shout out to juxtapoz for the mention. it’s so dope to get love from publications like juxtapoz, hypebeast, thehundreds,and all these amazing sites and blogs out there…thanks for helping spread the word. and by the way, i see you guys posting on the various message boards out there, too (thanks). more posts to come, as we get closer to july 12th.

i have to also say…how hilarious is the MTV article that starts with, “Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda is also an artist, it turns out.” way to stay in touch with the culture, guys.

i’ve been painting longer than i’ve been making music. ha!

    you are an artist, you are a singer and rapper and you know how to play instruments, mike you are a genius!
    and guys you are the best

    ah, the MTV mentality is what make a certain person nearly bitched about: “what is it with all the artshows and whatnot blah blah blah.. I thought they were musicians.” ‘Tis a sad, sad day when artists are allowed to one type of art only and prohibited from the rest.:-/

  3. Blaesbjerg on June 6, 2008 at 12:41 pm

    I guess almost everybody in here know that you are a artst.. Well don’t know if everybody know that you were before you began to make music, but i did xD..
    Really cool comment to those MTV guys!

  4. Fishgoingwest on June 5, 2008 at 10:38 pm

    Ya,Mike Shinoda is an artist!

  5. ShadowerLiltani on June 5, 2008 at 3:06 pm

    Hehe, aren’t music and painting, like, both, oh I dunno, ART? That’s like when people see me painting or sculpting or drawing and wonder why I want to be a writer. Like creative writing is any different from other art forms. Painting is your hobby and you chose music as your career. It’s almost like MTV was saying, “Guess what, folks, the artist is an artist!! Who’d a thunk it!”

  6. Zmazhiing on June 5, 2008 at 2:40 pm

    Hahaha, that MTV article was kinda ironic😄

  7. Ssophia on June 5, 2008 at 12:30 pm

    MTV rulez)))Well done.Funny joke…I think than you heared it you were surprized or in amaze.But it’s reason to say that you’re sometimes funny and strange,foolish crazy.(nothing personal)

  8. Madlen on June 5, 2008 at 11:07 am

    Good for you:DFor the press not mtv:DMTV sucks if they don’t know…more important is that the fans know right?I wish you luck for the art show and i think you already have it:D

  9. shinnizle_lp on June 5, 2008 at 9:39 am

    Dont worry, mtv is mtv they don’t care about anything, but every single lp fan konws that you have a major ilustration, that you have done meteora’s and ht art and how great your art work is!! i cant wait to see it

  10. asianotter on June 5, 2008 at 9:11 am

    so happy for you that you are getting the praise you deserve. just wait till Glorious opens and see what media flood is like!

    LOL! MTV is a tunnel visioned at times, but most of the time well intentioned. Oh, maybe next year they will discover that you’re a graphic artist too! hahaha!

  11. rockermeg on June 5, 2008 at 8:45 am

    Hahaa! I can imagine your next interview with MTV – “You said you’ve been painting longer than making music,that shocked a lot of us here who didn’t even know you painted…you were kidding right?”😄

    All that press is amazing news Mike!!!Things are gonna go well for you at the show!

    Lots of luck,

    Megnxx

  12. Xenith on June 5, 2008 at 8:21 am

    lol the MTV generation has surpassed there own… oooh never mind that I see new shoe piccys! 😀

    ..

    no roads left.com

  13. Doggie24690 on June 5, 2008 at 7:36 am

    And that’s why I hate MTV, haha.

  14. AS_21 on June 5, 2008 at 7:23 am

    hah! you’re just rulling the world ^^ but yeah! not everyone can be your fan who’s coming on your artshow… anyway, don’t worry we know you’re an artist for years! but beeing a musician also means beeing an artist ;P your show is gonna to be AWESOME, great, amazing, incredible etc… etc. xD

    xx

  15. fragbaitelite on June 5, 2008 at 4:56 am

    Haha, I laughed pretty hard at the MTV article. But I guess not everyone can be a Mike Shinoda fanboy/girl. I’m glad the word is getting out though. Hopefully I’ll be able to make it to the show.

  16. Kostas on June 5, 2008 at 3:48 am

    Haha…. Mtv is just Mtv, man… It’s just for “spreading the word” in my opinion…. Making music is what brought you here, however.🙂 And it’s cool you showed us those pictures from the making of your paintings… it seems you’re not always as cool dressed as in the magazine’s photos and all….🙂 It’s cool that you feel nice by showing them to us fans..

