UPDATE: DOSE’S Derechos Humanos (removed) ~ Central

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

UPDATE: The “Derechos Humanos” mural has recently been removed, less than three months after it was originally put up. Here’s a message from DesertArt Lab‘s facebook as to why:

In DEC. 2011, in the predominately Latino neighborhood of Garfield, a motivated collection of neighbors, community thinkers, and artists gathered to activate a space of urban blight with ecology, art, and community. Mural art was created by DOSE which read ‘Derechos Humanos’, human rights in Spanish. desert ArtLAB orchestrated a mass planting of cacti creating a living land installation to symbolize a sustainable relationship with desert ecology and food practice. Hood Ride, Phonetic Spit, Nestor Bravo, and Phoenix Youth Hostel were also all collaborators and artistic producers.

It has been brought to our attention a few land-owners in the neighborhood became offended by the mural art and its message. Although the owner the fence gave permission to paint the project, DOSE’s mural art has been removed from the community. We’ve learned many are against art which attempts to recognize truths of the social, political, and ecological realities facing Arizona communities.

The removal of the mural art symbolizes the significance of the project’s message. It was a privilege to work with such a talented and committed group.

DOSE & Bugg’s Public Eye ~ Willo North

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

From Willo North Gallery‘s website:

The exhibit features stunning Papel Picado portraits which Bugg created in collaboration with artist Molly Mendoza, as well Bugg’s latest creations exploring our obsession with celebrity gossip and pop culture icons. Also on display are new works by DOSE, a multi-faceted visual artist whose new work includes large, wall-sized paintings and smaller works on paper—stunning, colorful political and social commentaries that employ traditional graffiti art materials, like stencils and spray paint, in a new way.

Images from DOSE and Peter Bugg‘s exhibit, “Public Eye”, showing at Willo North Gallery through the end of April.
