Face to Face: 25 Years of SoCal Punk ~ The Last Bookstore

Sugar Press partnered with artists and publisher, Melodic Virtue, for this art exhibition and limited print release. Featuring artworks created for Face to Face over the last 25 years, as well as artists they inspired, such as Shepard Fairey, Corey Miller, from LA Ink, Elena Bundy and Stephen Stickler. From very graphic, bold work, to detailed “”low brow,” this dynamic showing of paintings and photographs, directly influenced by the band, coupled with the new, limited edition contemporary art prints, is a stunning explosion of mind blowing art and inspiration on par with the punk sound and soul. ~ Sugar Press Art
