Swiv Tackle Circus

What better than good friends, art, an open bar and a cool new location in Ghetto By The Sea Oceanside? Scotty, Jason, Tina, Sean and I went to Swiv Tackle Circus‘ 2nd exhibition to see new works by Lisa Solberg. Lisa’s collection is called “I Spy Yin Yang”. I didn’t get to take pictures of Lisa’s art but you can find some on her website. Hope she won’t mind me copy/pasting some of it…

Lisa Solberg about her and her work:

I believe in expressionism with a mural/street art facade. Raw, energetic, truthful and as little as possible. Refined and edited and purged until you have nothing left besides truth. Simplicity is a vehicle to expose authenticity. The pure and conscience reality in which we all strive in this mayhem world. My comfort level lives in a chaotic world, the beauty of the unknown and the absolution in a numerical equation. I am a slave to natural numbers and have shapes and colors swimming through my head…

The exhibition/party was musically driven with some sick house music spinned by DJ BlackAss.

So what is Swiv Tackle Circus? Well, let’s see how they describe themselves…

Dreams really do come true in the world of Swiv Tackle Circus! Debuting the strong yet delicate tightrope balance of a clean, well-lit gallery in one circustacular ring pulled to an uber chic, tantalizingly premium boutique in the other. Walk into a space so large, you feel you are under the big top with Ringmaster Blackass as your guide! Once a child, always a child. The future is a sophisticated palace and we are here to satisfy. Part gallery, part boutique, über Gallertique.

I love the “part gallery, part boutique, über Gallertique” concept. Swiv Tackle Circus is a place where you can enjoy good art and shop for some of your my favorite brands such as Obey.

The Gallertique is also all about philanthropy! They actively support the Keep A Breath Foundation, a nonprofit breast cancer awareness organization unlike any other. Their mission is to help eradicate breast cancer by informing young people about methods of prevention, early detection and support. Through art events, educational programs and fundraising efforts they seek to increase breast cancer awareness among young people so they are better equipped to make choices and develop habits that will benefit their long-term health and well-being.
