This event has ended.

Clinton's experimentation with faces of iconic figures spawned from the constant routine of printing iconic heads on the hoods of sweatshirts, which is the basic premise of his concept clothing line "HeadHoods." After printing what seemed like countless (Hepburns, Presleys, Jacksons, Monroes, Obamas, Legomen, etc,) he began to introduce more obscure faces ( G. Jones, Sock Monkeys, Luchadors, crying babies, etc). To keep his daily regiment of printing interesting while suppressing his constant fear of copyright infringing, he put his vast array of screens to work and couldn't help but begin to over lay, over print and collage all these different faces. Clint prides himself in creating works wether it be a printed face on a hood, a typographic treatment found on a tshirt or lightpost, or a giant wheatpaste of a three mouthed Marilyn on the street corner which in turn causes his double taking audience to walk away chuckling and thinking positively or better yet, sparking conversation between two strangers. Clinton's first solo show will feature a little bit of everything he makes, including a live music performance at his opening reception.
