This week’s coffee craving robot comic is in honor of Kahwa Cafe where Frank Strunk III‘s newest work will be showing. I’m happy to announce that I’ve been working with Frank on a few pieces and our collaborative work will also be featured. It’s been a great experience and I’m excited to show you guys.
It’s funny because there have been a few times I’ve wanted to blog about Frank’s work but kept thinking I should wait until he was having a solo show or until the next wearable art show. If you would have told me 2 months ago I’d be writing about us collaborating I don’t think I’d have believed it. When he called, I was kind of shocked. You never expect someone you are a fan of to be a fan or yours. It’s kind of awesome though.
The upcoming show will primarily feature smaller new solo work by Frank in which he combines his metal work with photography. It’s freaking awesome. The collaborative pieces feature some of my 3d figures / art dolls as well as painting on metal and wood.
If you aren’t already familiar with Frank Strunk III’s metal and mixed media, kinetic, or Industrial wearable art, you have to check out his website. You can also see some of his art in motion on his YouTube channel.
Here’s a couple of photos of his past work in case you need additional enticement to see more.
Industrial Wearable Art –
The opening is this Saturday from 7 – 9 at Kahwa Cafe (South) in downtown St. Petersburg.
I know many of you are from other parts of the country or planet, so just stay tuned. I’ll post some photos in a future post.
