Glorious Excess (Born) by Mike Shinoda

Multi-talented Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park steps out of his usual musical role in his upcoming exhibit Glorious Excess (Born). The DC Shoes sponsored show is arguably his finest work to date incorporating personal revelations with pop commentary and vanitas influences. Vanitas itself is a Northern European art form dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. The art themes itself around the transience of earthly life and the futility of vanity. Some of the associated imagery includes skulls, rotten fruit, bubbles and musical instruments, each with significant connotations. Shinoda’s exhibition includes multiple influences and a character’s time line through a contemporary society’s fascination with fame, excess and instant gratification This event is the first of a two part series at the George and Sakaye Aratani Central Hall of the Japanese American National Museum. Aside from coinciding with Mike Shinoda’s collaborative sneaker effort with DC’s Remix collection, all the art and sneakers sold will have proceeds donated directly to the Michael K. Shinoda Endowed Scholarship at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. The event will begin on July 12th and conclude on August 3rd however an opening reception for the public and autograph signing will take place July 11 from 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm.
