An Evening With Mark Gonzales at 1700 Naud

Rumour has it, P Diddy has an entire wall of Mark Gonzales artwork in his house.

Same with Donald Trump. While we might not wear as much white as Sean Combs or “grab pussies” like America’s ‘richest’ president, we too have a brand new Gonz wall to call our own.

To celebrate the upcoming JanSport x Mark Gonzales collection, we threw a little party at our new space in DTLA, 1700 Naud. Mark came out from NYC, unveiled his massive mural, displayed the original artwork from the collab, and signed a bunch of limited edition “Group Hug” prints for everyone who rolled through. Of course, Nose Pick Poetry was screening all night and select photos from Zander Taketomo were on display.

Turns out, you don’t always need to be rich and powerful to have a wall full of Gonz art. You just need to know how to throw a rad party. Or you could buy a bunch of these packs and tack ’em all over your house. Same difference, right?

If you’re in NYC this Friday, June 8, make sure to roll through KCDC to view the collection, shop limited edition signed packs, and catch a live “Conversation with Mark Gonzales” with Taji Ameen from VICE. 393 Broadway, New York. 6-10pm. 21+
