Art. Music. Words.

Now accepting commissions!

Been working on a handful of new paintings, both personal work and commissions for others.  Stay tuned to the gallery for new examples as we’ll be updating regularly over the next several weeks.


If you’re interested in having a new painting of your choosing, I’m currently accepting commissions on a variety of subjects.  At the moment, I’m primarily focused on action-portraiture (people working in their environment) and landscapes, but I’m open to whatever you’re looking for.  Take a look at some of my work in the painting gallery and see for yourself.  If you have questions, feel free to email dave@daveklemencic.com for further details, quotes and to set up an appointment to look at some samples firsthand.

EQ Produktions Article in RVA Mag

RVA Magazine, Richmond’s premier underground culture and music mag has posted a great write-up on EQ Produktions, a local music promoting business founded by Jesse Pruitt and Mike Holderfield, friends that have worked closely with the local music scene over the last few years. They’ve broken out over the last year or so, expanding their reach and presence in the area, all the while bringing attention to an excellent and diverse group of musicians. Last winter (December and March) I added my live drawing projections to several of their shows (Existor and Pretty Lights, Orchard Lounge) and received a mention in the article as well as several shots of my work at their shows.
Take a look!

Orchard Lounge @ Canal Club

On Friday, January 23, 2009 I set up to create live drawing projections at the Canal Club for the Orchard Lounge show. Orchard Lounge is a Chicago-based DJ collective, and the show proved to be a lot of fun for a crowd of over 600. I’ve included all the images that I drew over the course of the 3 1/2 hour set in the live drawing section of the site. Have a look! orchard-lounge-dave-klemencic2

Art Opening @ ALB Tech on February 6

Stay tuned for more info, but we’ve scheduled an art opening in the Gallery @ ALB Tech for the first Friday of February. The show will run all month, but the opening on the 6th will feature live music by the Former Champions, live drawing projections, tons of new artwork, complimentary cups of Diet Rite and those mixed peanuts they have at other fancy receptions. Located next to VCU campus at 1208 W. Main, ALB has been the hot spot for art, music and technology over the last year.


Owned and operated by Adam Bell, ALB is host to a variety of enterprises including the gallery space featuring cutting edge artwork, a live music space that’s featured great musicians from all over the region including Southside Funk, Aquabatics, Itation, KBH Trio (featuring Bell and Huppmann) and the 29th Division. The Tech side offers web design, computer sales and repairs, and has gone to great lengths to bring many artists, musicians and businesses in general into the 21st Century.

The show itself will feature original paintings new and old, traditional screen prints and lithographs, digital prints of both the paintings and live drawings from projections. Opening to coincide with the kick-off of the new website, it’s shaping up to be the premier art and culture event in Richmond for the month of February.

LarJarFest 2008

LarJar Fest 08 Highlights

On October 4, 2008, 5 bands, DJs and 100 or so of our closest friends gathered at the Jarrell Ranch outside Richmond for the second annual LarJarFest. The music ran from 4:00 in the afternoon till 5:30 in the morning, with camping, bonfires and lots of good times. Richmond Engine #3, Silo Effect, the Former Champions, 11th House and the 29th Division performed, along with the DJ Gumby Crewe. The video includes the Champs, 11th House and 29DIV, along with some great clips of the hoopers and fire twirlers lighting up the night.

The video was shot and edited by Jason Werner of Accolade Music Productions and Richmond Engine #3. Big thanks!
