m shinoda art exhibition: glorious excess (born)

May 3, 2008

thanks to all of you that have supported my art and asked when i’ll be doing another art show…i’m proud to announce the opening of a new solo exhibition.

i will be showing a new collection of paintings and digital works at the Japanese American National Museum in los angeles from july 11th to august 3. JANM is right next door to MOCA, on 1st st. in LA.

the new show is entitled “GLORIOUS EXCESS (BORN).”

it will feature nine new works. the pieces are larger and the content deeper than any art series i have done. DC shoes is partially sponsoring the event. there will be an opening and a signing. more info to come…

  2. Xenith on May 8, 2008 at 2:07 am

    Mike will we have the option to purchase some of your work in the UK?

    Can you make more prints this time please I missed out on the last show 😦



  3. kUmiKo on May 7, 2008 at 11:41 pm

    oh i wish if i was in LA!!!! PLZ somebody bring the exhibition to japan!!!!!!!
    you definitely must upload the pics of your arts laterγƒΎ(ゝω・`)

  4. ShadowerLiltani on May 6, 2008 at 3:29 pm

    I really wasn’t expecting a new art show so soon πŸ™‚ You must be psyched though, I certainly would be. I wish I had money coming out of my wazu because if I did, I would so buy some prints.

  5. yun on May 6, 2008 at 10:45 am

    NO WAY! Another exhibitionnn, congrats Mike! I’m really happy for you, your art is something undescribable __
    I live in Italy so it’s just impossible for me to come, but it’s like I’ll be there XD I’d really like to buy one of your pieces..it would be like a dream come true for me. Figuring out a paint by you on my bedroom wall would be so…arghhhh LOOOOVE! We’ll see.! Keep us informed =D

  6. AS_21 on May 5, 2008 at 11:52 am

    I wish I lived there…I would like to go on this exhibition…. anyway good luck ^^
    it will be AMAZING for sure πŸ™‚

  9. Ezza on May 4, 2008 at 11:06 pm

  10. shinoda_me on May 4, 2008 at 10:37 pm

  12. Kira on May 4, 2008 at 10:35 pm

    Know what’s fun about college? Procrastination. I have an eight page (minimum) paper due in ten hours on Jews in the South. So far, I’ve typed my name, the date, the class, and the title. Good times.

  13. DaniShinoda on May 4, 2008 at 9:29 pm

    Hello Mike, what’s up??

    Oh God, your big art show is coming! I have to see your new exhibition, I really wish I could go from Brazil untill US to see your paintings ’cause I love your art… But I don’t know if it’ll be possible.

    Then congrats for keep us noticed about your GLORIOUS EXCESS (BORN) and sucess!
    And what about the other shows in this year? Will we win a show from Linkin Park in Brazil this year?

    Take care, I love you boy!

  14. lynndarwinharris on May 4, 2008 at 6:08 pm

    I wish I could be there, but I am on the other side of the US. I know the exhibition will be awesome! By the way, Do you ever get any rest?

  15. nillp on May 4, 2008 at 4:34 pm

    take care; love ya ~ mk’nil

  16. asianotter on May 4, 2008 at 3:53 pm

    congratulations on the new collection! love the title, by the way and i know the work will be wonderful. can’t wait to see it. and it is absolutely amazing of you to have your exhibit at JANM instead of MOCA! just when i think that you have reached the pinnacle of perfection you go and do something spectacular like this. this is just the kind of thing that the Japanese community needs! you are quite the role model, Mr. Shinoda. thank you!

  17. nillp on May 4, 2008 at 2:54 pm

    i don’t know if u like this kind of movies [or if u had already seen], but IRON MAN is a really great movie.. robert did an amazing job.. u should check it..! πŸ˜€

    btw, if anyone is going to the movies to watch it, don’t leave the room before the credits’ end. (:

  18. nataku on May 4, 2008 at 2:18 pm

    i know it would be impossible do to do this out of america but still: it’s sad i won’t be there. i won’t even have a chance to visit america in like… 10 years?! i don’t know… poland is like the ass of the world == … but still i hope the exhibition will go great! i don’t understand all of your paintings but i admire you and i have that book with your art form bandmerch πŸ˜› take care!

  19. karu_carly on May 4, 2008 at 2:06 pm

  20. Maria727 on May 4, 2008 at 12:44 pm

    I would sell my (figurative) right leg to be able to go to the opening! But sadly, I live on the other side of the country…

    It would be spectacular if you decided to exhibit here in the good ol’ Sunshine State~ We’d be glad to have you. And yes, I just authorized myself to speak for all of Florida πŸ™‚

    Best wishes and congrats!

    Greetz :-*

  44. linkinparc on May 4, 2008 at 1:07 am


    you are my abseloute favourite artist and I’m flying for the first time in my life to LA, the 13th july!!! (because i’m going to New Zealand)

    I will ask my parents if I could stay one night IN LA before continuing to Auckland..

    omg omg

  45. soyuneik on May 4, 2008 at 12:42 am

    Nice nice. Even though I’m on the opposite side of the country its possible I’ll be in the area around that time anyhow.

