It’s not too often when a good friend of mine has a great profile in a respected local magazine. And it’s even more infrequent for someone to call me amazing.
On those grounds alone, I absolutely must share with you an article about my friend Oliver Hibert — a feature piece in this month’s edition of Java Magazine.
Oliver and I showed together considerably between 2002 and 2004, including highly memorable exhibitions at monorchid Gallery in downtown Phoenix and Phoenix Art Museum. As part of an art collective, we called ourselves the TRA25 Capsule. On this topic — found on page 10) — Oliver graciously mentions me and our past collaborations — to my pleasant surprise. (Thank you, Oliver.)
Spanning four pages, the article discusses Oliver’s impressive illustration portfolio (including shoes for Nike and snowboards for a well-known snowboard brand, for example), his artistic influences, and his uncanny style of “surreal contemporized pop psychedelia.”
Congratulations, Oliver! Awesome show! Great job!
