Firehouse is organizing a series of shows for the Italian artists, Malleus, in San Francisco in October:
MALLEUS Rock Art Lab, the artist collective of Urlo, Poia and Lu, the sensational poster design team from Italy, will be attending The Rock Poster Society’s Hall of Flowers Festival of Posters this year.
This is their first visit to San Francisco, and it is their first tour of the United States.
They will be releasing their first book at the Hall of Flowers on October 11 entitled “The Blood of the Mountain Is The Hammer of God,” cataloging a decade of their uniquely beautiful poster and art designs. Many of their posters will be on display and available for sale. This will be a great opportunity for American collectors to view their amazing design and printing skills up close.
The Rock Poster Society is very proud to play host to Malleus; it’s a clear indication that The TRPS Hall of Flowers Festival of Posters has grown into an international event.
The Malleus collective very excited to come to San Francisco, which they refer to as the “Capitol of Rock Posters;” and Malleus’ growing number of fans here in the USA are excited to see their work and the artists live. Their brilliant posters from Italy, inspired equally by the fin de siÃ¨cle style of Toulouse LaTrec and 1960’s San Francisco Psychedelia, indicate that the present rock poster movement, which started in San Francisco, is sweeping the world.
Malleus will also be appearing for an evening with Malleus at Artrock Gallery on October 10 at 7pm – 10pm, and at a book release party at the 540 Club located at 540 Clement Street, San Francisco on October 16th sponsored by Green Apple Books.
