July 8 to August 26 at The Painted Bird, Los Angeles.
Building on the history and visual language of punk fashion and fan art, artist Matt Momchilov has created a series of portrait jackets which insert unexpected subversive cultural pioneers into the lexicon of punk rock fan art. These works are both a celebration of the figures themselves, and a way to understand the histories and cultural contributions of these unlikely vanguards as important models of rebellion. On view in American Leather will be a selection of pieces from this series. This is the premier Los Angeles solo exhibition from the artist.
