81 Bastards was founded by Tokyo-based painters MHAK and YOSHI47 in 2013. They originally formed as a live painting unit to approach the live painting platform as a place to collaborate and explore their artistic skills and desires. Over the last two years, the unit expanded to current art collective consisting of 10 members, including painting, graphic design, tattoo art, photography, DJing and filmmaking.

They are still actively performing live painting at various events and places along with their individual art work and careers.

Opening reception will be held Saturday, Oct. 31, from 6:30 to 10 p.m.
