"I created this body of work this past summer (2013) for the Red Bull House of Art. Which is an Artist Residency that provides studio space and exhibit space for Detroit artists. This body of work was inspired by the after hours environment as well as the landscape here in Detroit. This city is a gold mine for aging liquor store signs, and other hand painted signs. There is a folk art quality to the entire city and I wanted to bring that into a more specific subject. This piece is a collection of vintage beer cans that I like." - Jesse Kassel
This RUN is signed, numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Jesse Kassel and 1xRUN.
ABOUT Jesse Kassel:
Budding from a long family history of visual artists, it was natural for Jesse Kassel to follow suit. In 2010 he earned a BFA with a focus in illustration and has since been exploring various creative outlets. Drawing inspiration from vintage advertisements and graphic design coupled with the rich cultural context and aging city façade, Kassel’s work is an Americana-tinged portrayal of the leisure seeking working class. His paintings of alcohol and tobacco products reflect social celebrations as well as the consequential dependency and grief of substance abuse. Using salvaged wood, household paint and twine, Kassel assembles his work with materials reminiscent of rural craft fair debris. His work has been featured at exhibitions both locally and around the world.
