Dan Funderburgh
Mike Perry

at the
Andrew Rafacz Gallery

Chicago, IL 60607

Friday, August 6, 2010 – 6-9pm

Both in their art and their attendant values these artists work tirelessly to sustain cultural entities. They blanket space with meaning and convert square footage into bold proclamations. The music world reaps the rewards of Sonnenzimmer‘s subtle, painterly gig posters while the apparel industry appropriate’s Mike Perry‘s electric zine hallucinations into backpacks and Nike dunks. Both Dan Funderburgh and Seripop explore the limits of spatial adornment, Dan through the design of delicately intricate wallpaper that balances Moorish mosaic with American op art, and Seripop via enormous street poster collages, a medium they have evolved from their monstrous rock posters and describe as “the ‘skin’ of a city, growing and shedding organically.”
