Before Andrew Savage became the frontman of Parquet Courts, he studied painting at the University Of North Texas. He’s been behind most of the band’s iconography since their inception, and has designed the album artwork for all three (four, if we count Content Nausea) of their records. This month, he’ll have his first-ever solo artwork exhibition called Color Studies 2015, made up of silk screen work that he’s completed this year.
“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,” he said of the upcoming exhibit. “I like images that are familiar and ordinary, but hinged on an unsettling emotion.”
The exhibition will run from 7/10 through 9/1 at The Shop at 181 Howard Avenue in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. There will be a reception on opening night. You can find out more information here, and view some of his work below.
