MMXX Anno Domini 20th Anniversary Exhibition (First Decade)

MMXX A.D. 20th Anniversary Exhibition

Anno Domini // the second coming of Art & Design celebrates 20 years of street art, subculture, and art as activism exhibitions by visionary artists at the forefront of our current urban contemporary art movement.

Our curatorial vision was one of independence and rebellion and the art work that moves us the most comes from those same principles although in extremely diverse forms of it. Painters, illustrators, tattoo artists, woodcarvers, low-rider bike makers, sign painters, tech artists, spoken word poets, performance artists, live loopers and musicians make up our family tree and legacy. The thread that binds us all is our hope that those that experience the work by these artists will find a truth and beauty in these images & performances of not only what is, but perhaps more importantly, what can be.

We are truly honored to have worked with these artists and the hyper-local to global community of admirers and collectors we've met along the way. We look forward to the next 20 years with you all.

The "First Decade" exhibition dates: September 18–October 17, 2020.

(The "Second Decade" exhibition will open first Friday November 6, 2020).

Dimitri Drjuchin _ Peace Keeper

Dimitri Drjuchin (b. 1980, Russia)
Peace Keeper
acrylic, pen, and resin on wood. 9" x 12"

Dimitri Drjuchin has had two solo exhibitions with Anno Domini: Cloud Empire in April 2010, and The Melting Kingdom in August 2011.

About the Artist
Dima Drjuchin is an artist/musician who was born in Moscow, but grew up making images and sounds in New York City. Wielding the culmination of human potential wrought from the depths of the bicameral mind, Drjuchin’s art is a hyperdimensional machine that invokes creatures who come bounding forward with affection and recklessness. These are not the Icons of the Byzantine Church—they are the new Incarnated Symbols of the Multiverse. Drjuchin allows us a glimpse into a fractulated moment of cultural hypnagogic modality and an opportunity to alter our perspectives of reality.

Megan Diddie _ pollen settles on her face under the tree of heaven

Megan Diddie (b. 1985, U.S.)
pollen settles on her face under the tree of heaven
Note about the medium:
This colored pencil drawing was done on handmade paper. I worked at Fresh Press Paper Laboratory in Champaign-Urbana for a little over two years making paper with different agricultural materials. The paper for this drawing was made with sunflowers I grew in my yard as well as recycled black cotton paper. I called this batch of paper Black Sunflower. This piece is part of a series about spring allergies and the plants that grow along the sidewalks and roadsides in Chicago.
12" x 9"

Megan Diddie has had two solo exhibitions at Anno Domini; April 2009, and November 2013. Diddie was also featured in the international four person exhibition "Glimmer" in April 2011.

She aims to capture the idea that in hope there is both complexity and darkness; which for her inspires a more nuanced and honest examination of the human world.

Addam Yekutieli Know Hope _ Regression

Addam Yekutieli aka Know Hope (b. 1986, U.S.)
mixed media, 13" x 10.75, 2017
Addam Yekutieli aka Know Hope debut solo exhibition and site specific installation Temporary Residence at Anno Domini in October 2008 Anno Domini.

About the Artist
Addam Yekutieli aka Know Hope
Over the past decade, Addam Yekutieli (pseudonym Know Hope) has developed a visual iconography and language used to mirror real-life situations and observations, and document the notion of a collective human struggle. 

By creating parallels between political situations and emotional conditions, there is an attempt to perceive the political process and dialogue as an emotional mechanism, therefore making it a process that can be understood and participated in intuitively and not solely intellectually. 

These processes take place both indoors and outdoors, in the form of site-specific installations, murals and assemblages, combining ready-made materials, mixed media pieces, photographs and text. 

By placing these works in public spaces, Yekutieli aims to make the separation between the emotional and political non-existent, and allow the viewers to see themselves in the larger context of their surroundings simply by recognizing each other. 

Yekutieli lives and works in Tel Aviv.

