Artist: Pete Cuba

This evening I had the pleasure of a studio visit with Pete Cuba, a Chicago graphic designer-by-day, painter-extraordinaire-by-night. I've been a fan of his work for years, and I am excited about working with him again on a few new upcoming projects. A hand-picked selection of his paintings on wood will be hung very soon in Dusty Groove Records (1120 N. Ashland), which is below Corbett vs. Dempsey. When I say they are on wood, they are, in fact, drawn and painted on scraps of board. Furthermore, these paintings pertain quite often to nature and the very pleasant qualities of trees. And the very unpleasant qualities of people. Please come to see them in person, they are quite lovely.

You can see much more of Pete's work on his website, Two Horse Town, as well as on Flickr.
