David Byrne – The Influence of Mixed Drinks

Posted in art, illustration by aldorf on July 23, 2010

I admire this man. Musician, artist and he loves to ride his bike. Make sure to check out his blog.

Electric Works (SF) is pleased to present drawings from David Byrne’s “Arboretum” series (July 16 – August 14). At first glance, these seemingly simple pencil-on-paper drawings look like sketches or notes taken during a business meeting or a biology class. They quickly reveal themselves to be carefully wrought diagrams (often in “tree” format) illuminating the relationship of objects, concepts and connections from our everyday lives.
