Lomography World Tour x Blik

Lomography World Tour x Blik

The Lomography “Diana World Tour” has been traveling all over the globe hosting the world-famous Detrich Collection, as well as custom clone and vignette exhibitions unique to each stop. After a long journey, the collection of over 100 vintage cameras is finally making a visit to the Lomography Gallery Store in Los Angeles starting on Thursday, October 14.

This stop of the tour includes a collection of Diana F+ cameras that have been customized by some of L.A.’s finest artists, illustrators, creative types, Lomographers and philanthropists. And Blik is one of them! All proceeds from the sale of the customized cameras will go to the participant’s charity of choice. Blik has chosen the Boy and Girl’s Club of Venice.

Below is Blik’s customized Diana F+ camera that’s up for bid. To see it in person, join us for opening night on October 14th to kick off the silent auction, plus there will be drinks, live music and free gifts. If you can’t make it, then stop by the gallery anytime by November 14 or place your bid online for this cool one-of-a-kind Blik wall graphic or on any of the tricked out Diana F+ cameras. On November 14th there will be a closing party to finalize any last minute bids for the clones.

For more information visit the Diana World Tour Los Angeles blog and check out all the customized cameras.

UPDATE: The opening party rocked! Good crowd, great music and we had fun checking out all the Custom Clones included in the silent auction. Below are a couple of pics from the event. See more in Blik’s Flickr pool. The exhibit is on display until the closing night on November 14th so there’s still plenty of time to place your bid for a Custom Clone in store or online.

BLIK CUSTOM: BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF VENICE MURAL

BLIK CUSTOM: BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF VENICE MURAL

Our latest custom project takes us just down the street to our neighbors at the Boys & Girls Club of Venice.

Wanting to create a one-of-a-kind mural that spoke to the center’s kids and teens, the 45 ft x 9 ft graphic was designed to express the energy and excitement needed to communicate the positive influence of the BGCV within the Venice community. The use of bold color, silhouettes of kids, abstract elements as well as organic forms, takes shape to create a funky yet playful design that shouts both Venice Beach and the BGCV’s mission as a positive place for kids and teens. The design is intended to inspire, motivate, and amaze those who enter the club. The mural is located in the community center – during the school year the room is used for the Kids Café, karate, chess club and special events. In the summer, the space is utilized for everything under the sun.

As you can see from the photos, the completed mural serves as a bold statement that encourages kids to be diverse, energetic and artistic. Plus the kids love it! Thanks BGCV for letting us keep our creative juices flowing. We look forward to working with you again soon.

As Manifest Equality prepares for its VIP opening tonight, we are thrilled to present a sneak peek of the space. Blik proudly transformed the raw space into a massive pop-up art exhibition that goes live tonight with events continuing through Sunday.

We created the exterior banner for the giant sign outside; a quote “with certain unalienable rights, that among these are … liberty and the pursuit of happiness” that wraps around the interior of the space (pictured); interior and exterior graphics for the onsite shop; the logo/entrance wall that proclaims Manifest Equality’s mission statement and an exterior “Equality” arrow on Vine (pictured.)

“Being a part of Manifest Equality has been a tremendous experience for Blik,” said Scott Flora, co-founder of Blik. “The high caliber of artists involved have created an inspiring visual call to action that speak volumes about the fight for equal rights.”

The Manifest Equality gallery will be open to the public, March 3-7. Visit http://www.manifestequality.com/ for more details.

NO STRINGS ATTACHED NO STRINGS ATTACHED Our friends and neighbors at the Boys & Girls Club of Venice invited our very own Scott Flora and Jerinne Neils, along with Christina Cody from Storyboards, Inc., to adjudicate at the Fine Arts Exhibit, part of their, “No Strings Attached” Art Show this past January 15th. Winners from this local competition will be submitted to the Pacific Regional Fine Arts Judging & Exhibit in Kennewick, WA and could go on to the National Fine Arts Exhibit, displayed at BGCA’s annual National Conference. The judges were responsible for selecting nominees, based on the age of the member, skill and artistic sensibility expressed in their work. Out of 50 entries, 4 pieces from the exhibit were selected. Jerinne shared, “Scott and I had a great time and were thrilled to participate. There are some very talented artists in the Venice club. We’re hopeful that these winners go all the way!” Good luck artists!
