Michael Page has another stunning piece of work being released by 1xRUN, the print is titled Follow.

"This painting was part of a show that was based on the transition of life into death. The in-between place when we leave this Earth, the void. I was playing with the idea of what takes place as we parish, the moments when our soul separates from our body. This piece shows the transitions of my styles at that time in my life, morphing into something new and exciting." - Michael Page

Mike Giant 4:20 Print

No comments:

1xRUN has a new print from Mike Giant that is nice looking letterpress print titled 4:20.

"These designs fit within my “Modern Hieroglyphics” series. Last year I was studying a lot of Egyptian hieroglyphs, trying to decipher their meaning based simply on what they looked like. Then I started to look at classic American tattoo designs and corporate logos in the same way. I tried to observe them as static objects, without their current meaning. When I imagine 500 years in the future, I believe the people at that time will look at our logos and tattoo designs in much the same way that I look at Egyptian iconography. So, in a way, this series is my gift to the future." - Mike Giant

Pearl Jam Milwaukee Poster by Ben Frost, plus shirt & sticker

No comments:

Australian artist Ben Frost did his first Pearl Jam poster for the Milwaukee show tonight. Known for his kaleidoscopic Pop Art, mash-up paintings that take inspiration from areas as diverse as graffiti, collage, photo-realism and sign-writing. By subverting mainstream iconography from the worlds of advertising, entertainment and politics, he creates a visual framework that is bold, confronting and often controversial.

Stay tuned for info on the artist edition poster sale.

Jim Evans - TAZ Artist Interview

No comments:

When I first started seeing rock posters and collecting them many years ago the work of Jim Evans - TAZ stuck out immediately. Big images and brightly colored posters that demanded you look at them. The work of TAZ got your attention to see what was on that poster. Then as you looked closer you realized they had elevated the medium to another level, an art form that just being discovered all over again. Starting in 1992 and ending for the most part in 1998 they were one of the leading artists that brought the rock poster scene back from the dead. It wasn't until about 2003-2004 did I first see them along with all the other rock posters that I was discovering at the time. The TAZ 1996 Pearl Jam Charleston poster with the big spider on it was the 3rd ever Pearl Jam poster I got. Years later I found a gallery that had a bunch of the posters on display in a room with a black light and the love for the work just increased. Every TAZ poster needs to be seen under a black light.

Through the years I wondered who was TAZ, what happened to them, why did they stop making posters. It wasn't until June this year when I saw the Pearl Jam poster for Berlin did everything become clear. Being able to interview Jim Evans really was a thrill and something I never thought would happen.

What does T.A.Z. stand for exactly?
T.A.Z. is actually based on an anarchist handbook that describes a methodology of creating temporary spaces that elude formal structures of control. In the case of the T.A.Z. art collective, we made a creative collaboration, with no formal hierarchy. Although, it has lasted long enough that it no longer can be considered temporary. The original members included,Rolo Castillo, Gibran Evans, and myself. It is now more of a traveling art circus, picking up performers as we go.

1998 was the last year you created rock posters on a regular basis, what made you stop?
Over the years, I’ve gone through cycles of engagement with various forms of art. 1998 was just a random end to rock posters, music changed, and I turned my attention to other things. Now I love posters again, and will do lots of rock and other kinds of posters, even using the poster format to expand into fine art. No other form of art registers visually like a great poster – and every poster doesn’t particularly have to sell a band, a film, or a product,it really doesn’t even need to function as a poster.

The biggest question fans wonder also is what have you been doing since then?
In the 90’s I created a digital design group called The Big Gun Project that then evolved into The Independent Project. Then, we folded into Atomic Pop, eventually becoming the Division 13 Design Group. I work with a lot of my friends in Hollywood to engage people,and get them interested in seeing a film – there is a lot of creativity that never makes it to the screen.

In 2004 you were ahead of everyone when you did the Saw movie posters, were they a personal project or did you make them for someone?
I was working with Tim Palen at Lionsgatefilms; he is an amazingly creative guy who comes up with ideas that make work fun. The SAW posters were one of the collaborations I did with him. We recently worked together on special collectible posters for the SAW 10TH Anniversary release.

