Jeff McMillan integrates quirky humor into his work. While some artists create their own universe, Jeff McMillan has created a sport called Prigus. This sport will now be on display at RVCA in San Francisco from March 27 - June 27, 2015, with an opening on March 27 from 6-9pm.
RVCA Haight Ashbury proudly presents Prigus Sport Season Opener Spring ’15. Featuring fifty paintings as well as drawings, Prigus paddles, pennant flags, historical artifacts, and tiger suits on mannequins serve to celebrate and tell the history of McMillan’s fictional sport. Limited edition collectables including RVCA Prigus patches, T-shirts, and Riso prints round out the lot, mimicking merchandise found at the stadium. McMillan has created so much supporting material, virtual and physical, that you might be convinced that Prigus is a real sport and now it definitely could be.
“In my eyes there is no end to this thing and thats what i like about it. My goal is to put so much information out there that people believe that this sport could have happened.”
