Best to everyone on this Day of our Lady of Guadalupe ❤️🙏🏼✨

All framed and ready to go for tonight’s opening at @nielsenartsframing. There’s a bunch of affordable work on display from a great lineup plus beer and homemade gumbo! See you tonight, 6-9pm, 1537 solano ave in Berkeley. #flatfilesshow #davidpolka

Thank you so much to everyone who purchased work over the last few days, your support really makes a difference. I’m also super excited that so much work has found new homes, as much as I hate to see them go, it feels great to send them out into the world for more people to enjoy. The SOS sale goes until midnight, last chance to get 40% off anything in my store. Again, if you’re interested in larger work and would like to discuss a payment plan send me a DM or email, I’m happy to work something out. Thank you all for your continued support, it means the world to me. 🙏🏼❤️

Hey friends, this is not an easy thing for me to ask, especially in light of how much I’ve been spamming you all with holiday sales. I don’t think I need to point out how costly and difficult it is to live here, esp. as an artist. Without a regular source of income, fluctuations in demand and invariable project delays can create a really unstable financial situation, which is currently where I find myself. Rather than bore you with the granular details of why I’m broke, I want to extend an offer to anyone who has wanted to purchase work but hasn’t pulled the trigger yet. Starting tonight, all orders in my store will receive 40% off when you enter the code SOS at checkout. This includes everything from Night Songs vol. 1 & 2, prints, and originals. I’m prepared to discount larger original work up to 50%, if there is a particular piece you’re interested in send me a DM or email, I’m happy to set up payment plans as well. Thank you all so much for your continued support and attention, even if it’s just hitting that Like button it still means a lot. 🙏🏼❤️

What a day, what a year this has been. This past week I’ve been reflecting on the reverberations of the Ghost Ship Fire, how so many dear friends are still grieving, still reeling, still trying to find their way back to their center. In thinking about how much the Oakland art scene (as I experience it) has changed in the past several years, I can’t shake this feeling that our creative community has been stuck in a slow death since that night. A feeling that we’re taking hit after hit and while our resilience runs deep, we are all weary from struggling. The DIY spaces that were so crucial to Oakland’s creative ecosystem have all but vanished, the Art Murmur is overcrowded, over-commercialized, and a shadow of what it once was. Scores of seemingly well-established, successful artists have had to pack up and leave, bound for LA, Bushwick, or Detroit. The mayor continues to exploit our cultural capital for political gain while doing absolutely nothing to protect Oakland’s creative class, which feels more and more like an endangered species everyday. It’s when I feel most overwhelmed with these feelings that I try to remember Ara. How her boundless energy and passion could just roll over these obstacles, how her incredible clarity about the things that matter most shined through all the bullshit and the greed, and how exceptional she was at sharing it all with everyone she could. As we close out this year, I hope that this wave of joy, creativity, and love carries us safely through what is undoubtedly a dark and uncertain future. Hold your people close cause life is short and full of stuff. #arajoforever
