Known Gallery Presents: “Mind in Transit” New Works by CEPT and THANK YOU X (Los Angeles, CA)

Known Gallery
Known Gallery is proud to present MIND IN TRANSIT, an exhibit of new solo work by London born graffiti artist/painter CEPT and Los Angeles native street artist/painter THANK YOU X. In the project room, world famous graffiti artist REMIO will exhibit a new series of canvas paintings.

This is first U.S. exhibit for British artist CEPT. A legend of the London graffiti scene since his youth, over the last 20 years CEPT has expanded to mural painting, collage artwork and incredible immersive large-scale multimedia installations. His artwork has exhibited all over the globe and this new series is the beginning of the next evolution in his gallery work, incorporating figurative elements and art history into abstract painting. Very inspired by the arrangement and collation of sampled music, CEPT paints the way he listens to music, allowing the variety and remixing of sounds to open him up to constructing something new. His paintings combine rich colors and romantic images of yesterday with slick pop iconography of today. Mixing the old and the new influences the visual worlds of his art, a future primitive.

THANK YOU X became well known on the streets of Los Angeles a few years ago, largely in part to his large 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. Still very inspired by the pop tropes and bright colors of that NYC art scene, THANK YOU X will show new large-scale paintings featuring the canon of iconic imagery he respects. A dark background with pastel and near-fluorescent color combination, topped with a thick resin surface creates the slick glossy pop paintings that THANK YOU X both enjoys himself and continues to involve in his personal visual narrative.

Black Book Gallery Presents: “Knock it Out” A group Exhibition And Fundraiser (Denver, CO)

Black Book Gallery is using art as a platform to support Love Hope Strength Foundation’s (LHSF) mission of saving the lives of people with cancer. Cancer took the life of Co-owner Thomas Horne’s twin brother, Tim, as well as millions of others world-wide each year. The show titled, “Knock it Out” is Tom’s tribute to all the families,patients, and victims of this devastating disease. (www.knockitout.org). Everyone, in every corner of the world, knows someone affected by cancer, and on the evening of Friday, April 5th, 2013, Black Book Gallery invites us all to come together to celebrate the lives of our loved ones.

Horne and his partner, Will Suitts, at Black Book Gallery, have been working tirelessly to put together an amazing group of both national and international artists; many of whom are creating original works specifically for this show. These artists are leading the way in supporting LHSF’s “Get On the List” campaign, as well as LHSF’s Children’s Cancer Center in Tanzania. The night will be filled with art, music, fun, and a bone marrow drive which will allow you to register with the Get On the List Campaign. Black Book Gallery hopes to make a donation of $10K from original artwork sales that will help fund a Doctor at the Love Hope Strength Children’s Cancer Center in Tanzania.
