Emily Fromm, “Jackson Street,” 2016, acrylic on panel, 40 x 48 inches

An interesting take on illustration, vintage cartoons, comic books, and more opens soon at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco. Find out here who the artist is and when her exhibition opens.

Emily Fromm is bringing a fresh artistic perspective to urban landscape during “OPEN LATE,” a solo exhibition this July at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco. Fromm uses a range of techniques to create her paintings, which display clean lines and a flat, limited color palette. Calling to mind poster illustration, pop art, cartoons, and the marketing industry, Fromm’s work is clearly influenced by the “over-the-top yet seedy aesthetic of the American west, and highlights signage, architecture and the iconic style of the region” the gallery writes. “She applies a graphic style that is familiar and nostalgic to these settings, incorporating imagery that is mundane and often low brow, to contrast these grandiose scenes with everyday life.”
