632: [The New House of Steam]

Hello Everyone,

Well I have been real busy over the last year or two making my transition back to the states. I have also been a bit laid up recently as well so I thought it maybe time to do a bit of ‘House’ cleaning. I am going to make some template changes to enhance the archive searching and visual appeal. THOS has had the same template since day one in 2006! So if you see some changes that is me just tinkering away on the live site. In addition if you have any photos, stories(no news announcements please) ideas, hopes and dreams for The New House of Steam..hit me up at jasonoliva@gmail.com.

Hope everyone is well

The Time Is Now!

Cheers

623:Jason Oliva studio visit from modern art master James Rosenquist: ‘Stripey Horse’ 2011

Meeting and then having James Rosenquist visit my studio has been one of the highlights of my life and art career. He was solely responsible for putting the muscle into the art movement that would be called pop art. Being able to talk about life and art with someone with his accomplishments is something that I have not taken for granted…it has left me altered for sure. Especially having grown up staring at pictures like this:

and epic masterpieces like F-111:

Great stuff!

If anyone else would like to come down to Tribeca (21 Warren St.) for a studio visit just send me an email….there will be wine, or Bourbon

Cheers

So I have been away working hard with regards to art but now I am back, somewhat. So we had the third annual SHUT Shop Skate Summit [SSSS]. I am glad to say that in a matter of three years attendance has doubled in size! This year Rodney and I were joined by Michael ‘The Concierge” Cohen and next gen Smith-Kieran. Michael was just randomly rockin the [EN-JAY] shirt when I turned up. As per normal we chatted and set the skate world to right but the hot topic for me was the new Jamie Affoumado board that Shut put out. Its got killer graphics derived from Jaime’s Karate certificate and sick shape….We are gonna get these up in the shop ASAP, in the meantime checkout the cool new SHUT shirts, Eli killed it with this ONE

Great time

Thanks my Brutha’s

Jason

PS – Thanks for the kick..Sean K!

612: Cheers! Jason Oliva [New Paintings] Iphonage by Derek Rinaldi

Thanks to all the Skate Bruthas that came out for the show I only wish we could have had more one on one time. John Fudala, Michael Cohen, JR, Derek, two generations of Padulos, David Padulo, Lucas and Collin Padulo, Patrick Guidotti, an early appearance by Steve Rodriguez, Wig (who I embarrassed myself by not recognising but in my defense the last time I saw him we were in a police station, he was my height and it was 1987) Ken Deitz and his wife who went home with some art! and the King of all appearances Jay Henry and the lovely Amber. Jay it was so rad to see you as I was saying at the show you make up the triumvirate of my art heros: Jay Henry, Dan Tag and Steve Mannion. It was a great night that went on till the wee hours of the morning. I think the grand total was 4 double magnums of white wine and 12-15 Mag’s of red wine. And speaking of fine wine I even had a chance (I think sometime after Mid-night) to hand out the last of the fine wine…THOS and EN-JAY tee’s

too cool, cant wait to do it again.
