Famed street artist and pop surrealist painter, Ron English, has hand-picked 14 artists who are drawn from the street and the pop surrealism movement to join him in displaying their South Park interpretations.

The featured artists include: Ron English, Travis Louie, Colin Christian, Sas Christian, Beau Stanton, Kid Zoom, Dave White, KaNo, Kathie Olivas, Clark Fox, Greg Craola Simkins, Mark Dean Veca, Lindsey Way, Naoto Hattori and Tristan Eaton.

I recently teamed up with Rebaroque to create a custom artist series sound panel for its debut at SCOPE New York.  Here's the result and a bit of info about the project.

The Rebaroque Artist Series Sound Wall, curated by Lori Zimmer, combines our passions- art, sustainable design and music. Each Rebaroque sound panel is made from vintage fabrics, frames, hand painting and high quality Pyle speakers, and hook right up with your iPod or smart device. We’ve selected 20 artists to create unique collaborative pieces that not only look great on your wall, but play your favorite music as well. Artists include Beau StantonClaw Money, Cycle, Ellis GGaiaIan Kuali’iJim AvignonJon BurgermanJonathan Viner,M11XMartin WittfoothMr. KijiNathan PickettOrlando Reyes, ROSTARR x MadluvRyan BradleySharktoofTara McPherson and Vesta.
The pieces will be wired together- creating a wall of sound, which will play a curated program during the fair.  We’ve asked some of our favorite artists, musicians and publications to put together the sounds and songs that inspire them, including  Gogol BordelloDJ DB’s BLURRRing RadioKid ZoomDJs Ole Koretsky and Andy Rourke of The Smiths, jazz musician Brian Newman, pop culture blog The World’s Best Ever and more.
