Synchronicity Space presents Explorers Club, the second solo show in Los Angeles from artist Will Sweeney. The opening reception will be held October 13th from 7 to 10pm with the artist in attendance.  The exhibition will remain on view through November 10.

Explorers Club brings together documentation of recent excursions to inner and outer space by Will (previously unseen in the US) original comic art, character designs, and two recent large scale pencil drawings inspired by Bosch, Breughel, 2000AD comic and Michael Moorcock.
The show will also be the official launch of the Captain Mindseye zine, co-published by Will’s label, Alakazam and Swiss Imprint, Nieves. It’s a 24 page collection of images detailing the adventures of Captain Mindseye, secret agent of the subconscious. The Captain Mindseye box set of six silkscreen prints will also be available in limited numbers.

Will Sweeney is a London-based Illustrator and graphic artist specializing in comics, clothing graphics, animated videos and music packaging. Will has collaborated with a variety of labels/bands/TV shows & publications including: Silas, Stussy, Undercover, Amos Toys, Wonder Showzen, Yo Gabba Gabba, Nieves Books, Beck, Architecture In Helsinki, Birdy Nam Nam and The Wire magazine. He also is known for his comic series ‘Tales From Greenfuzz’ and the accompanying vinyl toys, and also for Alakazam – his t-shirt and print label. Will has exhibited his work in galleries around the world. In 2010 ‘The Parachute Ending’ music video for Birdy Nam Nam by Will Sweeney & Steve Scott was selected as one of 25 finalists for the YouTube play exhibition at New York’s Guggenheim Museum.

PFFR has created a New Yorker style cartoon for the newspaper that is Synchronicity Space’s exterior wall.  29 liners I Daily Dose I Car-toons I Daily Dueces will coincide with EXPLORERS CLUB.  The caption will change daily, giving insight, learning, and butt humor to our wretch-filled lives.  Remember looking over your father’s shoulder, as he laughed at Andy Capp?  Well, we hate your father.

PFFR is the collective corpse behind such bodular treasures as the televisual Wonder Showzen, Xavier: Renegade Angel, and The Heart, She Holler.  This suck-sess is on the shoulders of previous victuals –  PFFR has dabbled in other food court options like music (United We Doth on Birdman Records) and the other thing people call “art” (LFL Gallery in NYC, Synchronicity Space in Los Angeles, and then sum).

Synchronicity is an art gallery, but in practice it is so much more. Located in East Hollywood in Los Angeles, its doors are open to a community of contemporary thinkers whose goal is to make thoughtful and intelligent work without limiting themselves to a specific medium.
Gallery hours are Thursday – Saturday, 1 – 7pm.
