Slice It Up

Some of my earliest inspiration in art and design comes from Punk and Post-Punk album art as well as the do-it-yourself ethos of the movements themselves.  I love that Punk was not about virtuosity, but ingenuity, creativity, attitude, and fearlessness. If you don’t like it, rip it up, or slice it up, and start over. Malcolm McLaren once told me “be prolific, not precious”… words to live by.

OBEY in Málaga

In November of 2013, The Obey crew traveled to Málaga, Spain where we painted a 7 story mural next to the Comtemporary Art Center. D*Face and his boys came through as well to paint the other 7 story wall on an adjacent tower of the building. After completion of the mural the crew was able to hit some street spots, soak up the sights and sticker desirable surfaces. Big thank you to Fer and his Dad, Fernando and everyone from The CAC Málaga and the to the people of Málaga.

OG in SEOUL

My friend BNE just sent me this great photo from Seoul! I’m glad to see that my concepts and mischief that many said were going nowhere have now made it to places even I would never have imagined! I’m grateful to have the opportunities to push my work forward.

SID SUPERMAN IS DEAD RECAP

Superman may be dead, but the punk spirit is quite alive! Friday night was intense. I was really proud of the art… the paintings, prints, photos, and installation that Dennis and I put together, but my greatest excitement was for the live show with Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Billy Idol of Generation X, Clem Burke of Blondie, and Leigh Gorman of Bow Wow Wow. The band is a supergroup of people who helped to shape the sounds of Punk and New Wave. Considering that these bands were all very important to me growing up, to have their members playing in our parking lot was surreal. I guess I was not the only one excited to see the band (and maybe the art), because about 2,000 people showed up, including music lovers like Flea, Moby, Gary Numan, Travis Barker, Steve Stevens, Linda Ramone, Fred Armisen, David Arquette, and others. We were also joined by the stickler fire marshall who was regulating the gallery and stage area capacity, meaning that many of our lovely guests were denied entry… Still, people watched the band perched on top of cars and walls and were dancing in the streets. I couldn’t have had a better time. Dennis Morris’s daughter Pearl warmed up the crowd with three of her own songs, and she sings beautifully! The main event was blistering energy with the band Ritchie Love (named in tribute to Sid’s real name: John Simon Ritchie) ripping through “I Wanna Be Your Dog”, “Somethin’ Else”, “Silly Thing”, “C’mon Everybody”, “Dancing With Myself”, “No Fun”, “My Way”, and “Waiting For The Man”. The band seemed to have a blast, and if the whole experience wasn’t seared in my brain thoroughly enough, Clem Burke signed me his drum sticks as a memento. Fortunately, Jon Furlong of Obey Clothing was there to capture all the action in photos… enjoy! Oh, and if you didn’t get to see the art, it is up until Jan. 11. The remaining Sid letterpress box sets will go for sale on OBEYGIANT.com Dec. 19, so if you are in LA and want to be sure to get a set, come by Subliminal Projects between now and then. Thanks for the support!
