Dave Navarro and Billy Morrison are set to have their artwork featured at an upcoming post-pandemic installation at Julien’s Beverly Hills inaugural art exhibition, Degrees of Separation.

The exhibition is being hosted by Julien’s Beverly Hills of Julien’s Auctions, the latter of whom have been at the center of some of the guitar world’s most eye-catching online auctions.

Set to showcase never-before-seen artwork from a handful of the street art world’s finest, including Blek Le Rat, RISK, Estevan Oriol and Meg Zany, the exhibition will see the sale of over 50 original pieces.

Chief among the installations is a mixed medium piece by renowned street artist Plastic Jesus titled “The Art of Noise”, which features a genuine cherry red Fender Stratocaster that appears to be melting.
