Metal Pig - An Art Show:


My name is Zarathustra “Z” James. I am putting the show together featuring such invited artists as: Buff Monster, Shepard Fairey, Chris Chillemi, MCA, Klutch, Colby Woodland, DAIM, Organs, Slerm, Elik, Raul Cordero aka Duro Cia, Arrrgh!, Steven Daily, Lunar YCP, George Rosa “5003”, ESM-Artificial, C100, Sickboy, Thomas Murphy, Ed Templeton, Jester, Nicholas Ganz, Ecka One, Craig Metzger, John Champion, Dave Warnke, PARSKID, Prism, Jerry Lang, Dr. Blade, Reuben Raffael, Ryan Robidoux / Evoker, Ashley Montague, Christian Azul and GONZO247, Abe Lincoln Jr., Eric Orr, Magmo, Mad One, Michael Andrews, Arabella Proffer- Vendetta, Mike Gallegos, Angryblue, Jacob Schimmel, SAK, Asbestos, Josh Geldzahler, Sloke, Andy Howell, Keren Richter, Mr. Meaner, The Stevens Group, Ivaylo, Ferris Plock, Brian Gilbert, Jon Burgerman, Tim Hall, Frost, Mainframe, Ian Hanna / Nuflo, Os Gemeos, PECE, Alvin Eeckels, Tofer, James Portaccio, Mr. Hurt, Ed Hurdles, Max Lust, Derek Fridman, Heather Alexander, The Guys from California, Give Em Hell, and YOU!


This is an open call for worldwide artist participation. I’m creating a platform to showcase the works of the best urban artists currently existing. Going with the idea of Random von Nothaus of Buff Monster that themed shows are starting to feel played out, we have only named it “Metal Pig”. The rest is up to you to interpret. There is purposely no guideline or recommended medium. Hopefully this will create some interesting diversity.


The show is set to coincide with the South by Southwest Festival March 17 - 21, 2005

Opening: Thursday March 17th at 6:00pm

*Smaller sized pieces would be best as the space is not huge.
The main goal is fun! We will have Underground Hip-Hop, Old School Punk and of course Metal spinning and beer! We still need DJ’s to sign up for slots. I’m trying to get my personal heroes to be part of the show.
