Ketnipz NYC Pop-Up Store

  • Google Calendar ICS

The next Ketnipz pop-up store at 393 Broadway in New York City on June 1st and 2nd will be a cluster of the artist’s most recent creative endeavors. Inspired by the idea of expression through customization and craft, the show will revolve around typical art forms, and how they bleed into everything else.

It is also all about collaboration this time, as Ketnipz works with two separate companies to create unique items of clothing and artwork. Working with the up-and-comic denim repurposing company, AndAgain, both brands have come together to create 6 bespoke pieces of apparel, with a strong focus on re-imagining worn-out jeans. Then, through working with The Art Plug, Ketnipz will present 4 original pieces of art, along with a limited run of prints. The limited edition prints will also be available online on Thursday, May 24th at 10am PST on www.monsieurmarcel.net.

There will also be a small line of custom t-shirts to celebrate the event, and donuts to celebrate National Donut Day.

You can find Ketnipz on Instagram @ketnipz and join him in NYC on June 1st and 2nd for the pop-up at 393 Broadway featuring original artwork, limited edition prints, and branded clothing.

‘The Art Plug Trap House’ is a nearly 3,000 square foot space on the festival grounds that will be packed with artwork and installations by a lineup of 7 artists, who are transforming the area into an interactive, insta-worthy exhibit with disruptive and REAL art.

Nychos will be live painting his colorfully morbid murals on massive (11 foot) canvases throughout the weekend, along with Cuban artist CB Hoyo who will live paint canvases and furniture in an exhibit outfitted with giant neon signs flashing messages like “Buy Art Not Drugs” (with a secondary reading “Well… Buy Both”).

Festival-goers can snap selfies in front of a gold money bag by Zevi G, and can literally step inside of a giant 8 foot pill bottle installation created by Shawn Kolodny.

To pay homage to performers – Somehoodlum will create life-sized art installations including a Migos Stir Fry and a giant N.E.R.D.S. box.

LeftyOutThere will be live painting on photographs by Stillz of hiphop artists that performed in the past Rolling Loud.

The exhibit will be open Friday, May 11 to Sunday, May 13.

Featured Artists:

Nychos @Nychos - Live painting on large canvases

CB Hoyo @CBHoyo - Live painting and neon art wall

Zevi G @ZeviGArt - Art installation with money bags

Somehoodlum @Somehoodlum - Art installation

Stillz @Stillz x lefty OUT there @LeftyOutThere - Collaboration live painting

Shawn Kolodny @shawnkolodny - Art installation with giant pill bottles

Monsieur Marcel will also be releasing exclusive limited works with these artists after the music festival. 

Music festivals are an opportunity for fans and artists to celebrate their passion for various forms of art. From music to visual installations, Rolling Loud aims to give attendees a memorable experience they will look forward to every year, and it has succeeded.  It was important to Katz and Zingler to implement visual art into this year’s festival to give artists a larger platform to communicate their ideas and generate discussion.

Make sure to stop by The Art Plug Trap House to enjoy these installations throughout the weekend.
