Sometimes a life-sized piano-grilled toy robot wants to share its love so badly it is willing to risk piloting a child’s tricycle in order to bring it to you.

Despite what you may assume from that innocent face, this robot has been around the block.  I added the piano key smile in honor of the musical mayhem of Portland’s own Solovox and a round of his flyers.  Stumptown Underground included Hot-Wheeling Robot Love in their 8th issue “Everybody do the Robot”, and good: a gallery asked him to announce their first robot_love exhibit.

This is the kind of brilliance that’s possible with two Art Directors; one that designs beautiful promotions for the best talent in town, and one who is seven years old.

If you’d like to keep an eye on the art here in Portland Oregon, Greg P. of Hungry Eyeball has done some of the leg work for you.  Shows populate an art events calendar next to a selection of local artists and a list of Portland Galleries.

You’ll find a particular appetite on this “visual art buffet”; one that prefers aerosol over oil, and a humourous character over a stuffy still life.  There’s still a full meal here with enough variety to satisfy.  So grab a plate and head down the line, you may find a new favorite.
