Jessie

In our final episode, the spotlight is on notorious Philadelphia Yarn Bomber, Jessie Hemmons.

And remember, this Friday, November 12, join yours truly along with HAHA Magazine and all of our amazing artists at Paradigm Gallery to celebrate the completion of the Dutch Umbrella Project.

DJ PHSH will be spinning starting at 7 PM – which is when the beer starts flowing. The gallery is located at 2020 South Street and we will be pumping art and antics into the evening. Proceeds will benefit children’s art programming in Philadelphia. On behalf of HAHA Magazine, I thank you so much for all your support during the production of this project – we can’t wait to see your faces on Friday!

HAHA MAG Presents: The Art of Steve Cleff

Philadelphia Artist, Steve Cleff describes his work as “fluid beauty”. “It’s the balance between chaos and order,” he says, “the transition from thought to reality, of seeing things in a new light.”

Steve is also a featured artist in our Dutch Umbrella Episodes. And because he’s book up with shows, and running around co-directing the Philly branch of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-art School we couldn’t tie him down for his official Dutch episode. But he did send us the next best thing…

We’ll be bringing you a peek at Steve’s umbrella next week.
In the meantime, check out more of Steve’s work, by jumping on over to www.fluidbeauty.com
