Star City Art Workshop is a partnership that was founded in the spring of 2017 as a bit of a courting gesture between two artists. Describing what each brings would take too long so let’s just say there is one hell of a synergy when you cross an artist with an outlaw, a nurturer with an activist, a dreamer with a lover. These prints are born out of a basement in Star City, West Virginia.
This entire series featured below is available on eBay.
This print was inspired by ACDC Bag and other visual imagery that feels Phishy Its creators enjoy expanding the visual language associated with the band, and sometimes reach out there to push that. This one has direct lyrical references as well. The feel is edgy, and the time within which this was created was pretty darn edgy, and still is socially and politically. Feel the parallels between the narratives in the early Phish lyrics and the story we are all living in history together. There are references here of great tension and decisiveness, consequence, reality of mythic proportions. And that is where this print operates from. Colors: burnt sienna red and green/yellow smearprint and green.
Many of these prints have a story to tell. The imagery is venue-inspired with the Georgia Peach.
Amy’s Farm was the first in a series of nine throwback prints for early shows, now referred to as the “Phish 1.0” era.
This print features UNH school colors and reference to the theatrics of trampoline jumping on stage. Phish are a beautiful embodiment of theatrical-artist-type musicians and youthfulness. So playful in spirit even when paired with all the intellectual brilliance. There is a reference also to holes here. And just a letting go.
Alone on the fairgrounds, a sinister Armenian man lurking in the background, Esther looks at us with haunted eyes, standing in the water that would swallow her life while clutching the puppet on her right. The story of Esther comes to life in this new 11″ by 17″ masterpiece from Augury Press. Never before has Phish’s tragic little heroine been immortalized so beautifully. Inspired by Art Nouveau and the works of Alphonse Mucha this piece is the next great installment in a series that includes Tela, and the perfect pairing of the Winter Queen and Fuego. This hand drawn digitally painted print is a must have for fans of one of Phish’s oldest tales as well as phanart collectors. Available now on Etsy for only $15. Order yours today!
