This Sunday the Coachella Valley Art Scene and Epidemic Skateboard Shop team up to bring the latest in art, technology and craft….Instaprints. Featuring the latest works from the multi-talented artists – Aaron Hansen and Rick Rodriguez – an art duo who have traveled the United States painting murals, designed and screen printed thousands of shirts, and most recently invented a new form art.
Hansen and Rodriguez have quickly gained popularity on and off the ‘screen’ with their Instaprints. We first knew these iPhone-Instagram-photos-turned-pieces-of-hand-crafted-art were going catch fire at the AOK (Art of Kraft) Art Shows when they sold every piece within an hour.
This Sunday the two will exhibit their latest works, an even more elaborate collection of Instaprints of different images and sizes that they have been working on for months now. We are so excited to be surprised what the future holds…not just in their hands, but what this will inspire all the people that attend the show as well. You may never look at your cell phone the same again….
Read the information and interview below for information on “There’s No Place Like Home”:
“Home is where the heart is. We live in a rare place and I like to give the “Insta-world” a look into the desert lifestyle. I try and show the sunsets, plant life, desert animals, art, everything the desert is known for. The “less is more” experience of the desert inspires me.”
- Aaron Hansen
