EVENT: DOZER'S WAREHOUSE
Perry Porter aka Perry Paints recently was involved in the Dozer Warehouse art emporium event in the Beacon neighborhood of Seattle. They converted a very spacious warehouse space into one very large winding and twirling canvas. 70 artists and multiple pieces from each artist. It was like nothing any of us had ever seen. There were painting in every medium, tons of complex graffiti - so much so it was difficult to intake all the detail surrounding us as we walked in and out of rooms up and down stairs and traced long hallways attempting to see every piece. There were handmade cages lofts and areas that seemed almost like crawl spaces. We did two laps around the space as it became a warehouse on fire around the midnight hour when all the cool kids showed up. The first lap was a breeze and honestly a little overwhelming, the second lap included standing in line for 15 mins to get back inside and was far more focused, the goal was to get photos of pieces didn't get the first lap because we were too in awe of what the next room held. There was also a raffle we were hoping to win on the way out but we left empty handed. Before our exit and before the live performances of the evening we did get to see Dozer himself and hear him gives thanks and praise to all the artists faces that filled the space. For a one night only event it could not have been more impressive and the quality of artists were breathtaking. One more shout out to Perry for being involved in so many great art events and keeping us in the loop. One time for Izzy too her piece was fye.
