To celebrate the reopening of groundbreaking gallery SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS in its new location on 1331 W Sunset Blvd this Saturday nite, April 5th, founder SHEPARD FAIREY has chosen none other than Parisian street artist BLEK LE RAT as the subject of the hotspot's inaugural exhibition. Blek's "Art is Not Peace but War," a show of new spraypaint on canvas works by the pioneering artist whose work predates that of followers like Fairey, Banksy, and Nick Walker by over a decade showcases his seminal high contrast iconography in what will be the artist's first solo exhibition in the US. For all those fans not lucky enough to get their hands on an original (prices range from $9,000–$40,000), Subliminal is making available a set of four black and white prints of Blek's work as photographed on the street by Sybille Prou, and signed by her, Blek, and the Rat's frequent co-conspirator, Shepard Fairey for $100 each. The show opens at 8pm, the faithful best start saving their pennies now, and plan to queue up early.
