we will make time for every single person who feels something when gazing into our art and this project. we seriously are grateful for each and every person supporting this and helping it take form as it’s doing. our last #ARTCVLT art gathering was beyond words. it was something out of a collective dream that we all shared together seamlessly at some place or time. that was entirely you all. we built the stage and you all came. truly a work of art.
what we are doing is a very raw narrative. we expound on the journey of restoring power into the arts by collaborating with our family of artists and creators.
this was all created from making and selling art in the streets. we cannot express that enough.
the appreciation was unexpected and we just feel it’s important to express gratitude. this is a very conscious organism.
to remain in the know of the next gathering give us your email. be on the look out for anything from contact@cvltaesthetics or our name “cvlt aesthetics” – add us to your contacts and keep an eye out for information, not only just for the experience, but photography from our friends, creative writing, shirt releases, and news.
to live a life-style of dedication to the arts is major commitment. we assure you this is not a phase or just something that will fizzle out. this is a life’s work.
thanks for being apart of it.
here is a link to some photos from our previous artcvlt art gathering…
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.
oh man- the list of thank you’s for the contributing creators and our friends and family who attended is so vast. we will start by sharing our affection for the performing artists: Proper Channels, hellboy.hellboy, Austin Rapbaum, Neji Vibez, Dapper Dan, & Gools. together we are a society of artists dabbling in the craft of creation. the visual artists and brands: Gloomy Nation, Equoni, & Cvlt Aesthetics– thanks for being present sharing your vision with us.
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.
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.
spontaneity of life. the warmth of joy and love. this is why we exist:
the amount of love for life pouring out in the photos featured above is unmatched. the women who joined our brother Chris in the photos was not planned, clearly. that was raw BLISS. they knew what was up, and they slayed. lovely ladies if you ever read this, thank you for making this moment what it was. this is one of the main reasons why we love our city. everyone knows how to truly live and is for the culture. New Orleans is the arts universe. it’s a place you come to thrive off of your art. no, it is not easy at ALL. your IDENTITY makes you who you are, and that’s what people come to you for. the more raw you are with yourself, the more you will thrive and be respected as an artist. Louisiana has been our stomping grounds. Louisiana is where we got our start -from selling art in the streets, to selling art in galleries. we are building from the realm around us. our family of artists have grown since launch.
cvlt aesthetics is about being yourself. unfiltered creativity. live in bliss with us.
if these photos didn’t make you smile or happy, you might be lost.

a word from the founder pt 1:
“everything that takes place within this project is intended to be raw creative expression. this has taken shape into our daily lives.
to make this entirely clear, this project has become so much of my life. mainly because i chose for this to be.
this brand has become a way to express my creative vision as freely as i want to. if you want to get real… this is pretty much my mind in the form of a website. this is my magnum opus in motion. i dedicated my life to becoming a better visual artist and making art my only means of survival at the start of winter in 2013. in 2014 i relentlessly began a journey into the depths of artistic mastery. in the fall of 2015 i created Cvlt Aesthetics. this all came about from a personal understanding of my role in the world i live in – in relation to the community/realm around me.
as time went on, people began to notice this more as i shared each new shirt produced with my artwork on it. a year ago today i began unintentionally drawing the Armageddon Collection immediately after Clams Casino, one of my main musical influences, shared my art on the internet. around mid July i got them produced after selling my art in the streets of New Orleans.
in three days, the fifth design will be made public and shared to the friends, family, and readers of this project.
thanks for your time just now reading this blurb. i wanted to try and give a little background information to those who are just now finding out about this.”
with love, power, dedication and creative freedom…
