HYPEBEAST features a photo recap of art exhibit BEAST ASTRAY at Known Gallery

October 02 2014 . 07:47pm

Last week, we foreshadowed Joe Hahn’s latest creative endeavor, the full-length feature film MALL and its subsequent activations surrounding the movie’s debut. Amongst the most important complementary pieces to the movie starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Cameron Monaghan and Gina Gershon was the conceptualization of “BEAST ASTRAY,” a multi-artist show featuring several of Hahn’s closest friends and associates. Each artist was given the task of creating their own respective takes on the movie’s theme and storyline of five suburbanites linked together amidst a seemingly random mall shooting. Among the artists involved included Aaron De La Cruz, Dabs Myla, Edwin Ushiro, Estevan Oriol, Jasper Wong, James Jean, Mark Dean Veca, Mike Shinoda, REVOK, Ron English, Rostarr, Saber, Slick, STASH and more who filled the stark white walls of KNOWN GALLERY with the movie’s RX-7 taking center stage in the gallery. The show is open now until October 5.

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.

The exhibition featured over 40 trailblazers of the art world including Keith Haring, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Space Invader, Ryan McGinness, Camille Rose Garcia, Clare Rojas, Cleon Peterson, CYRCLE, D*FACE, Dana Louise Kirkpatrick, Deedee Cheriel, Dzine, Estevan Oriol, Evan Hecox, FAILE, Gary Panter, HAZE, James Cauty, Jamie Reid, Jen Stark, Lee Quinones, Mark Mothersbaugh, Monica Canilao, POSE, Ravi Zupa, RETNA, Revok, Stanley Donwood, Winston Smith, WK Interact, and more.

The show itself has a great lineage, connecting the dots from a the past two generations of artists who have, for lack of a better term, stood on the outside of typical and traditional art career expectations. One of the major highlights of the exhibition will be that a portion of the event proceeds will be donated to Chicago Arts Partnerships In Education (CAPE), an organization which inspires students to be passionate about their education by weaving visual and performing arts into their classroom lessons. They bring academic subjects to life through art, and partner teaching artists with Chicago Public School teachers to develop original, creative lesson plans.

Preview for Pose and Revok’s upcoming show Dubai

April 12 2014 . 10:05pm

 

For their Middle East debut, both artists produced entirely new bodies of work using processes they developed recently, more like an evolution of their existing work than a new direction. Along with large canvases,will introduce a new series of works on paper created by painting a full-scale mural then breaking down the pieces into individual works. Revok’s new creations are more mature, deliberate and reasoned, while staying fully abstract, geometrical, and almost brighter than before. The event will take place at The Mine in Dubai, on Thursday, April 24th from 8pm – midnight, and will be strictly invitation only.
