. Located in a large venue housing a beer garden, a large bus with DJ and yummy food vendors, this venue was set up by Mixed Media Collective in conjunction with Juxtapoz Magazine as one of the sponsors.

Just four days before arriving in Florida, the twelve ladies flying in from all over the US to paint this event were informed by The Cigar Factory that they had changed their mind about having their wall painted. Having their full theme and colors chosen for the large wall promised to them, the ladies were put in quite a predicament; no wall, and twelve ladies ready to fly out – work schedules had already been rearranged, airfare booked.

Strangely, The Cigar Factory decided they didn’t want “graffiti” on their wall. The Wynwood district was developed by the late Tony Goldman; the famed builder who transformed NYC’s SoHo and South Beach in Miami. It’s odd that The Cigar Factory would turn down a mural by Few & Far (a talented crew of artists using various mediums) being that much of the buildings in Wynwood are covered in artistic and tasteful graffiti – encouraged by the building owners. Not only did The Cigar Factory take back their wall, they pulled out their spray paint vendor, The Pain Yard, who would have provided the paint for the ladies wall.


Despite the setback, the Few & Far ladies would not be defeated by narrow-minded attitudes. Thanks to the awesome and dedicated people at The Mixed Media Collective, the ladies ended up with the perfect wall. Located behind The Brisky Gallery on 24th St, the ladies had the right amount of space needed to tackle their rainbow theme. Painting two levels of pieces rather than one created a beautiful sense of movement as the colors transformed from one piece to the next. The challenge of painting single-tone pieces was accepted and executed perfectly by each artist. Doing a theme such as this meant that each artist had to pay attention to the colors used by the artist next to them – and to use that same information when selecting their own colors. The wall became more than just a wall of pieces and characters – but a true collaboration.

The gallery was kind enough to supply the ladies with scaffolding, ladders, lights and even hammocks and swings for relaxing. Additionally, the buzz generated by the gallery from their highly anticipated show (featuring artists such as Alex Yanes, Kazilla, SK545, Andrea Bartos, and many more) meant that even though the ladies had lost their advertised location – they still had a constant stream of art enthusiasts, other writers, and others intrigued by their work stopping by the wall and joining the party.

Next to the wall being painted by the Few & Far ladies were the very talented artists Rone and Pia, working on their own murals. It was a great seeing the walls really come together. Professional photographer Autumn Swisher, an all-around awesome person, documented this entire experience.

In the end, despite the attempts to hold the ladies back, the Few & Far ladies rose above and busted out an AMAZING wall. They met wonderful people, caught up with old friends, and even received fan mail that was sent to the gallery for them! The ladies extend their warmest wishes and thanks to everyone at Mixed Media Collective, Brisky Gallery, The paint Yard, and all of their supporters and fans that came through and continue to show love.

As a Few & Far fan myself, I commend these ladies for their love and dedication to the art, and to each other! I’m proud to be a supporter and be involved with such an amazing crew of talented artists. Chief Editor Ashley Dwyer
