LA///LOUIE CORDERO’S MONSTER MASH-UP…

One of our favorite young artists, Phillipines native LOUIE CORDERO is currently enjoying his first-ever solo exhibition, "Delubyo" (Deluge), at GIANT ROBOT GALLERY in Lost Angels. Featuring large-scale painted canvases and smaller paper and canvas pieces, the show depicts, in the artist's own words, "dead humans mutated into weird zombies like landscapes." Always looking like they've been put through a psychedelic meat grinder, Cordero's paintings combine his outsider-style folk art approach with the graphic influences of Robert Williams, Jim Woodring, and Basil Wolverton with incredibly unique results. It's a perfect fun summer show & more than reason enough to fire up the moped and get your sweaty self out of the crib. HAVE A LOOK: Read More

This Friday lucky Tokions can catch the opening of a monthlong exhibit of new work by one of our all-time favorite photographers DAIDO MORIYAMA when his new show "Hawaii" opens on July 27 at the TAKA ISHII GALLERY in Tokyo. Beginning his often-controversial career in the late 1960s, Moriyama has become an icon of Japanese aesthetics with a body of work that takes an unflinching look at the starkness and subtlety of modern Japanese culture. After becoming infatuated with Hawaii, the artist made five trips to the island paradise to capture glimpses of it in his Read More

GEARHEAD////SHEPARD FAIREY x THE MC5…

July 24, 2007  |  Uncategorized  |  Comments Off

We're not big on hyping product here at ST but when the MC5 collaborate with ANYBODY, we take notice. Especially longtime ally & comrade-in-arms SHEPARD FAIREY. The collaboration in question, which includes a signature military jacket, T-shirt and ballcap, is even more notable because of its otherwise dubious origins: a bootleg. When Shepard discovered the seminal Detroit rockers' trademark white panther logo and assimilated it into a design of his own, the band's Mike Davis took note and reached out to Fairey to make the love affair legit. Now, through his personal clothing label OBEY Shep has put out a hybrid line worthy of the band's riotous legacy. HAVE A CLOSER LOOK: Read More
