Emek has been referred to as “The Thinking Man’s Poster Artist”.
Coming from a unique family of 5 artists, Emek has made his mark creating special posters and album covers for prominent musicians for 15 years.
He was recently credited for creating some of the best rock posters of all time by Billboard Magazine…
Emek’ style thrives on attention to detail, coupled with layers of meaning in the artwork. His infusion of socio-political commentary into pop culture imagery has made his work instantly recognizable in the field. Emphasizing craftsmanship, his work is still hand-drawn in the tradition of the classic psychedelic posters from the 1960’s. Born in the 70’s Emek was also strongly influenced by the DIY punk flyers of the 80’s.
Over the last 2 decades, Emek has created hundreds of posters for some of the top alternative bands and events, like Coachella, the Decemberists, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, System of a Down, Pearl Jam, The Flaming Lips, to name a few. As well as album covers from Neil Young and Pearl Jam to Henry Rollins and Erykah Badu. Emek’s work has been shown in galleries across the United States and Europe. He has been interviewed on CNN, and featured in dozens of magazines and books.
