Poster Artist Emek

Clip: Season 14 Episode 1417 | 8m 47s

Known for his visually detailed and socio-political-infused poster art, graphic artist Emek is sometimes called the “Thinking Person’s Poster Artist.” His work is reminiscent of the classic rock art of the 1960s. While his limited edition silk screens have given way to the easier computer printing process, his work is still highly sought after by contemporary music’s hottest bands.
