The artists that curator, and prolific artist and designer Marka 27 has gathered from both coasts vary wildly: from passionate, feverish, athleticism to carefully structured graphics, these artists’ aesthetics are certainly varied, but not hard to associate. All 16 artists hint at a similar respect and nod to architecturally-influenced expression, vibrant, often-times grotesque design, and a no-holds-barred expanse of movement—all accompanied by a fierce, self-survivalist-immediacy.


While FEAR NO ART 4 is certainly not the first exhibition featuring street art, it is the first time these particular artists have been featured together on the same coast, in the same space, reacting and playing off of each other for the first time. Rather than showcase a singular artist, this exhibit is a representation of an amalgamation of cultures, identities, ideas, and personalities much like the cities that these artists use as their canvas.


The artists gathered in this collection range from legendary graffiti artists to up-and-coming graphic designers, to expressive pop-surrealist painters—but really, these labels do them a disservice. All of the artists represented in FEAR NO ART 4 are revolutionaries who use a variety of media to challenge the most complex ideals, which are, of course, wrapped in the simplest of questions: What is art? What is art if it is not for sale? What is art if it is impermanent, hidden, digital, wet, gross, or illegal? What is art if we do not call it art?
