Featuring artwork from members of NOFX, The Vandals, The Adicts, Pennywise, Flogging Molly, Agnostic Front, Strung Out and more, the LA art show is back after an enforced two-year hiatus.
Punk Rock & Paintbrushes Art Show returns for its sixth year, with its grand opening night and red carpet artist reception taking place on Saturday, December 11 at The Lazarus Experience in downtown Los Angeles.
Punk Rock & Paintbrushes has become a popular fixture on the LA arts calendar over the years and is known for bridging the gap between music and art with its extravagant art shows.
This annual art exhibition celebrates the fine art and photography of creatives who share a passion for both music and art. Punk Rock & Paintbrushes is an all-ages, event featuring artwork from musicians Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals, Jim Lindberg of Pennywise, Jason Cruz of Strung Out, Matt Hensley of Flogging Molly, Eric Melvin of NOFX, Mike Gallo of Agnostic Front, Monkey Adicts of The Adicts and other artists from professional skateboarders to tattoo artists, visual artists to photographers.
“In the Punk Rock & Paintbrushes world, to me, it’s kind of like every day is Christmas,” Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals says. “It was especially feeling like Christmas this year because we put out a book with 29 wonderful artists sharing their stories and that was like 29 Christmas presents. As far as I know, there’s nothing like this event and I’m very proud to be involved with it.”
The event’s grand opening night reception will be open to the public from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm on Saturday, December 11 and will feature signings from featured artists, music throughout the night from special guest DJs including Josh Freese (drummer for The Vandals, Devo, Sting and Mama Troy,) and Noodles of The Offspring, as well as live music from members of The Bombpops, The Aquadolls, and Sitting On Stacy.
Emily T. Nielsen, founder of Punk Rock & Paintbrushes says, “Coming back after two years, we are excited to host our highly anticipated holiday show and are more than ready to bring beautiful art to our community and to be benefiting amazing non-profits such as Rock To Recovery and The Alexandria House with the help of TUK Shoes.
“This year we were so grateful to publish our coffee table book and bring our story inside your homes… we hope that this holiday season we can share our stories even more in person on December 11 in LA.”
The Lazarus Experience is located in the Fashion District of downtown Los Angeles, less than a mile from the Staples Center at 224 E. 11th St., Suite 501, Los Angeles, CA 90015.

I’m a London born and bred music journalist, a mediocre bass player and the occasional strummer of the guitar. In the ’80s I worked in recording studios and made a few records you’d probably recognise. I have written a couple of books and made the odd media appearance as a music commentator. I now call Brisbane home.
