Rick Froberg
"Bog"
Exhibition: February 13 through March 13, 2010

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 13th, 7 to 10 pm

 

Driven by his background in illustration and punk rock, artist and musician Rick Froberg creates
vibrant and bold paintings and drawings.  Through designing and producing flyers, album
covers, posters, t-shirts, etc, he has developed a unique graphic style in his artwork.  He does not
necessarily work with a preconceived concept, but instead lets the work evolve freely and
organically, yet always with skill and precision.

Originally from Los Angeles, Rick Froberg now lives in Brooklyn, NY.  He is a self-taught
artist. At 16, he started his own fanzine, Subculture, which was his first experience with many of
the commercial and production art techniques he still employs to this day.  He has been a
member of the bands Crash Worship, Pitchfork, Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, and currently,
Obits. He has worked on illustration projects with Gary Panter and for Deitch Projects. His
artwork has been exhibited both internationally and nationally including at Clementine Gallery in
New York City and New Image Art in Los Angeles.
