Dewey Saunders brings his shining design to San Diego with solo exhibition, Big Wave
Graphic design favorite Dewey Bryan Saunders is making his way to San Diego for a special solo exhibition, Big Wave, at Sherman Heights’ Good Friday Gallery on June 22nd.
Regarded as one of the most innovative and versatile graphic designers currently in the field, Dewey Saunders’ commissioned credits extend as far as work with Anderson .Paak, Future, and Lil Uzi Vert, though it’s the artists own visual art that has established him as a mainstay in the artworld.
With a distinctly cohesive and warm-toned take on mixed media––including the extensive use of vibrant collage work impeccably hand-placed over softly painted gradients––the designer creates entirely new, utopian worlds, all with recycled pages that would otherwise end up as crumpled trash to the common eye.
“I cut out all the ads from Transworld and Thrasher around my room,” Saunders told the Daily Nexus regarding his introduction to art, “and started seeing that I was attracted to graphic design without even knowing the term ‘graphic design.’”
Now, Saunders can be found regularly sharing his work via his prolific social pages, including behind the scenes looks into pieces, experimentations with new styles, and helpful tips for artists who are seeking to better their craft.
‘Big Wave’ will feature all new pieces by Saunders, as well as the unveiling of a new mural alongside the gallery space, from 7pm-11pm. Music will be provided by our own Andy Internets, Tall Dark, and Money Cuh.
