We’ll be selling 150 of the 7-inches releasing on April 28 so if you can’t find it in a shop, check our website. More will be posting soon, thanks as always for caring!

SURFACE | Portraits of Street Artists | The photography of Søren Solkær

SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is pleased to present SURFACE, an exhibition featuring portraits of street artists taken by Danish photographer Søren Solkær. The images are part of a larger book project that began in 2012 and continued into 2015. For three years, Solkær traveled internationally, photographing street artists in their element and showcasing them alongside their art in public spaces. The project culminated in a publication that ultimately serves as a portrait anthology of many significant street artists in the contemporary art scene, as well as the genre’s pioneering icons.

Opening Reception is Saturday, April 25 · 8 – 11 pm showing through May 23, 2015

1331 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026  |  SubliminalProjects.com

Power Bidder

I have frequently talked about the many problems created by the current campaign finance structure. Corporate donations distort their influence in politics and corrupt our democracy. This is an issue not many Americans seem interested in, but it affects all Americans by insuring that corporate interests are put before the interests of the average person. Genuine democracy should guarantee that politicians create the greatest good for the greatest number of people, but that idea has eroded with the favors owed by politicians to corporations in exchange for their contributions. A portion of the proceeds from the “Power Bidder” print will go to two organizations who are fighting  against political corruption, and for campaign finance reform. They are rootstrikers.org and unitedrepublic.org. Check out their sites. These orgs are doing great work, so please support them! Thanks for caring.

How teachers are funding gun companies against their will • The Real NRA #4 • BRAVE NEW FILMS

Breaking News: California teachers demand their money be taken out of gun companies. 

Two years after the largest teachers’ pension fund in the world, CalSTRS, voted to sell off all investments in firearm companies, they still have $500 million tied up with guns through Cerberus Capital Management.  Even after this vote to divest, Cerberus has kept the teachers’ money invested in gun manufacturer Bushmaster/Remington Outdoor Inc. – the company that made the gun used in the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.


Join with teachers to say enough is enough! Don’t let teachers’ dollars fund another school shooting!

Justin Peck’s Heatscape opens today!

The Miami City Ballet opens today with Justin Peck’s Heatscape featuring my set design. I’m a big fan of Robert Rauschenberg who collaborated with Merce Cunningham, so the idea of collaborating with a choreographer in the same vein appealed to me. Beyond the historical association I mentioned, I’m a big fan of putting my work in front of people using unexpected platforms. The cross-pollination that can happen between the ballet and street art audiences is exciting to me. If you’re in the Miami area be sure to check out the show! – Shepard

The Music of David Lynch

I’m a big fan of David Lynch’s movies, art, and music so I was excited to be asked to create an image for the David Lynch Foundation, his Transcendental Meditation organization. This is the second time that I was asked to make something for the foundation, I also did the image for the David Lynch Foundation benefit concert featuring Paul McCartney at Radio City Music Hall back in 2009.
I think David is a unique personality as well as someone with a unique look.  It is great to try to capture him in an illustration because he is such an icon.  This is a solid organization to support, so if you purchase the print consider it as a win-win, you get a poster and support a worthwhile cause.
The lineup for “The Music of David Lynch” is awesome, so check it out next Wednesday, April 1 at The Ace Theater in downtown Los Angeles. There are a very limited number of the VIP tickets left.  If you’re interested check it out here.
