About the Album Art and Artist:

EMEK BIO


Coming from a unique family of 5 artists, Emek has made his mark creating special limited edition silkscreen posters for live concerts around the world.
 Emek’ style thrives on attention to detail, coupled with layers of meaning in the artwork. His infusion of socio-political commentary into pop culture imagery has made his work instantly recognizable in the field. Emphasizing craftsmanship, his work is mostly hand-drawn in the tradition of the classic psychedelic posters from the 1960′s. Born in the 70′s Emek was also strongly influenced by the DIY punk flyers of the 80’s. 
  “I appreciate the creative freedom this medium allows me because the bands generally give me total freedom as long as I advertise the show info. I am allowed to dip into the recesses of my imagination and see what spills out onto the page. This allows me to be my own art director and I am able to experiment with different concepts and styles to keep things fresh. Today’s disposable culture paves the way for tomorrow’s collectable nostalgia…I’m just trying to make it interesting”
 Over the last 2 decades, Emek has created hundreds of posters for some of the top alternative bands and events, like Erykah Badu, BB King, The Roots, the Flaming Lips, Radiohead, Coachella Festival, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, Jane’s Addiction, to name a few, as well as album covers from Neil Young and Pearl Jam to Henry Rollins and Erykah Badu. Emek’s work has been shown in galleries across the United States, in Berlin, London and Tokyo and Belgium and Canada. He has been interviewed on CNN, featured in magazines and books.  And now, collected for the first time in one book, a retrospective of the first 20 years of Emek’s rock’n’roll artwork and political posters, as well as his accomplished family’s art and fine art and many never before seen pieces. 272 full color pages, 9″ x 12″ Glow in the Dark hardcover book.
“Emek has great design and impeccable political sentiments, what more could you ask for on a poster?” -R.Crumb
