Kevin O'Rourke

Grayslake, IL, United States

Kevin’s work fuses elements of graphic design and advertising verve into frenetic rock art. During his prolific career, Kevin has produced concert posters for everybody from The Flaming Lips and Flogging Molly, to Sonic Youth and Ween. Kevin has designed over 30 bout posters for nationally ranked flat track roller derby league, The Detroit Derby Girls. The posters have been featured in and around Detroit's print publications and music venues, and have been recognized for design excellence on a national stage. Kevin is currently a resident artist at the Fulton Street Collective, a true artist cooperative that provides support and resources to its creative community. His linoleum block prints of classic Detroit and Chicago neighborhoods embody his passion for both cities. His scrappy Irish countenance reveals his tendency to forgo artistic arrogance and move between the realm of fine art and more commercially accessible graphic design.