With the current popularity of movie posters do you have any desire to do more?
Yes, after doing a collectible for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and two new ones for SAW, I quite like the idea of doing special edition interpretations of films in poster form. I’d like to do more of those, and right now I’ve got a top secret one in the can that I’d love to show, but need to wait for the marketing to hit. It mixes rock poster with film poster, to create a unique blend. I’m working on films all the time, so drawing instead of using the computer is pretty easy – just switch chairs.

Back in the 1990's when you were doing so many posters that were so bright and eye catching with the florescent inks what would you say were your influences since there was no Internet?
When I started doing rock posters again in the 90’s, I initially decided to steal from my own underground comic and the psychedelic poster style that I did in the late 60’s early 70’s. I figured the savage ink style and irrational color choices were perfect for what was happening musically at the time. Beyond that, my main external influences were, early MAD magazine, EC comics, Tadanori Yokoo, Japanese manga, the Beggarstaff Bros, DADA, Rodchenko, Situationist philosophy, and Krazy Kat.

Friend of mine wanted to ask, is Rollo still printing your work?
At the moment he is not, but we may collaborate on something soon.

On the recent 2014 European tour you did the Pearl Jam Berlin poster. How did they convince you to do a poster for them?
I had previously done a lot of posters for them, and always enjoyed working with the band. So when they called about this new one, I jumped at the chance. Plus, Eddie is a fellow surfer, so how can I ever turn him down?

Obviously computers have made artists jobs a little easier over the days of rubylith and cutting it for the screen-printing process. Some artists still use rubylith for screen-printing. Which are you using these days?
I use illustrator now to make all the separations, I cut enough rubylith to last me a couple lifetimes. Any non-computer hands-on time I now spend on an actual drawing, can never really do that as well on a computer.

You recently had a show of your work in Los Angeles, any more gallery shows planned?
Yes, the Los Angeles show was the surf-oriented Tazbones collaboration. I was also recently in a group show in Dallas, with a hot selection of street artists, and a recent show in Taos, “Orale! Kings & Queens Of Cool.” I think that 2015 will be an interesting year, as I’ll spend more time on art and gallery shows, plus it gives me a reason to travel. There is already one being lined up for February that will display a five year chunk of my work from the mid-80’s.

Any plans to do more rock posters and what do you have planned coming up?
Right now, I’m involved in an interesting project with Ethan Browne, and I’ve got a few rock posters lined up – I try to pace myself a bit, so I have plenty of time to spend on each one. If I had more time, I’d record my own band, we put together a few songs for the Tazbones show. Also working with Pierre at Limited Runs to make more of the work accessible when it comes out.

Found out you are a big toy collector, which ones are your favorites?
Yes, huge toy collector, you could do an entire interview with me just on that, I have thousands. My collection runs from an extensive selection of Ultraman and Japanese metal robots, to the latest vinyl toys. Some of my current favorites are by Mari Inukai, Woes Martin, KAWS, Martin Hsu, Luke Chueh, and a cool new figure by Greg Simkins – favorite place to hang out is Pretty In Plastic in North Hollywood.

What are your thoughts on the current gigposter scene, any artists that catch your eye or posters?
Emek is a good friend and one of the most steady rock poster artists ever I always like his work. The Ames Bros are impressive by their scope and ability to hit every style and do it well. I see a ton of good poster art on your blog,a lot of those artists are crafting some beautiful statements.

Ray LaMontagne Santa Barbara Poster by Charles Crisler

No comments:

As the days and nights get colder seeing a poster like this Ray LaMontagne should help to warm you up a little bit. Charles Crisler talks about his inspiration for this beauty:
"This summer I spent a long weekend driving California’s Pacific Coast Highway north from L.A. to Santa Barbara. So when I was asked to do the Santa Barbara show poster for Ray’s 2014 “Supernova” tour I was over the moon!!! Aside from the visuals I grabbed on my trip, I based the poster around the lyrics, “Hitchin’ a ride down the PCH…”
And for you car nuts, that’s a ’58 Dodge Custom Royal. I wanted a late 50s rocket-inspired car and loved the two-tone paint and big fins on this guy."
The poster is  4-color screen print measuring 24 x 18 inches with a signed & numbered edition of 180. On sale at 9AM EDT at http://www.27designco.com/
