On Friday, September 2, 2011 one of the biggest shows ever will happen at the HOWL Gallery in downtown Fort Myers, Florida.
Rock poster icon Derek Hess, from Cleveland, Ohio, will be visiting HOWL. Hess is the world famous rock concert poster artist whose works will be at the gallery for the month of September.
The Ohio based artist will be showing a new body of fine art work at the Fort Myers’ gallery. Hess is well known for his poster and album art for bands such as Pantera, Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, Clutch, Fall Out Boy, Deftones, Iggy Pop, Pink Floyd, and many many more.
This artist’s art is on permanent display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in the Louvre in Paris.
The majority of Hess’ fine art is done in pen and ink along with acrylic paint or screen printing. His creative career grew largely out of his ability to express the emotion in the indie, hardcore and hard rock scenes of the mid-1990s.
Hess’ work is known for its humor and irony and often depicts dynamic figure drawing and angelic characters in adverse situations. His work also appears in his own apparel company, Strhess Clothing.
Derek currently sells his fine art work around the world and has had solo shows in Berlin, Long Beach, Detroit, New York City, Dominican Republic, Dallas, and others.
Hess has been featured on television show and in magazines including TLC, The Food Network, MTV, Fuse, VH1, Alternative Press and Juxtapoz as well as many others.
