Incredible visual art has always been an important part of the Noise Pop Festival. From our unique graphic design each year provided by such important visual artists as Shepard Fairey, Thomas Campbell and Frank Kozik to our yearly art shows featuring musicians who make art (past artists have included Yoko Ono, DJ Spooky, Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo and many others), the Noise Pop Festival puts a focus on the intertwined disciplines of art and music like no other festival does.

  • Noise Pop x FIFTY24sf present PEZ “Louder Than Bombs”. The title “Louder Than Bombs” is in direct reference to The Smiths compilation album released in 1987, the band, and Morrissey, being a personal favorite of the artist. As a long time Bay Area staple PEZ’s hand style and graffiti has been seen most places you’ve looked—but his record covers and limited edition zines have reached cult status over the last few years and this exhibition reveals what makes the underground music, art and culture of the Bay Area so special.

    About the Artist: PEZ is widely recognized around the world as one of the earliest sticker taggers in the history of graffiti, following in the footsteps of the legendary and infamous graffiti artists, Cost and Revs. He documented his experiences in with his Nikon FM2 35mm camera, and continued to post his stickers and other printed work around NYC. Today, Pez continues to make stickers and publish photography zines. Pez has exhibited in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, and Tokyo.
