Argentina-based Gustavo “Kidmograph” Torres has taken over the web with his imaginative flips on sci-fi and pop culture imagery. His Tumblr of original art drips with alien beach postcards, lysergic cityscapes and dreamlike GIFs beamed direct from Skynet’s pleasure center. For the past few years, he’s created groundbreaking visuals for A-Trak as his personal art director, including two insane animated Low Pros videos and all of the motion graphics for the upcoming Gold Gone Wild tour. We’re proud to present Kidmograph’s debut solo exhibition as part of the FG Artist Series, showing in ou Brooklyn store on 536 Metropolitan Ave in Williamsburg. The opening is this Thursday, June 4th, from 6-8pm; limited edition prints will be for sale, artist will be in attendance, and refreshments will be served.
There’s no one in the game quite like A-Trak. The DJ icon, Fool’s Gold founder and Grammy-nominated producer wears many hats (pun intended), but he still shines brightest on stage, combining forward thinking musical selections with true turntable fireworks. Once a year, the flag-bearer of #RealDJing takes his spectacular show to small venues where he can be closest to fans. And it’s that time of year again.
This June, A-Trak will be joined by MPC beat king Araabmuzik and dancehall futurist Ape Drums on the Fool’s Gold “Gold Gone Wild” tour. A-Trak is known for his largely improvised sets, and this time you can expect Araab to join in on the acrobatics. Acclaimed artist and frequent collaborator Kidmograph provides brand new stunning visuals, and every venue will get its own Fool’s Gold pop-up kiosk, emulating the Brooklyn label’s flagship store.
Says Trizzy: “I’ve been in the studio for the last couple months. The first thing I want to do now is play shows where I can spin whatever I want for as long as I want. The best environment for that is clubs, so I picked my 6 favorites in North America. To me these are like incubators where I can try out new routines that later make their way into my festival sets. I can’t wait to push my limits every night!”