Navin Norling _ Goldie _ Sneaker Toss

Navin June Norling (b.1970, U.S.)
Goldie, 2020 (sneaker toss)
spray paint, gold leaf, Nike Air Jordan Size 14

Navin Norling's west coast gallery debut was Bootleg Baby solo exhibition May 2006 at Anno Domini.

About the Artist
My work is connected to both urban and rural sensibilities. It examines classic Americana imagery against an urban backdrop of found materials to confront and comment upon popular culture and its signifiers, sayings, folklore and materialism. I was raised in suburban Northern California but spent summers on my grandfather's farm in California's central valley. My art is infused with the rugged relics of that rural setting. Nothing on the farm ever went to waste; all was recycled and re-used. The idea of finding alternative use in something abandoned and infusing it with these inspirations is an integral part of my work.

I have lived in New York City since the early 1990s. My art is a dynamic dialogue between modern pop-based imagery, urban graffiti inspired color palettes, found objects covered in urban grit and the richness of rural America. The result is an anthology of provocative sculptural objects and paintings that examines the rich American cultural landscape using humor and irony.

The act of processing city life and all of its textures and colors informs my work. The structures of the city, tattered and strewn with graffiti and urban detritus, begin to tell the viewer of the lives being lived inside the city’s walls. As an urban artist, all that is around me inspires me. I salvage through trash bins to recover materials as varied as windowpanes and wheelchairs. I create work that is made from the remnants of lives once lived and people gone before me. The images are significant in my personal as well as in our collective American history for their representation of and commentary on issues of power, class, geography, capitalism and inequality.

Edgar Saner Flores _ breathe

Saner (b. 1981, Mexico)
medium: acrylic and colored pencil on cotton paper, 17" x 17"
$ 1900.

Saner's debut gallery exhibition was confesiones de una mascara in April 2009 at Anno Domini.

About the Artist
Edgar "SANER" Flores, contemporary artist, painter, illustrator and graphic designer, was born in Mexico City in 1981, son of Oaxacan mother and Hidalguense father, the third child of 5 siblings. From an early age, he was interested in drawing and caricature, developing his first strokes at the age of 3 years and continuing into graffiti as a teenager, later graduating as Bachelor of Graphic Design at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, FES Acatlán.

As a child he grew up in the State of Mexico and vacationed surrounded by his mother's family in the city of Matias Romero Oaxaca, it was then that he began to be interested in Mexican culture and tradition, especially masks. Ever since the last year of his degree and up to 5 years after he was dedicated to designing and advertising, later to fully engage in the graphic arts, developing initially with grafitti and specializing in mural painting and easel painting; with Saner now converting from a pseudonym to his artistic signature.

The work of Saner is well known for representing situations of everyday life, adapted to their hermeneutical language, forming both a political and social discourse, through characters with pre-Hispanic reminiscences and various paradoxes that create profound reflections on the essence and connection with the inside.

Masks are the main element in the work of Saner, influenced by the Mexican folklore with characters and animals such as jaguars, coyotes, gods and skulls; referring to the emotions that represents each character showing its true face and reflecting the mysticism of Mexican culture.

Saner is one of the most representative contemporary artists of the century for Mexico and the world. ~ Lizbeth Hidalgo V.

Please inquire for pricing.

Lucien Shapiro's debut gallery exhibition was 1 WORLD let the world begin in February 2005 at Anno Domini.

About the Artist
Lucien Shapiro was born in 1979 in Santa Rosa, CA. He attended San Francisco Academy of Art University and received a BFA in 2003. Since then, he’s developed multiple practices, held residencies all over the country, and presented his work at solo exhibitions. The underlying and concurrent theme of Shapiro’s work revolves around painstaking repetition, meticulous attention to craft, and the transformation of everyday objects. He composes elaborately constructed masks and ornately armored weaponry and vessels, which examine a relationship between modern waste and memories of ancient cultural artifacts. Practices and customs from the past are brought back to light through his revival of discarded materials, transformed into objects analogous with self-protection. A laborious craft and meditative consumption of time transforms forgotten objects into nostalgically interesting and beautiful relics that compel viewers to reevaluate what our everyday possessions represent and mean to us. In an age of consumption, waste, addiction, and destruction, Shapiro’s work is vitally needed and relevant. Employing the theories of natural growth such as branches, root systems, and crystals, his work continues circling around to similar conclusions: that the end result is the same no matter what the work is; it always leads to personal growth and self-realization.

