I have teamed with two of my favorite artists to make some limited edition wallets for Dayler. Each wallet is signed and numbered by the artist and the edition size for each design is 40. So, once these 40 are gone they are gone forever. Both of these artists are quite productive and have been showing their work in galleries for a few years and things are not slowing down. It’s only a matter of time before these wallets become collectors items.
“Window Panes” by Aaron Kraten
About the artists:
Aaron Kraten: This is our first collaboration with Aaron and we already have another wallet design in the works that will be released within the next couple of months. Kraten was born in 1974 in San Francisco, California. He moved out of the city to Huntington Beach in Southern California while he was young. Kraten is interested in street graffiti and skateboarding. He worked full-time jobs while establishing himself as an artist, taking jobs in factories and working a stint as a courier. He gained recognition in the 2000s, and subsequently set up a factory-like studio in a Costa Mesa loft on the East side.
Aaron is currently showing at Wax Poetic Gallery in Burbank CA.

Kendra Binney: In 2007 Dayler released three limited edition wallets with Kendra which have all sold out. This time around we have increased the edition size from 20 to 40. Kendra Binney was raised in a small mountain town with no shoe stores. Most of her time was spent barefoot treading through the miniscule world of spiders, snakes and all things hiding in the grass. She transfers this closeness with the small and obscure into her paintings. Through scenes of dripping landscapes and insecure, vulnerable characters, she illustrates a world draped in memories, remorse, and fragile realities. Seen through pastel washes and shiny candy coatings of resins, her works evoke both nostalgia and contempt. They are at once gentle and cruel, sweet and unsettling.
Kendra currently lives in Portland Oregon. She spends her days all alone in a small studio with no windows. Here she paints, daydreams, and paints some more.
Kendra is currently showing at Richard Goodall Gallery in Manchester UK. She also has several shows lined up for 2008 throughout the U.S.
