About the Work
Marching Band Does It Again is the first time a Leo Gabin painting has been made into a print. The original 80" x 60" piece was part of their second solo show "Tallahassee" at Peres Projects in Berlin. The exhibition was centered on Leo Gabin's first feature film A Crackup At the Race Riots, based on the eponymous novel by Harmony Korine. While the book never localizes itself with a specific place, Korine has mentioned that the story took place in and around Florida. Marching Band Does It Again encapsulates the essence of the Sunshine State: while initially bright and warm, the graffiti-like strokes overlay classic black-and-white photography, conveying the paradox of suburban angst, a notion often replayed within the work of Leo Gabin.
The three artists behind the Belgian-based collective Leo Gabin —Lieven Deconinck, Gaëtan Begerem, and Robin De Vooght—have been working together since the early 2000’s and regularly experiment with a variety of media to explore the transience and capriciousness that underpins youth culture. Posts culled from websites, images shared in online forums, and video clips disseminated through social media often serve as the foundation for their video mash-ups, collages, and silkscreens. Transformed, clipped, and reconstructed, the resulting images confront the classical notion of artistic ideation and the inherent ephemerality and mercurial nature of contemporary online media. Leo Gabin has had solo exhibitions at Elizabeth Dee Gallery (New York), The Cultural Centre (Belgium), Peres Projects (Berlin), and the Kunstraum Mueenchen (Munich). Group shows include those at Spovieri Gallery (London), Museo Di Capodimonte (Naples, IT), and White Cube (London).
Authentication & Resale

All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
