Nikki Greene – Photography

“My name is Nikki Greene and I’m a San Francisco-based photographer working solely in film photography. I mainly shoot 35mm, 120 film and various new and expired instant films.

I’ve always been attracted to the tacky, the absurd and the ironic. I’ve been shooting film for over a decade and it has consistently been the only activity that truly interests me. My current work is an attempt to encapsulate the humor and eccentricity that make life worth living in a beautiful, yet frustrating world full of rich assholes and desperate people.

I graduated from University of California Santa Cruz a while ago, used to host an all female radio show in SOMA, and sometimes contribute writing and interviews to San Francisco Arts Quarterly Magazine.” nikki-was-here.com/


Andrea Heimer: Painter

“Andrea Joyce Heimer (b. 1981) is a self taught painter who currently lives in Washington state, where she trains jumping horses in the summer. Heimer’s paintings document the neighborhood mythos of her childhood home in 1980′s Great Falls, Montana. Adopted as an infant and plagued by lifelong clinical depression, Heimer struggled early-on with feeling disconnected from her family and community. She began to battle her loneliness by means of observation, and became an all-seeing, all-listening, all-recording witness to the people and events that defined the history of her small piece of suburbia. Heimer was fascinated by the dramas she became privy to–the mundane mixed with supernatural, the violence and the kink–nearly Shakespearean in their breadth. Now residing far from her Montana roots, Heimer pays homage to the sagas whose presence made her complicated youth more bearable — and also offers a tip of her hat to the strange histories unfolding in suburban neighborhoods everywhere, in hopes each area finds its own witnesses to record the stories that may otherwise be lost forever.

Heimer’s paintings live in private collections in the US and abroad, including the collection of musician Paul Simon. Heimer was recently one of three finalists for the Seattle’s prestigious Neddy Award in the painting category.” – andrea-joyce.com/

We could not have asked for a better evening with friends, family and supporters. The Adiós Event for Idrawalot as a Gallery and Showroom space was incredible. Packed house all night, bar being sold out by 10:30… you people drink to much – but I love you anyways. We had incredible artworks for the Silent Auction Exhibition. Works from Cyril Rylsee, Adrian Buendia, JUST, Bera White, Andrea Wan, Addison Karl, Katrin Hagen, Daniela Roessler, Johannes Mundinger, Cyrus Smith, Ryan Dooley, Klone, Noa Ginzburg,Nichole Rathburn and all the other artist. Big-Ups to everyone for bidding. Winners will be contact in the next few days after some R&R.

Huge Props to Pete Corrie for making amazing tattoos for folks that wanted to get something to remember for a life time.

For those new faces that made your way in before the changing of the guard – better late then never. We were thrilled to have you in for at least one look.

Klone and Billy made an incredible mural – filled with all sorts of curiosities and wonder.

From the bottom of our hearts – Adrian and I would like to thank all of you for your support, kind words and love over the last two years. We are looking forward to the next progression of Idrawalot and the community within.

It has been nearly 2 years since I last did a paste-up. This little girl is Ciara – currently a high school student in Seattle and lucky enough to have a teacher like Jennifer Weitmann. Jennifer started a project 2 years ago to inspire and have her English students write an essay how they will “leave your mark.” In addition to their essay, one student is selected for a collaboration project that I’m lucky enough to be a part of. Taking their words and their ideas a step further in an public environment to keep inspiring. With teachers that think outside their lesson plans, the world needs more people like Jennifer Weitmann, her students and Ciara.
