THE PROVOCATEURS UPDATE FROM CHICAGO

The crew and I arrived in Chicago three days ago to begin the setup for The Provocateurs art show and to start painting my mural. My mural wall is a killer spot at Wabash and 9th on one of Columbia College’s buildings. There will be several other murals going up in the same corridor by artists from The Provocateurs show including POSE, RETNA, and Cleon Peterson. The majority of the fine art is now in our gallery space safely and we are arranging the display for your viewing pleasure. Thanks to Jon Furlong for the awesome photos, and to my crew of Nic Bowers, Dan Flores, and Rob Zagula for assistance on the mural. Stay tuned for wall art updates from both indoors and outdoors.

Art Alliance | The Provocateurs Print Series

A crucial principle of The Provocateurs show is that art should be accessible. In an effort to make work by several of these artists accessible beyond just a convenient exhibition space and free public murals, I thought it was important to produce a limited print series of fine art serigraphs by ten of the artists. These pieces are printed on archival 100% cotton rag paper with deckled edges and are available as matching number sets or individually. Many of the beautiful works in the show may be out of the price range of the average skate punk, struggling musician, or hustler of culture with student loans looming. I’m very proud of how well these prints came out, and I think they are affordable works of art. Initial sales will take place on site at Art Alliance: The Provocateurs in Chicago, but they will go for sale online at the end of the show. Email prints@artalliance.com if you’d like to be first in line to reserve a full set of the ten prints with matching numbers.

CROSS MY HEART HOPE TO DIE x SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS

SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is pleased to present Vita E Morte, the first solo show of new work by multimedia art collective Cross My Heart Hope To Die (CMHHTD). The collective consists of Sean Bonner, Brevi, Andrew Kline (Strife), and DJ Muggs (Cypress Hill).

“I love the intersection of art and music. They are both great alone, but even more powerful when they are creatively intertwined. Our next art show at Subliminal features Cross My Heart Hope To Die, an awesome art and music collective that includes Andrew Kline of hardcore band Strife, DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill, and Sean Bonner, an artist, designer, and Internet activism guru. These guys collaborated on music, art, video, and public installations all with the intention of bringing wonder and excitement back into discovering music and art. I’m a big fan of all of these guys as individuals, but the collaboration between the three takes them into unique territory. Check out more on their art show Vita E Morte here!  They will be performing live, so the show will be an audio visual extravaganza not to be missed!”
