I’m really excited to announce that two of my paintings, Human 1 and Human 4, will be reproduced on shirts for Denver’s Stoic Dissention. They play progressive, innovative doom metal and thought that my art fit well with their music, and it does. Up until this point, most of my work for musicians has been custom pieces primarily done in ink, so I am glad to have been part of this, as both an experience with new people as well as an opportunity to reproduce my paintings on apparel.
Ambient + Human – Two Painted Series by Brian D’Agosta opens on Friday, September 21, 8 p.m. at TRVE Brewing, 227 Broadway, #101, Denver. I am so excited for this opportunity to show my work as painted and presented in a unique and beautiful space that honors both our creativity.
This series is entitled Human. I wanted to explore a few different design ideas such as color, decorative element, and form and have them be consistent throughout this series. I chose my standard type style and revisited a variation of it that I used to use a lot, where the forms might be more hieroglyphic as well as having a modern pictoral form similar to mechanical objects or medical equipment. I chose red and black to be alternating colors and used silver ink for the detailing. Lastly, the human elements are just a device to tie everything together and give it more of a grounded feeling.
