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.
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
