This Thursday the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk will be showing a work in progress film about Calder Greenwood and his art practice directed by Matthew Kaundart and produced Luka Fisher at the Regent Theater as part of the first annual Art Walk Film Festival. Screenings start at 6pm at That eRegent Theater, 448 South Main St., Los Angeles CA 90013. Calder Greenwood will also be building a special installation for the event.

“The Cardboard Artist” is a short documentary about Calder Greenwood, an LA-based street artist who creates elaborate cardboard and paper mache installations throughout the city. Through exploring ephemeral art and coming to know one of its creators, this film reveals how there’s great beauty in realizing some things must come to an end.

After the screening make sure to stop by at These Days Gallery (118 Winston St. 2nd FL Los Angeles, CA 90013) where they will be unveiling a unique art show focusing on Wild Life’s works, one of Calder’s intimate collaborators.

WILD LIFE

Days will screen a series of videos created from Wild Life’s street art installations.The images, poetically time lapsed from start to finish, give the viewer a rare glimpse of the process of urban (and often-illegal) street art installs.

CALDER GREENWOOD

Calder Greenwood is a frequent collaborator with Wild Life on large-scale, three-dimensional, papier-mâché street art installs. Greenwood devises his own elaborate set designs inspired by vintage action and sci-fi films. Greenwood, whose work space is located on the first floor at 118 Winston – the same building as These Days – will have his private studio open during Art Walk for public viewing, where attendees can see where and how he creates his fantastical work.
