to start this off, there are a few points of last night’s event that we would like to bring to light. we are starting an arts revolution by hosting certain types of art gatherings and art shows under the name #ARTCVLT. this is just one aspect of this project as well. our art shows are meant to bring people of the same vibe and aesthetic under one roof-to mix -and have a night brought to you from the depths of our hive mind. we will provide the atmosphere and go live with you all, we just ask that you stay connected with any and all gatherings that take place and support the artists participating. click here to subscribe.
thank you for feeling this. seriously we had a mosh pit, circle pit,and each emcee was carrying heat -just great energy the entire night. there were Yu-Gi-Oh battles taking place with AKIRA streaming in the background. we couldn’t have felt more at home.
thank you Progression for curating this deal together with Hi-Ho Lounge. that was really groovy and i hope more people collaborate with you all in the future.
the crowd. thank you for sharing your energy with us tonight and making it what it was. there were so many new faces and people we would have loved to become connected with and have gotten to know. sadly there are limitations to man power for these gatherings. that’s all changing soon though.
here are some photos from last night
view our blog for information on previous art gatherings that took place this summer.
this will be our only art gathering for the month of August. we have a ton of internal work and planning taking place to make sure each and every art experience after this reaches a new level of production. we cannot wait to deliver this new concept to our friends, family, and loved ones.
these art gatherings are intended to offer an exclusive experience directly into our minds and the inner circle of artists and creators we associate with. so far our gatherings have been unreal and we are completely thankful for each and every person coming out to support the visual artists and performers. we are an arts society taking art shows into our own hands.
thank you for your time here. the event is taking place at Hi-Ho Lounge on Wednesday August 9th. donations at the door is $5 and it goes directly to the musical performers. please come and $upport our overly talented musician pals. they put their all into their sound and work.

tonight at Cafe Istanbul we will be celebrating the legendary film, AKIRA. this visually scoring work of ART has inspired the aesthetics and culture behind this brand. a lot of influence came from viewing this movie while growing up. we hope that you enjoy it in the same light. maybe you can celebrate the various elements of the film and see why it’s such a nu cvlt classic.
upon entry for the night, you will have the option to donate $5 or $10+ for entry. if you choose $10 or more you will receive a limited edition signed and numbered illustration by the founder himself. this is the first thing he’s drawn and made public all summer.
greetings and hello friends, family, and readers. much has been taking place within the art + clothing project over the summer. it’s been a very fruitful adventure releasing the new summer collection-as well as hosting art shows and pop-ups throughout the city of New Orleans. if you are reading this and attended one, wow seriously thanks- we really appreciated your involvement 100%. our next production will be an AKIRA movie night.
Akira has been a movie that’s inspired the core art and aesthetic of our project. it’s more than just a movie night for us. it’s a chance to celebrate the things that inspired us creatively growing up. we want our family of artists and lovers of the craft to gather in a very intimate setting for this legendary film. sharing drinks, snacks and forgetting the outside realm for just a moment. we invite you to become inspired as we were when viewing this movie. the art, animation, and music will consume you entirely bringing you directly to Neo-Tokyo.
as we grow older we find it vital to be reminded of the very things that shaped our creativity. we find so much value in this. thank you all for helping make this a success before it even takes place.
we are coming out of pocket to provide sound and kind of pull the production together- when you come Friday please take a moment to look at our artwork set up and snag a print or a new tee shirt. also not only just us- there will be a few other sponsored brands/visual artists helping make this event a success, so if you are able- pick up art/merchandise from them as well.
Friday, July 28th at Cafe Istanbul – 2372 Saint Claude Ave. – New Orleans, LA
our Golden Chips x Cvlt Aesthetics art pop-up was a successful gathering unlike anything we have ever done.
that phrase -you never know until you try- was our blood fueling the the gathering for the night. dreams and reality are not too far apart right now. if you have the idea, it’s up to you to make it happen.
last night we celebrated culture. we gathered and sang songs to the cosmos and the French Quarter streets. we painted and performed. we were infinite for a moment.
blessings to our hosts and family at Golden Chips who made sure we were fed.
this is the definition of culture. it’s insane to think our gifts all syncing in perfect harmony gave for such a pleasant night. our society of the arts is growing and it’s through these holy moments that we honor our gifts bestowed.
thank you – for all who came out to experience this very rare and raw event. thank you to the contributing artists who rebuilt that corner of Toulouse St. and made it what it was. many thanks to Golden Chips for opening their doors.
Saturday July 22nd we are hosting an art+music pop-up at Golden Chips in the French Quarter. Golden Chips is a Belgium Fry restaurant that serves up real filling and radical fries. our founder Leeaux will be live painting a new work of art for them to rest on their walls accompanied by the music from Shane Clay, Neji Vibez, and E.T. – this was seriously just an idea at first that came to life.
we firmly believe in the support of even mom & pop shops. if we have the opportunity to host our art or go live in collaboration with them, we’re probably going to take it. to rsvp click here.
