Thursday night was the opening of Green Day’s The Art of Rock at StolenSpace Gallery. It would have been easy for Green Day to put together a street art show full of random artists that street art fans would hate but Green Day fans would like because it has the Green Day name on it. Instead, The Art of Rock was curated by Logan Hicks and he got some really talented artists involved.
My personal favorite was this piece by Chris Stain, one of his best I think:
And I think you really have to see Logan Hick’s laser etched pieces in person, but this shot should give you some idea. The background is laser etched.
Each piece in the show (other than Logan’s portraits) is based on the lyrics from a song off of Green Day’s latest album.
If you ever liked Green Day, you need to check out this show. The lineup is solid, the art is great and the connection to music is different.
