A Common Crayon

Anyone going to be in LA this weekend? If so, then call yourself lucky, you get to go see our fellow Montrealer Aaron McConomy's latest show! That is so not fair.

Aaron McConomy was born in the fragrant pine forests of Alberta, Canada. Disillusioned after a strict conceptualist education at British Columbia's Simon Fraser University, he was on the brink of giving up art for chess until a chance meeting lead to the formation of the art gang known as the YPF. (if you haven't yet, check out the YPF yearbook at HQ, it's basically a "decorate your whole apartment" in a box)

Since the founding of the YPF, he has shown extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada. His current obsessions include zeppelins, fixed gear bicycles and girls with cute ears. His very first solo show will be at the Garage Gallery in L.A., launching 18 August 2007 for one night only (that's tomorrow people) . The show is unofficially/officially called "A Common Crayon," which is actually an anagram of Aaron's name and a pretty fine one at that!
