Fatherless present their first London exhibit ‘Alternative Facts’

About

We make prints. Bold colourful silk-screen monoprints. As a group we try to push back against the constant barrage of imagery and frenzied sales pitches that compete for our attention everyday. Our process allows us to manipulate the manipulators through appropriation, satire and the democratic art of print. Our backgrounds in graphic art and commercial printing give us the tools we need to fight back against “our consumer driven, media saturated, disposable culture” through positive creative will. We are inspired by Sister Corita and Grandmaster Flash.

Launching Thursday 6th April, 7-10pm, free entry

Opening Hours: 7th April – 1st May 2017, 9am-5pm daily, free entry

 

ABOUT

Fatherless is a print collective from Rockford, Illinois, that started in 2010. They have gained international attention with their print, installation and commission work using a lurid palette and bold graphic sense. The members operate as a unit collaborating freely with each other’s ideas and imagery. This process does not reveal any individual artist or “father” but rather an amalgam of the whole. Each piece is a one off monoprint that will never be repeated. The collective power of the five individuals allows for a wide range of ambitious projects that satirizes what they see as “our consumer driven, media saturated, disposable culture” Artists consist of Jarrod Hennis, Javier Jimenez, Greg Lang, Dave Menard and Londoner Ben Rider.
