On Friday 20th of January from 6-8pm, head down to the RVCA Corner Gallery in Collingwood to catch the opening night of a very special exhibition featuring the art of Steve Cohen and Ben Brown.
Steve Cohen (mongofreak on Instagram), a guitarist in the band “Flour and Cutsick”, as well as a respectable dog owner, runs a screen-printing business based in Northcote called Too Far Gone. His art is used on a lot of Poison City Records merchandise, and is featured on t-shirts (which you can pick up on the exhibition opening night) as well as other garments for local and international bands, tattoo shops, clothing labels, and whatever else you desire. With an overall review of 5.0 stars on his Facebook page, there’s no denial of talent.
Ben Brown, the frontman for “The Hellmenn”, is a well-known artist. Being in the industry for over 20 years, his work has been displayed on Waterfront Records releases. Brown is also responsible for iconic pieces such as Nirvana’s Nevermind Australian tour poster, as well as tour and album artwork for bands such as Sonic Youth and Pearl Jam. His morbid illustrations of celebrities and various characters give off an Andy Warhol aura.
The exhibition runs from 20th January – 15th February, and is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am-4pm. RVCA Corner Gallery is at 191 Wellington St in Collingwood.
