"One of the most identifiable artists we've worked with, Peter Gronquist, is back in the gallery next week with his new solo show, "The Evolution Will Be Fabulous." Forever growing and evolving, we're always excited to see what Peter will do next, and his new show definitely does not disappoint!
Gronquist is probably most well know for his designer weapons, which we featured in "The Revolution Will Be Fabulous" show in 2008.
The show was widely covered in the press and even featured on Kanye West's blog, resulting in a hand-delivered cease and desist letter. The weapons, a favorite amongst buyers in the entertainment industry, can be see at the Hard Rock Hotel and Angels and Kings in Chicago and Los Angeles.
Since 2008, Peter has left the designer labels behind, and has merged the worlds of gold-plated weapons and taxidermy.
Peter's new show, "The Evolution Will be Fabulous" features an entire show of embellished animal trophies, but even larger and more fabulous than any of his past work (check out the postcard image). BUT you'll have to wait for the show to open to see the new pieces, as we won't be previewing this show. It's going to be a surprise, so stay tuned!"

"'The Cans' is a three-print series created as companion pieces to Roger Gastman’s limited-edition book, The Tools of Criminal Mischief.
The 24-by-36-inch prints feature vintage spraypaint cans from Gastman’s collection, which was recently featured in MOCA’s Art in the Streets exhibition.
Gastman carefully selected the cans for each print, which includes coveted brands such as Krylon, Rustoleum and Red Devil as well as off-brands with colors such as Silver-Skate Aluminum and Baa Baa Black.
Featuring hard-to-find cans, vivid colors and vintage logos, “The Cans” is the perfect gift for any graffiti writer, art collector or graphic designer."

"For 35 days straight, Skinner and I shacked up together, cut off the outside world, gave two shits about what anyone wanted us to paint for a new collection of pieces, and laughed our way maniacally through mutual therapy as we may or may not had been committing career suicide. And it was the best 35 days of my life.
If you hadn't been following us and have no idea what "The Butcher Kings" show is, you can read a pretty good summary of the madness leading up to the event over on my TUMBLR page HERE.
"I was offended. After viewing Pardee and Skinner's "The Butcher Kings" I swallowed half a bottle of cough syrup and slammed my dick in a window repeatedly. I highly recommend seeing this exhibit while you can." - Adam Green, Director of HATCHET, FROZEN & HOLLISTON
So Now that the first step is over, and the show has opened at Gallery 1988 in LA, we want to thank everyone for blindly supporting our annoying weirdness throughout the process. For numerous reasons, Skinner and I had always intended to try a new approach in marketing our "Butcher Kings" show, but we didn't really know what that meant at first. As the paintings started to come together, so did our cabin fever, an endless supply of in-jokes, and a sickening amount of laughter and burritos. We realized early on that there wasn't going to be one, two, or even 10 pieces of art that would represent the whole collection of work visually, so instead we just decided to focus on the madness that was developing inside of us both with photos and videos (you can watch all 5 of the "Butcher King Tapes" HERE ) as our sleep schedule got worse and our stress levels heightened as we tried to reach our goal of 80 paintings in 5 weeks. We knew it was an odd way to promote an art show without ever showing any art at all, but thanks to a lot of our friends, fans, and some really supportive websites, we were able to spread our Mort-ness to quite a few avenues and we had a really really good opening. We got great coverage on Laughing Squid, the Nerdist, Slash Film, Complex magazine, Geek Tyrant, Daily Dujour, Spanky Stokes and more! So yah, thanks again for everyone's support. Here is a gigantic random collection of photos, videos and art from both the opening and some of the days leading up to it.
And some of the original paintings and drawing (as well as a 40 page book containing a lot of the paintings) are still available to purchase online through GALLERY 1988 BY CLICKING HERE. So make sure to check it out."
