Avec une précision impressionnante, l’artiste utilise durant l’impression de ses modèles complexes jusqu’à 9 couches de couleurs différentes, donnant vie à des motifs expressifs et criants de réalisme.

I designed and printed three separate, but matching, posters (one for each night) for Widespread Panic’s three night engagement at The Fox in Oakland.

The thematic tryptich is based on the Three Graces: Splendor, Mirth, and Good Cheer.
These classic ideas perfectly describe a good Widespread Panic show!

All three of the posters have the three dates on them.
Each one was offered exclusively for only one night.

The posters were not printed together, but each one at a time, created as three separate posters, on highest quality shimmering gold metallic paper.
I thought that in this way – everyone gets a cool poster with all the dates – but there is also that extra coolness that they are different each night.

I wanted to do something extra cool, and labor intensive, for this special Widespread Panic appearance!

I want to send out a big thank you to everyone who attended my Open Studio party at Hangar 18 last weekend! Your support is so very appreciated! It was such a great time and y’all are such great company! I want to take a moment to thank Ben and Derrick for handling the poster tables so expertly, JC and Kenny for keeping the peace and doing such a great job at the door! The Widespread Panic concert was so amazing Saturday night – thanks to Ben D. at WP Merch for his kind hospitality!

I’m very happy to announce, my Second Annual Open House at Hangar 18 Studio Gallery on Saturday, March 21, 2015 from 12 noon to 6 pm.

We had so much fun last year! I’d love to welcome the Widespread Panic family to Oakland, California and give everyone a warm welcome to the my studio. This is a great opportunity to visit the print studio that gave birth to some of your favorite posters for your favorite band. I’ll be making a Widespread Panic art show, with some special prints and rarities available!

We will be giving people random numbers at the door at 11 am, so overnight camping is not encouraged.

I’d like to reveal the first piece of my newest set of posters to commemorate Widespread Panic’s three night engagement at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California.

All three posters will be on view at my Open House but will only available through Widespread Panic at the Fox Theater (one poster per night). 

I will be making a very limited release of my Artist Editions of these posters on Sunday, March 29, 2015 at a random time on www.chucksperry.net

As a special event: I am also hosting a show of the influential French screenprinting project Le Dernier Cri. I have known this amazing creative team from Marseille for 15 years, visiting often, sharing work and stories these many years. Their work is challenging, underground, shocking and always thought provoking – and I wanted to take this opportunity to share their art with you. There will be amazing Le Dernier Cri art prints, posters and handprinted and hand-bound Le Dernier Cri silkscreened books for sale.

“There is no other publishing concern like that of Marseille based Le Dernier Cri whose stock in trade is extreme, unrepressed artistic expression. Founded in 1993, emerging from the ashes of the “underground zine” movement of Paris in the 1980s, Le Dernier Cri has published well over 150 books, the majority of which are still hand printed using the silkscreen press, making them small works of art, which they continue to sell for peanuts. The publishers work their derrieres off to gather and promote art which is too far outré in it’s emotional or psychological content, violent or vulgar to have a place in the commercial world of comix (except as influences), and many of these artists would probably remain unknown until they died and someone found their apartment full of shocking works. LDC have promoted the careers of so many artists that I can’t even begin to describe their place in the international underground world of graphic art.”

“The fact that Le Dernier Cri produce, publish and screen print their own books and posters, as well as create their animated films themselves, is so rare that it qualifies them as candidates for the bug house too, in my book. Nonetheless, shouldn’t they receive some kind of civil service award for this effort? Please buy as much of their product as you can!”
