Moving fluidly between abstraction and figuration, Cameron Thompson presents a series of fractured animal portraits for his solo show “Perched,” opening September 5 at Loakal. The exhibition takes its name from Thompson’s desire for a sense of calm amid the hustle-and-bustle of daily life. The artist keeps himself busy with many endeavors: he’s written graffiti, taught in the Oakland public school system, started his own art gallery and painted murals, all the while developing his personal studio work. “Perched” symbolizes “the meditation before the flight,” as he puts it.
Join us for the opening reception of “Perched” September 5, 6-10 pm.
"Three’s a Mob" by Nite Owl. His owls are not the cute and cuddly type… Watch out! Just over a week left to see his show "The Pursuit of Slappiness." Visit us 7 days a week or browse the artwork at ebxloakal.com. #niteowl #loakal #art #painting @naito_oru
Nite Owl is a big 90s hip hop head and so are a lot of the folks who walk through our doors! A lot of people have been digging this piece, “Under a Wu Tang Moon.” #niteowl #wutang #art #loakal @naito_oru
Cameron Thompson is working on a series of paintings and textile pieces for his September solo show “Perched.” The title of the show comes from the idea of finding a place of balance amid the hustle and bustle of daily life. Birds are a sort of autobiographical symbol for the artist, who grew up surrounded by wildlife in Southern California. Learn more about the show here: https://www.facebook.com/events/559448257511510/
"Perched" opens at Loakal on September 5.

Introducing our newest arrival, “The Dictionary of Unhappiness” by collage artist Tyler Spangler and author Isaac Cronin. This book is published by a small local press called Little Black Cart and features lots of psychedelic visuals and poems/text that chronicle the many weird and crappy things in life from A-Z. Some call it pessimistic, others call it realistic. Either way the visuals will have your eyes glued. #loakal #tylerspangler #isaaccronin #dictionaryofunhappiness
