Gaia & Imminent Disaster

gaiadisaster2Opening Reception: Friday, June 26th 2009

Choosing a moniker after the Greek goddess of the earth, Gaia uses animals, folklore, fairytales and stories from other cultures to convey a narrative within his pieces. Having first been exposed to street art by Cheekz, Gaia’s awareness of street art came as a truly momentous direction for his artistic endeavors. Gaia continues to experiment with different processes as he brings his works to the galleries and the streets of NYC and beyond.

Imminent Disaster first started doing street art as a way of culture jamming. Since then she has gradually been developing pieces that explore the tensions between present day and historical New York. From bits of cobblestone and defunct tramlines to old warehouses gutted and resold as hip condos, Imminent Disaster turns a classical eye toward modern urban life, and reveals what has been lost.

  1. Have you ever thought about creating an ebook or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog based on the same topics you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e-mail.

  2. Hello Cristine.

    I apologize for not replying sooner, this was just unearthed.

    I would be happy to talk with you more about creating an ebook as well as guest authoring if this is something you are still interested in pursuing.

    Is now currently a good opportunity to resume a conversation?
