ARISTOCRATS LOS ANGELES
349 e. 2nd st. Los Angeles, CA 90012
Show casing new works by Benjie and Suedehead, 2 Los Angeles based illustrators and graphic designers. Both are heavily involved in the street wear world, where deadlines are constantly shifting and morphing, and errors, slips and miscommunication are all part of the game, making “technical difficulties” the best go to phrase to keep afloat.
In addition to new art pieces, a limited edition zine dedicated to the art show will be available with artist sketches and references to give a behind the scenes look of the art show. Also 2 limited artist collaboration T shirts will be available through the Aristocrats boutique only.
opening night will include Complimentary drinks, limited edition product from the artists, and live Djs.
