New “Working Class” Trailer

Working Class is a feature documentary loosely based on Charles Dickens book “A tale of two cities.” With San Francisco artist Mike Giant, and San Diego artist Mike Maxwell discussing themes found in Dickens 1859 novel that are just as relevant today. Religion, War, Family, History, and Art are chapters that tell the tale of the artists, the cities they live in and how history works in cycles. The two Mikes have been allies in underground art for over a decade and have gained respect for creating sharply drawn characters inspired by the working class.

Jeremy x Mike x Aesop x Bryan

Thanks to Joshua Liner Gallery and Jeremy Fish for the video!

Also featured: Mike Giant, Aesop Rock and Bryan Coons.

JL Gallery writes… “With its graphic style of bold lines, bizarro characters, and cartoon colors, Jeremy Fish’s art naturally lends itself to storytelling. In an unabashed celebration of this folk art form, Listen and Learn puts stories and storytellers front and center as Fish demonstrates the enduring appeal of storytelling in popular culture. The exhibition features assorted tales from a wide swath of contemporary life—including from artists, skateboarders, rappers, athletes, a stripper, a cop, and a historian—which Fish has reinterpreted in lovingly realized painted works. Rendered in acrylic on hand-cut wood panels, these thirty “story paintings” are accompanied by audio recordings of the source tales recounted by the original storytellers, available to gallery visitors on MP3 players and headphones mounted next to each work. For this impressive project, Fish gathered a selection of friends and acquaintances whose rich lives have engendered no end of interesting tales. Stories from the likes of Snoop Dogg, Aesop Rock, Ron English, Mike Giant, El-P, Mars-1 are just a few of the 30 stories included in the show. See Fish’s complete story this month at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC.”
