Napa, California based artist Porous Walker will open his latest exhibition next week titled “Haricots Magiques”. His fun and easy to understand illustrative style can be seen throughout the preview images. Shunning traditional methods of pre-show press, the artist writes an open letter seen below. The Porous Walker “Haricots Magique: The Final Attempt” Exhibition will open on Friday, June 4th at 7:30 pm with the FIFTY24SF Gallery in San Francisco playing host.
I’m honestly a bigger fan of art than I am an actual artist. I’ve tried to stop drawing, sculpting, arting but I can’t seem to stop. I’m addicted to that feeling of seeing amazing artwork, ideas and feeling the energy and spirit that created them and than allowing myself to let go and just make what I want.
I really try to work hard on my drawings, and I hope to live long enough to get to a point where I make something visually pleasing as well as purely concept driven.
I’m also looking for a job.
I live in Napa. I’m 35 years old. I want you and me both to laugh more than we don’t and above all I want to inspire people to share what’s in their minds.

Please come to my art show on June 4, 2010.
I am making some new artwork for the show, as well as creating a couple redux versions of some of my sculptures I made in the early 2000’s.
I hope to have some free gifts for everyone that stops by the art show opening. I have also invited a few friends of mine to join me to share some of their artworks as well. Among those confirmed as of now:
Kristin Farr & Aaron Hodges
And probably a few more surprises.
Also, I have invited my good friends, ‘Snugglemachine’ to play some live music and compliment people who come to the show.
All the best,
