Art In Life and Cannabis

Art In Life and Cannabis With Art Chantry. Today Vivian is joined by an old and dear friend who has been known as a pioneer in his field. They go through the years of Art’s career including his work with Vivian’s own “Hempfest”. Art is a graphic designer often associated with the posters and album covers he has done for bands from the Pacific Northwest, such as Mudhoney, Mono Men, Soundgarden, and The Sonics. Chantry’s designs are perhaps most closely associated with the Seattle, Washington-based Sub Pop Records and the Bellingham, Washington-based Estrus Records, for which he has worked with dozens of bands.

He is also notable for his work in magazine and logo design. Chantry worked throughout the 1980s as an art director at The Rocket, a Seattle-based music biweekly. Chantry advocates a low-tech approach to design that is informed by the history of the field. His work has been exhibited at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Museum of Modern Art, Seattle Art Museum, the Smithsonian, and the Louvre. Chantry builds his record, poster, and magazine designs by hand, eschewing the now-ubiquitous computer and laser printer for X-Acto knives, Xerox machines, and photoset type. His bright, eye-popping creations can be seen frequently in the mom-and-pop record store as in the pages of establishment design magazines like Print or Communication Arts.
