Hi Everyone,

Now we’d like to introduce you to Loring Taoka.


Loring Taoka’s points of departure are ambiguity and otherness, utilizing various approaches to reinterpret everyday items and tropes, creating work that is minimal in form and color. Images and our understandings are subverted, transformed, and re-presented to create a sense of aesthetic arrest, discordance, and confusion. Loring Taoka received his BA from the University of Toledo in 2008 and his MFA from the University of North Texas in 2011. He currently resides in Brooklyn NY and is a baller.

Workshop Description

Makin’ it Pop – applying spray paint to metal

This workshop will go through the basics of applying spray paint on metal. Attendees should bring in small metal samples (or I can provide some) and we will go through the motions of cleaning and preparing the metal, as well as spraying and some finishing techniques.

Please check back tomorrow with more of our extended previews.
