Aaron Rose

Portrait of the Artist as a Beautiful Loser
Posted by Gestalten—10/2010

Impossible to pigeonhole, the artist, curator, writer, film director, musician, and self-declared beautiful loser Aaron Rose is one of the most inspiring characters portrayed in Gestalten's Beyond the Street book. Active and involved in everything street and art  for over 15 years, he was a pioneer in working with and introducing the likes of Shepard Fairey, Barry McGee, and Harmony Korine to a larger audience. When we met Rose during his recent trip to Berlin, where he brought some suitcases of trouble over for his show, he told us about the creative workshops he’s organized for kids, ranted about art, anarchy, kids, his work as a creative chameleon, and how he’d love to see one of exhibitions vandalized—keep it in mind the next time you spot one of his shows.
