“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.
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 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.
