When two worlds collide, beauty is born. Thats exactly whats going to happen at Woot Bear Gallery when JP Neang & Candie Bolton have their show KAMIKAKUSHI – “Walking With Spirits” this weekend. Another show not to be missed if you’re around the area, if you’re not make it happen as this will be your chance to see JP Neang & Candie Bolton art up close and personal. Pick up your jaw on the way out.
An Artist & Creative Director, JP’s work has been showcased in various galleries in the US and globally. She continues to push the boundaries of drawings, landscapes devoid of color with images that evoke stillness and playfulness. She creates landscapes devoid of color accompanying imaginative characters that evoke feelings of longing. Her work is strongly influenced by “space”, “pause” and “balance.”
JP’s passion in the creative world extends beyond her art. She has taught creative education (21st century thinking, creative engineering, & the arts) for several years working to inspire the world with her current project called “Imaginary Atlas”, an initiative to bring back the act of creating to children on a global platform.
From humble beginnings in a small town, Candie has managed to make a name for herself as a self taught artist and toy designer. In 2014 Candie began painting and designing toys and in that time has collaborated with countless toy producers including Lulubell Toys, Toy Art Gallery, and Max Toy Co. Today she is working as a full time artist while painting soft vinyl toys for Toy Art Gallery on the side. Her style is colorful, sparkly, heavily focused on line-work, and clearly inspired by her love for Japanese culture.
Opening Reception is on August, 20th at Woot Bear Gallery. Both JP Neang & Candie Bolton will be at attendance at Woot Bear Gallery, reception is 6-9pm @ 1512 Haight St, San Francisco CA 94117. http://wootbear.com/
