SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is proud to present the first ever solo show by musician, songwriter, and artist Tim Armstrong (Operation Ivy, Rancid, The Transplants), featuring never before seen artwork. The raw, hard-edged spontaneity in Armstrong’s art mirrors his approach to music making, exemplifying a “passion is more important than precision” aesthetic that speaks to the creative rebellion dwelling inside us all.

Avenues & Alleyways features drawings, paintings, watercolors, and mixed media works on found materials that have been collaboratively selected by Armstrong and Shepard Fairey. The range in medium, size, and subject matter provide a well-rounded presentation of Armstrong’s honest and unrefined artistic charm. The imagery includes figures in Armstrong’s life, tools of his trade, album covers for deceased musicians, and poetic ruminations scrawled across simple line drawings.

Tim Armstrong’s art has a visceral lyricism and immediacy that screams “if you feel it in your guts…express it with your hands!” The D.I.Y. punk ethos of honesty and emphasis on raw instinct that is so integral to Tim’s music is clearly evident in his tremendous body of gestural and poetic visual art. I was amazed by the quality and diversity within Tim’s “Tim Timebomb” project for which he created a song and piece of art each day for a year. If Tim’s drive and proliferation in multiple mediums don’t inspire you to get off your ass, nothing will! – Shepard Fairey

The first time I heard of Shepard was back in 1991 at my punk house in the East Bay, when I saw his stickers on our wall, and I’ve been a fan ever since. It’s an honor to be working with him and Subliminal on this art show. As long as I can remember, I have drawn or painted pictures. I’m looking forward to sharing it with everyone. – Tim Armstrong

A box set (Edition of 100) containing 45 screen prints by Armstrong, modeled after the 7 inch 45 format, will be released opening night with a limit of one per person / household. All prints in the box set will be signed by Armstrong and numbered.  Avenues & Alleyways will be on view through Saturday, February 22.
