Downy Bird Art Kingdom



Just found this publication, put out by bay area artists that rock. Here's how they describe it:

Downy Bird Art Kingdom is an art book that showcases 21 emerging and established contemporary west coast artists. The collection reveals a distinct visual departure from the pop surrealism, neo graff and mission school that dominated the 1990’s and early 2000’s. A new, quieter indie-tone with ample negative space and mystical themes has emerged as a common stylistic denominator. DBAK is a snapshot of this excitingly fresh visual era.


Artists included are:

Monica Canilao
Deth P. Sun
Ogi
Ferris Plock
Sham Saenz
Chris Fitzpatrick
Derrick Snodgrass
Kottie Paloma
Katy Zaugg
Jeana Sohn
Zefrey Throwell
Serena Cole
Tracy Timmins
Hilary Pecis
Catherine Ryan
Daniel Duford
Mike McGovern
Stephen Slappe

Matthew Bowers

You can buy it on their site for $20/issue.
