A few words from our founder Shepard Fairey on artist Steve Keene and his upcoming solo exhibition here at Subliminal Projects!
When I first discovered the work of Steve Keene in the 90’s I was fascinated by his process of working quickly to create multiple versions of paintings that would allow him to keep the prices low, yet make each painting an original. I soon realized that he was addressing a lot of the coolest indie scene subject matter and that from any of my diverse interests there was probably some connection only a few degrees of separation from Keene. I’m really excited about the work he’s doing for “Modular Synthesis,” his show opening at our gallery Subliminal Projects later this month. The exhibition will feature his interpretations of classic album covers and hip Los Angeles landmarks, as well as the debut of his Tattooed Plywood pieces. This guy must be the most prolific artist of all time and his process is fascinating; it’s a must-see show! Hope to see you on January 16th! – Shepard Fairey
