We’re always up for collaborations! Any ideas?
roto asked: The David Polka work(s) are incredible! What is the process used to create those?
From David Polka
After I’ve sanded down the wood surface, I do a light wash of acrylic to prime the wood and to create random, organic elements I can react to. I usually pick an image or motif that serves as the anchor for the rest of the piece, whether that’s a skull, a face or silhouette, or one of the other recurring objects I draw. From there its a very deliberate, organic process, with a lot of time spent considering my next move. Check out my Instagram @slowcoolassault to see some images of the process. Thanks!
hotsaucetuesday asked: I did not see a title to David Polka's installation, but am curious how long it took him to produce the work, if it has sold, and what the asking price is. This is the first I have seen your work. It immediately grabbed my eye and brain...quite striking. Congratulations. I am drawn to woodworking, but do not have anything approaching David's graphic design talents. Thanks and best of luck with future projects. Tony
The installation is currently available for $4000. Message us back if your interested.
From the artist-
Hey Tony, thanks for your interest. The background elements of that piece took about a month to complete, with another month on the artworks themselves. The installation is untitled in its current state, and was actually displayed in a vertical configuration last year for Stand Tall pt. III at Old Crow Tattoo & Gallery here in Oakland. I like the idea of modular artworks that can be re-arranged and re-visioned. Check out my website www.DavidPolka.com to stay up to date with my latest work. Thanks!
