Some Product

A bit more L.A. in spirit than earthy-crunchy Oregonian, SOME PRODUCT is the latest art installation from Portland provocateur and resident in rebellion Joey Maas. A well-established punk rock musician for most of his adult life, Joey’s latest artistic focus and endeavors carry on the spirit, defiance and cultural dissent he embraced in his music within the mediums of visual, conceptual and immersive arts. Maas’ work is reminiscent of the true spirit of conceptual art + cultural commentary from artists – past and present – like Andy Warhol, Banksy, Brainwash and Shepard

Fairey. Maas’ work veers toward delivering disruptive and disconcerting commentary on the comical and absurd elements of modern day life and, particularly, on celebrity culture and our full-time, ever-futile past-time of consumerism. His work is often delivered with a wry, winking splash of performance art. Complete with a glamorous red carpet entrance on April 5th the SOME PRODUCT exhibition will showcase 12 visual works that include paintings, 3-D art pieces, and screen prints. The show be gifting its first 50 visitors with a complimentary “little douche bag” of tricks and treasures. Additional installations of the SOME PRODUCT project will include experiential + performance art ventures that include the audience being “in on” as well as “the brunt of” the art’s message, perhaps its “joke.”
