As the cornerstone of the new book release, Face to Face: 25 Years of SoCal Punk, Sugar Press partnered with us for this art exhibition and limited print release as a chance to meet-and-greet the band members and artists and collect state-of-the-art, eco-friendly, museum-quality art prints to celebrate the book’s release. The exhibition will feature artworks created for Face to Face over the last 25 years as well as artists they inspired such as Shepard Fairey, Corey Miller from LA Ink, and Stephen Stickler. From very graphic, bold work to detailed “low brow,” this dynamic showing of paintings and photographs directly influenced by the band, coupled with the new, limited-edition contemporary art prints, is a stunning explosion of mind-blowing art and inspiration is sure to thrill all Face to Face fans as well as punk enthusiasts.

“The creative line-up for the Face to Face book party makes it feel like the coolest art class reunion ever!”
- Jim Evans aka TAZ

Other artists exhibiting include Aaron Tanner, Andrew Vastagh, Billy Skelly, Elena Bundy, Enemy Ink, Hooter Hicks, Jeffrey Everett, Jim Evans aka TAZ, Kalynn Campbell, Kevin Baldes, Lou Xray, and Todd Fixler.
