Malleus, Alan Forbes and Firehouse
893 Folsom Street in San Francisco
MALLEUS, the artist collective of Urlo, Poia and Lu, the remarkable poster design team from Italy, will be unveiling their new works and limited art prints on Saturday, October 10 at ARTROCK GALLERY in San Francisco.
Alan Forbes and Chuck Sperry / Ron Donovan of the Firehouse will exhibit with MALLEUS – each presenting art prints specifically designed for the event.
In addition there will be a live print demonstration, so you will have an opportunity to acquire an exclusive art print made for you right before your very eyes.
The event is a celebration of DARK NOUVEAU, a return to the roots of poster creation.
DARK NOUVEAU evokes equally the fin de siécle style of Toulouse-Lautrec and 1960′s San Francisco Psychedelia – and operates here as a manifesto of reinvention and revision – aimed at connecting to the poster movement of the Decadent Period to the Belle Epoque and folding it into the Psychedelic Period to the present modern global silkscreen movement.
DARK NOUVEAU opens at 7pm – Saturday, October 10 at ARTROCK GALLERY – 893 Folsom Street in San Francisco.

Here’s the first poster I did for the Firehouse-Goldenvoice Poster Series.
Nick Cave played at The Warfield in San Francisco, California on September 19 and 20, 2008 with Red Sparowes.
I designed a 4 color silkscreen gig poster for this event using a very fine etching collage I created. This poster measures 26″ x 23″ and comes from an edition of 250, signed and numbered. This poster is #3 in the Firehouse Goldenvoice poster series.