AJ Fosik _ Lupine Tropion Three

AJ Fosik (b. 1975., U.S.)
Lupine Tropion Three
wood, paint & nails, 18"w x 18"t x 18"d, 2019

Fosik's debut gallery exhibition was RotGut at Anno Domini in September 2001. Fosik returned to A.D. in November 2004 with Parts and Labor exhibition with KGBE, and Monster Project.

About the Artist
AJ Fosik is an American artist who creates intricate, vividly colored three-dimensional pieces that reference folk art, taxidermy, and cultural rituals. Using hundreds of pieces of wood and found materials, he creates figurative and intricately designed three-dimensional works. His animal subjects and creatures are built using a complex assemblage of hand cut and varnished wood, painted in bright hues and layered into lattice patterns to create furry or feathered texture. Sharp teeth, claws and eyes emerge when the creatures are complete - some are constructed as freestanding sculptures while others are wall-mounted to a frame, referencing taxidermy practices.

Ideas of empathy and synthesis are a common duality in the work, whereby the anthropomorphized figures communicate the basic human condition. Totems and fetishes, as well as the “random, chaotic and arbitrary nature of existence,” fascinate Fosik; though less overt, the animals he creates represent a plethora of icons from various theologies, giving them the subversiveness of a cast of fictional, anti-religious gods. The artist delights in the endless interpretations the works have inspired in his viewers.

AJ Fosik has exhibited his works in numerous galleries throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.

Emek _ Rage Against the Machine

Emek (b. 1970, Israel)
Rage Against the Machine War Machine
screenprint limited edition, 1996

Emek Silkscreened Rock Aaarght! solo exhibition at Anno Domini in August 2000.

About the Artist
Emek graduated with a Major in Art, and a Minor in Unemployment. His first poster commission was done immediately after the L.A. riots/uprising of 1992, for a unity rally and concert held on Martin Luther King Day. “On scratchboard, I depicted an image of Martin Luther King Jr., rising above a concert crowd. No copies of this poster remain, but it does hold special meaning for me as the seed of my career”.

In Emek’s posters, psychedelic ‘60s imagery collides with ‘90s post-industrial iconography. To this collision of the organic vs. the mechanical worlds he adds humor, social commentary and fantasy. Even in the smallest details there are messages. All of Emek’s artwork is originally hand-drawn and then hand- silkscreened for each actual concert or event, usually in limited editions.

So far, his unique visual style has graced music posters on a diverse musical spectrum, from Blues legend B.B. King to the Beastie Boys. He has painted album covers for Neil Young and Pearl Jam as well as for many punk and alternative bands. He was invited to exhibit at the opening of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame “History of Rock Posters” exhibition and has been featured in national and international magazines. As you read this, his work is permanently displayed in Hard Rock Cafes worldwide and shown in galleries across the United States, Berlin, London and Tokyo. In December 2007, Billboard named the top 25 rock posters of all time. EMEK garnered 3 spots on the list, the most of any single artist. In 2016, Emeks' Art swept the Pollstar Poster of the Year Awards being awarded first, second and third places.

Sam3 _ Cats in the Garden

Sam3 (b. 1980, Spain)
Cats in the Garden
cyanotype on 300gr watercolor paper, 1/1 edition.

Sam3 debut gallery exhibition was in September 2009 Anno Domini with Exsitu Insitu. All the paintings on canvas and the accompanying animation in the exhibit were created on-site at the gallery in the 10 days leading up to his opening night.

