Sweet Tooth: Super Sweet Group Show Report

Last Saturday, Munky King was the place to be. Their opening reception for Crowded Teeth’s ‘Super Sweet Group Show’ was poppin’.

Sweet Streets, in collaboration with Crowded Teeth curated an amazing group show with artists such as: Luke Chueh, Eimi, Miso, Martin Hsu, NICO, Mizna Wada, Angry Woebots, among many talented artists.

All of the art was inspired by the works of Crowded Teeth. Of course, we had a little hand in pushing the magic into the world wide web.

The show was a collection of coloful, magical, and cute that only Crowded Teeth could inspire.

We don’t know what was the best part, the art, the magical Crowded Teeth Cupcakes, or the awesome food from Lomo Arigato!

Black in White and Red All Over

Earlier this month, we helped Munky King release the newest creation by renown artist, Luke Chueh.  “Black in White and Red All Over” was not only hugely successful for Munky King and Luke Chueh, but we were amazed at the level of dedication of Luke’s fans!!

The staff at Munky King got up bright and early on October 2, 2010 to decorate their store and gallery space with art and knives. Not to be out done, we showed up to help break a sweat. From blood stains, to knives, to bunnies bleeding all over, there was lots of decorating to be done.

However, no matter how early any of us showed up, Luke’s fans had all of us beat. The early bird line ran down the entire block. The first two fans in line even confessed to us that they had driven from Arizona and had been waiting since 7PM the night before!!! We admire that kind of love of art, especially because they waited not just through the night, but through a swelteringly hot Saturday.

Sweet Tooth: Sweet Streets 2, The Opening.

Day One – Saturday’s Opening Reception Night

Gallery Nucleus gets very sweet. 6%DOKIDOKI & SO SO HAPPY Windows

Last Saturday night kicked Sweet Streets 2 with a carousel of fun, fashion, and food. If you couldn’t make it down for the opening reception last weekend, the Sweet Streets show will be showing at Gallery Nucleus until October 4, 2010. So please check it out before it leaves! There were a plethora of taletned artists from all over the world in this show.

Day 0: Bubble Punch & the Nucleus Staff at the space setting up and finalizing the contests!

Before the glitter and sparkle of the opening reception, 6%DOKIDOKI had their model casting on Thursday, September 9, 2010. All of our lovely finalists were invited for a private interview and fitting with Sebastian Masuda (designer for 6%DOKIDOKI), Yuka, and Vani. Though only eight of our finalists were able to make it, everyone at 6%DOKIDOKI were very pleased with their selected finalists, and found it hard to choose only a few.

Our 8 Finalists: Mandie, San, Chloe, Danielle, Bebe, Chrissa, Calla, and Ari, with Sebastian and the 6%DOKIDOKI Shop Girls.

Because it was so hard to choose only 4 from the finalists, they decided to go with 5 (FIVE) girls in an unconventional selection method!
