Chris Williams

Chris Williams’ ability to manipulate his personal infatuations and merge them with the provocative imagery of both internationally-lauded and locally-loved bands makes for some of the most effective posters I’ve ever come across. His sense of humor is dry and in stark contrast to the intimate detail he labors over in nearly every piece of his work. Give the art world another five years to catch up to his ethic and originality. — Steve V

PRF Auktoberfyst 2011 Poster by Chris Williams at Plastic Flame

Chris Williams from Plastic Flame Press returns in fine form with another festival poster for the PRF Auktoberfyst 2011.

The Poster is four screens on 80 lbs French Madero Beach. It measures 12.5″x19″, and is an edition of 50. Interested parties can arrange for purchase at or hope to get one at the show.

A description of the poster, from the artist himself:

I think Jonah had said something about Bradley needing a statue erected in his honor, so I thought about trying to create a stately portrait of a hunter with his collection. A viking fish named Thor, a pipe smoking owl, a mini T. Rex and a Christmas cheetah. The request to have “Genuine strength manifests itself as quiet resolve” incorporated helped seal the deal.

Notes: the fish was originally a piranha, the cheetah the ghost of a grizzly bear and the T Rex a greyhound; the owl has been around since the initial sketch for no apparent reason.
