Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Black & White and Read all Over’ featuring Illustrators Brad Albright, William Bubba’ Flint and Miguel ‘Miggy’ Aguilar. Illustrations are everywhere. In the papers, on the web, on products, on billboards and more. They instruct, amuse, infuriate, tell us what to buy /where to go, and overall are an integral part of our lives. The three artists we present come from three diverse areas of illustration and essentially cover all previously mentioned aspects of living in America.
This show runs through August 19, 2017
About the Artists
Brad Albright is a multidisciplinary artist, illustrator, and merch designer working with leading licenses in music, entertainment, and publishing. Guided by a lifelong love of drawing, his specialties include album cover illustration and 3D poster design for retro red/blue glasses. As inspired by music, comics, literature and movies, his line-art illustrations often revel in science fiction, horror, and Wild West genres. The pieces on display include gig posters, personal illustrations, and pop-culture inspired poster art, most of which are presented in 3D with provided glasses.
William Bubba Flint recieved his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University. His Editorial Cartoons appear in The Dallas Morning News, The Dallas Cowboys Star magazine, The Katy Trail Weekly, The White Rock Lake Weekly, Park Cities People, Preston Hollow People and Amusement Today. Flint has also illustrated six children books. Artist Statement: I describe my work as Future Paintings of the Past! I find inspiration from all areas of Pop Culture. Childhood memories constantly creep into my paintings. With a nod to Pop Surrealism, Lowbrow and Underground, I want the paintings to give a quick glimpse into a universe that almost makes you smile…
Miguel “Miggy” Aguilar has been part of the Dallas underground since the early 2000’s when he introduced his first three comic books under the title of “Mr. Zombie”. After that he started showing his lowbrow artwork at bars around the Deep Ellum area. He was invited to show in his first gallery show at Nine Eyes Gallery in the winter of 2005 where he met the artist & future gallery owner Frank Campagna of the great Kettle Art. In addition to the lowbrow ink style work that has made him a regular feature at the gallery he has continued to work in the comic book medium, done fliers for bands and is now showing interest as a fine art painter, some of which will be featured in this show.
