alefort 2017

April 2, 2017

Last weekend I had the opportunity to participate with the Swell Artist Collective in the Alefort Art Show which was part of Treefort 2017, a five day indie rock festival in downtown Boise.

The collage briefly touches on the origins of beer and methods of production. My favorite part of this piece is the close up of the golden bubbly beverage that I used for color and texture in the background. The black and white drawing of hops is pretty cool too.

It's title is Beer Belongs... Enjoy It! after an old advertisement I found in Life Magazine from 1947. This well-known ad campaign was created by the United States Brewers Foundation and ran from 1945-1956 (Brooks).
 


Prints of this beer themed piece will be available through April 15. Click here to buy one for yourself. I will gladly ship it for only $5! Email me for details on how to buy the original. It is also for sale!
