Tim ArmstrongTim Armstrong (Rancid, Transplants) is putting on his first ever solo art show in conjunction with the Subliminal Projects Gallery, founded by Shepard Fairey and Blaze Blouin. The show will feature important figures in Armstrong’s life, tools of his trade, album covers amongst others. They will be presented across a number of mediums selected by Armstrong and Fairey. Both have also commented on the upcoming show:

Shepard Fairey: “Tim Armstrong’s art has a visceral lyricism and immediacy that screams “if you feel it in your guts…express it with your hands!” The D.I.Y. punk ethos of honesty and emphasis on raw instinct that is so integral to Tim’s music is clearly evident in his tremendous body of gestural and poetic visual art. I was amazed by the quality and diversity within Tim’s “Tim Timebomb” project for which he created a song and piece of art each day for a year. If Tim’s drive and proliferation in multiple mediums don’t inspire you to get off your ass, nothing will!” 

Tim Armstrong: “The first time I heard of Shepard was back in 1991 at my punk house in the East Bay, when I saw his stickers on our wall, and I’ve been a fan ever since. It’s an honor to be working with him and Subliminal on this art show. As long as I can remember, I have drawn or painted pictures. I’m looking forward to sharing it with everyone.” 

The show will run from  January 24 – February 22, 2014 and will feature a performance from Tim Timebomb and Friends on opening night.
