ROUGH DRAFT | Sketches and beginnings by Matt Wells and Chuck U

“ROUGH DRAFT provides a rare glimpse into the creative process of local artists, Chuck U and Lizardman.”

Opening reception on Friday, March 9, 2012 | 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
{Sketches, prints, and maybe even some new Chuck U t-shirts for sale}

Chuck U and Lizardman are not unfamiliar names. Individually, their work has been prominently featured in local galleries, live art demonstrations, show posters, and murals — giving Minneapolis ample opportunity to appreciate their finely tailored styles.

Work by ChuckU & Lizardman

Showing at Tarnish&Gold | March 9-31, 2012

Lizardman (also known as Matt Wells) is a graphic artist, and co-founder of Rogue Citizen artist collective — known for their gritty, colorful, and politically charged collaborative paintings.

Chuck U is a designer and illustrator known for his perfectly detailed and oddly whimsical creatures. His easily identified style is featured on more than a few local album covers, and most recently – the launch of his new apparel line. T-shirts will be on available during the opening reception.

While many are familiar with Chuck’s surreal and curious apes or Lizardman’s ominous biomechanical characters, few are given the chance to see how these icons were developed. ‘Rough Draft’ features original sketches and ink on paper work, allowing the rest of us to see a part of the process they generally keep private.

The show will run through the end of March: Friday and Saturday 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm or by appointment.
