Trav is a California-based artist who was raised on traditional letter-based graffiti. Well versed in typography, as well as the use of color, form, and line; he has adapted this diverse skill set to create an impressive new body of work. He draws much of his inspiration from hand painted signs, fashion and geometric patterns. The goal for this show is to create thought-provoking paintings that straddle the line between a traditional sign painting aesthetic, and more colorful geometric patterns reminiscent of those seen within his graffiti. The result of this pairing is somewhat of a departure from his earlier work, which was more heavily rooted in a complex graffiti aesthetic. Forgoing some of the more abstracted letter-forms, he has simplified the lettering to more easily recognizable typography. This was done in order to bring the literal messages to the forefront. Paying homage to the tradition of commercial sign painting, he paints sayings that he finds meaningful, onto wooden panels using oil-based sign painters enamel. Trav’s raw creativity, painstaking attention to detail, and mastery of color and design combine to form an exciting new body of work.

TIM CONLON | ONE TRACK MIND opens June 7, 2014

TIM-CONLON-flyer

One Track Mind pays homage to Conlon’s twenty-year obsession with freight train graffiti. In this exhibition, Conlon will showcase a new series of his Blank Canvas works which include life-size aerosol paintings of aged freight cars and weathered model trains featuring scaled-to-size graffiti. About this collection of works, Conlon says, “I discovered this art form when I was living in Baltimore and the nationwide freight train graffiti scene was just emerging. Because Baltimore is one of the biggest port cities on the east coast, commercial cargo regularly arrived on large ships in Baltimore Harbor and was then transferred to freight trains headed toward larger cities like Atlanta, St. Louis, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Train cars were everywhere and, in many ways, served as a revolving art gallery for graffiti and train lovers alike.” In the years since, many train companies have merged or closed, but the images of the trains, their brands, and their graffiti have stayed with Conlon. Fascinated by the logos, typography, and color schemes of freight trains old and new, One Track Mind recreates and showcases some of his favorites.

Tim Conlon is an artist living and working in Washington. He grew up just south of D.C., and is best known for large-scale murals, graffiti art, sculpture and works on canvas. He was one of two aerosol artists featured in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s 2008 exhibition, RECOGNIZE! Hip Hop and Contemporary Portraiture. In 2011, he was featured and curated the G scale train exhibit in the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art’s, Art in The Streets survey of graffiti and street art. His Blank Canvas train paintings are in multiple collections, including the Norfolk Southern Railway Corporation’s headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia. Conlon has recently exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., along with shows and projects in New York, Miami, San Francisco, Paris, Bordeaux and Berlin.

Roger Gastman | TOOLS OF CRIMINAL MISCHIEF opens June 7, 2014

TOCM flyer FINAL-01

TOOLS OF CRIMINAL MISCHIEF  represents the humor and independence of the underground through the methods of misconduct and delinquency. TOCM expresses the artistic freedom of deviant behavior in a “tongue in cheek” style. The philosophy of non-conformity is an attitude rich in history and fun. The TOCM aesthetic shines a light on the irony and stigma that is often associated with a lifestyle people infatuate and romanticize. It is the method behind the brilliant and hilarious madness of the lawbreaker.

Roger Gastman is a collector, curator, graffiti historian and urban anthropologist. This special selection of Gastman’s private collection of TOCM artwork and ephemera conceptually represents the way civil disobedience is practiced and how these methods have influenced artists and society. The danger, history, process, propaganda, spray cans, magic markers, local styles, Internet curiosities and things you can’t un-see are just a few parts of this naughtiness that Roger Gastman fixates on. The oddities and rarities of the ideas executed are what excite him -especially pedestrian graffiti and the strange pop culture references. This is his personal collection that he’s handpicked over several years and for the first time it will be exhibited and on sale to the public. Highlights of the collection span from a wall of 30+ anti-graffiti signage, strange Craig’s List ads, anti-drug photographs and propaganda, original graffiti Garbage Pail Kids cards from around the world, spray paint can prints, and a wall of unusual original and found art significant to Gastman’s personal tastes. To celebrate this exhibition, Gastman and artist THANK YOU X collaborated on a TOCM capsule collection of merchandise (t-shirts, tanks, socks, hats, and more) that The Seventh Letter will release and have available for sale at their Flagship Store, select retailers, and online at theseventhletter.com

About Roger Gastman: Roger Gastman began writing graffiti as a teenager in Bethesda, Maryland, and later parlayed his love for it into a legitimate career, becoming a trusted mediator between the underground art scenes and mainstream culture. He founded and published two respected pop-culture magazines—While You Were Sleeping and Swindle (co-publisher with Shepard Fairey)—as well as more than 30 highly sought-after art books. Gastman served as consulting producer for Banksy’s Exit Through the Gift Shop,which earned an Academy Award nomination for best documentary. In 2013, Harper Collins released Gastman’s The History of American Graffiti—the definitive story behind the most influential art form in the last 100 years—and Jeffrey Deitch asked him to co-curate Art in the Streets at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, which is the first comprehensive U.S. museum survey of graffiti and street art. He curated PUMP ME UP: D.C. subculture of the 1980s at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in 2013 and produced the companion documentary narrated by Henry Rollins, The Legend of COOL “DISCO” DAN, an educational film about D.C. culture and their most prolific graffiti artist. He’s currently directing a documentary for Sanrio/Hello Kitty on the history of the brand and its fans.

About THANK YOU X: THANK YOU X became well known on the streets of Los Angeles for his large iconic Warhol wheat paste. Signing THANK YOU X underneath in a gesture of anonymous gratitude for Warhol’s aesthetic of rebellious integrity, the name accidentally became the artist’s identity. Inspired by the pop tropes and bright colors of that NYC art scene, THANK YOU X has exhibited paintings and sculptures in London, Los Angeles, and in New York at the Hello Kitty Hello Art show. He’s created large installations at the Sundance Film Festival, painted a custom car for Lexus, and is collected by celebrities like Demi Moore and Paul McCartney. THANK YOU X is also a DJ/producer and loves pizza more than anyone.