About the Artist
Sam3 is known for creating massive scale silhouettes in urban spaces. He refers to his dramatic black and white works as “shadows.” The absence of defining details in his paintings allows for him to not only work quickly, but also makes the message more accessible. His seemingly simple style is dense with profundity; the work is a reflection of the human condition as viewed through the experience of his global travels.

Sam started drawing and painting at an early age. His first drawing classes were from a monk at the monastery near his home. When he was 13 he was fascinated with the graffiti culture in his small town and stole spraypaint from local shopkeepers (he was caught by police the first time he went out to write his moniker “BREAK.”) The following years were spent trading photos and zines with other graffiti artists through the mail.

After graduating with a fine arts degree from a Granada university, he worked as waiter, a roadie, an illustrator in Barcelona, and then in animation in Madrid for a year before he “slammed the door on alienation” and abandoned the path of a corporate future. In 2006, Sam made a vow to dedicate his life to his art and has since created murals all across the globe leaving metaphorical images that are to be deciphered and “owned” by the community.

Memories of that large smelly animal and the delicious dinner he became have stayed with Miel through her adult life, while she studied metalsmithing at California College of Art and Craft in Oakland and the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Her metalwork incorporates the animal figure and traditional ornamental devices to interpret the ways in which we humans manipulate our environment and the creatures in it to suit our needs. In 2019 she participated in the GLEAN artist residency at the Portland Metro Transfer station, collecting discarded plastics and making chased copper molds to recycle the plastic into ornamental scrollwork animals for A Herd, A Plague, A Murmuration. When not working on art or jewelry, she makes stop-motion puppet armatures at Shadowmachine animation studio.

Gilbert1 _ Assemblages

Gilbert1 (b. 1980, France)

Assemblage #12 by Gilbert1
paper, wood, spray paint, silkscreen on cardboard, 11" x 8"

Silkprint by Gilbert1
print on 300g paper, numbered edition of 50, 9.75" x 4.5"

Assemblage #13 by Gilbert1
paper, wood, spray paint, silkscreen on cardboard, 11" x 8"

Gilbert1 has participated in several group exhibitions at Anno Domini including the international group show Graffuturism 6-year Anniversary Exhibit in May 2016.

About the Artist
Coming from the graffiti scene (which he started in the early 2000s), he rolls out his art from wall to web, from photography to installations, from sculpture to painting. This remarkable, multidisciplinary self-taught artist has found how to go beyond reality that affects him and a society he cannot understand, by using all tools and mastering all techniques. His fragile looking works depict the torments inside, while his source materials betray their violence. Yet his vivid colours convey hope.

While all seems to be chaos, Gilbert1 meticulously rebuilds, repaints and fixes matter and materials. He reinvents and uses the objects that riddle his quest, while colouring, installing and positioning them. He turns them into frail sculptures, monumental paintings or obvious installations (like that produced in 2012 for the Bains Douche artistic residence in Paris).

He claims to be in love with Mathieu’s gestures and influenced by the work of Miro, Tapies and Picasso. He is a child of Raw Art, attached to « graffuturism », Gaudi’s architecture and the works of Georges Rousse. Yet Gilbert1 is above all inspired by the places he visits (where he still paints and holds artistic residence) and by the history that marks the man and his time. By the architecture he explores and the streets he contemplates. He turns his colours into a tool. He does not fill in or hide, he reveals. Keenly attached to the real-life experience of his finds, he extracts their essence, diverts their meaning and gives them new life.

He has exhibited and painted in Paris, Lyon, St Etienne, Marseille, Stuttgart, Rome, Barcelona, New York, San Jose, Los Angeles, San Francisco or even Berlin. He now lives in Nancy. ~Valériane Mondot

Paulo Nimer Pjota _ Untitled

Paulo Nimer Pjota (b. 1988 Brazil)
mixed media on raw canvas, 20" x 18", 2009 A.D.

