Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros Chuck Sperry San Francisco Poster Release

Chuck Sperry is back from Italy where his The Flowers of Popular Victories multi-media art installation at the Oratorio di Santa Maria in Selaa in the remote Ligurian village of Tellaro, Italy was a huge hit, read about HERE.

Now that he is back he has a new poster for sale today, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros in San Francisco.

Chuck on the poster :
Back in the saddle, and happy to be back printing and feeling in top form with my newest Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros poster. ESMZ played the America’s Cup Pavilion in San Francisco tonight and it was a beautiful night under the moonlight, with Coit Tower shining down on everyone from the top of Telegraph Hill. The band was in good form tonight, and getting ready for their huge new pet project – “Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – Big Top” which is coming up on October 17 through 20. My ESMZ poster is inspired by Amphitrite, ancient goddess of the sea, a sailor’s goddess, paying homage to the America’s Cup and the concert setting right on The Bay at Pier 29. I realized my Edward Sharpe poster with 7 painterly layers of ink, intricate textures, and waves of heavy metallic silver and thick gold foam, suggestive of the sea but also implying waves of music washing across the listener. I worked very intensively for two consecutive print sessions to complete this one; I’m very, very happy with the resulting print! This one sold out before Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros took the stage.
 The poster is  32 x 21.5, Edition of 225, 7 colors on archival cream paper, signed and numbered

Chuck will be making a very limited online release of this poster and it’s variants on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at a random time at
