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)

Street Art and Social Change: Fintan Magee and Rising Waters

Fintan Magee 3

Australian artist, Fintan Magee, was hard at work painting in Puerto Rico recently at the annual Santurce es Ley Festival. For his contribution, Magee painted a young local boy from San Juan wading through thigh-high water with an iceberg on his back, inviting onlookers to ask themselves what our impact on the world’s environment could mean for those who live at sea level. There are a huge number of people around the world who live directly on the coast, and who’s livelihood is completely dependent upon the ocean. He writes, “Despite the low C02 emissions of small island states in the Caribbean; rising sea levels, increasing natural disasters and other affects of climate change are a huge threat to the small nations who’s economies are dependent on fishing, tourism and agriculture.”
