Putting the eNVy in Denver: Beau Ritten

X: What is your name?
B: Beau Ritten

X: Where did you grow up?
B: Denver, Colorado and Seattle, Washington

X: What type(s) of art do you make?
B: I design and make printed, web and video things. I also make music.

X: What is the name of your band, and role do you play in the band?
B: The name of my band is Twin Peaks and I play the drums.

X: Who are your major influences in music or in art/design?
B: Lot's of metal, 80's films and comic books.

X: Do you work for an agency in town or do freelance?
B: Freelance

X: What pushes you to continue to make art?
B: Inspiration from my peers.

X: Can you give us an outline of your creative process (possibly for a project you’ve been stoked on lately)?
B: Usually an idea will come to mind while on a sandwich delivery and I'll rush home after work and sketch the idea and then create it in Illustrator and Photoshop. Same goes for a song idea but without all the sketching and computering.

X: When and where was your last show (music)?
We played at the Hi-Dive on October 8th.

X: When and where will your next show be?
Bender's on November 18th, and Old Curtis Street on December 2nd.

X: Do you have any art shows coming up?
No, although the band has introduced a visual element to the live show that I and Wes (bassist) have created… so it's kind of like an art show.

X: What are some of your other passions?
B: I spend so much time working and with the band that I rarely have any time off. When I do, I like to spend time with family and friends and read and watch stuff and do outdoors stuff like yard work. Going on road trips are fun too.

X: Where do you see your art career taking you in the future?
B: I'm open to anything just as long as I continue to grow and learn and work with rad people.

X: Any plans for a tour in the near future?

ART OPENING BY IAN ROBERT McKown @ Marion Street Tattoo/Gallery

Ian Robert McKown will be doing showing us all what he can do November 4th at Marion Street Tattoo. Describing his art doesn't do it justice. You have to come check it out!! even mini portraits of all the anchorman characters! GREAT ART, GREAT FUN! 8pm-11pm.

"I started tattooing in 2003 in Boulder, Colorado. I've always found myself drawn to what some would call 'realistic' tattoos, but only recently came into my own in regards to finding my own style within this genre of tattooing. I would have to say a big turning point in my tattooing, and more importantly, my art was when I picked up an art magazine containing an article written by David A. Leffel, an American artist who paints in the classic Flemish/Dutch old master style. I cannot stress enough what an eye-opener seeing his work was for me. It was as though I was seeing art for the first time in my life.

I began painting in oils in 2007. I've mainly focused on still life’s, and some portraits. I find this type of work very rewarding. I've been able to bring together some of my painting and tattoo styles, combining them into something fresh, and hopefully unique.

As with everything in life, my art is a study in hard work, and a constant desire to become a better artist, in both medias."

Marion Street Tattoo & Gallery

Ryan Riss + Tyler Krasowski + Kevin Hennessy

Illiterate presents an exhibition of works by three excellent artists working in two toned psychedelia. Ryan "Craptical" Riss, Tyler Krasowski and Kevin Hennessy strip away color in favor of strong lines and intricate values. Mashing together visual cultures each artist creates strange graphic objects that splice artisan traditions with contemporary irreverence. While related in tone, each artist retains a unique style arising from their overlapping yet individual archives of popular, underground and classic iconography.

The Industrial Revolution is officially over. After an era of cultural optimism and pure industrial might, the United States no longer finds itself in a booming manufacturing-based economy. Many plants have closed, supply lines slowed and our once-proud workforce has faded into office cubicles and super-store checkout lines. The revolution is dead and the result is a sprawling countryside peppered with barren smokestacks and blackened factory framing. Within that imagery lived the inspiration for a project that would ultimately become RuiNation.
