US VERSUS THEM – OIL & WATER | November 12th, 2011

November 05 2011 . 05:17pm

in conjunction with
Known Gallery, City Fog Surf, Biltwell, Chop Cult, Lowbrow Customs and Dice Magazine

A group show of new works and art.

441 North Fairfax Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90036

Public opening:
November 12th, 2011 | 8-11pm

Traditionally oil and water do not mix. The surf, hot rod and motorcycle cultures that grew out of Southern California from the 50’s -70’s however, were all connected by the idea of personal freedom and expression- not conforming to the standards of the societies they existed in.  For this show we are bringing together dozens of artists and craftsmen from these respective backgrounds and beyond- from legends to rookies.  Each artist will be provided with a particular canvas: a blank board from City Fog Surfboards, helmets from Biltwell, gas tanks from Lowbrow Customs among other items.

To kick off the event a run is being organized for that day that will end at the gallery on Fairfax.  On hand there will be a live performance by ex-TSOL singer Joe Woods, as well as live installations and pinstriping.

To coincide with the show, Us Versus Them will be creating a pop up shop that will occupy the back room at Known Gallery. In addition to UVT Fall product and accessories, exclusive artist prints and tees based around some of the pieces included in the show will be for sale. PBR is providing beverages, and UVT will also be creating a custom ale brewed specifically for the event.

Danny D from Wanted Wear gets down pinstriping on The Seventh Letter bike built by Chopperville Custom Cyles

January 30 2007 . 07:00am

Some of you might recognize Danny D and his work from one of the many Lifestyles cars he’s done, or maybe from one of the Super Co bikes he’s done, or maybe you remember his artworks from the Nike Blu-house when Mr. Cartoon and Estevan Oriol had their release party. Yes, Danny D has done it all for many, many years, and like most of us he comes from a graffiti background. Danny D just launched his new clothing company WANTED WEAR, so be on the look out for it.  Also in the house tonite was legendary pinstriper BUGS from Arizona, Gary Jenson  and their crew. The bike and paint is done by none other than Scott Craig of Chopperville Customs Cycles.
