Intelligence Karel Martens Exhibition

Today I had the pleasure of visiting the first North American solo exhibition of renowned Dutch graphic designer Karel Martens at P! Gallery on the Lower East Side. The collection features his signature letterpress mono prints, an interactive video installation, a modular wall-covering system, and a kinetic clock sculpture - that extend his nearly 60 year experimentation with color, overprinting, patterning and time.

Karel Martens began studying art in Holland in the late 1950s where he developed a letter press and blocking technique which later evolved into what is now known as "graphic design." Today, he is widely recognized as one of the most important practitioners of that very discipline, with clients ranging from publishers, architects, and institutions.
