Chicago : 7.26.14

by David D'Andrea July 23, 2018

 

Jared Metzner and I grew up together in a place called Bristol, Connecticut. Through our high school years we spent nights collaborating on zines and comics, searching for new means of expression through crude photocopies and screen prints.chicago_invite_web
Now, some 20 years later, Jared resides in Chicago as a tattoer and painter. His cast plaster objects and large abstract landscapes are a deep inspiration to me, revealing notions that can only be understood through of a lifetime of shared lines.
I'll hang a collection of originals inks and will have posters and small print sets for sale. I printed a new three card set on the letterpress for the occasion.
The event is one night only, so Chicago, if you hear me please come out!!!