  17. axrinekey on June 5, 2008 at 1:38 am

    LOL!
    No worries!
    At least we know that you’ve work as an artist longer than as a musician🙂

  18. Jaclyn on June 4, 2008 at 10:18 pm

    Wazzup Mike! Now you should be pleased that the world gets to know you as an artist ! I remember you told that they didnt accept you as a musician untill you signed up to the big record label ))) Now everybody must take your art seriously. Btw i also spread the word as much as i can. Good luck!

  19. shinoda_me on June 4, 2008 at 10:06 pm

    OMG!!!
    LOL!!
    “Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda is also an artist!” …LMFAO!!! reminds me of that interview of yours … “i could probably hold a pencil before i could talk!” =) way to go!!!!!!!!!!! woohoooooooooooooo!!! =D

  20. ms_shock on June 4, 2008 at 10:00 pm

    I don’t have any words…. I really don’t know what to say! It’s brilliant!

  21. vanessa_6487 on June 4, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    of course you can tell u have been doing art way before this…you are not a beginner… and yeah its funny how mtv only cares about their stupid shows that shows exacly what you are potraying on “glorious excess(born) “… And of course they have to talk about you, all your work is just AMAZING… it doesn’t matter what kind of work it is… you are the best at everything that you do… love you and take…

    att. Vanessa
    xoxoxo

  22. Reem on June 4, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    more till the 12th comes? cool as.and the MTV thing was funny, they seriously didn’t know? funny world, i still get surprised when people don’t know about your art show, or even LP at times, its like mann where do you people live? lol but between you and i i like it better at times this way, it’s not as fun when,like you once said ”the idiots ruin it” or a similar way you put it,lol.any how,cheers for posting,have a great day!

  23. nillp on June 4, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    “LINK Park’s artistic Exhibition” and that’s one of the “why’s” i hate mtv.

    anyway. ‘funny’ to know that u stay searching urself everywhere.. lol

    “i’ve been painting longer than i’ve been making music. ha!”

    particularly i just want to see u doing what u’r enjoying most at the moment – since u are the master in both.😀

  24. MikeTibb on June 4, 2008 at 6:14 pm

    Wow!! Awesome shoes Mike.
    Good luck with your art show, I hope you will own like everytimes.

    See ya

  25. lynndarwinharris on June 4, 2008 at 6:10 pm

    It’s about time that the media appreciates you not only for being a musician, but an artist as well. MTV as usual is behind in the times, but at least they are giving you media. You are so talented!!! Thanks for sharing with us!!! LDH

  26. Ann on June 4, 2008 at 5:29 pm

    i cant wait to see your new paintings mike!!.
    love you!

  27. shan1105 on June 4, 2008 at 5:25 pm

    is also an artist,… doesn’t making music infer that you are an artist. that is a really dumb statement. But props to them for at least getting some press out there for you. we all know MTV only knows very mainstream info, are you really suprised?

  28. lp_fm_fan on June 4, 2008 at 5:24 pm

    lmao:

    “i see you guys posting on the various message boards out there, too (thanks). more posts to come, as we get closer to july 12th.”

    YOU LURKER! now, the question is LPUMB or LPMB? We’re all talking about it.😛

    Anywho, can’t wait for the art show Mike.

    and also, LOL @ the MTV article. You should correct them! Set them straight! ;D

  35. analoggirl on June 4, 2008 at 4:08 pm

    One more thing… When I saw the big strip of canvas, I got excited and thought you might’ve done an installation piece. Please put out an art book!

  36. analoggirl on June 4, 2008 at 4:06 pm

    “i have to also say…how hilarious is the MTV article that starts with, “Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda is also an artist, it turns out.” way to stay in touch with the culture, guys. i’ve been painting longer than i’ve been making music. ha!” You know what that means, right? You need a new backgrounder for your media kit. LOL
    Anyway, congrats on all the media coverage. I think it’s cool that you have an interest in what people are saying and thinking.

  37. cuz on June 4, 2008 at 4:05 pm

    yeah, that’s great! i can’t wait to see some new art😀 you’re brilliant😀 i just wrote kind of composition about how art can impress people and you’re art is an example in it ;D congrats man😀
