Retro Lot Poster Series From Star City Art Workshop

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.
