The Lowbrow Art Sale: Tim Biskup, Joe Ledbetter & Scott Campbell

Tim Biskup "Asylum #4"

Tim has an upcoming exhibition at the Addict Gallerie in Paris. I'm not sure if there will be any new prints from this show, but there is one available from an exhibit he had this past year at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. The piece on display at the Levine had the same amazing colors that Tim is known for, but this time he used a lot more geometric shapes to define the figures and subjects in each one of the paintings. The print from said show is a whopper, not only in image size (24" x 26"), but the specs as well. It is a 55+ color serigraph on archival paper. That is intense! It isn't often that you get screen prints that are that complex. The print is signed and numbered in an edition of 100, with only 50 available from the gallery. Get It Here.

Joe Ledbetter "Flying Sabercat" & "Flying Wolf"

In the past week, Joe released a couple of new prints, and sadly, the larger one is sold out already. So the one I am featuring here is actually a print set: you get two prints for the price of one. Each is 8" x 10" on heavy watercolor paper, signed and numbered in an edition of 100. The set goes for less than $60 as well, which is a killer deal for two prints. These are sure to sell out quickly as well so head on over. Get It Here.

Scott Campbell “Great Showdowns (of the 8-Bit Era)” vol. 2

A Paper Tiger has released a new print from the recent “I Am 8 Bit” show, this new one is from Scott Campbell and is another set of Great Showdowns. “Great Showdowns (of the 8-Bit Era)” vol. 2 features 5 mini 3″x 5″prints, with each set limited to 30. I can see a showdown from Punch-Out, Dig Dug and...what else do you see? These prints are really great, I love the style Scott Campbell has, he addresses my nostalgia with just the right eye candy. Get It Here.

Tom Haubrick "Clouds"

I am a huge fan of the work of Tom Haubrick. He was in the B Movie show that I curated and will be in one I am curating this coming March as well. I love the underground comic book style that he has. He really knows how to handle ink washes, and keeps on coming up with great ideas. This print is a old one from A Paper Tiger, but I thought I would show it so I could introduce Tom to the Lowbrow Art Sale audience. The print is 11" x 14" in an edition of only 10. If you dig his work as much as I do, put it on your walls! Get It Here.

PØBEL "Monsters Prefer Blondes"

This print comes from "Handmade Posters," a site run out of Bergen. A majority of the prints on display from these guys come from street artists, and you can see the influence in each of the works featured on the site. This one is from an artist that goes by the name PØBEL (pobel). I really dig the ink splattering, crazy punk rock style lettering here, and of course, Frankenstein wearing a Marilyn Monroe wig. The print is limited to 100, and is a three-color serigraph. Get It Here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
