Event description

Description

Smartpress and AIGA Minnesota

Join Smartpress and AIGA Minnesota for an evening of surfing the bold colors, geometric patterns and botanical profiles of Oregon-based artist, Erik Abel.

Passionate about both painting and the sea, Erik has spent his life crossing the globe in search of perfect waves and inspiration. A lucky side effect, according to Abel, has been the influence of different cultures, art and new environments on his now signature organic, tribal style.

His celebratory odes to water and nature not only grace the walls of galleries across the country and abroad but, can be found online and in-store at iconic brands like REI, Patagonia, Billabong, Reef, Pottery Barn, Sector 9 Skateboards and Blue Moon Brewing Company who have tapped the artist for commercial installations, packaging, graphic merchandise and digital prints.

Don't miss your opportunity to get a first-hand account of this fascinating designer’s backstory. Join us for the evening, post-interview Q&A and happy hour with snacks served.
