Recap Photos of Cruel Summer at Jonathan Levine Gallery curated by Roger Gastman

August 22 2014 . 08:48pm

Summer is the season where new art gets discovered as many group shows pop up when most of the art industry goes on vacation before things pick up again in September. Jonathan LeVine Gallery worked with renowned curator Roger Gastman to bring together a bold grouping of graffiti & urban artists both old and new. Entitled Cruel Summer, this great exhibition showcased a new level of work from each artist. There was some familiar imagery, but the work comes off fresh to attendees who were clamoring for something new for their senses. Gastman has been working in the scene for decades and it showed as it seemed like every writer & artist in town was in attendance.

The large scale show was held at both gallery locations, which were needed for the battalion of fine artists involved including Ben Venom, Blade, Caleb Neelon, Cleon Peterson, Cope2, Dabs Myla, Eric Haze, Finok, Freedom, Horfe, HuskMitNavn, Mark Bode, Maya Hayuk, Mike Ballard (Cept), Mike Giant, Niagara, Pose, Revok, Rime, Risk, Sam Friedman, Shepard Fairey, Tim Conlon and Victor Reyes.

CLOUT MAGAZINE 11 & TODD BRATRUD T- SHIRT SNEAK PREVIEW

February 07 2009 . 05:46pm

Read more for the full editorial and a sneak peak of the Todd Bratrud limited edition Clout Magazine 11 T shirt that will be released with the new issue…

What’s my favorite word? BITCH! Last issue, the theme among all those we interviewed was versatility. This issue’s common denominator is longevity. You might even call the interviewees in this eleventh issue legends. First up is Bay Area rap pioneer and the godfather of pimp rap, Too $hort. Crafting his art since the age of 14, Too $hort has been around for more than twenty years and still remains to be relevant today. Building a solid foundation in the Bay Area rap scene beginning in his early teen years, San Quinn continues to be a mainstay and positive force for the younger generation. For almost thirty years, Cope 2 has been getting up in the streets on a consistent basis and now has made a professional career out of his art. He talks to Clout about his beginnings as a writer and gives us some words on his inspirations, crews, beef and the state of graffiti today. On the cover, you’ll find a pin-up lizard girl unmistakably illustrated by the legendary skateboard artist Todd Bratrud. You wouldn’t know it from reading his interview but he’s been drawing and skateboarding for two decades and has contributed countless graphics to the scene. Graffiti writer GESO made his way onto the scene 16 years ago and has one of the most unique styles. Following the road less traveled, GESO’s got a style and attitude all his own.You’ll also find a Q&A with the creator of innovative brand Two In The Shirt, Marek Grubel, who is bringing tastefully provocative graphics on tees season after season. And as always, a solid selection of great photos of walls, freights and city streets from coast to coast as well as product and fashion features. – CULT OF BEAUTY
