HARLEY-DAVIDSON PRESENTS: ART OF REBELLION New York Art Show, One Night Only - Saturday October 17 At LA.Venue In Chelsea, NYC
ART OF REBELLION: Art meets motorcycle culture…
The ART OF REBELLION brings together 10 U.S. artists hand-picked by Harley-Davidson®--icons and emerging artists who are world-renowned in both the music and art worlds for their rock poster artwork. Their work will be on display at the ART OF REBELLION show Saturday, October 17 at La.VENUE (608 W. 28th Street New York, NY). The artists chosen for the event in the West Chelsea gallery district are Art Chantry, Brian Ewing, Derek Hess, Dirty Donny, Frank Kozik, Harpoon, John Van Hamersveld, Lindsey Kuhn, Tara McPherson and The Pizz.
“These artists represent the rebellious spirit that we very much connect with-mixing old with new, defying boundaries and creating fresh individual perspectives,” said Susanne Dawursk, Harley-Davidson director of Outreach Marketing. “The Art Of Rebellion is a must-see event that showcases the artists and supports the art community at large.”
Harley-Davidson created ART OF REBELLION as a forum for artists to showcase their work and interact with other artists, galleries and media, as well as give them the needed opportunity and exposure to help further their careers and leverage their credibility in the art scene. For the show, each artist will paint one Harley-Davidson Iron 883TM gas tank and they will also sell signature art posters at the show. The Iron 883--part of the Harley-Davidson’s Dark Custom line which fuses minimalist design with a vintage feel--evokes the adventurous spirit of the dawn of the 60’s motorcycle rebellion.
A portion of the proceeds from poster and tank sales will go to CUE Art Foundation. CUE Art Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit forum for contemporary art that gives artists, students, scholars and art professionals resources at many stages of their careers and creative lives (http://www.cueartfoundation.org/).
Born and raised in Los Angeles, the influence of the city surfaces in Kofie’s spiraling, mechanical structures, which often resemble abstracted cityscapes and industrial developments. Involved in street art as a teenager, his work began as traditional graffiti-inspired characters; over time, as he began breaking down those characters, they evolved into the massive, architectural paintings he’s now revered for. In addition to appearing on his Draftsmen clothing line and in numerous magazines, Kofie’s artwork has been displayed in exhibitions in major cities throughout Japan and the United States, including Tokyo, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Boston.

Circus Posterus has just recently added a *brand NEW message board forum to the site. This forum will be a one stop source for fans to directly connect to CP or Circus’ roster of international artists and designers and share a connection. Sas Christian, Travis Louie and Kathie Olivas and the rest of the crew – all have their own sections that offer a direct glimpse into their fine art, design and world. The boards will also serve to be the most real-time way to ask Circus Posterus questions directly (…an option that most companies don’t offer) - from contests to sneak-peaks to exclusive on-line offers - CP’s Message Board will be your direct ticket to the Circus.
