Geoff McFetridge

Exhibition Profile

COOPER COLE is pleased to present a solo exhibition from Geoff McFetridge.

Geoff McFetridge was born in Calgary, Alberta in 1971. He attended the Alberta College of Art and Design, as well as the Graduate Design Program at the California Institute of the Arts. McFetridge is widely known for his reductive graphic style. He began to show his work in galleries in 1998, with his first exhibition at George’s Gallery in Los Angeles, California. His first large-scale show was in Japan at Parco Gallery, Tokyo. McFetridge was part of the infamous Beautiful Losers exhibition which toured the world, and he has since had solo exhibitions in galleries and institutions in cities such as Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, Paris, London, Copenhagen, Seattle, and Milan.

McFetridge creates his work with qualities that invite participation and connectivity with the viewer. His personal and commercial art projects use simple shapes to create universally recognized public signage, corporate logos and contemporary iconography. He evokes an interesting play between two and three dimensional space with simple yet intriguing lines fitting into his simplistic and playful style.

This will mark McFetridge's first solo exhibition in his native Canada. There will also be a limited edition silk screen released in conjunction with the show.
