For his exhibit here in Honolulu, Los Angeles artist and producer, Teebs will unveil his newest collection of artfully repurposed record sleeves at The ARTS at Marks Garage, this time on sleeve pieces from old Hawaiian records found at local thrift stores here in Hawai‘i. Exploring the relationship between music and art, Teebs has become known for combining paint, markers, stenciling, collage, gold foil and rust with the record’s original artwork to breathe new life into the dusty sleeves.
In his music, there’s a deeply rooted sound that connects with our everyday surroundings. It spotlights emotional corners and builds warmth over the listener. His artwork echoes this same feeling in a visual medium. Rich in color, complex, yet leaving enough breathing room for its subjects to shine.
The opening event commences this First Friday, August 6, 2010 at The ARTS at Marks Garage, with music by Oliver Twist, Kavet The Catalyst and Trav15. After 9pm there will be a showing of Dublab’s Secondhand Sureshots documentary and a special performance by Teebs and Vezzen. All ages, $5 after 9pm.
The Space & Sound Exhibit runs from August 3 to September 3.
