• 8,000 Gallons of Printer Ink

    Take 16,000 pounds of red, blue, and yellow ink cartridges put in a semi-truck and tip it over and this is what you might get. 

    A semi carrying 8,000 gallons of printer ink flipped over on an interstate in Peabody, Massachusetts earlier this morning, resulting in  street art, literally. Thankfully no one was injured.

    I don’t think KRINK markers could do a drip art of this proportion.

    Our project list continues to grow here at RxArt and we are excited about an upcoming project with artist Trenton Doyle Hancock.  We are working together with Trenton Doyle Hancock to transform an entryway to the Pediatric Imaging suite at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, Texas, to a place that will provide hope and inspiration to young patients.  This will be a great project and RxArt will be sure to update all of our followers out there on the progress of this and many more exciting new projects from RxArt.

  • Gung Hay Fat Choy!

    Yoshitomo Nara:  Bunny Boy

    Happy Chinese New Year!!!  Today marks the start of the new Chinese lunar year.  This year is the Year of the Rabbit.  If you were born in 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987 or 1999, also all rabbit years, this is your year!!!

    So if you remember those paper place mats from your favorite Chinese food establishment with the Chinese Zodiac Calendar on them, then this is what it says about you Rabbits. People born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They are most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig, and Dog.

  • Nominee for: Best Actor - James Franco

    Yesterday, it was announced that RxArt’s friend and 2010 Gala Co-Host, James Franco, will not only host this year’s Oscars but will be amongst the distinguished nominees for Best Actor.  He is nominated for for his amazing lead role in “127 Hours.” The film was also recognized with nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Adapted Screenplay and Original Score.  We wish him the very best for this year’s nomination. We are sure it won’t be his last.

  • KAWS Lights Up The Standard Hotel

    RxArt friend and supporter Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS, had a great 2010.  Last year we saw everything from his successful solo exhibition at the The Aldrich Museum, his newest coveted vinyl toy releases to a signature clothing line, Original Fake.  Not to mention that KAWS released a book about his outstanding work detailing his early works, commercial products, and insight into his world.

    The start of 2011 for KAWS picks up right where 2010 left off with another great collaborative effort with The Standard Hotel.  

    KAWS lights up The Standard Hotel by literally leaving his mark on the light bulbs!  It is a collection of 3 light bulbs - Red, Purple, and Green filaments bearing the KAWS’ signature XX.
