Immitation is the Highest form of Flattery

Kudos to us when the worlds most formidable lifestyle brand is borrowing our marketing strategies. While Harley was less inclined to lend us their name for a stroller collaboration, at least they are more willing to take a stab at the Tins for Tots concept. If we were offended, which we are not, it would certainly be an opportunity to round up the throngs of shamed teens with parents facing mid life crisis to start K.AD.L.P. [ Kids Against Dads in Leather Pants]. Ah, so much more then a long acronym. All jokes aside, it’s an incredible line up and congratulations to Shepard for his portrait of Obama having been inducted into the Smithsonian Institute.  I remember in back in the day, armed with wheatpaste and a dream how Obey became the medium for the message. Now with a magazine, studio and worldwide following, it is a small step for art and an Andre the Giant step for urban culture.

Here is the information on the show:

The Art of Rebellion is a one-night only event taking place on Saturday, February 7th at the Robert Berman Gallery in Santa Monica’s Bergamot Station Arts Center. All the artwork is for sale and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Art Matters, a foundation that assists socially and aesthetically groundbreaking artists. There will also be giveaways of a limited edition Shepard Fairey poster, an open bar and DJs. 
The featured artists are: Shawn Barber,  Christian Clayton,  Rob Clayton,  Bob Dob, Shepard Fairey,  Frank Kozik,  Tara McPherson,  Alex Pardee, David Trulli,  Mark Dean Veca and  Oliver Vernon.
