The Murder Lounge Art Collective is proud to bring you Downtown Denim, a collaborative art project consisting of paintings on designer denim-covered panels. The first installment of this traveling show opens Friday September 20th at the Sicky Nar Nar Gallery in Savannah Georgia. Participating artists include members of the collective and more than 20 different artists from across the country.
The Murder Lounge is an artists collective born out of the Fountain Art Fair. At its core, the collective consists of four artists: Dave Tree, Victor Cox, Rob Servo and Sergio Coyote. Over the past 5 years, the collective has exhibited at Fountain Art Fair in New York, Miami, and LA. Outside of Fountain, the Murder Lounge has participated in art shows in New York, London, Oakland, and Boston.
New York City has long been recognized as a world leader in both fashion and art. This exhibition fuses these two worlds, taking a raw fashion material and bringing it into the realm of fine art. Each panel in the exhibition has been individually worked on by at least one member of the collective, and then passed off to guest artists to add on to. The finished panels are then framed in Black Walnut wood from the Finger Lakes region of New York.
Downtown Denim began as an experiment between diverse collaborators, including street artists, abstract and realist painters, sculptors and tattoo artists alike. The end result is an eclectic collection of artworks that are unified through cohesive material use.
