The Bicycle Gallery @ Oakland First Fridays – April 5th 2013
The Bicycle Gallery had a smooth ride out to the April edition of Oakland First Fridays –
it was a warm sunny afternoon, people were out early checking out the art, hitting up the
bars along Telegraph Ave. I set up this time at the main entrance to the event – at Grand &
Telegraph Ave. – in eyeshot of The Fox theater and the grand opening celebration of the new
Sculpture Art Park. Since the last time The Bicycle Gallery was out, I made some alterations
to the cart to save some weight and give me better storage and display space. Thank you to
everyone I met that evening for your support and wonderful conversations!

The Bicycle Gallery debut @ Oakland First Fridays
Photos of the debut of my latest project, The Bicycle Gallery, at Oakland First Fridays Art Festival.
I’ll be riding the newly built gallery cart a few miles to the monthly festival from my
Oakland studio, reducing my overall carbon footprint for attending the event.
After taking off February, I’ll be returning in March with The Bicycle Gallery and new prints for sale!
- PRESS RELEASE -
“Local Oakland Artist, Gregorio de Masi, will be debuting his latest large scale art project this Friday,
January 4th, 2013 at Oakland First Fridays Immersive Art & Community Experience. His new project,
The Bicycle Gallery, is an environmental way for Gregorio to transport and exhibit his original paintings
and stretched canvas Giclée’s at local Art events. Pulled behind his Steampunk Art Bicycle (recently on
display at Monarch SF as part of his solo exhibition,“Voyage”), the gallery cart is a 4ft x 4ft platform with
a six foot tall, double sided birch wood wall, stained dark to match Gregorio de Masi’s overall artistic aesthetic.
The Bicycle Gallery, as well as De Masi’s Steampunk Art Bicycle are mostly built out of recycled and
scavenged materials. Visit the Artist’s website to view his Art and upcoming events: www.GregorioDeMasi.com”

I recently finished cutting a whole bunch of birch panels for my next wood series.
Birch is considered one of the most Archival woods for painting. Many of the other

These are Museum Quality Archival Giclée prints on stretched canvas – over the past year I’ve

quality and attention to detail – this image was captured at 100% (2ftx4ft) with the latest scan
back technology available. The image is scanned line by line through a high end digital camera
lens to be able to replicate every tiny detail and brush stroke at 100%. Prints are available through

“ANCIENT FUTURE” (in-progress)
Painted Live @ Symbiosis Gathering 2012
May 18th – 20th, 2012
Live Painting at Symbiosis was an incredible and intense experience – Dust storms, high winds
and the hot dry desert air made painting on this 8ft panel a good challenge –
During the hot days my paints dried up a minute after hitting my palette, and the dust settling
on the painting’s surface washed out the shadows and sucked up the highlights. The picture
above shows the painting that was finally revealed to me after layers upon layers of dust were
washed off when I got back to my studio. I’ll be putting in more time on “Ancient Future”
to get it ready for public viewing sometime soon. I’ll post pics of the final painting here on my blog.
