Gray Area Print is thrilled to introduce it's newest collaborative print project with artist Michelle Andrade. Michelle's work has been described as "poetic and diaristic commingling the mundane and the confessional amidst a swirl of brightly colored, nostalgic graphic forms."

As a personal friend, I've always admired Michelle's work for her ability to collide her moments of sincerity with dry humor, sarcasm and their contradictory visions of entrancement. Though we've known each other for years, this is our first true collaboration together. I think the work exemplifies the medium's greatest attributes: flat, matte, full saturated color.

Both prints will be making their debut at Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles' Chinatown, for Michelle's second solo show there.
The Opening reception for the Show is November 1, 2014, from 7:00-10:00 pm
