This month we have a really different
design from our normal stuff...
this one is NOT die-cut.. it is a solid rectangle.. and it features the
retro-cool and awesome art of CRAIG 'SKIBS' BARKER
from Costa Mesa,CA. Skibs is an awesome guy...he is a well respected artists
in the Orange County area of California..but world wide is recognized
as the Drummer for the retro punk band THE STITCHES
, who started in the OC area in the early/mid 1990's... they have toured
the country and Europe a few times and still continue to play super fun
and punishing live shows. Craig grew up in Southern California during
the early 80s and the explosions of both punk rock and surfing culture.
With a healthy dose of punk flyers, album covers, and surfing magazines
buzzing through his head, Craig began making flyers and t-shirts for his
friends and his own punk bands. Fast-forward to today; Craigs most
recent paintings infuse his long-standing love for painting and rendering
the human female figure with his punk fueled graphic design. Mixing different
approaches, techniques, and mediums, he creates a sense of memory, personal
history, and appreciation for the female form. Combining elements of pop
culture, literary censorship, and a positive mental attitude, he creates
layered scenes of voyeuristic mischief. Craigs work explores the
junctions between past and present, memory and imagination, fantasy and
reality, while creating a dialog between image and viewer. Craig has shown
work and done installations at venues around So.Cal including Thinkspace
Gallery, C.A.V.E Gallery, Art Whino Gallery, & Kinsey/Desforges in
Los Angeles. He has a website with links to his happenings and access
to his paintings at www.skibsart.com
