Alexandra Antoine

My current work focuses on portraiture and the visual representation of languages of the African diaspora. My linear color layout signifies my tracing of ancestry and heritage and I use text in Creole to showcase my native tongue, drawing from stylistic representations found around the city of Port-Au-Prince and Leogane, Haiti, specifically on “tap-tap” buses. I combine reconfigured Mud Cloth and Vévé symbols from Mali and Haiti respectively that are representative of my subjects personality and life experiences.

Jennifer Burak

Zerobird Studio

Zerobird is a screen printing and design studio located in the historic Feather Loft building in Chicago’s West Town Industrial Corridor. Run by the husband and wife team of Jennifer Burak and Dan Spielman. We make extremely efficient use of the 18’ x 18’ space where we do all our designing, file prep, screen exposure, printing, sewing and packaging. All prints ( paper, tshirt and fabric ) are hand pulled using water based inks and soy based solvents. Our equipment is mostly handmade using salvaged materials – the tables were even built from torn down walls in our old studio. We also enjoy embracing traditional printing methods whenever possible, including Rubylithe transfers.

Jennifer grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and was trained as a Graphic Designer before traveling to San Francisco, Germany, and Minneapolis to pursue a career in advertising as an Art Director. She finally settled in downtown Chicago in 2006, began biking, riding the el, falling in love with the city and spending way too much time tied to the computer. What started as a weekend lesson with Steve Walters at Screwball Press in 2008 purely for fun, quickly became setting up a make shift studio in the corner of her apartment and creating a brand to participate in the Renegade Craft Fairs. Jennifer then began selling prints and handmade pillows in stores around Chicago, spending any free moments printing and sewing. In 2011, she left full time advertising work to focus on Zerobird. She also began teaching screen printing classes to 4th-8th graders on the north side of Chicago, exposing them to the craft for the first time. Jennifer still freelances as an Art Director.

Josh Epstein

TotesFerosh

TotesFerosh (Josh Epstein) is a Detroit-born, Chicago-based printmaking artist whose fashion forward characters explore the inaccessible luxuries the masses yearn for. His ‘linocut’ printmaking method involves hand-carving intricate patterns into plates of linoleum, to be printed onto paper or canvas. By fusing distinctive, graphic figures with lavish patterns and backdrops, he delivers a distinctive story of minimalist excess.
