The stars of the show were The Unwantables. They hope to make a comeback in 2008. I showed an animated movie I made, which I need to post on here I guess. I also had a bunch of my process work for the movie, about 300 Unwantables sculpy figures on the floor, paintings on the walls, and then I gave away 200 sculpy figures that night (gone in an hour) that were packaged with my artist statement about the show. It was a fun night but I was too tired to enjoy it. If you have any interest, google "marius valdes VCU Thesis" and you can read way more about it than you probably ever wanted to.
I think the 8 foot Unwantable Painting when you walk in the door of the exhibit lives in the basement of the VCU Grad student building at 1315 Floyd Avenue in Richmond, VA. I should really go liberate him, or maybe someone else should! Let me know if you do and we'll feature him on the blog.

A new friend named Rita recently purchased this painting I did a few years back from LIFT Coffee in Richmond. I forgot how much I loved doing those big pieces. I would do more if they were easier to ship or store them. Moving 4x8 paintings gets a bit difficult after awhile. This picture shows some of "The Unwantables" playing with a horse. You can't trust those Unwantables.

These are paintings left over from my recent show at the Metro Space Gallery.
Numbers 1-19 are acrylic paint on 24 x 24 gallery style canvases. Each painting is $100, this includes shipping.
Numbers 20-24 are acrylic paint on collaged comic book newsprint on 18 x 36 gallery style canvas. These are each $200 (including my beloved Captain America) and this includes shipping.
First come, first serve. I will post "SOLD" as quickly as I can but will sell each piece to the 1st e-mail buyer I get whether the piece is labeled or not. If you would like to see a better high res image of any piece, let me know and I will get one by the weekend.
