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. Take a look! And if you are feeling saucy, take a look at Geoff's board he handpainted as part of our Jux x Univ x Chandran Gallery benefit for Waves for Water.

Geoff McFetridge does a lot of things very well. He does visuals for the film "HER," collaborations with Jack Spade/Heath Ceramics/NIke/Spike Jonze, and makes beautiful minimalist paintings. He was also the cover of the September 2013 Juxtapoz print edition, and he painted a surfboard for our special benefit auction for Waves for Water that starts today. And, this Friday, March 21, he opens a brand new set of exhibition of 13 paintings, Meditallucination, at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen.

His fine art paintings, a combination of powerful, simple concepts done in flat, beautiful colors had intrigued us for years, and because our last conversation with the artist was prior to this painting series, our Editor-in Chief, Evan Pricco, went to LA to discuss the new works. Here is the the September 2013 cover story...
