In conjunction with Noise Pop 2011, FIFTY24SF has organized graffiti, sticker, and fine artist PEZ to exhibit a collection of album covers done in his signature style for a full showing titled, Louder Than Bombs. The exhibition will open this Wednesday, February 2nd, at FIFTY24SF’s former space at 248 Fillmore Street. Louder Than Bombs kicks off over a month of activities, as Noise Pop will turn our pop-up store into their art headquarters before and during the traditional Noise Pop Music Festival.
Here is the full press release:
Noise Pop x FIFTY24sf present PEZ “Louder Than Bombs”. The title “Louder Than Bombs” is in direct reference to The Smiths compilation album released in 1987, the band, and Morrissey, being a personal favorite of the artist. As a long time Bay Area staple PEZ’s hand style and graffiti has been seen most places you’ve looked—but his record covers and limited edition zines have reached cult status over the last few years and this exhibition reveals what makes the underground music, art and culture of the Bay Area so special.
About the Artist: PEZ is widely recognized around the world as one of the earliest sticker taggers in the history of graffiti, following in the footsteps of the legendary and infamous graffiti artists, Cost and Revs. He documented his experiences in with his Nikon FM2 35mm camera, and continued to post his stickers and other printed work around NYC. Today, Pez continues to make stickers and publish photography zines. Pez has exhibited in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, and Tokyo.
