Me & Arrow

Printed Matter presented the first annual LA Art Book Fair at The Geffen Contemporary, MOCA last weekend. LA Art Book Fair was a unique international event for artists’ books and zines presented by more than 220 international presses, booksellers, antiquarians, artists and independent publishers.

I had an opportunity to attend and helped out an underground Japanese label, Presspop’s booth. The event ended with a huge success. So many people showed up every day. My head was spinning the whole time from talking to and looking at people one after another.  My personal gain was that I got to experience all 4 days and be a part of it. So much inspiration came through from people who has been supporting their art/passion for 20 years 30years!

Presspop has been putting out art books, graphic novels, 12” to a figure doll of Allen Geinsberg! for 18 years. I learned how important it is to stay true to yourself and your passion. Shouldn’t be swayed by trends and others. If you follow your passion, nothing you regret. 20 years of doing what you love is just amazing example I want to follow!