Pjota's debut gallery exhibit in the U.S. was in August 2009 at Anno Domini.

About the Artist
Paulo Nimer Pjota was born in Sao Jose do Rio Preto, Brazil in 1988.. He studied at the University Center of Fine Arts of São Paulo earning his Bachelor of Visual Arts. He is an artist of many mediums and prefers to work on large surfaces.

Each canvas is treated as a sketchbook of sorts in where you find a collection of images with no particular placement but each image intentionally. Pjota suggests an open narrative in no particular order but the order in which the viewer's imagination takes. His work confronts the viewer with a string of juxtapositions. The archeological artifacts are compared with soda cans, still lifes overshadowed by war and popular culture meets what once was.

James Marshall aka DALEK
Space Monkey blah
acrylic on cardboard, 26" x 16", circa 1999

James Marshall / DALEK (b. 1968) exhibited with a solo exhibition in March 2001 Anno Domini.

About the Artist
Merging animation, Japanese pop art, and an urban aesthetic, James Marshall is best known for his Space Monkey character—a strange, vaguely humanoid mouse that he would depict in an array of bright colors and twisted circumstances, often wielding a butcher’s cleaver. Working under the name Dalek, Marshall expressed his ideas through the Space Monkey character until 2007, when he began working in a purely abstract style. He has always been engaged in skateboard and graffiti subcultures, and Marshall cites his two-year assistantship in the studio of controversial Japanese artist Takashi Murakami as a formative experience.

Marshall was born to a military family in New London, Connecticut and moved around a lot as a kid, finishing high school in Japan then living in Hawaii briefly before returning to the mainland.  The artist found his voice and identity in the subcultures of graffiti, punk rock and skateboarding. He earned a BA in Sociology and Anthropology from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1992 and acquired his BFA at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago in 1995.

First rendered on a wall in Connecticut in 1995, the Space Monkey that has become synonymous with his name grew and evolved from Marshall’s love for Japanese pop culture, the “vibe” of the punk scene, street art and cartoons. Marshall maintains that the Space Monkey is not a monkey at all, but a mouse—his concept of a human being lost in a growing sea of technology and convenience.  Space Monkey became Dalek’s alter ego, a medium through which he expressed his emotions, ideas and concerns.

David Choe _ Untitled

David Choe
spray paint, acrylic on wood, 40" x 24", 2006
Please inquire for price.

Street artist David Choe's first exhibition (outside of an ice cream shop and a hair salon) was in 2002 at Anno Domini. Choe returned to the gallery with solo exhibitions in 2003, and 2006 A.D.

About the Artist:
Long famous for his fine-art work which has garnered the respect, admiration and adulation of institutions, museums, high-profile collections and fans around the world, David Choe is just as competent in front of a camera as he is on a canvas.

Working in multiple forms of media with a deeply engaged audience in the hundreds of thousands, Choe is one of the few fine artists to ever successfully make the jump from the museum world to the media world, with his only two network appearances being the extremely successful and high profile shows Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (CNN) and VICE (HBO). On the former, Choe was a featured guest and on the latter Choe served as both host and interviewer for multiple episodes; both shows went on to win Emmys that year for Outstanding Informational Series, with each episode that featured Choe being the most watched and commented episodes of that program’s season

Previous to these two network appearances, Choe translated his visual prowess for multi-platinum album covers (Jay-Z & Linkin Park: Collision Course) into directing well-regarded music videos for Dan The Automator (Gorillaz, Deltron 3030) and other musical artists. In addition, Choe provided the voice for the lead character in the breakout Sundance Film Festival hit We Are The Strange (2007) and was an integral part in the beginning days of VICE Media Inc.’s transition from traditional print media into more engaging video work where he collaborated on and conceived of two of the company’s most popular Internet shows: The Vice Guide To Travel and Thumbs Up!, the latter of which he served as the writer, director and star. Additionally, Choe provided further essential involvement in the form of composing music and creating graphics, animations and art campaigns for all the shows he was involved with.

