Andy Gilmore – New Prints and Interview

Posted by Jakub

The Ghostly Store just released an exclusive interview and series of prints from Andy Gilmore, below is the beginning of the interview and here’s a link to check out the rest of the designs.

GI: Tell us about your first memory.
AG: Drawing is at the center of a lot of my childhood memories, the most profound of which is watching my father draw. I remember being astonished in watching his lines take form into realistic depictions of horses

GI: So you were into skateboarding, how did that affect you?
AG: Yes, I starting skateboarding in 1987 or so, in the era of H-street. Skateboarding has introduced me to a lot of great and talented people that have guided me on my personal and professional path.

In 2002, an old friend from skateboarding offered me a job resizing print ads for C1rca footwear and Forum snowboards in Southern California. Fourstar was the beginning of working with the computer for me and I will always be indebted to the wildly talented creative staff that I learned so much from.

GI: How do you feel about music, in regards to your artistic life?
AG: Music is at the center of my artistic life. As a musician I have always been fascinated by the harmony and the physics of sound in a sense defining music as waveforms, waveforms whose properties and proportions define our scales, from which we write our melodies, in which we weave our emotions and memories into songs.

In addition to music as an experience I have been very interested in the theories, methods and language of music ”serialism, minimalism, spectralism, indeterminacy, improvisation, tonality/atonality, silence/noise, raga and rhythm these have always informed the language that I applied to design and ultimately shaped my work.

I would most definitely canvas wrap my hoopty vehicle in brilliant A.G. print and its market price value would go up 10.5% take a picture of it cruising during sunset ( what a super fantastic sight to see) sell it as a radical concept car… Just a thought

I would canvas wrap my ’86 hoopty vehicle in a brilliant A.G. print and its market price value would probably go up 10.5% Then take a picture of it cruising during the peak of golden hour then sell it as a radical super fantastic concept car… just thinking out loud (glossy eyes)

btw rule of thumb: dont type 2am after a long day of work looking at the computer screen then stare at fantastic A.G. prints at 2am to long bc you’ll get frustrated thinking the first comment didnt go through then have to write it all over again trying to remember what you previously wrote. apologetic bow.
