SCION AUDIO VISUAL, the creative enterprise of Scion devoted to the discovery, nurture, funding and distribution of compelling music and arts programming, presents the first ever exhibition of Steve Aoki’s collection of fan art in Los Angeles. Steve Aoki is the Los Angeles based grammy-award nominated electronic music producer, record label owner and DJ.
“Working with Steve in a capacity beyond the scope of his music has been a pleasure. Scion’s total commitment to support the creative community is best displayed when we can provide the opportunity for Artists to change their media and push their own creative boundaries.” – Jeri Yoshizu, Scion Sales Promotions Manager
The exclusive Scion AV exhibition will consist of artwork created by fans for Steve Aoki over the past 10 years. Aoki has collected a decade’s worth of paintings, drawings, sculptures, figures and special mementos that his fans from all over the world have presented to him. There will also be original artwork inspired by Steve Aoki, created by Los Angeles artists; Dev N Gosha.
The opening reception requires RSVP and takes place on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 7pm at the Scion AV Installation located at 7667 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90046. Aoki will be hosting the exhibition and will be at the gallery signing autographs alongside the custom Scion FR-S project car he designed with Scion last year. Limited edition signed and numbered prints of the Dev N Gosha piece, as well as limited Dim Mak merchandise will be available for purchase in store until March 30, 2014.
“Everything I do is about the fans. When Scion approached me with the opportunity of a gallery pop-up I thought it would be an amazing chance to showcase the fan-made art that I’ve collected over the years. DevNGosha is another artist that I admire and when they were open to bringing attention to both the fans and raising money for the Steve Aoki Charitable fund, it seemed like a perfect fit.” – Steve Aoki
For the full duration of this exhibit, all proceeds from the sale of the art prints will go to the Steve Aoki Charitable Fund, which supports primarily newfound issue medical research among other humanitarian efforts. Opening reception RSVP is mandatory – sign up now HERE
