I had a chance to Face-time for a bit with Grammy award winner Rob Jones tonight to ask him a few questions about his upcoming show Grief: A Solo Exhibition by Rob Jones.
The opening reception will be on Thursday, July 17th from 6pm to 10pm at Galerie F in Chicago and will run for 4 weeks. RSVP to the event on Facebook HERE. The reception is free and open to the public. Original works accompanied by limited edition silk screen prints will be available for purchase at the opening reception while all remaining works will be posted in Galerie F’s online store the following Monday.
Talking with Rob is always an adventure that I look forward to because he does not have the proverbial filter when we talk. He tells it like it is, if its crude or dark he just lets it all hang out there. I respect that about him among other reasons. Read more here
About Rob Jones:
Eleven years ago Rob Jones first went out on a limb and sent some unsolicited posters he made for The White Stripes to a venue they were playing in France. The band’s manager called Jones to chew him out for using band’s name on a print without express permission to do so. And then he told Jones the band wanted to use the rogue poster for the rest of their American tour dates.
Since then, Jones has churned out some of the most imaginative screen printed posters ever to be slapped to a venue wall, many of them cleverly positioned within the confines of the Stripes’ peppermint candy color palate. And in 2011, Jones became the first member of tight-knit poster art community to take home a Grammy for his work on the White Stripes’ “Under Great White Northern Lights” box set. He accepted his award in a custom-made pink leather suit tailored after the famous Elvis Comeback Special suit seen here.
