Introducing Patrick Rulh, aka @dirty_funq

 

Introducing New Orleans based artist Patrick Rulh (aka @dirty_funq)
Patrick, 26, is an artist based in New Orleans. He came across Portculture from seeing posts on Instagram from artists floating around our society.

“I love this program”

“This gathering has increased the exposure of my art to a wider audience also allowing me to network effectively with a lot of fellow creatives in the city”

“It’s created an environment for me that helps provide a sense of belonging. Everyone I’ve met through Portculture so far has been incredibly genuine and supportive. There’s a lot of love here inspiring me to keep creating”

“I’m greatly influenced by the energy and aesthetics of my surroundings; the small nuances and details in things. Also seeing people create dope things plays a huge role in inspiring me to create. Whether it’s someone crushing a mural or watching somebody do a sick line in a skate video- seeing people push themselves to the limits makes me push harder to improve. All in all having the ability to create is essential to balancing my equilibrium and sense of self fulfillment”

We asked Patrick where does he see himself in the next year pursuing art here his reply was,

“I see myself continuing to network and improve my skills and vision as a creative. I’d like to display my artwork at a variety of venues across the city and also delve into video work a bit more.”

What do you love about New Orleans?

“I love New Orleans for its vibrant energy. Once you spend a substantial amount of time here, everywhere else seems boring. Nowhere else looks or feels like New Orleans.”

We definitely also had to find out what is your favorite Urban South Beer? Holy Roller 🍻

Find @dirty_funq and a collection of other brilliant artists this Saturday here at Urban South- 5 to 9PM we will be presenting a fresh wave of creativity.

Saturday, March 24th 2018 – Our Third Edition Artisans Show & Market

Located along the Mississippi River in New Orleans, Louisiana rests a dedicated society of crafts makers. Throughout the week beer masters get to work daily brewing up some of the finest beer being served up along the Gulf-Coast. It’s when once a month that other emerging talented crafts makers of the arts assemble along side these beer gods under one roof.

When this happens a portal opens up at Urban South Brewery, and we become the gatekeepers. Welcome to Portculture.

We are a society of artists and musicians helping build artistic value by showcasing some of the most talented New Orleans based artists and creators who find themselves inevitably mixed into our network. The greatest gift to the world we could possibly give is creating opportunity for the hard working artist. Portculture began by supporting the dedicated¬† artist and it’s always carried this mission. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Portculture is a collection of talent. When you make your adventure to New Orleans, we hope you end up scheduling a day to visit the portal we are opening. The Portculture x Urban South art show weekends are turning out to become a majority of the public’s favorite Saturday to discover new artists. We are fulfilling our purpose and it really means a lot to the team and family behind this.

The next artisans show & market is taking place April 21st, 2018. This will be our fourth edition art show. This date is right between French Quarter Fest & Jazz Fest. We look forward to seeing the friends and family who are able to make it out. We imagine a ton of art collectors will be in town, so we hope this becomes a go-to during that time.

Portculture is the arts renaissance of the Gulf-Coast.

RSVP for a facebook reminder here, or email us for a personal reminder at rsvp@portculture.org

( p.s. here’s the video from our February 24th artisans show )

 

 

Thank you for making our second edition artisan show a success.

It’s truly a honor to have been able to gather again at Urban South Brewery for the arts. We worked the entire day in partnership with Urban South’s beer release and presented a fresh showcase of visual art, taxidermy, glass blowing, brands, painters, and more. Thank you so much for our patrons and philanthropists of the arts. This creative community is the life blood for a future generation that decided to build and foster a community by setting foundation where expression and passion rule.

Together we are the arts renaissance of the gulf-coast.

March 24th is the next art show and we’re expecting this line-up of creators to really leave you in awe. Please rsvp and set a reminder here, or via facebook.

Portculture is you. Portculture is us.

We lack words for how incredible the evening was for our grand opening art show and market. From a rooted artistic point of view, we consider what happened last night to be a forward step for arts culture and the society of philanthropy. We watched art being sold right off the walls. We witnessed collectors meet and greet new or familiar artists and take their work home with them. Urban South Brewery was brimming with creativity and culture. It was SUCH a honor to host with our family there.

We have so many people to thank. We already began calling our peers and thanking them for coming out, not even kidding we wanted to hug everyone in the room at the same time.

Thank you for helping us reach a new level. Last nigh was something FOR the artist, it’s our job together to move culture forward. Thank you for supporting the arts and helping keep us alive.

We hope you enjoy the photos captured from our journey.

Tropical Urban Street Magic (TUSM) #portculture

We’re bringing in another year of art and music celebration. We were inactive after spring of 2017 getting other projects rolling behind the scenes. We’re now able to sustain this vast of a vision more effectively with a few new platforms, so thank you again for the patience.

We have an art show on Saturday, January 13th. We’re inviting the public to join us at Urban South Brewery. 5PM. This project features a roster of gulf-coast’s rather loved creators in the tap room as a new artisan show & market. It’s real inclusive, just sign-up and share the posts, tag us, etc. No vendor fees is the wave for 2018.

Starting January we will also be releasing artist features on our Ello (the creator’s network) page. It will accumulate views as time goes on from the network that already explores the site. We encourage you to make the switch if you are over facebook content and would rather more of a relevant artistic news feed.

We’re curating a lot of special projects this year for the tricentennial. Sign up to get our emails.
