Hi-Technique: Beyond The Glass Wall

Art show recap

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.

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. 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 and Far bring Warrior Women to Art Basel Miami 2013!

 

Few&Far just returned from Art Basel Miami, where we represented Ecuador, California, Florida and New York City. We ended up scoring a bigger and more prominent wall than originally planned in central Wynwood, painting the outside of a slot machine refurbishing factory. Big thanks to the owners of the building, our sponsors Ironlak and Luna Rienne Gallery, and photographer Alexadra Henry! Being one of the few all-women walls in Wynwood this year, we got lots of great feedback, and our uniquely different strong feminine styles meshed together seamlessly on a Miami-turquoise background that popped for blocks. Four large female characters by Kazilla, Ursula X Young, Toofly, Deity, and lettering by Agana now grace the walls of 375 NW 24th street on a mural entitled “Warrior Women”. Incidentally this year ‘Wynwood Walls’ showcased women artists, including Toofly, in their gallery show: ‘Women on the Walls’. This was an important year for the women of Few&Far to be representing. The wall is dedicated to the legendary Nelson Mandela, who passed away at the start of the project. Thank you again to all who joined and supported!

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
― Nelson Mandela

The festival will showcase the creative power of street art, liven up the drab walls and attract people to the immense outdoor art gallery as well as spark a creative discussion about transportation. Spectators will watch large murals and sculptures come to life and color and creativity explode on site all while being able to interact with the artists.

A “Paint the Walls” pre-party will take place on Wednesday, August 21 where attendees can tour the site pre-festival and take part in wheat pasting walls and every attendee will get 60 seconds with a can of Ironlak to create a collaborative mural that will be incorporated into the festival.

It’s like a jungle errr day!!

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”.

8066320730_f1e682795d_b

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!

3365_10152119208660123_2003780892_n

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.
