Josh and Colby of design duo, Jolby are having a solo show at Subtext Gallery, San Diego. They sent over a few sneak peeks and a link to their awesome video giving us the overall vibe of what you’ll be seeing.
Jolby will guide us on a voyage through their past, present, and everything in between to find out what makes them happy. For “Shapes & Smiles”, Jolby has been exploring their methods of storytelling with over 50 new pieces of work, including illustration, paintings, wood-cut shapes, screen prints, plush, and home goods. An audio tour will accompany the exhibition accessible by your smart phone. With this, you’ll be able to know the back story and personal relevance of each piece from the artists. Such a great idea! You’ve seen this done before in museums, but, rarely in a gallery setting like this. If you are in Southern California, the show is Friday, December 16th. Subtext Gallery is located at 2479 Kettner Blvd., San Diego, California 92101. More info here.
By the way, you can pick up some exclusive Jolby for Poketo products on the Poketo site. We met them last year in their hometown of Portland…. really down to earth, cool guys. We pride ourselves here at Poketo with collaborating with people that love what they do, are awesome at it, and are undeniably the coolest people on earth. Jolby is one of them. Stay tuned for more good things with Jolby and Poketo in the new year!
