Event Details

1AM Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Eddie Colla fresh off an extended international tour with his new collection, “Nothing Lasts Forever,” opening August 6th, 6:30 – 9:30 pm in San Francisco.

Free, but an RSVP is appreciated.

The show will revolve around the images Colla has left behind in his travels along with the thoughts and experiences that are fading and changing with the passing of time. The show closes September 9, 2015

From childhood we are instilled with a strong desire to obtain the unattainable – “Forever” as the mark of quality, persistence or true emotion. We often drag this desire into our relationships, our view of the world, even our consumer habits. It is a flawed aspiration and unrealistic, as it is the desire that never arrives and goes against the natural order of the world.

Since 2005, Eddie Colla’s wheat pastes and stencils have been found throughout public spaces in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Eddie’s work first began to garner national recognition when his street art began incorporating images of Barack Obama throughout the 2008 Presidential election. His growing popularity landed him attention on internet blogs, features in six published books, and participation in the “Manifest Hope Art Gallery” shows at the 2008 Democratic National Convention and at the Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C. His designs have been transformed many times over, from stickers, album and magazine covers.
