OIL & WATER
A group show of new works and art curated by James Banuelos & Mike Glory
Traditionally oil and water do not mix. The surf, hot rod and motorcycle cultures that grew out of
Southern California from the 50's-70s however, were all connected by the idea of personal freedom and
expression-not conforming to the standards of the societies they existed in. For this show we are bringing
together dozens of artists and craftsmen from these respective backgrounds and beyond-from legends to
rookies. Each artists will be provided with a particular canvas: a blank board from City Fog Surfboards,
helmets from Biltwell, gas tanks from Lowbrow Customs among other items.
To kick off the event a run was organized for the day that ended at the gallery on Fairfax. On hand
there was a live performance by ex-TSOL singer Joe Woods, as well as live installation.
To coincide with the show, Us Versus Them creatated a pop up shop that will occupy the back room at
Known Gallery. In addition to UVT Fall product and accessories, exclusive artist prints and tees based around some of the pieces included in the show will be for sale.
