We Know What Boys Like: Alex Pardee Presents Night of The Treeple

Detail of work by Alex Pardee

Alex Pardee is an artist heavily influenced by the gore and goop of horror flicks from the 1970s and 80s. He’s done album artwork and worked with Upper Playground on a series of products including art, t-shirts, hoodies, prints, bandanas, skate decks and a book, Awful Homesick. Last week we attended the release party and art show of Alex Pardee’s Night of the Treeple collection that he designed for Hurley. The party/exhibition was held at On Six Gallery at Club 6 and featured the art of Alex Pardee, as well as a host of other artists interpreting Pardee’s “Treeple,”  including Skinner, Jon Dragonette, Robert Bowen and Sam Kieth.  Pardees’ work was frightful and eerie in a beautiful way, and the timing of the launch of the collection, with Halloween around the corner, was perfect.  Another standout from the show was the photographs of Jon Dragonette.  Two of the three photos were self-portraits and he actually handcrafted the masks and props used in all the shots.  The photos were large scale and he really brought Pardee’s “Treeple” to life.  Check out more pictures from the event and the “trailer” after the jump.

    I absolutely love Alex Pardee (I’m wearing a Alex Pardee x Upper Playground tee right now!). Night of the Treeple is close to genius and this night was amazing. I haven’t bought a t-shirt in a LONG time but had to pick up the Alex Pardee x Weathermen shirt…and I’m definitely picking up a Treeple shirt.

    Thanks for posting this!
