Haven’t done a Ten Questions in awhile, so let’s get back into it. Here is a guy that flies so far under the radar, it’s almost criminal. He is seriously talented and underrated. Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Andrio Abero.
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Years Doing Posters: 8
Favorite Poster / Art Print You’ve Done: I was pretty happy with the Death Cab for Cutie at the Key Arena in Seattle poster back in 2006. I spent a lot of time trying different directions. What I came up with was surprising and beautiful. The design was heavily inspired by the British design studio Non-Format.
All-time Favorite Poster / Art Print that Someone Else Did: Mat Daly’s Vandermark Five/tsunami wave print is so amazingly simple yet technically insane. Gorgeous print.
Music Currently In Rotation: Resident Advisor podcast, Buzzin’ Fly Radio show, Jamie Lidell, Fleet Foxes, “Purple Rain” by Prince and the Revolution
Last Print, Poster, or Toy Bought: A limited edition print from the artist Von for his solo show at the Espeis Gallery in Williamsburg.
Art Hanging On Your Walls: Nothing right now. I just moved into a new apartment, but when I’m all settled in I’ll have a “Panic Now” print by Shawn Wolfe, Mat Daly’s Vandermark Five poster, a Mogwai poster by Jeff Kleinsmith and a handful of paintings by Jesse Ledoux to start.
Upcoming Stuff: Nothing too big on the horizon, but I just got back from a month long project at Wieden + Kennedy in Portland for Starbucks, designed Mitch Hedberg’s last album for Comedy Central Records, released early September, and finished up a bunch of illustration work through the London based illustration representatives, Dutch Uncle. It’s been an insane summer, so I’m looking forward to taking it easy.
Words of Wisdom: Do what you love.
