David Welker Coney Island Self-Portrait & More Art Prints Release

What's happening with David Welker you wonder, well I'll let him tell you.

"As we say farewell to another Summer the anticipation of a new concert season, a new gallery season and the spectacle of ComicCon all propel us on to a different kind of adventure. Before I reveal my concert posters both slated for post Halloween I’d like to close one long chapter in my recent history. The first piece I created for my Hoerle-Guggenheim retrospective was titled “Coney Island” and the choices made in that piece paved the way for the rest of the show. I wanted to create a pictorial narrative and also break that picture plane at the same time. This piece accomplished both concepts more than any other piece from that show. So I’d like to offer this as a print edition along with my tortured self portrait from that time period which depicts the feeling of preparing for a 30 year retrospective show in a huge gallery space with less than a year to prepare and just about every other challenge life could throw at me. This will formally and officially close the Hoerle-Guggenheim editions. I truly appreciate the love and support I received for this show. Both editions will be released this Wednesday at noon Eastern time in my website store.

Now fast forward one day and we are at another vast ComicCon event with the Bottleneck crew holding center court as usual. Unsurpassed again as the preeminent pop culture gallery in the world. It's always a thrill to see what they bring to this event. And as usual I am the oddest thing that they’ll be showing because once again I’m offering an abstract painting print edition. This time a very colorful piece titled “Mind Excavation”. Hand deckled, signed and numbered and embossed in an intimate edition exclusively for ComicCon.

As we head towards Halloween I’m working on one of the most intense landscape drawings I’ve ever done. I hope to have it ready for an Autumn release. In November I’ll have two ambitious concert posters I’m currently working hard to complete. Early December we jump to sunny Miami for Art Basel.

And as we look forward to another Phish invasion of Madison Square Garden this New Years Eve I am hoping to host an open house event with new work and a special Gamehendge piece I’ve had on my mind for 27 years about a certain Colonel climbing a certain mountain. Let’s see what happens." DW
