Drawing inspiration from themes of deep vulnerability, inner-strength, empowerment and cultural awareness, Javon Conaway brings his classic collection alongside a new body of work to tell a story within a space designed to set the viewer on a visual and mobile journey. Featuring subjects both fictional and inspired, the individuals depicted are used to tell stories incorporating the core themes of the show tapping into a style that's reminiscent of a speakeasy approach. Bold and colorful, the pieces evoke powerful emotions, leaving viewers with a sense of hope, pride and diversity.
UNDERGROUND sets off to expand upon other endeavors of Conaway’s enterprise “ARTBYJCON,” featuring a pop-up shop showcasing eclectic apparel and merchandising from the retail side of the brand, as well as collaborations focused on music, foods, beverages and community. Conaway also looks to grow the “events” platform by combining an art exhibition with a trendy and sophisticated night party vibe.
