Sunday Southern Art Revival is a collective of five artists; Jesse Cregar, George Long, Michi Meko, Mario Schambon, John Tindel.

SSAR is a collaborative artist group that’s process of creating is somewhere between a quilting bee and professional arm wrestling. Formed in 2007, the five southern gentleman of SSAR have an ongoing visual banter that has reared five solo exhibitions of paintings, drawings, sculpture, and an offshoot band called “HOT FAT”. The group is dedicated to invigorating each other, the process, and the work. In turn, invigorating the dialogue with the audience. Each member brings their own history and knowledge to the group. Our combined experience in creating artworks for a wide range of venues, including many variety of permanent and temporary public works, with a combined total of 100 years of experience in the field.

Shows/Exhibits: July 2010


Wanted to post some images and videos of some of the art events my work and myself attended in the last week.

First off it was the Lunchbox Show at Alcove Gallery.  70 artists and a bunch of lunchboxes... SOLD the one I did, but will take commissions if anyone is interested. Only $100.

Next up was the slightly controversial "New Pan-African" exhibit at Archetype Gallery.  Exhibit runs through the month, so check it out.

We ended the weekend with a Classic Atlanta Style Art show.  Bunch of us (Urban Medium, Michi, Zach Wolfe, Sam Parker, Dax, Emer and Nathan Bolster) put together SCALE at Studio 900.  Large scale pieces and a good time.

TINDEL vs MICHI: The Election

November 2008
Art Department Gallery
Atlanta, Ga

About the Exhibit

The show was an election.  Votes were cast and decisions were made.  One of the freshest exhibits in Atlanta's history crowned a Cring of the South.  Viewers were inside of an exhibit, the postcards for the exhibit were ballots that you tore in half and voted on your favorite artist.  In the back, TINEL & Michi were painting on a huge pice of wood while viewers dropped notes to the artist and they incorporated everything into the work. Watch video to see who it was. New South Movement historical footage.
