Speaking of Italy...

... My first European solo show will open on March 22nd, 2012, at the Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea (Milan, Italy).

The show, inspired by the mysteries of childhood discovery, will consist of small paintings all framed in vintage frames, and one LARGE complex piece that will anchor the show.  The small scale of the pieces is in keeping with childhood objects: trading cards, comic books, toys, etc.

The show is tentatively called "OURS", and a preview of the title piece appears below.

For inquiries about the show and the work, please contact Antonio Colombo at info@colomboarte.com.

Bologna art first

This weekend marks my first appearance in an international art fair, as Bologna Art First opens this Friday (running from January 27 to 30th) in Italy.

Antonio Colombo of the Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea (Milan, Italy) asked me to be a part of his booth this year.  In addition to European artists, Mr. Colombo will feature a handful of North American artists, including my two favorite Gary's, Taxali and Baseman.

Two new pieces (designed as one continuous piece), painted specifically for the fair, appear below.

Typography Sketchbooks book

I was thrilled to have been asked months ago to contribute to the new "Typography Sketchbooks" hardcover book by Steven Heller and Lita Talarico  (published by Princeton Architectural Press, NY).  I was even MORE thrilled to have received my copy in the mail this week...

The book is broken down by artist, and contributors range from designers, artists, illustrators, cartoonists, you name it.  Its a wonderful volume of preliminary typography sketches and ideas from contemporary creatives like Ross MacDonald, Louise Fili, and Javier Mariscal to name a few.
