We previously wrote about Hero Complex Gallery’s upcoming show, “Righteous Rides and the Dudes Who Drive Them“. The show opens TONIGHT and if you check out our article HERE, you will see that the art is impressive to say the least. The exhibit will be the first at their brand new gallery space in Los Angeles at 2020 South Robertson Blvd., Studio D.
We wanted to get folk hyped for tonight’s exhibit by sharing an exclusive image by artist Travis Getz. This piece is military themed and called “The Night Owls Are Coming For You”. Here are the details about the print:
“This limited edition print by military support artist Travis Getz honors the real-life heroes of the “Night Owls”. This US Army unit based out of Morrisville, North Carolina is well-known for conducting counterdrug and hurricane relief missions (represented by the dead snake and lightning hidden in the wings on either side of the poster).”
“The Night Owls Are Coming For You” – Travis Getz
Edition run: 30 S/N
18″ X 24″
Custom Silk Screen with Glow Feature on 100lb Cougar Natural paper stock
“The Night Owls currently fly the EADS North America UH-72 ”Lakota” Light Utility Helicopter. Previous unit helicopters, including the OH-58 “Kiowa” and UH-1 “Iroquois” are pictured in honor of the unit’s past service members.”
“This small unit of only around 40 personnel (each represented by a star in the design) was not able to afford to pay for a full run of prints themselves, your purchases at this show will allow for unit members to receive their prints at a reduced cost, THANK YOU!”
“BONUS! The print has a glow feature – with glow in the dark ink printed under all white, yellow and blue areas. When you see the glow, you’ll know the Night Owls are up there, prowling the night skies in search of drug dealers and citizen in peril…”
This is going to be an amazing show and there is an awesome giveaway, a Craig Drake metal print! If you are anywhere near Los Angeles tonight, ya gotta stop by and check out all the art, rub shoulders with the artists and buy this Night Owls print.
Opening Reception Giveaway:
We will be giving away (1) metal variant of Craig Drake’s “Kaneda!”, inspired by the film and manga.
