Best Concert Poster Designer

Alex Cunningham

Staff Pick

Alex Cunningham creates collage flyers, touting the coolest experimental and noise shows in town, using vintage, thrift-store-found images of people who look as though they've wandered off the set of Pleasantville. He then juxtaposes them with disturbing arrangements of text, shredded comic books and torn-up pictures of '60s Americana. Despite the chaos, the information is always clear and well presented, and while his choices hint at larger social messages, their ambiguity leaves that open to interpretation. Cunningham's artwork is not limited to poster design; his piece Keepings can be spotted at bus stops around town as part of Metro's MetroScapes art exhibit. His work is instantly recognizable, strange and slightly jarring — much like the music he promotes. alexcunninghamstl.tumblr.com.
