Recap: Kingbrown Issue 8 Release Party at Klughaus Gallery
Kingbrown had an explosive opening on Thursday night to celebrate the release of Kingbrown Issue No. 8, hosted by the Klughaus gallery. The vibe was almost like a mini-block party as people were scattered into the street all the way around the corner to the LES skate park where Mike Giant was posted up signing boards and black books. Out in front someone was throwing up some gnarly black and white skulls opposite where Mike Giant had painted the Kingbrown sign featuring the names of all those involved.
Inside was packed – as is generally the case with any opening at Klughaus. People were dripping with sweat, free beer, and Bushmills to get an up close look at some of the amazing work being displayed. The exhibition featured artists such as Morning Breath, Andy Jenkins, Chris Cycle, Dave Kinsey, “Grotesk” aka Kimou Meyer, Stefan Marx, Kevin Lyons, Mike Giant, “Razauno”, aka Max Vogel, Greg Lamarche, Zach Malfa-Kowalski, Steve Gourlay and Ben Horton, all of whom have contributed to the limited 8th edition of Kingbrown Magazine.
