Aesthetic Apparatus

A Poster Retrospective at Subliminal Projects
Opening Reception: Sat, Feb 25th, 2006, 8pm – 11pm
Exhibition Dates: February 25, 2005 – March 25, 2006

Often considered Minneapolis’ best totally unknown design super team, Aesthetic Apparatus was founded around 1999 in Madison, Wisconsin by Dan Ibarra and Michael Byzewski as a fun side project from their “real” jobs.  In August of 2002 AA became an official functioning design studio when Michael and Dan moved and opened shop in Minneapolis. Over the years their limited edition, screen printed concert posters have secretly snuck into the hearts and minds of a small, rather silent group of socially awkward music and design nerds. Now, Aesthetic Apparatus is a full time, full-fledged, insanely unstoppable, and occasionally award winning design mega-studio. They will break your heart and drink your blood.

This Poster Retrospective is the first of its kind to exhibit in Los Angeles.  Since their existence, Aesthetic Apparatus has created over 200 of some of the most creative and innovated poster designs today. Their design work and limited edition screen-printed posters have been seen in CMJ, PRINT, HOW, Communication Arts, Rolling Stone, ReadyMade and American Handgun Lover magazine.

Shepard Fairey and Roxy Music Photos!

Shepard Fairey and Roxy Music!

Roxy Music, the UK-based band whose members included Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno, created a pop-art sound and gave it a stylish and diverse presentation. With a number of full length records and singles released throughout the 1970′s, the band has since transcended it’s origins and influenced a whole new generation of music makers. One of these artists was Steve Jones, the former Sex Pistols’ guitarist, who claims that everything about Roxy Music-their sound, their dress, their packaging- was a huge inspiration to him to pursue a career in music (of course, everyone already knows what impact the subsequent look and sound of the Sex Pistols achieved). Jones wanted to do something creative-an homage- to acknowledge this influence…

With proverbial idea in hand, Jones approached Shepard Fairey (a Roxy Music fan himself) and together, they formed ‘Swindle, Inc.’ They set out to execute their first collaborative effort, the ‘Roxy Music Print Series’. Shepard’s graphic mission was not so much as to rebrand it with his own interpretation, but to simply amplify the strong, visual identity already established by the band, many of whom were also art school graduates. The result: a stunning set of large silksceen prints, saturated with color, visual texture and the hope to inspire new fans to the sounds of Roxy Music.

“Roxy Music Print Series”- edition of 40 sets, hand-numbered and signed by both Steve Jones and Shepard Fairey; each three-color print measures 22″ x 29″, available ONLY as a complete, six print set (not available as individual prints); the price is $500 a set.

Roxy Music Prints $500.00/set
