ON – Back Alleys & Urban Landscapes Signing

Michael Cho appears at Type Books on Wednesday May 23, 2012 from 6pm – 8pm.

Press Release:

After a day-one, sell out debut at TCAF, Michael Cho’s Back Alleys and Urban Landscapes gets its own book launch! The launch also features a small gallery show and sale of roughly a dozen paintings from the book.

Back Alleys and Urban Landscapes shines with lovingly rendered details, from expletive-filled graffiti splayed across backyard fences to the graceful twists of power lines over a bend in the road. Back Alleys and Urban Landscapes meanders through the city, functioning as a sort of caught-on-paper psychogeographical Jane’s Walk. With each season’s change, different color schemes become dominant, and a whole range of moods and moments are articulated. Cho lets the reader visit his city as a virtual flaneur, lingering equally over dilapidated sheds and well-groomed gardens in a dazzling tribute to the urban environs. Back Alley and Urban Landscapes is Cho’s first book and is published by Drawn & Quarterly.
