An epic collaboration honoring the work of the Indianapolis sign painter known as the Brush Master. At the height of his activity in the early 2000s, the Brush Master’s artwork covered an enormous span of the Indianapolis cityscape. His hand-painted signs represent a dying tradition in a world increasingly dominated by technology and the generic corporate design of chain stores and franchises.The Brush Master’s work is threatened by the ever-expanding intrusion of gentrification in downtown Indianapolis, a reminder that we need to protect our cultural assets. Featuring the Brush Master, Kyle Long, Douglas Kearney, Sam Roberts, Tatjana Rebelle, Produced and edited by Stuart Hyatt, Design by Janneane and Benjamin Blevins, Illustration by Sam Roberts.
Dimensions: 5.5 X 8.5", 48 pages
