What is Art Crasher?
Art Crasher is all about YOU, the artist. Art Crasher promotes and exposes new and upcoming artists on artcrasher.com. Each month Art Crasher has an online art show which features five galleries on the site. The five galleries are "Photography", "Visual/Painting", "Off the Canvas (installation art)", "Video" and "Street Art (coming in November 2012).
Art Crasher also includes interviews with more established artists and "Spotlight". The interviews provide advice for new artists and let them know how to get a foot into the art world and how to gain more exposure. Art Crasher places one artist in the "Spotlight" each month. The "Spotlight" features an interview and solo gallery of 20-30 pieces.
Behind Art Crasher
I'm Hollie and I am the founder and creator of Art Crasher. I fell in love with art as a child. My Dad was a graphic designer and I would spend hours playing with his graphic design tools on his desk. I took a leap of faith in 2011 to follow my passion. Couchsurfing led me to find my husband (he was my first host in SF) and I left a life of politics in Canada to pursue a life of art in California.
I met amazing, unknown artists while traveling to over 15 countries between 2008-2011.In places like Havana, Cuba, artists opened their doors to their homes and art studios. I wanted to not only share their work, but also their stories. Moving to California pushed me to throw myself into my passion. I feel so lucky to have been featured in shows at 1650 Gallery (Los Angeles), Black Box Gallery (Portland), Arc Gallery (San Francisco), Wide Open Art Show featured artist (Brooklyn) and Billboard Art Project (Atlanta). While doing these shows, Art Crasher was born.
