DUET- Jean Jullien & Jean André @ HVW8 Gallery

HVW8 Gallery, Almost Skateboards and Cliché Skateboards present DUET, a celebration of art and skateboarding featuring the work of internationally renowned French artists Jean Jullien and Jean André. The opening reception for the exhibition is on Thursday July 7th.
In addition to new original works from each artist, the show will feature a special showing of limited edition skate decks along with other limited items. Only 50 of each limited edition deck will be made.

Jean Jullien is a French graphic artist whose tongue-in-cheek works often have the ability to capture the imagination while making a poignant observation about the subject matter in question. His comical style often captures reflections on everyday life or current events and pokes fun at the mundane, but at the same time is provocative enough to elicit a profound reaction in the viewer.

Jean André is a French artist that often uses the female form and erotic imagery as the focus of his work. His “gentleman art” can often be cited as both pulp and satire that draws on influences from Matisse and Gainsbourg to Drake and 80’s eroticism.

HVW8 Gallery was founded in 2006 with the goal of supporting contemporary art and avant-garde graphic design, and has featured past solo exhibitions with both Jean André and Jean Jullien.

HVW8 Gallery— Tyler Gibney on Art & Politics



Listen to the Interview — Tyler Gibney of HVW8

To not stand for something means you’ll fall for anything. HVW8 Gallery co-founder Tyler Gibney has never been content on the sidelines. Despite the inability to vote as a Canadian citizen, Gibney put his artistic stake in the ground for the 2016 Presidential Election. The global influence of the United States is an important part of the world’s fabric. To be apathetic and not challenge the world around us is a great disservice according to Gibney. The HVW8 story is not focused so much on the candidate they support. It’s about the very decision to pick a side and to tell a story through art in the divisive world of politics.
