Hold Up Art opens “Subversive Holiday,” the first solo exhibition for the prolific Wheat Paste artist Septerhed on August 6, 2011.

Known for his plurality of designs and characters, Septerhed has earned a respected place in the Street Art circles of Los Angeles.  Though his background in illustration and graphic design helped to inform his visual aesthetics, it is Septerhed’s sarcasm and sense of humor that make his images not only enjoyable, but memorable.  Generally Septerhed’s images tend to originate from a digital composition, and are reproduced through either silkscreening, or by hand with acrylic paints.  “Subversive Holiday” features a closer examination of three of Septerhed’s most recognizable characters (The GEO-HEDs, Toxins and Wolves), explaining the existence and nuances of each style as a specific mode of design.  The exhibition will also feature a Limited Edition Giclee Print, “Don’t Mind Me” released exclusively through Hold Up Art.

The exhibition will run through September 1, 2011.
