Yesterday I blogged about the creative sketchbooks of Harold Hollingsworth, and today I’d like to take a closer look at his paintings and studio. Hollingsworth is based in Seattle, Washington and has exhibited works in Berlin, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Portland, and (of course) Seattle. Above you can see his painting Double Rocker (my favorite!) in his studio. I love the graphic nature of his mixed media paintings. Many remind me of the layered wheat-pasted posters that cover barricades around NYC. I also like that his work appears very typographic in appearance to my graphic design eyes. If you enjoy Hollingsworth’s work like I do, follow him on Twitter, Tumblr, check his blog, and see what he’s up to on Flickr.
So many options, get into it!
