PostHeaderIcon Art Matters: Falcon Flies High In NoPo With Isaac Brock


TOUR DU JOUR: The Falcon Art Community, located in a basement off of North Albina, opened its doors to the public on Wednesday night. It was an opportunity to see where some of Portland's best artists hole up in to do their amazing work. It was also a rare chance to view art by Falcon artists, enjoy entertainment by Falcon musicians, and learn more about the Falcon and the work created here (I even got a tour of the secretive "Ghost Bar"...omg).

The night provided another opportunity: to see one of the music's worlds biggest stars in what could be considered an interesting outfit.

When I stepped into the studio space of painter Alexander Rokoff, who has painted epic portraits of everyone from Storm Large to Tahoe Jackson I noticed he was working on another large scale work. That's when I found out that Rockoff is currently working on a very large scale portrait of Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock...in lederhosen. You can catch a glimpse of it in the photo of Rokoff above.
