Conceptual Elegance

the Art of Jason Munn
Event detail
 

Jason Munn is a graphic artist living in Oakland. He attended Madison Area Technical College, in Wisconsin where he studied commercial art. About 10 years ago he began to make posters for local bands and venues under the name Small Stakes. He now works under his own name and concentrates on posters, design and illustration commissions. His clients include musicians such as Mark Kozelek, the Books and Stars. He has also done work for Wired Magazine, Best Made Co. and SFMOMA. His trademark is conceptually rich, yet simple designs. In these display cases viewers can track the seed of the idea in sketch form to the finished poster. Jason has generously donated these posters to the Art and Music Department’s Poster Collection.
