‘Duet’ with Jean Jullien and Jean André – July 7th


Jean André and Jean Jullien ‘Duet’

Thursday, July 7th, 6pm-10pm

HVW8 Gallery
661 N Spaulding Ave
Los Angeles, CA

DUET- Jean Jullien & Jean André @ HVW8 Gallery

HVW8 Gallery, Almost Skateboards and Cliché Skateboards present DUET, a celebration of art and skateboarding featuring the work of internationally renowned French artists Jean Jullien and Jean André. The opening reception for the exhibition is on Thursday July 7th.
In addition to new original works from each artist, the show will feature a special showing of limited edition skate decks along with other limited items. Only 50 of each limited edition deck will be made.

Jean Jullien is a French graphic artist whose tongue-in-cheek works often have the ability to capture the imagination while making a poignant observation about the subject matter in question. His comical style often captures reflections on everyday life or current events and pokes fun at the mundane, but at the same time is provocative enough to elicit a profound reaction in the viewer.

Jean André is a French artist that often uses the female form and erotic imagery as the focus of his work. His “gentleman art” can often be cited as both pulp and satire that draws on influences from Matisse and Gainsbourg to Drake and 80’s eroticism.

HVW8 Gallery was founded in 2006 with the goal of supporting contemporary art and avant-garde graphic design, and has featured past solo exhibitions with both Jean André and Jean Jullien.

HVW8 Gallery— Tyler Gibney on Art & Politics



Listen to the Interview — Tyler Gibney of HVW8

To not stand for something means you’ll fall for anything. HVW8 Gallery co-founder Tyler Gibney has never been content on the sidelines. Despite the inability to vote as a Canadian citizen, Gibney put his artistic stake in the ground for the 2016 Presidential Election. The global influence of the United States is an important part of the world’s fabric. To be apathetic and not challenge the world around us is a great disservice according to Gibney. The HVW8 story is not focused so much on the candidate they support. It’s about the very decision to pick a side and to tell a story through art in the divisive world of politics.

Karl Hab presents 24H LOS ANGELES



Opening and Book Signing: April 20 2016, 7-10 pm
Exhibition Runs: April 21 – May 8th, 2016
Location: HVW8 Gallery, Los Angeles

24 hours Los Angeles is not a book and exhibition about the city of L.A. It’s a unique vision of one city shown through the eyes of young photographer Karl Hab. After many trips to L.A., Karl wanted to share his love and admiration for this town and what it means to him. During those various experienc- es in the City of Angels, he tried to capture a certain essence of this city from a different point of view, especially using aerial shots.

There is a special feeling when you come to L.A. and it starts when you exit the airport. It’s something so special that it’s hard to explain with words, especially when it comes to the beauty and the buzz of this city – which is why Karl used his lens to express himself.

The photos are organized by chronological order – starting with the beginning of the day and its cold tones to its end with the warm ones – showing the city through many angles and many shades.

The book and exhibition is about a single vision, a unique feeling of a city which changes every day. This is why Karl’s photos re ect the sensitivity of the light, the colorimetry of the landscapes and a topic he holds dear: colors, planes, cars, and many more.

After reading and viewing 24 hours Los Angeles, you may see something different in a city you thought you knew so well before.

The introduction of the book is written by the New York based artist Daniel Arsham.

There are no page numbers, but hours corresponding to these times: morning, noon, afternoon and evening. You’ll also find GPS coordinates that represent the captions.

Cody Hudson ‘When I Finally Get Myself Together’ Now extended to March 26th at HVW8 Berlin.

Email info(at)hvw8.com for inquiries.

Chicago based artist Cody Hudson presents a new body of work in his first ever solo exhibition in Germany at HVW8 Gallery, Berlin.

After years of working on sculptures using a similar set of geometric shapes, this new body of paintings on linen takes those same simple bold shapes into painted forms.  For the first time, this language is brought concurrently into all parts of his practice. Starting with simple geometric shapes and slowly evolving into slightly more representational paintings to abstracted still lifes, the repetition of color and shapes starts to develop an internal dialogue. Titles of paintings such as “All One Or None,” “I Don’t Want To Die Alone” or “Post Post Still Life With Pots, Bong And Shell” loosely reference spirituality and/or false spirituality, 90’s rave music sub-genre ragga jungle, and overwhelming feelings of anxiety.

The show also includes a series of one color paintings from the “Shapes and Colors Dept.” painting series, which focuses on very simple one color combinations of shapes painted in an almost meditative state. At times these paintings take on a repetitive pattern feel while at others becoming almost floral.

A series of new steel sculptures will also be shown as well as four new screen prints produced by the art publisher Draw A Line based in Berlin.

Cody Hudson is a Chicago based artist, also known for his graphic design contributions under the name Struggle Inc. His graphic work and paintings have been exhibited throughout the US, Europe and Japan including the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), V1 (Copenhagen), Hellerau Art Center (Dresden) and Andrew Rafacz (Chicago).

Location: HVW8 Gallery, Linienstr. 161, Berlin
