Geoff McFetridge was recently featured on Artinfo.


“When graphic designer and skate-culture icon, Geoff McFetridge, was advertised to be exhibiting new work at Toronto’s Cooper Cole – what is increasingly becoming the city’s platform for young, international, and typically pop-minded talent — one could hear the country’s subterranean street culture step a little closer to the surface. Former art director of the Beastie Boys’ underground “Grand Royal” magazine, and typography designer for Sofia Coppola’s “Virgin Suicides” and Spike Jonze’s “Where The Wild Things Are,” the Calgary-born, LA-based McFetridge has earned his credit on a stratified cultural playing field [such that even his more corporate clients, like Pepsi, Nike, and Gap, seem better for his touch (not McFetridge worse for theirs)].

Amid these various design-centered, multidisciplinary initiatives, McFetridge has long maintained a presence in the art world, presenting solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, Berlin, Paris, London, New York, and Japan. Uniquely, “Floating,” McFetridge’s exhibition at Cooper Cole (on until December 8) marks the artist’s first show in Canada.”
