HVW8 Gallery, 661 N Spaulding Ave, Los Angeles, CA
HVW8 Gallery, Almost Skateboards and Cliché Skateboards are proud present DUET, a celebration of art and skateboarding featuring the work of internationally renowned French artists Jean Jullien and Jean André. The opening reception will be held on Thursday July 7th at HVW8 Gallery, in Los Angeles, California.
In addition to new original works from each artist, the show will feature a special showing of limited edition skate decks along with other limited items. Only 50 decks of each unique edition will be made.
Jean Jullien is a French graphic artist whose tongue-in-cheek works often have the ability to capture the imagination while making a poignant observation about the subject matter in question. His comical style often captures reflections on everyday life or current events and pokes fun at the mundane, but at the same time is provocative enough to elicit a profound reaction in the viewer.
Jean André is a French artist that often uses the female form and erotic imagery as the focus of his work. His “gentleman art” can often be cited as both pulp and satire that draws on influences from Matisse and Gainsbourg to Drake and 80’s eroticism.
HVW8 Gallery was founded in 2006 with the goal of supporting contemporary art and avant-garde graphic design, and has featured past solo exhibitions with both Jean André and Jean Jullien.
