Parquet Courts’ frontman Andrew Savage never stops moving.
According to DIY, Savage will hold his first art exhibit in Brooklyn, titled “Color Studies.” It’s set to run July 10 to Sept. 1 at The Shop, 181 Howard Ave., New York.
Here’s some examples of his serigraphy (silkscreen) artwork — it’s a little bit comic-book-style, a little Andy Warhol, and a little existential.
According to Savage:
“I called the show Color Studies because I wanted to focus on colors that don’t appear in my palette often; you’ll find a lot of salmon pink and pastel colors — basically stuff I’ve been afraid to use because I wasn’t quite sure how. I like images that are familiar and ordinary, but hinged on an unsettling emotion.”
According to their website, the work finds influence in John Wesley, Edward Hopper, Ray Johnson and Raymond Pettibon.
