Following his highly-successful 2008 show, Glorious Excess (Born), Mike Shinoda returns to the National Museum to unveil his latest collection of paintings and digital works. Larger, broader, and more sensational than before, Glorious Excess (Dies) is the next chapter in his series exploring society’s obsession with celebrity culture, consumer addiction, and fascination with excess.

Shinoda’s new works continue to evolve, blending his personal experiences in the spotlight with social commentary and fine art technique while expanding his signature visual vocabulary, juxtaposing symbols of death, money and sex against vibrant neo-pop imagery. In an age where superstardom dominates the media, Glorious Excess (Dies) immortalizes consumption, fame and wealth, challenging the viewer to question what is real.
