“Spudnik welcomes two fantastic printmakers to Chicago – Mickey Zacchilli (Providence, RI) and Lauren Pakradooni (Spartansburg, SC) – for an artist talk on Saturday, February 9!
Mickey Zacchilli was born in 1983 and is know for her popular mini-comics series "Rav” (available at Quimby’s) as well as her wild silkscreened rock show posters. She has a monthly comic strip in Mothers News, has been published in anthologies like Thickness and Monster, and contributed illustrations to the New York Times.
Lauren Pakradooni’s interdisciplinary work incorporates drawing, printmaking, painting, sculpture, installation, performance, and sound. She gravitates towards exploring space, making use of the graphic qualities of print, enveloping character of sound, and the literal space of sculpture and performance. Lauren spent 2011 teaching printmaking in Doha, Qatar, and this year will be an artist in residence at the Wassaic Project, in Wassaic, NY.
