We are proud to premier Drew Bachrach’s video American Sadhu.
The American Sadhu series is a collaboration between filmmaker Drew Bachrach and actor/clothing designer Tracy Powell. In each episode Tracy’s “Traveler” character explores remote and unknown holy locations around Los Angeles. This wandering mystic’s adventures and rituals are a riff of new age pseudo-spiritualism and postmodern folklore.
Drew Bachrach is a Detroit bred artist/filmmaker currently living and working in Culver City, CA. During the week Drew produces and edits video content for a wide range of clients while his weekends are spent in the studio working on large-scale acrylic paintings of empty backyard swimming pools.
The Arkitip Chronicles aim is to provide you with access to studios, behind the scenes looks at creative types and features on artists globally. We will also collaborate and showcase artists original film and video works.
In this spirit, we keep true to our founding principles:
Support the arts
Promote freedom of expression
Make art affordable and accessible
Thank you for the support.

We are proud to support Brett Amory + Derek Weisberg + Shaun Roberts: Conversatin’
“The subject of the sculpture is an anonymous Washington Square Park visitor. My initial intent was that I would make a sculpture that was very much my kind of aesthetic. Very stylized figuration. I think that really came through, but I found myself loosening up to match and emulate Brett’s painting style, as well as to accommodate Shaun’s style.” – Derek Weisberg
“At first it was tricky, but after about 20 minutes or so I realized that it was the exact same as painting a face on a flat surface. In some ways you have to think like sculptor but approach it like a painter would sculpt a painting. I think most artists are used to isolation and being by themselves. It’s nice to be in somebody else’s studio, especially if you can hang out with other artists that you admire and respect, you start talking about art and it opens it up.” – Brett Amory
“I consider photography to be a form of sculpture as well. Essentially you are just sculpting with light. So I think there are more similarities between the three of us than there are differences. I think the differences are just choice of medium.” – Shaun Roberts
Hand-Painted Sculpture + Limited Edition Prints will be available Friday 30 January 2014 at 12:00PM EST

Gathering past, present and future contributors, Arkitip uses the aforementioned principles as a foundation to pull together a motley crew of diverse artists for a group show entitled HIGHMATH. Named to describe the unusual relationship between the artists; be it string theory or chaos, the show consists primarily of work on paper including silk screens, lithographs and hand-done originals. Artists will exhibit both existing and never before seen work.
About Slow Culture:
Slow Culture is an independent art gallery + retail project space located in the historic Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park. Opened in August 2013, we have rebuilt the bones of what was once THIS Gallery, into a multi-purpose creative space. There is an art gallery with a thoughtfully-constructed floor plan to allow for flexible programming options such as: artist exhibitions + installations, lectures, workshops, creative meetings and retail pop-ups. The retail aspect of the space has also been extended to offer a carefully curated selection of books, zines, art prints, and various curios. We believe that by fusing every aspect of our business together, we can offer a more enriching and integrated experience between consumer, artist and ourselves.

Acting as curator, Arkitip is proud to announce our upcoming collaboration with Alumni Aaron De La Cruz for 55DSL and Birkenstock.
Aaron De La Cruz for 55DSL + Birkenstock
Curated by Arkitip
San Francisco based artist Aaron De La Cruz cryptic line work invokes an archeological inquisition that is suggestive of both ancient Mayan hieroglyphics and contemporary graffiti, allowing the viewer to relate, interpret and decipher the work on their own terms.
From his large matte black inverted sculptures, large scale outdoor murals and his stark two dimensional ink paintings, De La Cruz bridges the gaps between fine art and design, the sum of its parts being simultaneously both practical and decorative.
Further information forthcoming.
