 Innocnts returns to Shepard Fairey’s Subliminal Projects in Echo Park to curate the second edition of WE ARE THE ROMANTIC ONES, a Saint Valentine’s Day group exhibition including emotive driven painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, and installation. Last year’s one-night-only exhibition was greeted by warm crowds and goods vibes. A collection of long stem roses was available to any gal in attendance and Innocnts bootlegged some red wine from a Trader Joe’s truck to set the mood right. It was such a successful night that Subliminal Projects offered Innocnts another go this year. This time around the exhibition will run for 3 weeks from February 14th through March 3rd. The opening reception on Saint Valentine’s Night will include a special intimate Hip-Hop performance about a girlfriend by Kapeesh and select oldies vinyl by Jordan Blackmon (Toro Y Moi guitarist). Join us at Subliminal Projects Wednesday, February 14th from 7pm to 10pm as we kick off the opening reception.

Recap: Never Mind The Dog At Innocnts

We had a great opening last Saturday (11/28) for Never Mind The Dog, a group exhibition curated by Jose Araujo. Inspired by conditions of rebellion, street themes, outsider markings, and other concepts of thought, much of the work in NMTD is socially reflective of the times we live yet holds nostalgic relevance through it's cultural awareness. Curated with a focus on shades of black, white, and grey, Jose and crew transformed the gallery space by airbrushing a brick wall on one side with buffed tags on the opposing wall. Similar scaled work from a solid crew of respected tattoo artists adorned the walls making the space visually stimulating upon entry. In the back corner Jose created a small tattoo shop installation complete with checkered floor, a VHS tv, and various tattoo ephemera strewn across the work desk. Later on in the night local synth metal band DiVola put a killer performance for gallery patrons. And to top it all off, the night was blessed with free beer and pizza compliments of Pabst Blue Ribbon and Delicious Pizza keeping everyone in proper form.

The following Sunday Jose setup in the gallery space offering $40 tattoos on a first come first serve basis while we grilled up some Asada and Pollo with some cold beers. Our friends at Badseed Printing parked out front and had a nice sidewalk sale with various items including vintage pornos, Beavis & Butthead magnets, Innocnts tees, custom beer coozys, and other favorable items for that certain someone in your life. It was a solid weekend overall to say the least.

The show was just a 2-day pop-up so if you missed it, you're outta luck. That said, we do have an exhibition pdf catalog with available for those interested. Contact us here for more details.

Recap Aaron Elvis Jupin At Innocnts Gallery

Aaron Elvis Jupin makes rad things. He also skates pretty good. Plus he's a great human being. That's why we love him. A Few weeks back we celebrated the opening of his solo exhibition // HOW'D I GET HERE? //  at Innocnts Gallery. OUR DUDES AT House Beer hooked up cold ones and Aaron's girlfriend had the sickest playlist. A bunch of our friends came out and we reveled in the good vibes. Here's some pics from the exhibition and opening.

Recap // Nothings Too Precious

The opening of Nothings Too Precious went down earlier this month with much success. Inspired by the accessibility and honesty found through skateboarding, "Nothings Too Precious" features a selection of smaller works from noted skateboarders. And in keeping with the exhibition's intent, all work is priced modestly at $100. Much of the work sold and all that attended would likely agree it was an amazing night. The exhibition remains up through the end of the month with regular business hours of operation. There is still some great work that remains and we have a pdf catalog for anyone interested in available work.

Much appreciation to Krusin Skate Shop and Pabst Blue Ribbon for their continued support!!!
