Canadian artist Jeff Boyes has been a major part of the art/ design scene in the Great White North for the past 10+ years. Tonight, at Gallery 1988, he embarks on his very first U.S. solos show called, “The Art of Character.” Jeff is a student of lino-cut prints and screen printing, and has slowly developed an illustration style that shows those influences.

Here is what Gallery 1988 has to say about the show: Jeff has decided to focus on the small characters, the unsung heroes, from your favorite movies, a group of actors and actresses usually not depicted in pop culture art. While many artists have flooded the market during the recent screenprint boom, Jeff has decided to focus on quality over quantity and these new pieces will prove it.

EDDIE? Damn! This one alone should make you wanna head out to the gallery tonight! Come by, hang out with Jeff and talk about drinking Molson’s, wearing beanies 9+ months a year and of course, the unsung heroes of pop culture.
Follow Jeff on FACEBOOK, TUMBLR and check out this WEBSITE. Be sure to stop by his STORE and pick up some of the gems he has in there BUT….you won’t find his sold out Clark Griswald print for sale on there. That sold out long ago….
