Art in the Moment: the gig posters of Justin Walsh

General art-related discussion.

Postby wneff on Wed Feb 26, 2014 4:23 pm

Justin Walsh is a designer and screen printer from San Francisco. He is making some of the most radical and divergent gig poster art I have seen recently. This guy totally deserves his own thread.

ISO the Swans posters as well... maybe some more will turn up...

no signatures or numbering on any of his posters keeps things mysterious

For the record, other folks in the community deserve credit for discovering and talking up Justin's art early on. I am a relative latecomer to his work, just felt like getting a discussion thread going. He has a nice portfolio of images already, and I'd like to think there are more on the way...

I have that Melvins poster, and it is AMAZING. His work is a pain to track down though (or it was when I picked up the Melvins poster). I remember when it showed up on Gigposters back at the time of the show, I tried to get a copy. I had to email Justin a couple of times just to find out he didn't even have copies of it to sell. Few months later he had a group of his posters show up at Secret Serpents, and I grabbed it then, but I think it was around $50, not cheap for a show poster. Really admire his posters, I wish I had more than just the one.

codefish, if you are talking about the most beautiful and amazing melvins print ever and decide one day that you no longer need it, hit me up...I would give a kidney for it..I really wish Justin did more prints and we knew a little more about his creative process etc....
