MMXX Anno Domini 20th Anniversary Exhibition

Shepard Fairey / Obey Giant August 2000 Anno Domini

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 dates: November 6–December 12, 2020.

Travis resides in the Midwest where he was born and raised. Having a religious upbringing opened his perspective to the interaction with ideas greater than and/or within oneself. The creative process is an act of opening doorways and manifesting these ideas through symbol and metaphor. Similar to alchemy, Travis uses printmaking as a meditative procedure of transforming the mundane into a higher state.

Jennifer Caviola _ Separated Into Parts

Jennifer Caviola (b. 1979, U.S.)
Separated Into Parts
acrylic on wood panel, 18" x 18", 2020

Jennifer Caviola (aka Cake) had a solo exhibition entitled The Bride Series in September 2014 Anno Domini.

About the Artist
With an earnest commitment to contribute to the conversation of universal recovery from generational trauma, Caviola’s work seeks to explore the role of painting as facilitator of ancestral clearing.  

Caviola uses portraiture as a vehicle for delivery and as means of recording elusive states of existence that can sometimes get lost in passing, with the goal of each painting to have had complete transference onto the material of wood panel through acrylic paint via brushwork. The act of painting becomes a salve, and once completed, the resulted portrait exists with autonomy, and with that the promising possibility for a private exchange with the person who encounters it. 

Jennifer Caviola received her BFA in Painting from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York in 2002 and her MFA from Parsons in New York City in 2007. She has had solo shows in New York City, Brooklyn, and California and has participated in group shows throughout the United States, Europe and the Middle East. She has been featured in publications such as Vogue, The Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Complex Magazine, Papermag, Juxtapoz and High Fructose.

Denis Korkh (b. 1986, Ukraine)
Heads of Kings scattered across sand. Sun is crazy. And then there is that hole. That hole I used to love explaining. That hole from which all heads are birthed. That hole in THE theory of everything.
acrylic on canvas, 36" x 36", 2020

About the Artist
I try to position myself so as to have _____ find me, possess me, and to create through me. It's always feeding time but I don't always come around. More often now than before anyways. I know now there is a philosophy that lays it all out but I only recently put the heart and the pen to work. What can be written down - I now bother to find it. I draw a map. It's a kind of ritual of a reverse hunt. Makes sense? And for all the explaining I can muster, I just can't bring you to it. But I hope the side-effects.. the carnage in its wake is like a little gift you can take into your homes.

MonkeyBird _ Visionnaire

MonkeyBird (est. 2010, France)
gandmade stencil, spray paint, acrylic on oak wood, 46" x 36", 2019

MonkeyBird's debut U.S. solo exhibition was Sediments in November 2019 at Anno Domini.

About tthe Artists
MonkeyBird is the collaboration of two French artists, who have chosen to transcribe social themes into mural fables, through the representation of totem animals with elaborate symbolism. 

The bird is used as the personification of the human soul from which the notions of freedom, escape and mind games derive. The monkey refers to the primitive human condition and to the means implemented to resist our own nature. It therefore echoes the principles of architecture and social apparatus. MonkeyBird encourage humans to find the right balance between material obsessions and fantasies of freedom in order to build themselves as a social animal. Their inspiration is mainly drawn from sacred or lyrical works such as illuminations, stained glass windows, architectural ornamentation but also fantastic illustrations from the "Arts and Crafts" period or Japanese prints. 

The two artists began to work in the streets before moving to the walls of museums and institutions. However, they do not abandon their first place of expression and multiply the techniques and visual experiences depending on the space selected: stencils, engravings, linocuts, research into subtractions of the material, drawings, cutouts or canvas posters. glass. Artists with striking graphic originality, they feed the international urban landscape with the poetry of their works.

