PsychoPop at Psycho Campbell

Psycho Donuts Offers New Menu Item with PsychoPop! Art Exhibition

Opening Event Features High Energy, Colorful Prints Inspired by Pop & Street Art

Campbell, CA - June 27, 2011 - Psycho Donuts will fill not only it’s cases with delectable treats this summer, but offer a feast for the eyes with the three art shows, beginning Friday, July 1 with Psycho Pop. This show, brought together by artist and curator Wallace Harper, brings a range of energized, colorful and high-impact silkscreen prints inspired by pop, “low-brow” street imagery, rock & roll posters, and outsider art.

“I wanted to have the works of art to match and expand on the

dynamic and highly innovative qualities of the donuts Psycho Donuts is known for,” explains Harper. “The works in this show are an eclectic mix of art prints and concert posters containing everything from cartoonish visions to photographic hallucinations, all by known artists in the low-brow/street art movement. I think there is really something here for everyone!”

The exhibition features artists who have appeared in Juxtapose Magazine and other alternative media, including: Frank Kozik, Aelhra, Print Mafia, Diesel Prints, Stainboy and others. All of the prints are handmade using the silk screen (serigraph) technique, and are signed by the artist and in limited, numbered editions, or Artist's Proofs.

Jordan Zweigoron, Chief Psycho from Psycho Donuts said, "PsychoPop adds yet another crazy new twist to our creative line-up. Beyond the donuts and nurses, the art on our walls is yet another key element that establishes Psycho Donuts as the World's Most Unusual Donut Shop. We're thrilled to bring such a dynamic and well-represented show to Psycho Donuts."

The show will have an opening reception on Friday, July 1 from 6 - 9pm, and also feature a chance to try Psycho Donut’s new crazy new fritter - Gone Bananas - before it's released to the public. Anyone purchasing a print at the opening will also get a free donut. For more information please visit www.psychodonuts.com or find the event Facebook listing.
