    Default EMEK art opening @ Peoples

    EMEK will be our feature artist at Peoples art of Portland, and will be in the entire gallery. He will have 250+ posters, handbills, art prints, and OG's. The show opens Sept 15th from 5-9pm. The show will be up until Aug 14th.



    Emek has been referred to as "The Thinking Man's Poster Artist". Coming from a unique family of 5 artists, Emek has made his mark creating special limited edition silkscreen posters for live concerts around the world. Emek’ style thrives on attention to detail, coupled with layers of meaning in the artwork. His infusion of socio-political commentary into pop culture imagery has made his work instantly recognizable in the field. Emphasizing craftsmanship, his work is mostly hand-drawn in the tradition of the classic psychedelic posters from the 1960's. Born in the 70's Emek was also strongly influenced by the DIY punk flyers of the 80’s. "I appreciate the creative freedom this medium allows me because the bands generally give me total freedom as long as I advertise the show info. I am allowed to dip into the recesses of my imagination and see what spills out onto the page. This allows me to be my own art director and I am able to experiment with different concepts and styles to keep things fresh. Today's disposable culture paves the way for tomorrows collectable nostalgia...I'm just trying to make it interesting" Over the last 2 decades, Emek has created hundreds of posters for some of the top alternative bands and events, like Radiohead, Coachella, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, System of a Down, Jane's Addiction, The Flaming Lips, to name a few, as well as album covers from Neil Young and Pearl Jam to Henry Rollins and Erykah Badu. Emek's work has been shown in galleries across the United States, Berlin, London, Tokyo, Belgium and Canada. He has been interviewed on CNN, featured in dozens of magazines and books, including covers of Juxtapoz magazine.

    Peoples Art of Portland Gallery has been active since November 2010.* It is a project of gallery spaces gifted to the curators from GGP, the management company for Pioneer Place Mall.** Since its inception, the galleries have been well traveled, showing 1000’s of Portland artists in a very unique and professional setting.* Annual shows include “The Love of Portland”, “The Big 200” and resident international poster artist, EMEK. *We love the mall and its accessibility to anyone the open market place allows.* Art doesn’t have to be hard to see, or backed by white walls, it can be simple in its beauty and cultural appeal – its as easy as walking into a mall.