Poesia _ Reinterpretation of Carravaggio's Depositio

Poesia (b. 1975, U.S.)
Reinterpretation of Carravaggio's Depositio
Reclaimed colorplate, acrylic, enamel, 15" x 12", 2020

Poesia's debut U.S. solo exhibition was More Force Than Judgement in September 2012 at Anno Domini. A.D. also hosted the Graffuturism 6-Year Anniversary Group Exhibit curated by Poesia in May 2016.

About the Artist
Ever since I can remember I have always written my name, whether it was on walls or a piece of paper scribbling it over and over again the same letters “Poesia” have been scribbled 10’s of thousands of times. 25 years later my work still references this repetitive act of mark making. Graffiti was my introduction to art and remains a key inspiration. My artwork references my involvement painting graffiti as an adolescent and as an adult as well as graffiti’s temporary nature as a medium. Painting public art has allowed me to utilize my experience to create larger work who’s impact seems more immediate, even if impermanent. Being influenced by the do it yourself nature of painting in the streets I have incorporated this into my studio work as well. The act of painting remains an important aspect of my oeuvre, as much as the idea of leaving a physical mark behind. Not being a formerly trained artist I have instead relied upon my knowledge and personal experiences painting in public throughout the years to build on. Utilizing new mediums and techniques such as Spray paint have allowed me to utilize traits learned over the years. The need to paint quick and fast is a physical aspect of my work that I embrace.

The act of painting is as much as an influence as graffiti has been on me personally. I choose to produce in multiple series of works. These range from my Old Master series, collage, to gestural and geometric abstract paintings. I also take this approach when painting on walls with different series of work ranging from letter based, to abstract non representational murals. This approach allows me to expand ideas not with one painting or wall at a time, instead I can create large bodies of work pushing through ideas. I paint in a range of mediums and scale utilizing multiple mediums ranging from large scale Insitu installations, Murals and studio work. Insitu (Site Specific) installations have become a new direction for me, these abandoned areas and temporary murals have allowed me to further my experimentation in graffiti and the ephemeral nature of our art form. Placing or removing material from these locations is a newer medium that I am exploring through collage, photography and sculpture.

I have shown internationally in cities including. Milan, Hawaii, Glasgow, London, Paris, San Jose, Miami, Oakland, Monaco, San Francisco, Portland and Los Angeles. I have also traveled internationally painting murals or installations in cities such as Barcelona, Brighton, Glasgow, Miami, Los Angeles, Miami, London, Paris, Cannes, San Francisco, Perpignon, Oakland, Tijuana, Hawaii, and New York.

I am also the founder of the website that has led to the Graffuturist group or Graffuturism Movement. Graffuturism was founded in 2010 and has now exhibited as a group in 6 major cities around the world including Paris, Los Angeles, London, Glasgow, Miami and San Jose. With a group consisting of some of today’s top contemporary painters Graffuturism has established itself as an emerging movement in today’s Art scene. Graffuturism as a group was named #5 on the list of most important artists of 2012 by Complex magazine.

Dale Marshall DvNM _ Untilted

Dale Marshall DvNM (b. 1974, U.K.)
hand finished giclée print A/P on Hahnemuhle 310gsm German paper, 11.5" x 16.5", 2020

Dale Marshall has had two solo exhibitions with Anno Domini including his U.S. debut solo exhibition The California State Institution in April 2012 and Orbital—cut up and rewired in October 2015.

About the Artist
Marshall is a contemporary fine art painter currently residing in Bristol England with spells of residency in Wales and most recently Ireland. A graduate of one of California’s finest art schools, California State University Long Beach (CSULB), and of Coventry University he has had numerous successful solo exhibitions in London and the USA, in particular his first major solo exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum Walls with Wounds (February-May) in 2014.

Marshall’s career began over twenty-five years ago as a precocious young graffiti artist on the streets of Bath and Bristol. Outside on brick and concrete walls, Marshall would paint his own rendition of poetry which challenged the graffiti stereotype under the moniker ‘VERMIN’ with bold biographical statements . To Marshall, the walls were sacred. They recorded his own personal journey and the words he wrote on them had power and enduring meaning. Marshall enjoyed this form of expressive freedom and youthful rebellion but it ultimately brought upon him the gritty consequences of street culture, which for Marshall led to drug use and psychotic episodes.

