Then at 9:00 the space will transition into a party with DJs Kids Meal and Wick-It doing there thing with music on patio by The Lovenoise Soundsystem (DJs Elevation and Soul Infinite).

Project 24: Wick-It

DJ Wick-It (one of our favorite DJs) was definitely having the best week ever with his big article in The Nashville Scene followed up by AudRoc and Rex2 rocking a WorkForce Rebellion/Wick-It production at the August edition of Mashville. On top of that the Rebellion gave him four posters to share with friends. He deserves it, dude is a cool, down-to-earth guy and a sick-ass DJ.

Project 23: Obama

We teamed up with Tayst Fashion and created an Obama themed production on our portable wall. AudRoc really hooked up the giant potrait. It will be the backdrop of the stage for Tayst's One Year Anniversary Fashion Show. It goes down Friday, 08-08-08. We also created a limited run of 18" x 24" posters to sell at the event. After the event the mural will be displayed inside Tayst Fashion.

Mr. LoveNoise, Eric Holt

We've been working with Eric Holt and his company LoveNoise for about 4 years. He's a supporter of the Rebellion and Barack Obama, so we made sure he got the first WFR Obama poster. We are planning a big WorkForce Rebellion and LoveNoise event. It is planned for Sunday, October 12, 2008. Check back for more details.

Gallery East

Gallery East is a new spot in the Five Points of East Nashville. It opens Friday 08-08-08. It's our friends from King Funk and Ochoa Inc. and the space will combine art and music. We did their logo and created a pattern for the exterior. WorkForce Rebellion will be doing a big art show and party at Gallery East on Saturday, September 27, 2008. Check back for more details.

Rex2 & Riet - Street Fighter

The guys from AM7 crew in Nashville (Verse, Rago and Riet) invited Rex2 to get down on their "Street Fighter" themed production. Street Fighter is a popular, martial arts, video game first released in 1987. It is still releasing updated versions. Here's Rex2 next to the character "Zangief" by Riet, and the sketch by Rex2 below.

Don't Believe The Hype

Nashville Lifestyles recently did a story on the artwork adorning the walls of Kid Rock's Nashville condo (If you follow this blog you already know Kid Rock has some of Rex2's work). It was a two page article and Rex's paintings are the only ones pictured on the second page. Here's the jacked up part: They credited the paintings to a Los Angeles based artist with no mention of Rex2 anywhere in the article. On top of that their website used a close-up of Jam Master Jay on the front page referencing the story. Then in the next issue they ran a tiny correction, misspelling Rex's name. Good job guys, way to represent for Nashville.
