"Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde


Being one sixth of one of the most talked about rock bands of the twenty first century isn't enough for Mike Shinoda, proved by the opening of part one of his art show Glorious Excess. Part one, Born, will be on display at the Japanese American National Museum in LA from July12th until August 3rd and all proceeds go toward the Michael K. Shinoda Endowed Scholarship at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California

Born is the story of a nameless celebrity famous for doing nothing in particular and his decadent lifestyle. It is a nod toward the growing obsession with the celebrity and the ease with which people become famous.


The exhibit is partly based on Shinoda's own experiences as a celebrity and a member of a band that have spent a lot of time in the spot light over the last decade, positively and negatively. In 2007 lead singer Chester Bennington's life was turned upside down by a fan who stalked him, interfering with his emails and phone calls as well as contacting his friends and family. She is now doing time in jail, but it would hardly be surprising if this was at least some inspiration to Shinoda.

In an interview with ultimate-guitar.com Shinoda described the main character as "super rich, kind of dangerous and does not give a crap and he's got this sex, drugs and rock n roll and he's not really talented at anything except being a celebrity. He's great at being famous."


It would be easy to call the exhibit condescending - for Shinoda to base an exhibit on the rock star lifestyle of somebody who was boosted to fame by love from the public would be ironic at best but it's hard not to admire Shinoda for his work.

Shinoda has kept fans updated on all things to do with Glorious Excess on his blog www.mikeshinoda.com, where he also posts updates about his up-and-coming DC Remix shoe release. The release of the shoes coincide with the art show and are based on pieces featured. They are available to purchase on August 1st.

Check out the Art section of the website for a sneak peak at the making of Glorious Excess and the Video section to watch an exclusive video, Sirens and Silence, which was shot by Shinoda himself and goes hand in hand with the story behind his art work.

Shinoda will return to the National Museum on January 24th with the second part of the exhibit, Dies.
