Aug. 9, 2011 - PRLog -- Ohio based artist and celebrated rock concert poster artist Derek Hess will be showing a new body of fine art work at Fort Myers art gallery, HOWL, in September 2011. Derek is most well known for his poster and album art for bands such as Pantera, Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, Clutch, Fall Out Boy, Deftones, Iggy Pop, Pink Floyd, and many more. His art is on permanent display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in the Louvre in Paris.

The majority of Hess' fine art is done in pen and ink along with acrylic paint or screen printing. His creative career grew largely out of his ability to express the emotion in the indie, hardcore, and hard rock scenes of the mid-1990s. His work is known for its humor and irony and often depicts dynamic figure drawing and angelic characters in adverse situations. Hess' work also appears in his own apparel company, Strhess Clothing.

Derek currently sells his fine art work around the world and has had solo shows in Berlin, Long Beach, Detroit, New York City, Dominican Republic, Dallas, and others. Hess has been featured on television shows and in magazines including TLC, The Food Network, MTV, Fuse, VH1, Alternative Press, and Juxtapoz as well as many others.

Meet the artist during Fort Myers Art Walk, September 2nd at HOWL Gallery. Reception starts at 6pm. Live music and belly dancing by What We Do on the HOWL back patio. Light refreshments provided. Show runs until October 3rd.
