Kaaboo Del Mar

Just got back from a whirlwind week in San Diego full of art, music, friends, family, surfing, drinkin' and dogs. I’m grateful to have been invited to show alongside good friends and some of the best in the game at Kaaboo (and of course the musical and comedic juggernauts up on the stages). Thanks to all the friendly folks who came by to see the art, acquired some work, or simply chatted me up and shared some stories. And, a massive thank you to Amanda Lynn for making this happen!

SWANS - Seattle Art Poster

I had the pleasure of creating art posters for the SWANS' upcoming August 25th show at The Neptune in Seattle for their farewell tourThis is a smaller edition of only 50. Signed and numbered 18"x24" 2-color silkscreen prints on French "FactoryGreen" 100# cover-weight paper.

First pass on the racks

A post shared by Daryll Peirce (@daryllpeirce) on

'Twas a fun weekend of silkscreening with my friend, artist Ryan McJunkin at Faultline Artspace in East Oakland. Sadly, it's been a while since this sore ol' desk jocky has hand-pulled some screens and my printing muscles have definitely atrophied. The plan on these also switched half way though, so the green color is the actual paper and all white is printed and cut from the edge. That's a first! These were also all trimmed out by hand (200 cuts instead of 4) due to my distrust of any last-minute Sunday night service that a Kinkos or Staples-like place is bound to f**k up. Worked harder, not smarter for sure, but very pleased with the outcome!

VoilĂ !
These will be available for purchase at the August 25th Seattle show at The Neptune. Afterward, they will be released on my store HERE on the following day of 8/26.

The original art for the posters, "Still Sinking" is available here.

Melvins - Casbah Art Poster

The Melvins glow in the dark concert poster by Daryll Peirce

I'm super excited to unveil these glow-in-the-dark Melvins posters! They're kicking off an extensive tour in support of their new double album, A Walk with Love and Death. The tour kicks off July 5th at The Casbah in San Diego and I was lucky enough to create this weighted cerebral mass to submerge and entice thy ocular senses.

Welling Court 2017

Welling Court Mural Project Daryll Peirce painting
I had the pleasure of joining my AdHoc Art friends and art compadres for the annual Welling Court Mural Project in Astoria, Queens, NYC. I enjoyed painting for the first one back in 2010 and finally got back there to join in on another round 7 years later!

It was a blast painting in the New York summer heat, welcoming the cool breezes coming off the East River with the Manhattan skyline at my back, neighborhood block party, skating, and reconnecting with friends and family I don't get to see very often these days.

All the previous murals get painted over each year so unfortunately I had to paint over this Elephant piece by Mike Makatron and Dirt Worship.

I swear I didn't sketch these to look like the figures were into some hot elephant sexy time.

TONDO - Spoke Art Gallery, SF - May 6

Infinite Instability by Daryll Peirce
Infinite Instability
This piece took me on quite a journey and I am looking forward to debuting it in the round amongst a humbling sea of 49 other circular works. Hope you can join us this Saturday for TONDO at Spoke Art, SF.

SPOKE SF is pleased to present TONDO, a dynamic group exhibition featuring over 50 artists working in the round. We challenged some of our favorite artists to work on a round surface and left the rest up to them. The result is a stunning display of the endless possibilities contained within a circle.

Tondo has historically referred to a round painting or low relief derived from the Italian rotondo or round. Simultaneously working within the bounds of the circular form while coloring outside the lines only as artists can, each piece plays with the definition of tondo. Using neon, painting, cut paper, embroidery and more each artist has taken the challenge of an unconventional format to give new dimension to their work.

Participating Artists:
Peter Adamyan | Bagger43 | Jonathan Bergeron | Robert Bowen | Brandon Boyd | Stephanie Brown | Bumblebee | Adam Caldwell | Sandi Calistro | John Casey | Peter Chan | Damian Chavez | Nomi Chi | Dan Christofferson | Charles Clary | Cannon Dill | Dulk | Jason Edmiston | Jayde Fish | Jeremy Fish | Greg Gandy | Sergio Garcia | Frank Gonzales | Greg Gossel | Serge Gay Jr. | Happy D | Evan B Harris | Brandon Holt | Christine Hostetler | Zoe Keller | Caia Koopman | Alex Louisa | Cathy Lu | Ryan Malley | Jen Mann | Jeremy Mann | Caitlin McCormack | Meggs | Jose Mertz | Nadezda | Joanne Nam | Reuben Negron | Nicomi Nix Turner | Chelsea O'Byrne | Meryl Pataky | Daryll Peirce | Relm | Matt Ritchie | Jessica So Ren Tang | Amy Sol | Kevin Earl Taylor | Henrik Uldalen | Roos Vandervliet | Wiley Wallace | Helice Wen | Alex Yanes | Lauren YS | Kate Zambrano

Opening Saturday, May 6th from 6pm-9pm.
The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, May 27th.
