All Star Press Presents: Skewville "Famous Before The Internet" (Chicago, IL)

Read from the press release below:

All Star Press Presents:


In this day of INSTA-FAME and one trick ponies this show is intended to re-educate the “First Click Google Search” public of the lost art of this legendary Skewville Duo as well as highlight the prolific design skills of Ad Deville.

With over two decades of quips and on point situational awareness, this body of work pays homage to the cut-paste ad style of vintage coupons and the fine art of repetition.  A stylistic pattern seen in past Skewville works reminiscent of their ‘Brooklyn Beef’ series, with an aim at referencing the past while pushing the current culture forward. 

After more than 20 years of running the streets, Skewville is bringing the outside back in to the gallery at All Star Press July 28th, 2018.

For those of you who don’t know, Skewville was an actual place, first inhabited by Ad & his twin brother Droo circa 1996. Skewville was originally coined for the building’s warped structure as well as their crooked sense. In some circles, the term “Skewville” now stands for a specific urbanized style and/or a mythical collective that transcended the original structure.
