Giant Robot presents “Work and Non-Work” an exhibition by Susie Ghahremani

Reception Saturday, November 17, 2012: 6:30 – 10pm

Show dates Nov. 17 – Dec. 5, 2012

Free to attend, all ages.

Giant Robot presents the eighth solo show by award-winning artist and illustrator Susie Ghahremani. This exhibition, “Work and Non Work” (the title borrowed from an album by Broadcast), “emphasizes the experimentation and play of my miniature paintings and drawings juxtaposed against my framed commercial works.” No matter the final output, her body of work echoes her distinctly illustrated hybrid of nature, animals, music and patterns.

Susie Ghahremani is a 2002 graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. She has a tiny paintbrush and a steady hand which she uses to create miniature works rendered in astounding detail. In addition to illustrating for commercial and editorial clients such as Chronicle Books, Bloomsbury USA, Bank of America, Target, T-Mobile, and The New York Times, she crafts and develops her own line of stationery and gift items under pseudonym Boygirlparty®.

Ghahremani has been the recipient of awards and recognition by American Illustration, Alt*Pick, Giant Robot’s artist of the year and Venus Magazine’s Best DIY business. She exhibits her paintings internationally and is anticipating the release of her first picture book, What Will Hatch? written by Jennifer Ward.  She lives in nearby San Diego, California with her husband and zillions of pets.

An opening reception for Susie Ghahremani will take place from 6:30 – 10:00 PM on Saturday, November 17th.

During the reception, there will be live silkscreening of a t-shirt design by Susie Ghahremani exclusively sold in limited edition at this show at Giant Robot.
