14 September 2020 — San Francisco, CA: You’ve seen the work. Now meet the artist behind hundreds of iconic images on Instagram, Twitter and most any social media account with a social consciousness. The artist known to legions of their fans is Broobs. a collage creator and photographer who melds the past and present, finding inspiration in nature, botanical elements, and classic color palettes to create fresh imagery. From Monday, September 28 – Thursday, October 1 (5pm-8pm Pacific Time),  attendees will get the rare opportunity to spend four days (three hours each day) with Broobs, learning cut-and-paste methods for making fresh and powerful imagery.  Registration for this limited special event is available at https://letterformarchive.org/events/cuttin-it-up-with-broobs-a-collage-workshop

“Art has historically been a powerful tool for political activists. This year that is especially true,” said Grendl Löfkvist, Education Director for San Francisco’s Letterform Archive.  “Broobs’s unique collage constructions illustrating stories of queer icons, victims of police violence and hate crimes, and other progressive political ideals have become an iconic visual language of this time.”

This workshop will reveal Broobs’s techniques for using source material to create different collage styles, including how to incorporate text and make compelling compositions.

During its five-year history, Letterform Archive has welcomed over 10,000 visitors from 30 countries, including students, practitioners, and letterform admirers from every creative background. Later this year, the Archive will move into a new, expanded building, providing more hands-on access, when such access is once again available. Meanwhile, the organization is offering many workshops, lectures, and other programs online at lettarc.org/events.
