Nick Pagan is an artist of Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland, CA and in addition to drawing, painting, ceramics, and textiles he also makes cardboard “guitars” which he plays at art exhibitions and for short films that he makes.

Bärnacle, formed in Los Angeles in 2009, they found themselves playing their first Instru-Metal show in Osaka, Japan for their highly anticipated photograph, drawing, and fashion installation “Voices of Nature.”

Bärnacle is inspired by travel, art and their own fashion brands (Unholy Matrimony and KZO/Creative Growth for Everybody). They are continually    seeking    new    inspiration    from    sources    off    the    beaten    path.   Abiding by their tagline “We Don’t Do Music,” Bärnacle’s experimental sound takes you on a cinematic voyage to the cerebral.

Bärnacle is: Brett Westfall, Joel Knoernschild, Katie Malia and Josh Giroux.

Hope to see you on April 1st!
