The Dice Show

I love being a nerd. If there is an opportunity to force my nerdy-ness on others, I will never hesitate! So, I was thrilled with the idea of doing the dice show.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the En Masse Crew, the general idea behind the collective is to bring together artists from many backgrounds to work on large scale, black and white murals, each bringing their own style to the project but also merging into each others work to create a totally new aesthetic.

This piece is still at Eaton's Center.

The Dice show consisits of forty-five 2' x 2' panels, which we constructed last weekend at the Furni Creations shop.
There will be three drawing session, which the public is more than welcome to watch, on May 6th, 13th & 20th from 6 pm until 9 pm. After the end of each session, a set of dice will be rolled and the results will determine the placement of the tiles for the next session. Keeping this in mind. each artist will have to take into consideration each panels strength on it's own (they will sell individually for $200) and how it works overall with the rest of the panels.

It will be interesting to see how the larger piece literally morphs each week as the drawings grow and the panels are shuffled. The gallery will be open all month for you to come a track the En Masse crews progress.

And don't forget, on the 28th of May, there will be a finishing party here at HQ.

See you soon!
