Some show coverage.

There has been a bit of coverage of my Retropolis show popping up in Blog land.
Take a look :

It’s a very warm day here in Columbus, OH today, but if you happen to walk inside Rivet Vinyl Art gallery and catch a glimpse of their featured exhibit, “Welcome to Retropolis,” you may very well be able to cool down just a little bit.

Right on the heels of their impressive Labbit gallery, the new exhibit, which is home to steampunk artwork and customs by UK steampunk artist Doktor A, runs until the end of June.  The good Doktor has over thirty different unique pieces on display, all of which are available for sale through the Rivet homepage.  You can also view the show via the store’s ustream page.

The enigmatic Doktor has created an extremely incredible world, and each character that inhabits it has a fully fleshed out and wonderfully enchanting back-story.  From the cheery Barton Von Basch and his aerial troubadours, to the retired Colonel Rombus, who is still waiting to lead the armies of Retropolis to war, each and every citizen of this stylized world is unique and charming.

Also on display were some of the Dok’s custom works, all of which are just as creative and stylized as the paintings and drawings they’re based on.  Looking at them in person I half-expected to see them come to life and start to mingle with all the people in attendance.  I would love to see this world and the people that live within it fleshed out into a movie or TV show.

The show runs until June 30th, and plenty of the works are still available for sale.  Take a peek at the gallery to see what you’re missing out on, and if you happen to be in Columbus this month, be sure to stop by and check it out for yourself.   I guarantee you it’s a trip you won’t regret.

Doktor A’s solo-show WELCOME TO RETROPOLIS launched over the weekend on the 7th and Rivet Gallery has his paintings, artworks, sculptures and customed toys viewable online now – which frankly had me speechless – especially the sculpts and custom-work – CLICK THRU for some of my select (mirrored) favs 🙂

The exhibit runs thru June 30th and I can only but imagine seeing it up close and personal (I’ve said it before and I’ll said it again and again and again LOL).

Do contact laura [at] rivetgallery.com if you have interest in any of the remaining pieces … Meanwhile, the good Doktor is interviewed on Vinyl Requiem (oh man, I remember interviewing Dok in ’06 tho – seems like a lifetime ago :p) – and I’ve never stopped loving his work … say anymore and this post’ll read like a blooming lurve-letter, innit? *le-gush*

Thanks to everyone who visited the opening of my “Welcome to Retropolis” show last night. Wether it was physically getting out to the gallery to taste the Scones or virtually squeezing down a web tube..
I will post links to any coverage as it starts popping up. Expect some photos later.

Also this morning it seems I have been included in a long article called called “Steampunk Rising”. You can find it hear :
Rounds up a lot of the tech modders and makers out there.
A good basic guide type thing..
