Out for Blood
Los Angeles Street Artist Haunted Euth is pleased to announce “Out for Blood”, his newest solo exhibition opening October 5, 2013 at GCS Santa Ana. Haunted Euth will be unveiling a massive 9” x 30” acrylic painting on paper about American history and war entitled "Every Fucking Ten Years" along with other large paintings, hand painted multiples (H.P.M.’s), graphite illustrations, wooden panel paintings, drawings, prints and more featuring Haunted Euth’s distinctive street art which has been seen installed in campaigns all over Los Angeles. Opening reception will take place October 5, 2013 from 6 pm to 11 pm. Exhibition will be on view through November 5, 2013. GCS Santa Ana is located at 209 N. Broadway, Santa Ana, CA 92701.
“Out for Blood” presents a body of work with a marriage of techniques from screen printing to painting with acrylics, usage of graphite, illustration and more. The theme of the exhibition concentrates on skateboarding in California, riding and crashing motorcycles, living life paycheck to paycheck, obsessing over women and hiding in the pages of comic books to get away from reality. There are numerous references to heavy metal, punk, skateboarding, drinking, drugs and graffiti buried inside each piece.
Haunted Euth employs an organic process where his captured moments within his mind spark his hands to aggressively push graphite, tear paper, mix vibrant colors, pour ink and then feel an immediate desire to repeat the process over and over. “It is a self absorbed and lone process that can provide you the highest high you will ever feel, or the most crippling sense of failure you can imagine,” says Haunted Euth regarding his creation process. Haunted Euth’s motivations for creating are the rise and fall, the failure and success and balancing between the two for the sake of true love and passion for what he creates. Driven and completely consumed, Haunted Euth eat, sleeps and dreams art and will never stop.
Many may also know Haunted Euth for his Scream Icon which has been plastered on the walls as street art in Los Angeles and elsewhere. This same Scream Icon was then used without permission from the artist as a video backdrop during Green Day’s 21st Century Breakdown tour. The artist filed for instant action against Green Day for copyright infringement and after a long battle for his artistic rights against Warner Brothers and the multi-million band, Haunted Euth lost his case. Haunted Euth’s landmark copyright case made headlines nation. The artists Scream Icon will be on display and entitled “Fuck Green Day” during his solo exhibition “Out for Blood.” Haunted Euth encourages all artists to stand up for their artistic rights!
