This is will be a fantastic show and party. Bringing together some of my favorite Portland artists, Portland DJ's, and a great SE venue.
The often imitated, never duplicated, OG vinyl art show, Vinyl Killers returns this October for another round of rescuing long forgotten records from the world's landfills.
This year there have been at least 5 other vinyl shows in North America alone and interest in the artform is at an all time high. After five annual shows and several touring exhibits Vinyl Killers remains committed to staying open call, independent, D-I-Y, and free of corporate sponsorship.
Since it's inception in 2003 Vinyl Killers has showcased well over 1000 records painted by artists from around the world. A quick glance at the VK website shows both the genres global influence and the absolutely amazing things that are being done with paint and old records.
Media recognition for this innovative show includes The Art Of Rebellion 2 and Stencil Nation, and features in numerous international street art magazines and blogs.Ãƒâ€š In 2005 Klutch, the founder and curator of VK, had the room that he decorated with painted records for San Francisco's Hotel Des Arts featured in Time magazine.
