While all of Jeremy Fish’s work is steeped in storytelling, for his newest show he’s actually letting you hear the story behind the work—while you look at the work.
Opening June 21 at Joshua Liner Gallery, each piece will be accompanied by headphones playing their respective stories, straight from the storyteller’s mouths—Snoop Dogg, Mike Giant, Lance Mountain, Mars-1, the Dandy Warhols‘ Courtney Taylor, and more.

Bid on this bike and 100% of proceeds go to the Bahati Foundation which supports SoCal inner-city and underserved communities through coaching, education, and mentoring. While the foundation is largely education-centric, they also do cycling outreach as founder Rahsaan Bahati is a champion cyclist. Hence the bike. Learn more at BahatiFoundation.org »

Joshy D gave me this sticker back in ’04 when I was teaching at Academy of Art. He and Mike Giant were only a year into launching REBEL8. Then I was just happy to spot their gear around SF. Now, they’re on meteoric rise beyond the Bay. On Travis Barker and Lil Wayne. In insane collabs with SF’s Benny Gold and even Vans Shoes. I could not be more stoked.
