Opening on Friday June 4th, we’ll be presenting a series of work from the legendary Los Angeles based artist, Coop at our Brooklyn based 350 Broadway gallery. This will mark the first time since 2001 that Coop will be showing any work in New York.
The show is a collection of work inspired by Coop’s recent collaboration with NagNagNag on his Boryoku Genjin figure. Much of the preliminary work and concepts such as original sketches and header card will be included in the show as well as a very special custom figure by the creator of NagNagNag.
In addition to the show we will be offering two limited edition t-shirts featuring Coop’s artwork. The first shirt available in both white and black is pictured above and features one of Coop’s classic Devil’s having the Boryoku Genjin sign his soul away for fame and fortune! The second shirt is available in only black and features the dissected Boryoku Genjin featured on the show flier in glow-in-the-dark ink. There will also be a silkscreen print of that same graphic available for sale at 350 Broadway.
Coop arrived in Los Angeles in the late 80’s where he immediately got to work subverting the mainstream applying his artwork to a number of merchandise including t-shirts, mugs, posers and even Zippo lighters. Much of his work included doing a host of poster art, including rock posters for Nirvana, Soundgarden, The Sex Pistols and album cover art for notable bands like the Monomen and the Ramones.
During his illustrious career, Coop has been featured in numerous magazines and has published two books – The Devil’s Advocate and The Big Fat One, a 1008-page sketchbook, which was released in October 2002.
The Coop art show will run from Friday June 4th to July 16th at our flagship Brooklyn store.
