If I was a barber …
… I would have scratched a notch in the mirror frame for every soul who made me blow-dry his emo haircut… and shortly before I would have sorted the ground-down razor out, the haircut fashion turned to the better… And as it is nearly always the music that brings the styles into the hairdressers’, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis have a huge impact on this turn. A tin of hair grease and the obligatory flick comb adorn my poster for the Berlin concert.
To really arouse the interest of a nowadays audience, it requires special measures… or Olli Schulz, who since very recently whips up “feelings from the ashes”. The 2015 tour poster was printed with 3 colors in an edition of 200 pieces.
For those of you who’d like to put a bike up on their wall next to all the posters, I found the missing link: the Douze Bike Skull combines screen printing design with bike passion. My art print is available in 5 different colors. Optically, it reminds strongly of Mexican death masks – the thrill is in the details…
In Hamburg, Eppendorfer Weg 235, the “Only Art Club”, a gallery for contemporary art, opened its doors end of February. They put a special focus on screen printing. The Douze studio is represented with some posters of Lars P. Krause.
“Spindmädchen”, an exhibition with rare and new, exclusive Lars P. Krause / Douze pin-up art prints is taking place in Chicago, Galerie F, 2381 N Milwaukee Ave till mid-April.
In May, the new posters from the Douze Studio can be purchases at the Primavera Festival Flatstock in Barcelona. The Colored Gigs exhibition series goes to the next round with some innovations as well. For now, let me just say: It’s gonna be exciting!
