Spoke SF is pleased to present Heaven of Many a Tangled Hue, a solo exhibition by the prolific San Francisco-based artist and master screen printer Chuck Sperry. For his third solo exhibition with Spoke Art, Sperry has created a verdant garden of new work tended by his signature shimmering muses.
Informed by art historical figures such as Gustave Moreau and William Morris, combined with the poetry of P.B. Shelley, Greek Mythology and his home in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco, Chuck Sperry has cultivated a distinct style brimming with exuberance and energy. Combined with his masterful printing expertise, Sperry creates ethereal and psychedelically saturated screen prints that draw crowds and dedicated fans around the world.
Creating work for musicians such as The Who, Patti Smith and The Black Keys in addition to his fine art screen prints on panel, Chuck Sperry has also used his artwork for social activism and change. The artist describes his political participation - “Freedom of Speech is our most powerful weapon, and it’s a driving force in my art.”
