STEVE OLSON: INSIDE OUT 

Saturday October 27th, 2012 – Saturday December 1st, 2012  

OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY, October 27th, 7 to 10 PM
 

 

West Hollywood, October 27th - Hadid Gallery presents INSIDE OUT, an exhibition bySteve Olson.

 

Hadid Gallery will soon highlight artist Steve Olson. Olson became well known as a pro skateboarder in the 70’s and 80’s and established himself as a character in the L.A. and San Francisco Punk Rock scene. 

With this new collection Olson is bringing in Post Modern work that embeds narrative themes: capitalism, pop culture, social decadence and modern platitudes all with his drive of primal punk style! 

Olson’s work is best described in his own words: 

 

“My Art gives contemporary art a juvenile delinquent phase. It’s self-made style icons gleefully trashed conventions of beauty and society while pick pocketing from the coolest underground styles and believes of the previous centuries…”

– Steve Olson

 

A collaboration of tightly strung imagery, layered texture, decomposed material and a distracting relationship of art, language, and his person tale behind his work gives it a cultural relevance that is extremely current.  Hadid Gallery is pleased to be showing Steve Olson's show Inside Out, not just an art show but an experience.
