Another month, another talent. As time has gone on we’ve begun to delve deeper and deeper into the local art scene, and as such, more and more artists have began to reach out to us. This month’s featured works come by way of yet another Steel City native, Jordan Beckham. Now those outside the local or major media scenes may not be familiar with the name – oh but please believe, you’re well acquainted with the work.
As usual, we’ll be holding an in-store event for the premier gallery showing (Friday, May 4th) at our spot on Liberty. And with these events catching on, one can expect an even longer “Who’s Who?” list to be in attendance. We’d like to send a special thanks to the peeps @ Rocksmith Jenesis and the Vanity Group for helping us put this on, along with Shef Shaun/ Sola Gratia for the food and Clique Vodka for the Drinks, Dj Freaky Bril holding us down on the 1′s & 2′s, and of course, our Man of the Hour, Jordan Beckham for the main attraction. See you folks there.
You can check out a brief bio and more of Jordan’s work after the jump, or hit up his site @ jordanbeckham.com
