Prints Gone Wild 2014!

Taking a more democratic approach to art market mentality and print media, the 8th annual Prints Gone Wild event took place during the New York Fine Art Print Week in conjunction with the IFPDA Print Fair. Organized by Cannonball Press and held at Littlefield in Brooklyn, the Prints Gone Wild event boasted affordable art prints available for $50 and under. A one-night-only event featuring printed goods including hankies, posters, T-shirts, stickers and more; Prints Gone Wild brought fine art practice to a bar setting giving the NY Fine Art Print Week a taste of rock-n-roll flair drastically opposing that of the IFPDA Print Fair.  Arriving late near midnight, I caught a glimpse of contemporary printmaking counterculture featuring the likes of the Amazing Hancock Bros., Drive by Press, Bikini Press International and much more. Think lots of denim jackets with weird patches, tattoos and mustaches; then pair that with paper and the look on people’s faces right before it’s time to pack up and go home.
