> DESCRIPTION

D5 Gallery
During the months of March and April – Robert Berman Gallery presents a select overview of forerunners of the street/graffiti art movement and the new surrealism– aka low brow. Mixed in with these established outsiders will be artists rooted in other genres but whose work also explores the street phenomena. The tie that binds this exhibition is a commitment to the idea of urban space and works meant to be outside as well as inside, both in the physical and literal sense.


Highlights of the exhibition include works by Robert Williams, an original panel from the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts - San Francisco by Barry McGee, rare prints and posters by Robbie Conal, Shepard Fairey and Banksy, a major painting by James Doolin from 1991 of a downtown LA freeway-scape titled “East Wind” and a Retna 12’ x 4’ wood panel from the Seventh Letter Collective show - Angels Will Rise. Also, from the Dennis Hopper collection, a seminal pastel on paper by John Valadez (pictured below) “Leed’s Shoes,” 38.75” x 100”

The show runs in conjunction with The Album Cover Art of Shepard Fairey - REVOLUTIONS, opening Saturday, March 12 from 8 - 11pm (Robert Berman / C2 Gallery.)
