Wish Recap: “All But Reason” Exhibition from Trey Moseley

Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on June 26, 2013 in Events

When it comes to showcasing some of the best up and coming artists Atlanta has to offer, look no further than ABV Gallery. Proving true, this past weekend ABV hosted the premiere exhibition “All But Reason” of artist Trey Moseley. Moseley, also represented by ABV, unveiled a combination of paintings and installation all under the same banner that consisted of works that were both serene and violent. “All But Reason” is a completely unique experience that confronts viewers with the question, what would we see if we could peel back our flesh and draw our dark and savage nature to the surface?

At the show’s opening this past weekend, we had the pleasure to view the works and catch up with the man behind the art. So take a look at the images below, as well as some quotes from Trey Moseley.

How did you get associated with ABV Gallery in Atlanta from a farming town in middle Georgia?

When I initially moved up here I had a friend that lived in a party house here in the city, one of those places where time stops and people enter in waves. I was asked to do a large scale mural in the space. As I was painting I met a man in circle glasses and nice boots. His name was Ash Hayer. As we began to hang out, and we sipped our drinks, he told me that he worked at a design firm/gallery and that I should stop by. I decided to stop by. That was 3 years ago. What is the underlying story behind the All But Reason exhibition?

What’s the theme that ties all of the “All But Reason” pieces together?

The underlying theme is the unknown. My interest isn’t in telling my story but allowing people to think for themselves, come to there own conclusions about my work, and in doing so maybe the world around them. I only use my life as reference because it is there in front of me, it’s all I know. We are all conditioned into reality differently and because of this we react differently to the objects around us. I am interested in creating a vessel of possibilities and meanings to provide the viewer a mirror into there own understanding of the world.

What’s the next step for Trey Moseley?

To become but a storm drenching everything in it’s path.

Sneaker Con Atlanta 2013 Recap

Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on June 16, 2013 in Events

On June 15, 2013, the sneaker community of Atlanta took a pause as individuals from all walks of life, ethnicity, and income descended onto Dominique Wilkins Gym on Campbelton Road for Sneaker Con Atlanta 2013. Everyone from novice sneakerheads to downright footwear aficionados were in attendance hoping to either flip their pairs or discover a gem that they missed the first time around. Vendors sold everything from plastic wrapped exclusive sneaks to socks and jewelery as individuals walked around boldly lifting their pairs in the air, showing off their inventory in hopes of making that big profit. Most of the sneakers there having released at Wish at one time or another, it was great to see the community come together in such an event as this. This was our first time covering Sneaker Con, but it will surely not be our last. And after looking at some of the photos below, you’ll understand why.

Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on May 10, 2013 in Events

Despite the announcement that they would be shutting down their operations after seven years of successful business, celebrated street artist KAWS and his OriginalFake imprint have been steadily rolling out new Medicom figures throughout 2013. The latest debut arrives in the form of the recognizable “Passing Through” Companion figure. Offered up in two colorways – all-black and tonal grey – each somber character is seen perched with its head in its hands. The “Passing Through” Companion is something that KAWS has frequently returned to, having seen exposure most notably in the ongoing larger Companion statue traveling exhibition as seen in Atlanta’s former, “Down Time” installation.

Both of the characters in black and grey are now available directly from Wish. Orders can be placed by phone order by calling 404.880.0402 ext #2 or via email by sending a request to orders@wishatl.com. Retail is $425 USD.

Spinback Thursdays Recap ft. DJ Dibiase

Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on May 3, 2013 in Events

This Thursday, we had Atlanta’s own DJ Dibiase come through and provide the sounds for our first Spinback Thursdays! Between spinning, we got the chance to catch up with him and ask a few questions. So check out the interview and photos below and get familiar with The Million Dollar DJ:

So how’d you get your start?

I got my start by kinda sneaking into clubs when I was 17 years old and putting myself in the right position with promoters and other DJs and they got me the opportunity to DJ at their events and parties. But even before that I would make mixtapes in highschool and pass them out on the bus or wherever.

Where’s your favorite place to spin in Atlanta?

My favorite spot to spin is where I’ve been for the last 3 years. Whiskey Park in the W Hotel. I do every Friday night there. You got everybody from your local celebrities, your artsy fartsy people, to your Owen Wilsons and Spike Lees all come through, so it’s a fun place to be. You never know what to excpect with it being a hotel.

Who have been the top 3 people you’ve been able to work with so far?

My top 3 in no particular order has to be Trinidad [James] who used to come to my parties when he was younger and we just kinda hooked up from there. I did a screwed and chopped version of his mixtape so that’s how that got popped off. Other than that I’d say DJ Chemist who’s an OG DJ in Atlanta, probably my favorite DJ in Atlanta if not out of all DJs across th world. He’s always showed support. Number three are my partners from this party I do called All Vinyl Everything that we started a year ago.
