Fort Thunder: A space in Providence, RI founded in 1996 by Brian Chippendale and Mat Brinkman. Is now symbol for musical and visual activity in Providence from 1995 to 2006. Identifiable by image-driven works, op-art, obsessive drawing, noise, environmental phenomena, biomorphic sculpture, role-playing, fantasy, and anonymity. Use of mark-making and homemade type revolutionized poster design and comics. Some affiliated PBox-related artists: Keith McCulloch, Brian Gibson, C.F., Takashi Murata, Leif Goldberg, Erin Rosenthal, Jungil Hong, Francine Spiegel, Ben Jones.
This blog is going to take you to school. You will learn about all things PictureBox: old dudes; obscure design; good painting; bad painting; dogs; annoying product endorsements. And so forth. All from me, Dan Nadel, your PictureBox host.
