My Favorite Kind of American by Luis Gispert (double-sided print)

OHWOW is proud to present its first collaborative project with Brooklyn based artist Luis Gispert. Gispert is a filmmaker, photographer, and sculptor, addressing a variety of topics in his work such as the infiltration of subcultures on the mainstream and the fragmented American experience. Regardless of the vehicle or message, the aesthetic leans toward theatric as his seductive imagery delivers a blend of opulent artifice with clever indications of acute subtexts. From photographs of surreal landscapes viewed from elaborate cockpits to stylized sculptures of tricked-out speaker systems, the work acts as a composite, melding what is familiar with the unexpected. Gispert's message points out the fragile balance between consummate reality and the decorated facades we tend to build around it.

Printed Double-Sided, offset 20 x 29 inches on 14 Point Cougar Cover Bright White Number One Sheet UV Coated. Each unsigned poster is numbered x/50 and will be shipped flat.
