Crayon Coffin & Mushroom Necklace present Ghastly Wave
Art at Stumptown Downtown


On view March 7th – March 31st, 2013
Closing reception Thursday, March 28th (6 p.m. – 8 p.m.)

For the past five years, Mike Little (Jollapin Jasper), William Khein, and Dusty Dirtweed (Peterman), known collectively as Crayon Coffin and Mushroom Necklace, have been making music posters in three different cities of the West Coast: Portland, San Francisco, and San Diego. Having originally met in the Midwest and shared Ghastly Cave, a collective studio, together they produced silkscreen posters, paintings, and noise music.

The collection of posters presented here for their exhibition Ghastly Wave showcases nearly 150 works from their individual and collective output since moving to the West Coast. Created for musicians such as Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Sic Alps, Blasted Canyons, Warm Soda, Cosmonauts, Shivas, King Tuff and many others, this series acts as a collective visual document of some of the west coast’s recent musical movements.
