Throughout the nineties, artists such as Shephard Fairey, Ed Templeton and Geoff McFetridge became part of a creative network that was hailed as the new beat generation. Taking influence from skateboarding, graffiti and independent music, their work came to define a new generation of artist born on the street.
Beautiful Losers examines the New York scene of the early 90s that spawned artists, skateboarders and film-makers also including Harmony Korine, Mike Mills and Mark Gonzales and it focuses on the telling of personal stories. It speaks to themes of what happens when the outside becomes "in" as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today's youth; a movement that has been transforming pop culture.
