THE CULPRIT RESEARCH PROJECT WAS FOUNDED IN 1998 BY ERIK SIADOR IN THE TOWN OF

STOCKTON CALIFORNIA. ORIGINALLY  A CLOTHING BRAND, CRP EXPANDED INTO AN ART COLLECTIVE DERIVED OF CREATIVES FROM THE CLASSROOMS OF THE ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY AND THE  SPRAWLING EARLY 2000s ART SCENE OF SAN FRANCISCO. THE CORE INITIATIVE OF THE CRP COLLABORATIVE WAS TO GIVE HIGHLY TALENTED ARTISANS  WHO WERE NOT OFFERED THE EXPOSURE THEY DESERVED FOR THEIR UNIQUELY FRESH AND NEW  STYLES OF ART AS IT WAS ALWAYS CHALLENGING TO GET EYES ON YOUR WORK FROM THE SF ART INSTITUTIONS THAT WERE HEAVLY GUARDED TO UPHOLD CLASSICAL NORMS AND ALSO CHALLENGING TO BE LET INTO THE BUSTLING GOLDEN AGE OF THE SF LOWBROW ART GALLERIES WHO RARELY OPENED UP THEIR ARTIST ROOSTERS OUTSIDE OF THE CIRCLES AT THE TIME.

FROM 2000-2005 CRP THREW MASSIVE ART SHOWS AND EVENTS THAT AT TIMES REACHED THE CAPACITY OF 2000+ AT GALLERIES AND SPACES FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO OAKLAND TO SACRAMENTO TO LOS ANGELES ALL DURING THE PRE SMART PHONE AND SOCIAL MEDIA AGE. THE EXPOSURE LEAD CRP INTO OPENING ITS CREATIVE DOORS AS A DESIGN HOUSE TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD WORKING ON VARIOUS PERIOD INNOVATIVE AND EXCITING PROJECTS.

SOON AFTER 2005 THE CULPRITRESEARCHPROJECT BECAME DORMANT AND UNTAPPED.
