Ravi Zupa

Ravi Zupa is one of my favorite artists and had his first Los Angeles showing at my gallery, Subliminal Projects, featuring his mind-blowing paintings. Ravi’s command of a broad range of techniques and aesthetics sets him apart from most artists. His next solo show at Black Book Gallery in Denver, features his firearm sculptures made from reclaimed vintage typewriters and other salvaged materials. Ravi is a true craftsman and like his other works, his pieces need to be viewed in person to appreciate their subtleties and composition. Check out the opening of his show “The Calm”, you won’t regret it! – Shepard

Take Action NOW For Leonard Peltier!

I have worked with a few Native American rights and advocacy groups over the years in an effort to combat, and raise awareness about, the pervasive injustice Native Americans have experienced historically. I have also learned about the miscarriage of justice in the Leonard Peltier case. Peltier, a member of the American Indian Movement, was accused and convicted of killing two FBI agents during a shoot out on the Pine Ridge reservation in 1975 even though no witnesses identified him as the shooter and ballistics were inconclusive. I created this poster for a documentary about Leonard Peltier’s case called WIND CHASES THE SUN with proceeds helping the defense committee for Leonard Peltier. Please watch this new video and help take action for Leonard Peltier who has been in prison for forty years despite calls for clemency from all around the world. Contact President Obama and request clemency for Leonard Peltier, share this video, donate money, help spread the world! Thank you for charing!  – Shepard

Dissobey print release!

I have been a fan of Slick’s graffiti and graphic design since the early 90’s. I was following graffiti of course, where Slick’s street work was legendary, but I also followed the emergence of streetwear brands like X-Large, Third Rail, and Fuct, all of whom Slick did great tee graphics with. I was impressed with Slick’s artistic versatility and his choices of references and subversive twists in his graphics. I finally met Slick about 12 or 13 years ago at an art show at our gallery. He was cool to my face and then did a big drippy tag in our elevator. I didn’t really care except that our landlord said our art shows were attracting “the wrong element” and warned us to keep things clean. After that, Slick and I bumped into each other pretty regularly and at some point he told me he was doing a Buckwheat “OTAY” parody of OBEY. I was flattered and I enjoyed seeing some of the prints around LA. When Slick and I talked about doing an “official” collaboration, we liked the idea of an homage to creative competition and transgression. You either learn to love the chaos of the streets or you don’t last in that realm. Slick and I battled over a prominently located electrical box near MOCA in 2011 and that is what inspired the look of the poster we made. Slick did a great job capturing the look of layers of posters and the printer Black Sunshine translated the image beautifully. Thanks for love, hate, and art Slick!
