In conjunction with the exhibition Starting with Blade..., LA-based Sumi Ink Club will organize a multi-city simultaneous drawing event open to the
public at Triple Base in San Francisco, SiteLA in Los Angeles, Little
Cakes in New York, Shoboshobo in Paris and more international venues.
Sumi Ink Club is a Los Angeles-based drawing collective founded in
2005 by Sarah Anderson and Luke Fischbeck. The group meets regularly to
execute topsy-turvy, detailed, collaborative drawings using ink on
paper. In each of its permutations, Sumi Ink Club uses group drawing as
a means to open and fortify social interactions that bleed into
everyday life. Sumi Ink Club is non-hierarchical: all ages, all humans,
Other collaborations featuring Sarah Anderson and Luke Fischbeck include the band, Lucky Dragons, and the small publishing house, Glaciers of Nice.
