If your walls could talk, they’d say you have a heinous potty mouth.
Give them a taste of their own medicine with a Mark McGinnis print. The Brooklyn-based artist’s alphabet posters make their Chicago debut tomorrow at Post 27.
The eye-popping, envelope-pushing designs aren’t for the faint of heart. McGinnis takes childish terms and urban dictionary phrases, then puts a humorous, adult spin on them. L is for lobotomy (a cowboy-clad, googly-eyed hot dog looking confused); Q is for qualude (a tiny, drowsy pill wearing a pink hat); K is for knocked up (a big-bellied purple mouse).
Irreverent and politically incorrect? Sure. But McGinnis’s artistic precision (he draws everything first and mixes his own colors) and wit outshine all else. We swear.
