Peruvian-Canadian artist and inspired visionary, Chris Dyer, comes to Northern California for the
opening night of his Solo Exhibition, ‘Moment of Truth’ at Tribe 13 Gallery in Ukiah, CA.

On August 4th, 2011, Tribe 13 Art Collective will be celebrating the Opening Night of Moment of Truth, a Solo
Exhibition featuring the Positive Creations of visionary artist, Chris Dyer. The show will take place at the Tribe 13
Gallery, located at 221 N. State St. Ukiah, CA, and hang from August 5th – 26th. It features a massive collection
of his original artwork, created over the course of his life-long journey as an artist, and stemming from what
seems like many lifetimes of experience. While being a renowned member of the global Visionary Art community,
this show marks the first time he will be exhibiting on the United States West Coast and that such a large volume
of his work will be shown together at one time.

Dyer’s art depicts a supremely unique flavor of consciousness-expanding imagery and illustrative symbolism,
drawing upon his experiences travelling the world and calling to mind the common ground between seemingly
distant cultures. As a long-time environmental activist and outspoken instigator of change, his life – like his art – is
characteristic of someone who cares deeply and believes passionately that each one of us has within us the
capacity impact the future of our world. While presenting a diverse and dynamic perspective of reality through his
art, wherein many truths can be found, one stands out from the rest: the principle idea that we are all connected,
not only to each other, but to everything around us and to all moments of the past, present and future.


The Opening Night festivities will take place from 8pm – 2am and include performances by electronic music
producers Dov, Lotus Drops and the local Mendocino County favorite, Energy Alchemist, as well as projected
visual art by master light-bender, Johnathan Singer, most well known for his collaborative work with Alex Grey. In
addition to gracing the walls of the gallery with traditional paintings, Chris Dyer will be honoring his roots in
skateboarding culture, showcasing his nearly obsessive collection of painted skateboards, a ‘Skate-Robot’
created specifically for this exhibition using broken boards gathered up by local community skaters, and two
quarter-pipe installations decked out with his custom designs. He continues to maintain a strong presence in the
skate-world through his alliances with Creation Skateboards and the Satori Movement, two brands that utilize his
artwork to express a more positive side to life.

Beyond opening night, Tribe 13 has also invited Dyer to screen his recently released documentary film on
Tuesday August 9th. The film, entitled Positive Creations, follows him throughout his life, from his early days as a
rowdy Peruvian trouble-maker, through his world-travels as a backpacking wisdom-seeker, to his current home in
Montreal where he and his wife wrestle with the reality of passionate artists in our society. Here they contemplate
the meaning of ‘oneness’ in hopes of coherently depicting their visions to better the world as a whole.
