Ed Hardy: Visionary Subversive is a major exhibition of original art by one of the world’s most well-known culture icons. Co-curated by Hardy’s assistant Trevor Ewald and presented by Varnish Fine Art at The Midway in San Francisco, this month-long art show includes Ed Hardy’s self-described “Automatic,” “Crazy Animal,” never before shown “Eyecon,” and “Rose of No Man’s Land” paintings alongside the debut of his porcelain “Panos,” inspired by jailhouse handkerchief art.
During the counterculture revolution of 1960s San Francisco, Ed Hardy began subverting notions of what art is, and elevated tattoo art from a marginalized craft to the vital contemporary art form as it is known today. He continues to look beyond cultural boundaries to inspire his personal art and inform the public, promoting art world underdogs to Sailor Jerry infamy.
The Ed Hardy: Visionary Subversive art exhibition is on view at the Midway from October 5 to November 2, 2015. Gallery hours are Mondays through Fridays from 11 am to 3 pm.
Exhibit: October 5 – November 2, 2015; Mon-Fri, 11 am-3 pm
Closing Party: Monday, November 2nd, 7-11 pm
