CROSSHAIR at PRIMAVERA SOUND May 27-30, Crosshair returns to Barcelona's Primavera Sound music festival for Flatstock Europe! Flatstock features music posters and fine art prints by the very best screenprint artists in the world, converging in a maelstrom of up-all-night rock art madness. Flatstock takes place on the Primavera festival grounds and is accessible to all ticketholders. You can read interviews with many of the exhibiting artists here, including myself. Crosshair is honored to have produced the official poster for Swans' performance at the fest. It's visible at right and you can get one exclusively at Flatstock.
"80" ART PRINT Crosshair's first fine art print offering of 2015 is out now. "80" is an eight-color silkscreen print of a dockside composition in Hamburg's vast harbor, shot from a boat on a sunny day. It was produced in a limited edition of 80 and is in the store now.
WEIGHT ART PRINT Weight is the name of a big 12-color silkscreen print depicting Chicago's iconic Deering Railroad Bridge. The Deering bridge is a particularly well-preserved example of the Strauss heel bascule trunion type, and its massive counterweights can be seen from miles around. Now available directly from Crosshair.
NEW & UPCOMING...New Swans poster will be available at Flatstock at Primavera Sound in Barcelona May 27-30. Online release of any remaining copies will follow. There will be a textless art print version as well, stay tuned for info on this very limited release. We've got two new ones for Spoon: A co-headliner with Future Islands for the Vancouver show May 24 and another for two nights in San Diego June 1 and 2...both will go up in the shop the day after the shows. New Bludded Head tour poster is up in the shop now, as well as the recent of Montreal poster and "80" art print. T-shirts have been restocked, and don't forget to help us celebrate 20 years with the rad d20 embroidered patch. UPCOMING: a couple of posters for major artists I am not yet at liberty to discuss, and an announcement of a major solo exhibition in Chicago, which will feature a lot of exclusive new work.
