BORN opening at Beep Beep Gallery

If you are looking for stuff to do, here’s an idea: support your local artists by going to the artist BORN’s opening at Beep Beep Gallery. BORN, who started out as a graffiti artist back in the day, has previously shown at Beep Beep with fellow graffiti alum HENSE.  You can see images of BORN in his studio here.  Check out an interview with the artist here (via Thoughtmarker).  Finally, check out some of his old tags here.

Beep Beep is a great little success story.  It started out with a few friends throwing an occassional house party/gallery in a rented house in Oakhurst in January 2006.  They would just move all the furniture against the wall, get a keg, and throw art up on the wall.  It turned out to be pretty popular (hey, I bought a print once), and it wasn’t long before they opened up a small space on Charles Allen just off Ponce.  Beep Beep has been in Creative Loafing’s Best of Atlanta for 2007, although for some reason I can’t find the link.

It is a great little shop, highlighting great local artists. I’m lucky enough to know one of the gallery owners as well as the artist, and I’m psyched about the opening.

The opening is Saturday, April 11, from 8-11pm.