In 1999 he was sectioned in one of Britain’s oldest asylums commonly known as the Cornwall County (Lunatic) Asylum. He suffered clinical depression for another seven years until he self discharged from antipsychotic medication.

The walls from the street have now been replaced by inspiration of the crumbling walls of his former Victorian workhouse studio in rural Wales, mixed with his own biographical story and journey from the streets to 'post graffiti' on canvas. These walls and this building not only have inspired but have become an intrinsic part of his multimedia work and it is no coincidence that the building Marshall chose to work in has a strikingly similar environment to the institution in which he was forced to reside in Cornwall. Marshall continues to use text and his moniker from his graffiti days to form the body of all his paintings. The works are multi layered and heavily textured, utilising a variety of mediums and methods with a strong emphasis on the paint process and mark making. Dale's aims are to give the viewer a window to his soul and tormented past, a form of self portraiture where the graffiti is now portrayed in the form of a wound that is the starting point to create memorable tension where pain meets perfection and light just about overshadows darkness to create these compelling original works.

Marshall is proud to challenge the stigma about mental health by sharing and documenting his own personal experience of mental illness through his painting. He draws on past memories and emotions, each painting standing as a testament that with attention and nurturing cracks and chaos can be transformed into beauty and peace.

To view Marshall’s work one can perceive the pain and chaos the young artist experienced and yet it is this exact pain and chaos the artist now embraces.

Each canvas is an attempt to reflect a balance of the frightening and the beautiful through instinctive mark making.

Dale Marshall has had numerous successful solo exhibitions in London and the USA as well as outside walls around the world. His works are held in private and public collections worldwide.

Yescka _ Frida Punk

Yescka (b. 1984, Mexico)
Frida Punk
stencil, acrylic on canvas, 47” x 39”

Yescka was a featured artist in Asamblea de Artistas Revolucionarios de Oaxaca (ASARO Collective) group exhibition in August 2017 Anno Domini.

About the Artist
In 1998, at the age of 15, Yescka began to paint graffiti on the streets of the city of Oaxaca, Mexico, hence his passion for Art and entered the School of Fine Arts of the Autonomous University Benito Juárez.

His interest in taking art to the streets is clear, in 2006 when a very large political-social movement arises in Oaxaca from which Yescka takes up street art to express the social disagreement that exists in Oaxaca.

In the same year, Yescka unites with various artists who converge and decide to form one of the most prominent groups in Oaxaca, ASARO (Assembly of Revolutionary Artists of Oaxaca), in order to make an art more committed to society in which their feelings and disagreement are reflected.

Most of Yescka's art is exposed in the streets, since for the urban artist it is very important to bring art to open spaces where the public is much wider and there is a more direct communication with the viewer. For the Artist, art is a tool which helps us to communicate, because for him it is the oldest language that has worked to generate realities that promote development, empathy, development and human sensitivity.

YESCKA has collaborated with institutions such as the UN and was the artist interviewed by Antony Bourdain during his visit to Mexico in 2014 for his CNN program “Parts Unknown”. He has participated in exhibitions and made interventions in different parts of the world such as Germany, Spain, USA, Sweden, Switzerland, France, UK, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, and Cuba.

Various & Gould (Germany)
screen-print, collage, acrylic and aerosol on 6 wood panels, UV protection varnish, 29" x 32", 2020

Various & Gould exhibited with Anno Domini with the solo show "Permanently Improvised" in April, 2016.

About the Artist
The Berlin based artist duo Various & Gould works in close collaboration since 2005. Various & Gould are known for constantly reinventing themselves. Their creation is based on the simple but striking formula 1+1=3. Whilst methods of screen-printing and collage are their speciality, their art can also emerge in a public performance or an installation as they like crossing borders and do not stick to a certain medium. Mutual passions including their love of paper, enthusiasm for accidental beauty in everyday life and art in urban space form the core of their artistic practice.

