"DRAW" Group Art Show Comes to SFJuxtapoz // Monday, 30 Mar 2009
DRAW is a must-see art exhibition featuring original drawings by 300 artists in the tattoo, literature, design, illustration, animation, skateboard, music, urban, psychedelic and new contemporary art worlds. The show is a tribute to the often-underrated but fundamental building block of visual and graphic art: the drawing.
DRAW is the largest contemporary drawing exhibition to emerge out of New York City. The exhibit debuted in October of 2006 at NYC’s Fuse Gallery to phenomenal response from audience and press alike.
It had an equally impressive showing during the SXSW 2007 Music and Interactive-Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Most recently, the exhibit drew over 2000 people to its London debut at StolenSpace, East London’s Leading Contemporary Urban Art Gallery. DRAW is currently on a six-country world tour that includes future showings in Tokyo, Paris, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Berlin.
DRAW is curated by Erik Foss and Curse Mackey with guest curators Justin Giarla, Jamie O’Shea, Tim Barber, Damien Weinkratz, Les Barany, Brendan Fowler, Mike Aho, Sto, Victoria Perez and D* Face. Now it is making its way over to San Francisco for a showing opening April 11th, from 7-11pm at The Shooting Gallery.
Artists whose original works are in the show include: Moby, HR Giger, Clive Barker, Eric White, Rich Jacobs, Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance, Gibby Haynes of Butthole Surfers, psychedelic legend Rick Griffin, Ron English, Neck Face, Corey Miller (LA Ink), Camille Rose Garcia, Tim Biskup, Ed Templeton, Benjamin Cho, skate legend Mark Gonzales, Mark Bode, Kevin Llewellyn, Michael Hussar, Jack Rudy, DAZE, Derek Hess, Rich Jacobs, KAWS, Mark Dean Veca, Kon Trubkovich, Brian Degraw, The Serra Brothers, Nate Loman, Brendan Fowler, Hank Williams III, Kerry King, WK Interact, Barry McGee, Shawn Barber, Aurel Schmidt, Tobin Yelland, Doze Green, Chris Johanson, Tara McPherson and many more.
