The Underbelly Project - Exclusive new photos

Below are some exclusive new photos of the Underbelly Project. This project seems more and more amazing the more we see new photos of it emerge. Truly fantastic.

Quoted from

In 2009 a project began four stories underneath the skin of New York.
For 100 years, a massive subway station sat unfinished, unused, undiscovered.

Over the course the last year, artists have been secretly escorted into that station to leave their creative mark.
Unobstructed by the pressures of commercial sales, email, or daily routines, each artist painted for one full night.

The original entrance has since been removed and darkness has reclaimed the station. It has become an elusive pirate treasure of contemporary art.

Jordan Seiler Solo at Vincent Michael Gallery

Yesterday, Abztract had the pleasure of joining artist Jordan Seiler on a trip to Philadelphia where Jordan is going to have his first solo show in over 5 years titled "Taken From The Tip Jar".

New works will include 16 multimedia drawings, a small video installation, and a few street pieces. Anyone familiar with Jordan's work (on Public Ad Campaign) knows that some sort of outdoor advertising has to be challenged with anything he does and this show is no exception. All of the drawings are framed in phonebooth advertising structures procured from the streets of NY over the past few months. While Abztract knows many of you will not be able to make it down to Philadelphia, the entire catalogue will be available online in the next few days and any inquiries can be directed to the Vincent Michael Gallery.

Here are photos from our exclusive trip with Jordan as he got his work up to Philly at VMG:

Gaia / Sten & Lex at Brooklynite

This weekend (10.16.2010) Brooklynite Gallery is hosting Sten & Lex along with Gaia.
This should be a sweet show and worth checking out (especially since as of this moment, there is no rain due for Saturday). So come down. Wether you are in Brooklyn, Queens, Jersey, The city or heck...even in North Carolina. Just come down and hang out. Check out some great art and feel the good vibes of Brooklynite Gallery and friends. We know we will.


In recent weeks, it has come to our attention that a gallery based in Boston named Art Asylum Boston has been involved in treating their clients, customers and artists in a very poor and unprofessional manner.
We at Abztract can not erase the fact that we have worked with AAB in the past (taking part in the Art Strikes Back art show as well as mentioning their upcoming shows and events on this very blog). But, what we can make sure is that people out there do not get scammed in the future by the terrible business practices that Art Asylum Boston are currently being accused of.

We at Abztract and BirdGunBlog love art. We love the hard working artists who work with us, we love the artists who inspire us daily and we love the people who keep this culture moving forward. Whether its supporting the culture by donating artwork to a charity, purchasing art, blogging about recent events, photographing found art on local streets, or even a gallery (large or small) who help give artists a chance to share their talent with people who enjoy seeing it, the support of the people in this culture is what makes it so great and really what makes us here enjoy working in it day in and day out.

We are saddened to see that there are people out there who take advantage of those who love and appreciate the arts and use it to serve themselves an unprofessional manner.
So, we just want to let our fans, family and friends know that Abztract and BirdGunBlog have no affiliation with Art Asylum Boston or their actions. We hope that the people at AAB will face their actions. Whether its standing in front of the people they have taken advantage of, or having the law catch up to them. We hope that the people who ended up getting the bad deal in the situation get what rightfully belongs to them.

JMR ads color to NIKE

JMR, a friend and a featured Abztract artist was commissioned to do work for NIKE for their Chicago "House Of Hoops".
I am not a fan of basketball myself. I am familiar with words like "flagrant foul" and "Court" but it mostly relates to my ex girlfriends.
Well JMR (or as his RUN DMC cover group used to call him: Jam Master R) did these wonderful pieces which were then installed in Chi town. Congrats to J. Now when is the RUN DMC coverband going on tour again?
