Adam 5100 x Green Day

As we mentioned before, The Stencil Show artist Adam 5100 is a busy guy. We were happy to come across this image of his newest piece to be displayed at Stolen Space Gallery in just a few days. The painting, Murder City, is part of Green Day’s Art of Rock exhibit opening on October 23rd.

Murder City by Adam 5100

From NeuFutur Magazine:

“We’re really excited to be associated with this incredible show,” Green Day front-man Billie Joe Armstrong said. “Seeing the pieces that our new album has inspired is very exciting. We feel a strong connection to that type of creative expression; we think the fans coming out will love it.”

Logan Hicks, the show’s curator, also hit the nail on the head:

“I chose artists whom I felt had a similar visual approach to art as Green Day does to its music,” said Hicks, a stencil artist and die-hard punk-rock fan, whose portraits of band members Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool, and Mike Dirnt will also be on display. “Although most of the artists represented are well-established in their careers, they embrace the same emotional rawness with their art, which speaks from the heart and swings with the fist.

Their subject matter is struggle and injustice – they shoot from the hip and their art is their weapon.”

This morning, we were sad to hear that Adam’s studio was flooded over the weekend. Sending our love to Adam 5100!
