Poster Art

This summer I’ve started getting involved with an awesome gallery called The People’s Art of Portland. It’s made up of 4 spaces at the top of Pioneer Place run by these guys who curate a lot of different shows and installations without as much hassle, restrictions and b.s. that most galleries make you deal with. Plus there’s always a fridge full of beer. Actually I don’t really know how it works, I just show up on Saturdays, but Chris Haberman, Jason Brown and Heidi Wirz seem pretty on top of things.

Besides displaying local artists, emerging artists and group shows, each month they showcase two different national level poster artists as their blockbusters. Having been there for two months worth of shows, I’ve learned about the work of 4 poster artists which are all amazing: Emek, Guy Burwell, Uncle Charlie and Furturtle. Here are some examples of their work:
