The Beast Within: Art By Pushead, Shepard Fairey, Mars-1
- Words: Fred Miketa
From underground art aficionado to corporate creative consultant, Jamie O’Shea has also earned his wings as a curator, acting as editor of art mag Juxtapoz and helping rebrand legendary names like The Beatles and ZZ Top (whose merch he recently had Pushead design). Now, O’Shea is stepping up his game by curating The Beast Within, a Halloween art exhibition featuring the spookiest work from over 60 artists including Shepard Fairey, Mars-1, Doze Green, Phil Frost, and more.
Set to open at New York’s Showroom Gallery on October 31, this special group exhibition draws from all corners of the underground art sphere, from post-graffiti caricature to psychedelic graphic design to fine art. Prior to opening to the general public, The Beast Within will be unveiled as an exclusive, invite-only showcase on October 30 and will be hosted by the skateboard-toting MC Lupe Fiasco. The East Village may never seem as haunted as it will that night.
