History of Supersonic Invitational
First group show took place back in 2012 and it hosted the likes of Scott C. , Cam Floyd, Steve Kim, Rik Lee, Erik Jones and many more. Many of the names that exhibited then are also a part of today’s artists’ setup. Over the course of four years, the tradition was slowly forming as the Spoke Art hosted each and every event, with the help of Supersonic Art, a growing tumblr-based art community. The number of participant began to grow, and the second show in 2013. brought us fresh new names like Andrew Hem, James Jirat Patradoon and Nimit Malavia among others. As mentioned, third annual show evolved to even larger scale event, bringing the leading new contemporary artists around the world. The following result to such fruitful practice is the 4th annual Supersonic Invitation that which will open on the 10th of January, 6 pm, at Spoke Art, and it will run until January 31st.
