Our third artist series collab release was designed by Murphy Welch, a midwest grown artist currently residing in Portland Oregon. Eight years of Chicago life, school, music and courier work has shaped his illustration style to reflect the grime, diversity, and extremes of the city. The roots of his art stem from necessity, being in the Chicago based band So Many Ways called for a visual aspect and this is where Murphy cut his teeth. From music videos to promotional photography to countless logo and t-shirt designs Murphy's touring life stemmed many opportunities to explore visual art in a mercenary, gun-for-hire style. As opposed to the utilitarian and gnarly illustrative style this birthed he has since moved forward into more conceptual art as of late. The Upper Northwest of America has called out a different vision of vibrant color, abstract gesture, and form. Currently working towards making public art on a large scale, this new exploration touches on the nature of reality, and is intrinsically experiential.
