Exacto blades and knives are one of the most diverse tools in contemporary urban art. They can be used to cut out stencils or even create origami sculptures out of cardboard. The upcoming art show on October 4, 2011 at Bar Basic, titled “Cut Out For This: A Cutting Edge Art Show” will feature works using sharp edges from local artists. Thumbprint Gallery will curate the exhibit.

One of the artists exhibiting is Elena Karavodin, who had originally started her art career painting customized portraits after receiving her BFA from the Laguna College of Art and Design. Karavodin's work has been shown in various juried exhibitions through out the U.S. The artist has since then set aside creating custom portraits to focus on pursing opportunities with her fine art. This will be her first exhibition with Thumbprint Gallery.

Keemoworks is another artist showing at the event. The artist's style consists of intricate multilayer stencils in black and white. Many of his pieces have up to ten layers of stencil painting. Some of the venues the artist had previously shown include, Thumbprint Gallery, Bar Basic, and the Onyx Room. Keemoworks is also in the studio preparing for his upcoming featured show at Thumbprint Gallery in December.

Some of the other artists exhibiting include Michael Mahaffey, Matthew Land, Nite Owl, Jason Gould, and Patrick Seibt. There will also be live painting from Mofo, True Delorenzo, and Sharif I. Carter. Live DJs will provide the soundtrack.

The event starts at 7:00 PM and runs until 12:00 AM. Bar Basic is located at 410 Tenth Avenue in downtown, San Diego. There is no dress code and no cover. However, you must be at least 21 years old to attend. Google Map.
