Casey Burns – Sonic Youth
When I started collecting gigposters, my main questions were: where can I buy the prints and how do the posters look framed and in reality?
You might have similar questions – at least my other collector’s friends have it. Therefore I introduce the gigposter of the month rubric. Where you can find the posters in their natural environment: Framed and at someone’s home. Additionally I will share with you my different purchasing sources over the coming posts.
Casey Burns is breaking the ground for this new rubric with a print for one of the legends of alternative music: Sonic Youth
It is a three color screenprint with a run of 160 copies for the 2009 concert of Sonic Youth in Salt Lake City.
Personally I like the settings of space, lettering and painting. Also the coloring is very nice, in blue and yellow pastel shades. You should also check out the other prints from Casey. My favorites are the ones he did for Spoon and Sonic Youth (the woman on horse is fantastic!)
I bought this print at http://www.postersandtoys.net/servlet/StoreFront but it seems to be out of stock, but maybe you can still find some copies in Casey’s webshop here: http://caseyburns.com/store/posters/
Hope you enjoyed the gigposter choice of this month. Stay tuned for the next selection.
