Operating on the model of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) or wine subscription service, Art in a Box offers amazing original works of art instead of vegetables or wine. Each month subscribers receive a new work of fine art by a different local artist. Our featured artists work in a variety of mediums (ceramic, printmaking, painting, collage, digital prints, etc.) and most of them live and work in Oakland or San Francisco.
Andrew of June Box Designs came by today with new work for our Art in a Box subscribers. If you don’t know about our Art subscription service-check it out at artinabox.net We have been providing subscribers with Bay Area art for over 9 years!
Meet Andrew, our newest Art in a Box Artist. His piece will be going out to a lucky subscriber next month.
If you asked Andrew from June Box Signs in Berkeley, he would tell you "I'm just a sign painter." Upon further inspection you will see he is much more than that; a skateboarder, a musician, & a political dissident painting cries for sanity in this changing climate, calls for action against state-sanctioned terror, & song lyrics from every underground classic artist you've never heard of, all put in the context of traditional hand-painted signs, & hand-lettered showcards. Trained in graphic design & typography, Andrew takes a simple, direct, & hard-hitting approach to paint beautiful & apocalyptic phrases that the rest of the world is simply too afraid to say. But he's "just a sign painter." #artist#artinabox#juneboxdesign#oakland#thecompoundgallery#signpainter#signpainting#artwork#artistatwork
