BRUSH MASTER //
Work in Progress — Illustration and Design
Published for an exhibit of the Brush Master’s work at the Central Library on May 14, 2018. Event details here.
“At the height of his activity in the early 2000s, Mississippi’s artwork covered an enormous span of the Indianapolis cityscape. For me, Mississippi’s once-omnipresent hand-painted signs are an important component of the visual aesthetic of Indianapolis. His hand-painted signs represent a dying tradition in a world increasingly dominated by technology and the generic corporate design of chain stores and franchises.
Mississippi’s work is threatened by the ever-expanding intrusion of gentrification in Downtown Indianapolis, a reminder that we need to protect our cultural assets.”
