AJAX GARCIA To Exhibit Rare KISS And NEW YORK DOLLS Art In Los Angeles

On Thursday, May 21, 2009, rock fans can expect a special treat from NAPOLEON BLOWNAPARTS frontman Ajax Garcia. The musician/media artist who is responsible for creating the famous KISS Icons designs will be on hand to represent the Eerie Pop Industries brand by sharing his latest work with the public.

Displayed work includes original KISS sketches from the 1996 "Reunion" tour and the "Hostage Girl" piece, an Ajax original from the official 2004 NEW YORK DOLLS tribute album "Jet Boys Of Babylon".

The "Hostage Girl" design was originally licensed for CD packaging and promotional materials by American imprint F.L.R. in 2004. The piece and designer quickly became the center of controversy after the artist (Ajax Garcia) was forced to alter his work by covering up partial nudity to fit the retail market place. A move the designer disagreed with stating, "I design under the First Amendment."

The "Hostage Girl" design depicts a nude woman with her hands and arms tied behind her back with her mouth gagged.