  46. Giselle on May 3, 2008 at 11:41 pm

    How exciting! As I live overseas I wasn’t able to see your last exhibition, but I bought your art book and love your personal style. It’s rather inspiring for an aspiring artist such as myself. For the same reason I won’t be able to make it to this upcoming one, can we overseas fans expect to see many photos and a similar book available online so we can enjoy your work as well? That would be awesome. Best of luck, and thanks again for the inspiration =]

  47. Fishgoingwest on May 3, 2008 at 9:52 pm

    I’m happy to hear that,though I won’t have the chance to attend your exhibition.

    Wish it another success with all my heart!

    It will be glorious!!

  48. Jaclyn on May 3, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    Congratulations!!! Fine news! glorious victorious Morpheus notorious ;)) I can only hope to see fotos of your art but nevertheless i’ll be waiting for late summer impressions. Kiss ❀

  49. axrinekey on May 3, 2008 at 9:10 pm

    I wish I live in LA. ):

    I really wish I can see your artworks!

  50. ruru87 on May 3, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    congratulations mike! :)) i wish i could see them

  51. RavRule52 on May 3, 2008 at 8:06 pm

    awesome! can’t wait to see the stuff.

    oh, by the way, where did meteora go on itunes?? i just noticed that it was gone the other day.

  52. outlawserenade on May 3, 2008 at 8:04 pm

    Intriguing title indeed. Have a good exhibition, good sales and whatnot (I’m sure there’ll be some folks who’d just be snaggin’ your work left and right) πŸ˜‰ If/when it opens for LPUers, puh-LEEZE allow them tons of piccies, or make loads yourself.

    Better yet, snap ’em online. Don’t forget to tag ’em. We on the other side of the globe want to see ’em too, y’know.

    Anyway, ‘grats again.

  53. lp_fm_fan on May 3, 2008 at 7:58 pm

    Like Kathy said thanks for coming by the LPU! πŸ˜€

  54. KATHYxx on May 3, 2008 at 7:43 pm

  57. NordishByNature on May 3, 2008 at 6:16 pm

    Congrats Mike!

    Btw, you should really check this out. The best guy from German Idol. ;D

  58. vanessa_6487 on May 3, 2008 at 5:37 pm

  63. analoggirl on May 3, 2008 at 4:31 pm

    Congratulations on the new exhibition, Mike! “Glorious Excess (Born)” is an intriguing theme. Interesting choice for the venue too. If I was in L.A., I’d definitely check it out. πŸ™‚

    Please post some pics from the show/signing!

    By the way, are you planning on publishing a new art book?

  64. dark_red on May 3, 2008 at 3:31 pm

    I hope these paintings have alpacas in them. I know how much you adore your alpaca farm.

  65. Carla on May 3, 2008 at 2:51 pm

    Congratulations on your art show!
    I personally can’t go to it all the way from the East Coast. (unless I manage to pull some strings, heh) Still, hoping to see your new work and that you have great success! πŸ˜€

  66. CHEN_IL on May 3, 2008 at 2:34 pm

  71. Kira on May 3, 2008 at 12:45 pm

    Congratulations, good luck, and I hope it goes well. I won’t be able to see for myself, as I’ll be home in Tennessee for the summer.

  72. masimoes on May 3, 2008 at 12:41 pm

    that’s awesome Mike!! great news. I’m excited to see your new art works! I love the ones you have done so far. I wish I could make it to the exhibition but that’s impossible since I live in Brazil. I’ll wait for pics then πŸ™‚

  73. amp101 on May 3, 2008 at 12:35 pm

    That’s great to hear! Interested to see what new pieces you’ve made πŸ™‚

  74. Andizzle on May 3, 2008 at 12:27 pm

    Congrats Mike, that sounds brilliant. I really liked your Diamonds Spades Hearts and Clubs work so I’m looking forward to seeing some of your new paintings. Also, the “digital works” sounds intriguing…
    Will this be the exhibition where we will see pink used? or was that just a rumour… lol

  75. NataliaForgotten on May 3, 2008 at 12:22 pm

    Yeah! I started to jump here! Can’t wait to see your new works, your art is amazing…

    Love you. s2

    oh sounds so interesting! what a pity that I live like zilion miles from LA (Poland..)… But MAYBE you’ll make one exhibition here in my school – Polish Japanese Institute Of Technology. We have a lot of exhibitions here πŸ™‚

  78. antje on May 3, 2008 at 11:38 am

    CONGRATULATIONS, Mike! I am sure it will be a great success. Unfortunately I am not able to visit the exhibition (I am from germany). Wish you all the best!!!!!

    Lots of love

  82. PinkWater3 on May 3, 2008 at 11:02 am

    Awesome, can’t wait to see pictures of that. I wish I could make it, but I’m so far from L.A.

  83. lp_fm_fan on May 3, 2008 at 10:42 am

    Awesome Mike!!! I think I might actually make it! I’ll be in California during those dates! Wow, I’m excited!! πŸ˜€

    Coming all the way from Texas! w00t! My parents are taking me to California for my birthday. Eeek, can’t wait. x]

    Plus, I would really love to see your art in person, in pictures, it’s just not the same! I wanted to go to the last art show but I could not attend it, since I live in Houston. But I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to attend this one! Yes!

    Can’t wait for the DC shoes, I’m so buying it. πŸ˜€

    oh right… coughgotoyourclaninthelpumbcough ^^
