Emek's Bio

Emek's Biographical Information

Emek lives in many worlds..His art shows it. Born a decade after the 60's, he was nevertheless influenced by 60's culture and counter-culture. Emek was raised in an environment that supported his crazy artistic aspirations. Both his parents are artists too!

His first poster commission was for a unity rally after the L.A. riots of 1992. It was a concert/rally held on Martin Luther King Day. The poster was a success and Emek was on his way to bigger things.

"I appreciate the creative freedom this medium allows me because the bands generally give me total freedom as long as I advertise the show info. I am allowed to dip into the recesses of my imagination and see what spills out onto the page. This allows me to be my own art director and I am able to experiment with different concepts and styles to keep things fresh. Today's disposable culture paves the way for tomorrows nostalgia...I'm just trying to make it interesting"

Psychedelic 60's imagery collides into 90's post industrial iconography. To this collision of organic vs. mechanic worlds are added Emek's humor, social commentary and fantasy and even in the smallest details there are messages.

All of Emek's artwork is originally hand drawn, then silkscreened for the actual concerts and events. Most are printed in limited editions of 300. He signs them too! His visual style has graced music posters from BB King to the Sex Pistols! Emek has painted album covers for Neil Young and Pearl Jam as well as for many punk and alternative bands. He was invited to exhibit at the opening of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame "History Of Rock Posters" exhibition and has been featured in national and international magazines. Emek also recently painted a music cover for the Washington Post and had a alumni exhibtion at his university. His work is also permanently displayed in Hard Rock Cafe's the world over.
