Dave Kinsey, solo show
Sept 5-7, 2013


San Francisco, CA -- FFDG is pleased to present Los Angeles based painter Dave Kinsey in his second solo show with the gallery featuring new mixed media paintings and wood sculptural works. A small selection of canvas paintings will be surrounded by 30 smaller 8” x 10” black and white chipboard paintings and a selection of rarely produced handcrafted wooden sculptures. An opening reception for this short-run show is scheduled for Thursday, September 5th (6-9pm). Beer and wine will be available.

Dave Kinsey (born 1971, Pittsburgh, PA) is an American contemporary artist and designer who lives and works in Los Angeles and Three Rivers, California. He's known for his emotionally charged paintings and murals, as well as high-visibility logos and advertising campaigns, including the ubiquitous DC Shoes logo, The Black-Eyed Peas Elephunk album icon, N.E.R.D. "brain", Epitaph Records identity and, most recently, his work with the international Absolut Blank campaign. He was named one of the 100 most influential artists of the decade in 2012 by Complex magazine. On the design side, Kinsey currently owns and runs the design studio and brand BLK/MRKT. A founding member in 1997 with Shepard Fairey and Phillip DeWolff, he later became sole owner in 2003 and co-owner in 2004. BLK/MRKT Gallery (later Kinsey/DesForges) was introduced in Los Angeles in 2001, moving in 2003 to the Culver City Art District. Kinsey also runs BLK/MRKT Editions which produces fine art prints and the lifestyle brand BLK/MRKT.

This Dave Kinsey solo show will only be on display through Saturday, Sept 7th
