templeofart

A documentary film two years in the making, providing an insightful look into the lives and inspiration of over fifty prolific artists’

Temple of Art is an ongoing 2 year art and photography project, a unique conversation between over 50 artists that include original work incorporating multiple modalities and disciplines. The show currently has a book being published by Baby Tattoo, a gallery opening at La Luz de Jesus, a prime time panel at Comic Con 2014 and a feature length documentary produced by Allan Amato (commercial photographer, Justified, Wilfred, Necessary Roughness) and executive produced by Jon Schnepp (Director: Metalocalypse, Venture Bros) Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls, TED The Art of Asking) and Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Coraline)

Since early 2012 Allan Amato has been photographing fine artists and inviting them to interpret those portraits through their particular medium. An artist’s work can act as both bridge and barrier; at once deeply personal and highly distorted; the lens through which they present their perception of the world, and the world that in turn interprets them.
By merging the objectivity of portrait photography with the subjectivity of drawing, painting, and sculpture, the artist is contextualized within the constructed reality of their own work.
The TEMPLE OF ART show provides an insightful look into the lives of working artists by following the progress of the collaborations from conception to completion, alongside interviews with the artists themselves.
Rarely are we given an opportunity to confront our perceptions of reality and self; this show illuminates the universal tension between the pursuit of our vision and the demands of a critical world.

The Artists
Dave Mckean (Mirror Mask, Sandman)
Barron Storey (Sandman:Endless Nights, Marat-Sade Journals)
Kent Williams(Kent Williams:Ophthalm, The Fountain)
Jason Shawn Alexander (Abe Sapien, Batman-End Game)
David Mack (Kabuki, Daredevil)
Bill Sienkiewicz (Electra Assassin, The New Mutants)
Grant Morrison (Batman:Arkham Asylum, The Filth, Happy)

A coming of age story of a Thai American teen, finding acceptance and empowerment cosplaying as her favorite superhero.

Fed up with her mother calling her a fat and stupid Water Buffalo, Ann runs away from home to join the circus, or more likely, to hang out at the local fantasy con. There she encounters monsters, superheroes, warriors and ninjas in preparation for the battle against her arch nemesis.

Who is Wonder Buffalo?

Wonder Buffalo is me. She’s you. She’s anyone who ever got looked down upon, anyone who got bullied or mistreated just for being different, or as we prefer to call it, unique. She is the epitome of the misunderstood, mistreated and unappreciated. And she will never let any of these keep her down. She is a work in progress. Always growing, learning, becoming better, stronger, tougher. What’s her superpower? Tenacity.

Wonder Buffalo to us is a way to show and tell everyone that you are great, that you are awesome just the way you are. Find the superhero inside of you and stand up for yourself against any oppression.

Berg on Berg 

wonderbuffalo
Berg on Berg is the brainchild of Christine T. BERG and Simon ShterenBERG, see what we did there? Two unique individuals with artistic sensibility and big dreams striving to put their offbeat sense of humor and individuality into every artistic endeavour they set their mind to. Most of the time you will find them throwing off ideas or punches and coming up with kickass stories, especially those that deal with diversity and empowerment.
