well, it's been forever again and I said I would update you on the shop's revamping. Truth is we revamped for the 1 year Anniversary which went really good, all the art was great and got some pretty decent recognition. Over the time the art stood up I believe Socky Chop sold the most pieces at about 7 plus 1 commission gained from the recognition of the showing. Actually I was really inspired by his work as was our curator Mr. Tobar. We're thinking about moving the shop to the next level and I believe Socky Chop may jump on board with us....uh oh, Imagine what Tobar, Myself, and Socky Chop can do with our space. Only time will tell but I bet you if it happens it'll be a matter of time before we have the most creative and true urban art spot in Orlando. Back to the actual show though, we def have to shout out DECOY & NEOSOE as well. Both came with amazing art and great wall murals. DECOY came with a horror theme that shocked everyone, and was probably the main photo op wall. I'm going to add his work to the blog in a week or so, video and all. figured it's cooler and the effect of greatness last longer by stretching out the night in multiple blog post. After that I promise to also post the pictures of NEOSOE's wall and art which really popped. I personally think NEOSOE is one of the most complete Graffiti writers in Orlando, maybe he doesn't get the Gallery & Mainstream recognition because he came up as a bomber rather than a piecer. From an outside perspective I see that it's hard for bombers to get into design using sharpness and cleanliness, hopefully NEOSOE proved he can shift through worlds and styles though with this past show. I truly believe he can do both bombing and piecing flawlessly. Anyway, back to SOCKY CHOP for now, here's part of what you missed:

So yeah, he amazed all of us. His hidden Skeleton women are always a fan favorite and of course was expected but what had everyone talking was his Celebrities as Zombies. Everyone was taking pictures and asking question, it was a great night overall. If you're interested in purchasing one of his pieces that may not have been bought yet you can check the pricing and status at WWW.REDEFINEBOUTIQUE.COM
Well, I'll be back soon to update both DECOY's & NEOSOE's contributions to the show as well as DIVINCI (of Solillaquists Of Sound) & BEEF WELLINGTON's performance. I'll also let you know where we're going with the shop. As of right now the shop is closed for business reasons but when we decide to get back on pace you'll be seeing new faces and new products. Stay tuned....