Various & Gould often deal with socially prominent themes such as work, migration, gender, death, religion or the financial crisis in a playful, intuitive manner.

Sergej Vutuc _ Original Photos

Sergej Vutuc (Bosnia)

Sergei Vutuc had a solo exhibition and sound art performance entitled Intimations of Substantiality Beneath in February 2018.

About the Artist
Since the mid 1980s Vutuc’s work has been about observing the (over)development of modern society and the privatization of public space; nature being conquered by concrete, concrete being conquered by the subversive act of skating. The work is based in nomadic movement through space and time, an endless sense of mobility, existence in between cities, countries, borders, worlds etc. Contested spaces, such as Fukushima, Detroit, Chernobyl, Israel and Palestine–strong symbols of ongoing human error and conflict, mistakes and misdirections in socioeconomic development.

Then there is the documentation of this ever-shifting landscape (physical and symbolic) through analog photography, publishing zines, mounting exhibitions, making music, drawing on walls, constant collaboration (as the essence of human creative exchange) and generally non-stop action and movement; fragmenting, altering, rearranging reality over and over, as necessary.

But one must also follow the natural human urge to expand one’s consciousness, to live in parallels, through imagination and it is here that Vutuc makes his departure to embark on a new series of work entitled Intimations of Substantiality Beneath. This exhibition begins a journey between exploring the landscape of flesh and passing moments on the way to somewhere; held in between, chosen by moment, by light, and by the energy drawn on the moment. It’s a melting point of Vutuc’s two latest publications: “there was something on the fence” and “jenseits von innen” (“beyond inside)”.

Vutuc sees the “scratching on the surface of blurry dream and fantasy as the only existing reality based on self creation.” The analog photo process allows for altering and scratching the film; another manipulation and questioning of (documented) reality. Adding to his poetic imagery music and sound allows an instant connection with the viewer, and reaction from an audience. All of this combined unifies the space of the work and allows a complete transformative experience. The energy created in this visual/soundscape confronts the viewer, challenging them to (re)see the strength and fragility of human relationships, family, tradition, intimacy, personal and global conflict. Vutuc’s work functions to shift our perception of reality, humanity, and society in general.

Vutuc currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Zero Cents (b.1986), U.S.)
Sodom and Gomorrah
watercolor and ink on paper, 27.5" x 21.75", 2020

Zero Cents has had two solo exhibitions with Anno Domini: A Human Race in August, 2014 and A Planetary Profile in September 2017.

About the Artist
Zero Cents is an American-born, Earth based artist living and working around the globe. For the past 15 years the artist has been working both in studio and on the streets, by painting murals and creating site specific installations. The artist's work deals with observations on people surrounding him; the lovers and fighters, party-ers, the thinkers, the dancers and the damned.

Through his work, the artist attempts to document the energy the human race creates, the wisdom, morals, values or lack of them that they pass on. While conducting this research, he communicates the subjects’ movement and energy, on a variety of surfaces-from found wood to city walls, using various mediums and techniques without judgment, using these components as a metaphor for forgiveness, hoping to show the human race as it is, in the most authentic and honest way he feels possible.

Bill Dunlap _ Pattern Series

Bill Dunlap (U.S.)
Black Pattern 1, Black Pattern 2, Gold Pattern 1 Gold Pattern 2
acrylic on wood panel, 8" x 8" each.
$80 each / $300 for set of all four

Bill Dunlap had a solo exhibition I Stand for Sacrifice in February 2014 Anno Domini.

About the Artist
It was San Francisco. Now it’s NYC and Western Maryland. It used to be a kind of cartoony violence, then darkly realistic portraits and nudes, then landscapes and city scenes, then text pieces and geometric abstraction. Right now it’s full-on painterly abstraction. Love and mystery is in the paint.
