Opening night recap: 123Klan’s “Style Is The Message”

Thank you for coming to celebrate the opening of 123Klan’s new solo show, “Style Is The Message”! The gallery has taken on a life of it’s own… the duo hooked up the entire space with murals, Band1tism gear, and even some 123Klan furniture. We had so much fun meeting all you Band1tism fans, and seeing our 1AM friends & family. If you weren’t able to make it, swing by the gallery before June 2nd to see what all the talk is about! The team is here Tuesday through Saturday, from noon until 6:30pm. Contact artsales@1amgallery.com for a catalog.

123Klan’s “Style Is The Message” Opens Tomorrow!

 

San Francisco! Join us tomorrow for the very special opening reception of 123Klan’s solo show, “Style Is The Message”, from 6:30 – 9:30PM. Along with an insane collection of new original artwork, we’ll have silkscreen posters & limited BANDIT1SM gear available.

Originally hailing from France, this dynamic husband and wife duo is now operating out of Montreal, and they’ve created an entire body of work exclusively for their San Francisco debut at 1AM. The collection is punchy, satirical, and a visual commentary on Bay Area culture, U.S. state of affairs, and the generally unique energy of California.

Scien has flown in from Montreal, and we’re ready to celebrate… See you tomorrow night! (1000 Howard @ 6th)

Originally expecting to have about 30 pieces donated to the show, by the opening night, we had over 90 pieces of artwork on the gallery walls!

123Klan at Rodearte Festival in Guadalajara

123klan-rodearte-2015-1

Making Guadalajara itself a giant public exhibition, the Rodearte festival brings together a roster of muralists to promote global peace. 123Klan brought along their Canadian friend Maple the squirrel, in celebration of their recent Canadian citizenship (congratulations!). Scien & Klor dedicated this iconic mural to the children of Oblatos, using their hybrid of graffiti and graphic design to finish the giant 65 foot wall in just 3 days.

We’re stoked to have 123Klan showing with us in April 2016, more details to come soon!
