As we noted on the site earlier this week, September 2013 cover artist Geoff McFetridge is to open a solo show, "Meditallucination" at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen on Friday, March 21st. The first round of previews centered around the Los Angeles-based artist's paitnings, and today we have a look at the fantastic drawings and studies McFetridge created around the show, which are arranged in an installation piece at the show.
