you have to be a little comfortable with your mortality

we are falling apart and decomposing each and everyday. every day we make the choice to contribute to the world or take from it- for the world will tirelessly take from you. almost every second. as we create, we are destroyed. we highly advise to not look in this as becoming a fearmongering concept. sometimes we need to be reminded of our mortality in order to achieve a certain level of success. we are gifted each waking day to impact the world in some shape or form. it’s what you do with your time here that matters the most. this project is aimed to bring this mindset to light- there’s a certain level of destruction that is healthy, and there is a certain level of existential dread that can bring about the most dramatic changes in your life for the better.

#artcvlt: new orleans society of hip-hop and the arts

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.

we met outside a barbecue venue selling art to get in

this is our official warped tour photo post and our story of how our paths crossed. Garrett Russell of Silent Planet stumbled upon our set up outside the gates for their show in North Louisiana. he noticed that we had original drawings for sale. when he asked why- the reply was to afford entry into the show.

making art and selling it has been the means of survival since 2014. making and selling art is the blood of this project. it was this day in March our lives intertwined. the genuine appreciation for both of our gifts has created a lasting relationship filled with inspiration for over three years. the muses. our lonely start selling artwork on the streets has shaped the entirety of this project. the songs of Silent Planet have influenced a majority of the artwork created here. in reality it’s only natural.

When this photo was taken I said “Y’all Garrett Russell is for the people” while he tirelessly shares his love to their family and friends.

today we celebrated friendship in the heart of Houston Texas. it was a family reunion, the gentlemen in Silent Planet are hard at work all the time. Mitch being the melodic guitar witch, Alex being the astonishing metronome, Thomas being the heart and Garrett becoming the voice. together they have been breaking the air and opening hearts of many with each and every performance. i often wonder how the dynamic of that band works. they seem to be very well pleased doing what they do. as they make art and inspired the world, we make art and inspire as well.

Father Mitch. The melodic guitar witch.
That’s Thomas. We promise he isn’t just a head of hair.
Alex on the drums. The father of metronome.

the best thing that anyone can ask for are a group of friends who are willing to listen to you no matter what level of success. the conscious audience that gravitates around Silent Planet  is a loving family, something we desire to create in exact image as them.

the spirit exists in their fans. their reach is incredible-with their combined abilities they change the lives of every listener while providing powerful and potent messages laced within each song.

it was truly an excellent adventure around the lands of Houston, TX warped. here are a few photos that marked the day.

this is Mark. he’s one of the most kindest humans in the entire world. meeting him in New Orleans changed my life.

MOTHERSOUND is another band that we found a loving relationship with over the years of being involved with the culture. They are such babes. Take me.

we are in love with our friends and family who directly support us. literally in love with you. thank you for noticing the artwork among the many things taking place this day. thank you for taking the time out of your day then to talk and become connected. if you are reading this now please email us immediately at contact@cvltaesthetics.com –

 

route to warped

it’s never really too bad sleeping in parking lots. you’re just going to be hot for a while, maybe toss and turn a bit. either way you’re still alive and living for the sake of adventure. we had plans to see our brothers perform in Silent Planet at the vans warped tour. we’re in Houston, TX. they’ve come a long way- i wonder how they deal with the heat if any pals are in the Houston Texas area, it would be nice to gather around today-tomorrow.

explore.

there are only 33

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.

view our facebook event page for more details.

we live to create.

Akira by Leeaux

our next production will be an Akria Movie Night

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
