It’s always great when artists from other cities visit to share their work. Wednesday evening, Chicago’s screen printing duo Sonnenzimmer brought their incredibly beautiful and detailed screen printing work to Los Angeles, for a quick pop up exhibit and sale of their works.
Held at a sweet loft in Downtown’s Arts District (which is also the workspace for the Keep A Breast Foundation and Mike Coleman), the show was a very intimate gathering of screen print lovers, local celebrities, many cool men with beards, and even a pug to check out a very carefully selected collection of works from Sonnenzimmer. The duo shared many concert posters and other works for both bands, labels, and events that they were commissioned to interpret visually. The result saw a complicated, circuitous Ghostly International show poster, a clean and organized poster for a show by The Books, a chaotic and monotonous and almost frenetic promotion for a Fennesz/David Daniell/Male show, and a beautiful picture-within-a-picture Radio Dept. poster.
Their work is not only very, very good but their process has to be absurd as their work is incredibly detailed, looking as if they require hundreds of passes over with a screen printer in order to create them. Sonnenzimmer are doing some very, very amazing work and we wish that they were Los Angeles artists because, well, their work is phenomenal. Check out their pop up exhibit and be sure to grab some of their work here.
