Tomorrow from 12 until 5 pm Hellion will be hosting a one day only pop up show with Peach Momoko. I guess Uncle Sam’s melting pot is a long forgotten concept, hence Peach’s exit back to Japan next week. Come on by and check out a ton of recent work before she takes the good stuff back to Japan.
Fresh off painting one of the murals for Forest for the Trees here in Portland, Mhak is preparing for his first solo show in Portland at Hellion. Interdeco will feature new paintings, custom furniture and interior designs from one of Hellion’s favorite Japanese artists.
Mhak is collaborating with a few folks on pieces for the show. Collaborations featuring Ed Challed from Second Nature Design on a couple pieces of furniture, Offcraftworks on a series of clocks and Core on a skate decks.

Forest for the Trees mural festival has come to a close. It was such a great week with an exceptional group of artists. Yoskay, Joe, Dave, Tyrone, Kamea, Mhak, Enrico, Blaine, Zach, Gage, Mark, Taka, Jun, Marcelo and Erik; You guys are incredible and it was truly amazing working with you. Thank you so much. The city of Portland rolled out the red carpet for these guys and I hope everyone enjoys the murals. I would like to acknowledge the ridiculously good job Gage Hamilton did in acquiring equipment, walls, supplies and sponsors for the event. This guy is exceptional and it was great working with him on this project.
Artists are getting on planes, some are lingering for a while, paint is dry, hangovers nursed, sunburns treated and now sleep is required.
Check out the weeks worth of photos.
