Come join us Friday February 3rd at 8:00pm for the opening of "Nothing Goes To Waste" by Two Rabbits Studios. We'll have all the ingredients for a good time. Art, Alcohol, and Beats.
"Nothing Goes to Waste" is a retrospective of work by Bob Motown and Mike Thacker of Two Rabbits Studios. Those who have been to their 3,200 square foot warehouse in downtown LA know the aesthetic appeal of the printing process and the by-products created during any given job.
No mixing stick, test print, mess, strip of paper, or color is wasted at their studio. Motown and Thacker have repurposed and recycled elements of commercial jobs to create new works of fine art that celebrate the method behind their hundreds of hand pulled screen prints.
Their monoprints, which contain endless layers of imagery from test runs of different print editions, are a striking illustration of how art can derive from creative run-off. "Nothing Goes to Waste" will showcase new works alongside a collection of screen printed Two Rabbits classics.
About Two Rabbits
Two Rabbits Studios is a design firm, commercial screen print shop, and fine art studio ran by Los Angeles-based artists Mike Thacker and Bob Motown. Since 2007, the pair have designed and printed hundreds of rock posters and promotional pieces for movies and video games. Two Rabbits started small in a North Hollywood backyard—less than five years later, and they've been featured in galleries, Flatstock poster shows, and craft fairs in the United States and UK. They've worked with Warner Music Group and concert promoters Goldenvoice for artists ranging from Skrillex to Wu Tang to Portishead. Recently, Thacker and Motown's focus has been on fine art pieces that reflect upon their hand-printed process and design. Their work can be seen at tworabbitsstudios.com.
