Emek’s Retro Brilliance

As I was sitting in a bank the other day, suffering through several hours of estate/death issues, I noticed the young, lazer sharp banker had a lot of art work contrasting against the mauve cubicle walls. One, in particular, caught my eye. I snapped a pic of it and the banker gave me his card with the notation ‘www.emek.net’ on the back. So, I checked it out and found Emek’s stuff reminiscent of the 60’s. I like it. He does a variety of posters for famous musical groups. The one that caught my eye…the skeleton in a boat, rowing with a spoon inside a bottle somehow conjured up all manner of associations.

“In Emek’s posters, psychedelic ’60s imagery collides with ’90s post-industrial iconography. To this collision of the organic vs. the mechanical worlds he adds humor, social commentary and fantasy. Even in the smallest details there are messages. All of Emek’s artwork is originally hand-drawn and then hand- silkscreened for each actual concert or event, usually in limited editions of around 300.

You can order one of these before he becomes really famous, or really homeless. So far, his unique visual style has graced music posters on a diverse musical spectrum, from Blues legend B.B. King to the Beastie Boys. He has painted album covers for Neil Young and Pearl Jam as well as for many punk and alternative bands. He was invited to exhibit at the opening of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame “History of Rock Posters” exhibition and has been featured in national and international magazines. As you read this, his work is permanently displayed in Hard Rock Cafes all over.” (more
