Thirty Years of the Screaming Hand: A tribute to the artist Jim Phillips

image

In 1985, in a small art studio on the Eastside of Santa Cruz, CA, Jim Phillips Sr. was creating images that unbeknownst to him would affect generations of artists and skateboarders to come. Of all of the iconic imagery that Jim has created; the Screaming Hand logo has stood the test of time. Thirty years after its inception, the Screaming Hand still remains an unmistakable symbol of youth and skateboard culture.

In honor of Jim Phillips Sr. and the Screaming Hand logo, 48 of the world’s most influential artists of the
past 30 years have been invited to interpret and pay homage to this iconic image. Each artist’s interpretation of “The Hand” will be on display.

Denial – Studio Visit

While we were out in the States, Canadian artist Denial was recently over the border in Detroit for his part in the 1xRun ‘Murals in the Market’ project. We caught up with him there and skipped back over the border to check out his studio in Windsor, just across the water from the Motor City. Currently he shares his artist’s playground of a studio with the director of Australian print company Stupid Krap, Ben Frost, when he’s in the country.

In his own words, Denial takes us on a photo tour through his studio and neighbourhood…

Anthony Lister paints a large mural in Detroit

anthony_lister1

During his current US tour that included a solo show in Miami, Anthony Lister recently visited Detroit to work with 1xRun and Inner State Gallery. Along with other projects that are yet to be announced, Australian artists painted this 100 foot long mural just down the street from their offices.
Working his way with rollers and limited palette, our cover artist (issue #19), created this great signature piece continuing his superheros series of works. Through repetition of shapes and contours, Lister created the illusion of dynamics in this expressive piece. Bordering with abstraction, this large mural is an example of his creativity and refreshing style to be seen on the streets.
