Art in the Dancehall – the exhibition curated by Al Fingers and Suze Webb celebrating illustration and design in Jamaican music, from 1979 to the present day – recently hit Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles.

That meant that also some work from SEEN’s GABE was displayed at Shepard Fairey’s gallery and it means that if you are interested in in buying some of his prints or work from other Art in the Dancehall artists like Daniel David Freeman, Denzil “Sassafras” Naar, Ellen G., Jamaal Pete, Peter Edward, Robin Clare, Tony McDermott or Wilfred Limonious, you should head over to the Subliminal Projects online store.
