C. M. Ruiz
What makes a cool concert poster? Any graphic designer can draw a few birds on a tree branch, slap on “The Shins” and call it a day. C. M. Ruiz designs his posters with a rawness that has more in common with DIY punk than modern indie rock aesthetics. Instead of a Mac and mouse, Ruiz uses a Sharpie and photo copier. “Happy Home” is a tribute to the people and places that have inspired Ruiz posters throughout the years. The exhibit consists of a small shanty house installation with fuzzy Xerox lining the walls, showing Carlos’ connection to the images and people therein.
