I make art from the life that I am living..

 

The 1970s

In 1971 I moved to Kenya in East Africa. I was 7 years old and my creativity was blossoming by way of writing. My father was working on his dissertation and with no television in the house, I found myself making a novel narrating the tale of several orphan children as they traveled through fantastic worlds at sea and under- ground.

I hadn't yet thought of my self as an artist in fact I hated the fact that all the other kids could draw these great rally cars, in 3D no less! This was mine:

The 1980s

In High School I was in jazz band and about to get into punk rock, sell my saxophone and start singing in a punk band I named Entropy from a book I read by Jeremy Rifkin . I had no interest in art, but I remember getting encouragement from my art teacher.

Highschool

By 1983 the band played their first gig and I made some art. I'd been rally interested in type fonts as a kid, but now i was making T-shirts and stencils and some flyers. I really loved the work of Raymond Pettibon, Blinko, and the art on Crass Records but at the time had not noticed the tight professional production and design of the works that I now understand is anti- commercial pop- art.

These are a few mind maps I made during the formation of Entropy, the punk rock band I played in for 1983- 2012 and a few early art pieces.

The 1990s

In 1990 I was living in Venice, California at The Lincoln Place Apartments. I was working nights in television post- production, had a girl friend in a coma, whom I would visit at 4am, nap for a few hours, and then go to Santa Monica City College where I was re-taking classes I'd failed years earlier. I also had a painting class; maybe it was the sleep deprivation and the sadness, but this is when I started painting. At Lincoln Place, I painted ten paintings. I still have one of them (Nudist Auto Club before and after ) I just painted on/into it after dragging it around for the last 15 years!

In 1994 I enrolled in a local art school. This is where I made the decision to pursue an art career. I'd sold my first paintings after my first critique with professor Laddie John Dill.

The 2000s

By 2000, I had my first show at a gallery in Venice and in the course of moving to Santa Monica as rents in Venice had become ridiculous, (in the old days Santa Monica was too expensive), I decided to take my art to the beach. This became an amazing adventure (where I came up with the name "fake art" for my website), and going to the Venice Boardwalk launched my career. I set a goal to sell 100 original paintings and supplemented my income with print sales. During this time I was extremely prolific (more than usual) and in 17 months on April 22 2003 sold my 100th painting. and made a good 100 more small originals and began work on larger paintings..

 

 

Below is the first painting I sold on Venice Beach. The image links (In fact most images on tour pages link to index pages of catalogs of work.) to the first paintings I sold to people I met on the Venice Boardwalk.

Venice Beach, California January 2002

"Hinne-biscuits", little 10 dollar paintings on wood tiles, in a basket, all sold.. By this time I'd met many of the hard-core regular artists on the boardwalk. Selling art there is very much like selling in the art world.

April 22nd, 2003

On April 22nd (Earth day!) 2003 I sold my 100th painting to Jeff Huso. The art piece below (called "The Hinne-100 Project",) is a list of those first 100 painting sales and the people's names who bought them, and a log of small painting and print sales, owners by place and for fun profession.

This happened down on the Venice Beach boardwalk,. a place I owe my career to. By then and from there I'd met some truly amazing people. (link to a 2013 show in Venice at Semi-fine Art on Abbott Kinney)

This group of small paintings were made from photographs of friend's and collector's cars. Also a special body of artwork from the remains of creation periods going back to my youth when I lived in Nairobi, Kenya in the early 1970s up thorough my time in Los Angeles (where I moved when I was 4 in the late 1960s.) I re-purposed silk-screen prints and drawings made in high school, college and drawings completed in my studio in Santa Monica as recently as 2006.
