Mark Giglio

Published December 8, 2009 by Molly


Mark Giglio is a machine of productivity. The Southern California-born artist runs his studio and workshop, Pen Pencil Stencil, out of Oakland, and wastes no time in cranking out fine drawings, prints, photography, (see below) wallpaper, sculptures (like the nine-piece set of trees made from scrap wood above) limited-edition t-shirt designs, stickers, tote bags and zines. Whew.

Luckily, the quality of Giglio’s work more than matches the quantity. A preference for clean, colorful and minimalist shapes turns each image into a visual treat. Mark’s blog keeps things moving right along with travel bulletins, observations and experiments. It’s almost like being a fly on the workshop wall.

If you find yourself in San Francisco, check out Mark’s serigraphs in PRINTED MATTER 7, Giant Robot’s show that runs from December 5th through January 6th of next year.

    I recognised this house immediately… and subsequently set to figuring out what it had to do with this post… find myself wondering was curiosity the point?
