monkeysalon's Profile

About

monkey salon was founded by artist, music producer, and curator, toon botwin. along with jason gamm - founder of (stairwell_cinema) - we are dedicated to offering beautiful funky groovy art wares - original pieces, digital reproductions, art objects etc - at affordable prices and distinctly without the pressure of a gallery purchase. art is for all. and art is, we believe, capable of capturing someone's attention... not just for its beauty or eye candy appeal or even decorating your surroundings. but also to draw attention to activism through its universal appeal. seems there are two universal forms of communication: art and music. a beautiful and uplifting combination. we might not be able to change the world, but we are dedicated to showing and featuring works, wares, and objects from up and coming artists, artists who are still relatively unknown (but should not be), and artists who have, mostly on their own, established a loyal…

please feel free to get in touch with us - which you can do so through etsy. or, by email: toon [!at] monkeysalon.com -OR- jasongamm [!at] gmail.com. we look forward to hearing from you.

we very much appreciate your interest and support and for taking time out of the business of life to explore not only wonderful art, but also to spread the good word about monkey salon's art benefit project called life below the clouds.

if this project interests you, please help us out by spreading the good word that is monkey salon and life below the clouds. post a flash on your blog, website, or even send a friendly email outlining what our project is all about.

we are currently planning future events, such as private art show benefit (sans gallery, although we would like to do that too). on that note, we are developing relationships with other etsy artists who design groovy buttons and stickers and whatnot. if you feel you have something to offer and/or collaborate on, again, drop us the word.
