Announcing the launch of an artist in residency programROW DTLA
With over 30,000 square feet of space dedicated to the arts, ROW DTLA is pleased to announce the launch of an artist in residency program which will unite national influential artists, innovators, and creatives. Stay tuned for a summer long program of progressive cultural events, beginning with the launch of Elsewhere Studio at ROW DTLA to celebrate their first print publication.
THE LINE UP
Elsewhere is a forthcoming international print journal centered around the experience of travel. While many publications tell readers where and how to travel, we believe in the why.
Through heartfelt stories, though-provoking essays and interviews, and entirely elsewhere produced content, we hope to inspire an experience-driven audience at a time when the opportunity to travel is more accessible than ever before.
Elsewhere’s unique subscription-driven distribution model and juxtaposing print and social components lend itself to both online and offline storytelling. Its inaugural issue, The Escape Issue, will share stories of both physical and mental sabbatical, exploring themes of escapism written and produced from within our influential network of content creators.
Although we have no mailing address, our physical space at ROW DTLA will serve as a home base and backdrop for our network of creative contributors including photographers, filmmakers, journalists, art directors, illustrators and artists.
ADS Studio is a Multi-Disciplinary creative Studio Located in Los Angeles that curates Unique design experiences, large scale murals, and one of a kind hand painted art patterns. ADS Studio combines branding design, custom paintings, screen printing and large scale mural painting.
Patrick Vale (b. 1980, London) is an artist working between New York and London. Inspired by architecture from a young age, Vale creates mesmerizing urban landscape drawings from the artist’s unique and selected point of view. Investigating each city’s sights, smells, and energy by walking, speaking with locals, and sketching his surroundings, his illustrations are at once immersive cityscape studies and omniscient semi-aerial views. Drawing freehand from the top of emblematic buildings like the Empire State Building or the Top of the Rock, Vale plays with depth, scale, and the city’s dynamism by adding a new dimension to the world’s iconic cityscapes.
Vale has recently completed commissioned works for Apple, BMW, Pentagram, Samsung, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), BAFTA, Surface Magazine, Fortune Magazine, British Airways, and Andaz Hyatt.
The artist has also had critical acclaim worldwide with two “viral” short films on the Internet. Both videos show Vale’s journey over a month in creating one of his signature pieces, Colossus, a large-scale, aerial view illustration of New York City.
Claire Wrathall, Editor of Art Quarterly says, “Vale paints and draws highly intricate cityscapes in a style that, depending on the detail I focused on, put me in mind of the great diorama photographs of Sohei Nishino and the paintings of Enoc Perez.”
Architizer observes, “Vale’s “Empire” is an act of bravura, and as such, it’s exceedingly enjoyable to watch him map out the geography that unfolds south of the Empire State Building. In keeping with Vale’s other work, the line work is willfully scraggly, imperfect without being whimsical or cute.”
Patrick Vale has a degree in Graphic Design from Central St. Martins, London. Vale has been selected for the ROW DTLA Residency (Los Angeles) in August 2016. The artist is represented by Bethanie Brady Artist Management.
