Dude, Monster! Opening Night ~ Think Tank Gallery
Dude, Monsters! is born of the idea that even those who don’t have a defined place within society and the greater art world can find a home together within their unique worldviews. Society has long had a habit of dividing itself into smaller subcultures, and with the presence of the internet, these subcultures have had the opportunity to connect more freely and interact with others that share similar interests and opinions, which has changed their outcast status. Social misfits of all kinds, each artist in Dude, Monsters! finds solace in his work and similarity with that of his peers. Skating, street art, graffiti writing, punk rock and more have started with a rejection of or lack of acceptance to societal regulations, and often only to be adapted and embraced by society as a whole, to varying degrees. – Think Tank Gallery
