Self taught artist, Hugo Perez from New York has added this very cool organic sculpture of a spray can titled "Spray Paint Can" to his collection of works on Saatchi Art.
Perez uses a variety of mediums. Drawing being his primary medium, he also creates paintings, sculpture, wood carving, printmaking and uses ceramics as a segue to creating new ideas.
He quotes, "My work is the product of being aware of our limited life span and that art is one of the few things that fill the void of existence".
Quite different to his other works, this sculpture can be identifed as a true New York icon, and his inspiration for this is clearly drawn from the New York urban environment around him.
I love the fact this piece is afforable too, at AU$400 this is a bargain for a one of a kind, hand made scultpture. Definitely one to add to the mantle piece!

This week at Cold Krush Store/Gallery we facilitated an aerosol workshop at the back of the store. The back wall recently painted by Fleur OFK, Tarns RCF NA MS from Adelaide, South Australia, and Pike TCF from Los Angeles created an inspiring backdrop for the particpants as they painted away freely and creatively for a solid three hour block. The young and old joined us for the workshop where they learnt all about can cantrol, and the different caps used.
With so many brands and different caps on the market it can be quite daunting to a new comer to this art from, so we provided an introduction to all the aeorsol paint we stock at Cold Krush and the different caps you can use for the different cans. We personally love the Montana level caps, Grey hoods and the classic NY Fat cap, our particpants found them easy to use and manouvre also.
The total cost is $140 per person, this includes all materials, and the use of quality aerosol paint along with a 1m x 1m quality artist canvas of your work from the day to take home.
If your interested in taking part in our next workshop, mark your calanders for the winter school break as we will likely be putting on another workshop then, or register your interest by contacting us to ensure you kept up to date with any news for our next Aerosol Workshops.
A big thanks to all the particpants from our latest workshop, you're all so talented, we hope that you persue your artistic endeavours and hope to see you at another one of our workshops!!... Enjoy your Easter Break everybody!!...Register Your Interest Today!

Orbs, Adelaide born and based StyleWriter, has been painting with aerosol since 98-99. He focuses on the manipulation of letters, the heart and soul of aerosol art. He is persuing his passion for Art by undertaking a bachelor of visual art at Adelaide University. He is also an apprentice tattooist at Keystone Creative located in Blackwood, Adelaide.
Tarns (The one who freaks the funk), has been painting graffiti since 1987 and is best known for his ability to perpetually reinvent his style, all the while preserving the more traditional elements of the art. This has made him an icon in graffiti culture. Tarns now divides his time between his family, operating Cold Krush Store/Gallery and his art.
