Lin Shih-Yung - EclectixThe Bananarama of Lin Shih-Yung (Shih Yung Lin)

We just love Lin’s bizarre paintings of banana people, placed in everyday scenarios – using chopsticks, pouring tea and sometimes in random playful gymnastic positions. They are wonderfully off-the-wall and truly surreal in every sense of the word. His imagery has a vintage palette, speaking of warm lost days.

Scott Hove’s Cakeland

Artist Scott Hove, our favorite local master of teeth, art, design and all things cake, will be closing down his monumental Cakeland in Oakland. Scott is moving to Los Angeles where he just purchased a warehouse, downtown. If you haven’t had a chance to wander through Cakeland, his strange fantasia of decorated creamy artworks – make sure you don’t miss this last local chance to take a trip through the gargantuan installation!
