About Art Chantry:
Art Chantry is a graphic designer often associated with the posters and album covers he did for bands from the Pacific Northwest, such as Mono Men, Soundgarden and The Sonics. Chantry designed the cover for Some People Can't Surf, written by Julie Lasky. Chantry advocates a low-tech approach to design that is informed by the history of the field. His work has been exhibited at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Museum of Modern Art, Seattle Art Museum, the Smithsonian and the Louvre. Chantry builds his record, poster, and magazine designs by hand, eschewing the now-ubiquitous computer and laser printer for X-acto knives, Xerox machines, and photoset type. His bright, eye-popping creations can be seen frequently in the mom and pop record store as in the pages of establishment design magazines like Print or Communication Arts.
