Frank Romero’s Famous Again!

Modern Multiples and its crew would like to formally congratulate artist, legend, partner and friend Frank Romero for his continued success and recent peak in renown as he celebrates his life work in several locations with concurrent shows “Dreamland” at MOLAA (Museum of Latin American Art), “Soñando en East Los” at CalState LA’s Fine Art Gallery and “Soñando en Califas” at Eastern Projects in Chinatown’s Blossom Plaza.

It was a real pleasure to see an LA Chicano artist in MOLAA. Modern Multiples team Lisa Duardo and Montana Mills get an early bird hello in with Romero outside MOLAA by the car show at the Opening Reception on Saturday Feb. 11th, 2017.

Show on exhibition until May 21st. Get your tickets here.

SOÑANDO en EAST LOS @ CSULA FINE ART GALLERY:csula romero opening

 

los4 at csula whittier blvd st csulaCSULA Fine Art Gallery, which recently hosted Modern Multiples’ own “Richard Duardo: Artist and Master Printmaker” in October 2016, now houses a concurrent show of works on paper for Frank Romero. In fact, Romero has produced a lot of limited editions in his life and many were thanks to the many studios Richard Duardo owned and operated. For example, “The Closing of Whittier Boulevard” to the left was printed by Aztlan Multiples, one of Modern Multiples’ predecessors.

This show is still open as well until March 10th, 2017. Free to visit. View location and time availability here.

 

SOÑANDO en CALIFAS @ EASTERN PROJECTS:

The mere fact that Frank had enough artwork to fill Eastern Projects while so much of his body of work was already curated into a museum and a university’s fine art gallery is stunning. His life’s work is a rooted, vibrant depiction of the Los Angeles Chicano experience.

Don’t miss out on attending the retrospectives still on display! He’s surely in another iteration of fame! In his own words, “I’ve been around so long I’ve been famous six times.” Think this makes 7, Frank! Congratulations.

“PHISH” March 6,7,8 2009 Hampton Coliseum, Virginia Authenticity

Statement of Provenance:

Re: March 6,7,8 2009 Hampton Coliseum, Virginia (3 Colorways)

In January 2009, an order for a few thousand screen printed Phish posters came to Modern Multiples. Modern Multiples hired out a third party screen printer, Superb Graphics, to help fill the order. Since Modern Multiples remained an active party in the creation of this print, Modern Multiples retained several APs (artist proofs) in it’s inventory.

Also, there exist two chops authenticating the prints. “PHISH”, in the shape of a fish, and “House” are both embossed on the bottom right hand corner.

The 3 colorways being sold currently on 1xRun and our Modern Multiples shop are, in fact, authentic prints from the same print run in 2009.

Happy collecting!