His popularity and personality are proven to draw audiences. In 2012, Choe was dubbed “the prince of all media” by Howard Stern after appearing on his show where he went on to become one of the year’s most popular new guests; while a documentary about his life (Dirty Hands) became the most attended film at the Los Angeles Film Festival the year it premiered and further garnered multiple sold-out showings at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.

From comics and books, to apparel and music, to films and television- everything Choe has been a part of has proven its success many times over. And just as Choe proved his commercial viability with his fine-art contributions to a diverse list of clients such as Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Sony Pictures, Fox Searchlight, Warner Brothers, CBS, Converse, Levi’s and Vanity Fair, he is once again proving his commercial viability as an immeasurable asset in other forms of media in front of the camera.

Michael Page _ Captain

Michael Page (b. 1979, U.S.)
acrylic and oil on canvas, 20" x 16"

Michael Page exhibited "Hope Leaves" solo exhibition at Anno Domini September 2007.

About the Artist:
Michael Page’s work offers the viewer an optic alternative to the visual reality of life, as we know it. The artist’s characters and organisms inhabit otherworldly realms that are vaguely familiar in their resemblance to our shared reality, but are ultimately their own cosmic manifestation. Narratives of worlds in crisis, such as a self-imposed environmental degradation and the decline of civilization play out across the canvas. His enigmatic imagery is rendered in a rich and colorful palette of swirling and flowing shapes and line that create dynamic movement. The resulting liveliness of the work assists in aiding the viewer’s suspension of disbelief when contemplating the fantastical realities of the artist’s imagination.

Michael Page was born in 1979 and he lives and works as a full-time artist in Dana Point, Ca. He has shown his work nationally and internationally throughout both Europe and the United States, including the cities of Reykjavik, Berlin, Bristol, Rome, Sweden and Montreal.

“I have a few different ways when approaching a new canvas. One way is, I start throwing colors and shapes down until I find a format that I like and want to work with. Another way is, I start with a general idea of what I want to paint and start sketching forms and shapes, until my idea is flowing. Another way is I combine both, forms I have sketched out and throwing colors all over the place.

My paintings are always changing, from month to month they go through very radical different ideas and concepts until I find one that sticks. I am not partial to anything I create, I feel that everything can be destroyed until the true beauty rises through.

MOMO _ Option 1

MOMO (b. 1974, U.S.)
Option 1
silkscreen print, acrylic on Arches 140 lb. watercolor paper, 19" x 13", 
embossed, numbered, & signed, 2016
This print is the Artist's Proof of the sold out print edition of 15.

MOMO exhibited at Anno Domini in 2010 with the solo exhibition "Better Than 2009".

About the Artist
MOMO is an American artist who began his experimental outdoor work in the late 90s, working with homemade tools and borrowed public space. Ten years of free ranging projects, centered around adapted masonry techniques, strategies based on collage, computer code, and seriality, came to form the basis of his visual language.

This language finds it's expression in paint, on commissioned walls and studio work from 2009 to the present day. Notable mural commissions include those from Facebook, Pepsi, the NFL, the World Trade Center, John Hancock Tower, Art Production Fund NY, European Capital of Culture, the NYC DOT, and Yohji Yamamoto's Y-3. However, self organized walls in Jamaica, Sicily, and Arizona (2013, 2016, 2018), painted at the artists expense, have been important in demonstrating innovative techniques for a general audience free of the usual commercial concerns.

In 2016 Maya Hayuk, MOMO, Swoon, and Faile inaugurated the new Millennium Iconoclast Museum of Art in Brussels, with installations on five floors. Solo shows the following year 2017 were held at Delimbo Gallery in Sevilla and Alice Gallery in Belgium, with an experimental group show of Mark Flood, Revok, Paul Kremer, and MOMO at Library Street Collective in Detroit.
