Art Studio Tour: Denny Schmickle


Schmickle received a BS from the College of the Ozarks and an MFA from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. He is an artist and graphic designer who specializes in hand-printed silkscreen concert posters and artwork that investigates how the two practices interact.

Where you’ve seen it:
His T-shirts are sold at Dwelling Spaces and his posters have been featured in the anthologies Gig Posters, Volume 1 and Dirty Fingernails, as well as in the Price Tower’s recent UK/OK exhibition.

Ask about:
Drawing inspiration from Ladies Home Journal and old photographs of food.

Quotable:
“Collage is important to what I do. Rather than make things, I mine culture for weird images and change the context.  I have this image of a ham that looks so strange out of context.  I’m just waiting for the time when I can turn it into a face.”

Guest Blogger: Sarah Jesse, Bernsen Director of Education and Public Programs at the Philbrook Museum of Art.

Meet 10 artists and see their working spaces and during the Tulsa Art Studio Tour April 10 and 11. http://www.tulsaartstudiotour.org/
