Few & Far 5th Year Anniversary Block Party

June 4th, 2016 held significance and was a major milestone for Few and Far. Five years ago on that date – Meme, Founder of Few and Far, organized a massive mural project in Oakland and pulled together a group of women from all over the United States. Since then, members of Few and Far have created numerous murals across the globe, building with and empowering communities worldwide. Our collective is now comprised of 17 talented female artists that include women from Nepal to Ecuador. Every year the group gets together to celebrate that anniversary, and their hard work and achievements by creating large scale murals in different communities.

This June 4th weekend, the mural took place in Sacramento, in the alley of 24th and S streets in midtown. The Few and Far ladies were joined by10-15 other female artists from different cities and states, roughly totaling 22 muralists who painted all weekend. It was kicked off by a neighborhood block party featuring local vendors, Dj’s, and live mural painting which took place on a sizzling hot Saturday in June and was well attended by the community and neighbors. This was the 3rd Few and Far organized mural on this wall. img_3107

Mad C “Bits and Pieces”

MADC’s opens 2nd of May at Gallery Wallworks in New York. Here is a little info on the show:

“Even though heavily abstracted, MadC’s canvases are compiled of graffiti pieces assembled through energetic, layered brush strokes. The many transparent layers create an intriguing depth in each piece. For this exhibition MadC chose to paint mainly small format pieces – bits and pieces. All 20+ canvases have never been seen before. In addition to the canvases, gallery Wallworks will release a new 8 layer MadC screen print. Gallery Wallworks and MadC welcome you to the opening on Saturday, May 2nd.”
