Sonnenzimmer - Bitmap in Public
5 colour screen print
18 x 24 inches
Sonnenzimmer is the Chicago-based studio of Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. Merging backgrounds in typography, printmaking, graphic design and fine art, they create hand-crafted posters, books, and music packaging. Most of their projects are screen printed in-house. Beginning as a shared painting studio, equipped with industrial screen printing equipment, the venture quickly morphed into a design and print studio specializing in hand-crafted prints and design for some of Chicago’s most recognized cultural institutions. They hope their mixture of fine and applied art will be looked at as complimentary assets and that people understand they are not mutually exclusive. Interested in idiosyncratic imagery – may it be of collaborative, or experimental nature.
