Derek Hess

Pink Floyd at Texas Stadium 4/29/94 by Derek Hess

© Copyright owned by Derek Hess. All rights reserved

FFrom concert posters to politically charged fine art pieces, Cleveland-based artist Derek Hess has tested the waters of both the music and art world for over 15 years.

Hess’ aptitude to convey his work through this showcase of fundamentals has helped take him from an artist who was known for his poster art to one who now works mainly on his fine-art pieces using pen and ink, acrylic paint and silk screen prints with handmade separations.

Always a fan of music, Hess began booking shows at the Euclid Tavern, a staple for cover bands and blues at the time. Hess soon began to curtail the format of the bands being brought to the tavern into something he liked and was comfortable with. He also started creating the promotional flyers for the shows using his own unique vision and a play off the bands names and genre.

In 1993, while still booking bands at the Euclid Tavern, Hess’ flyers caught the eye of Marty Geramita, who suggested that Hess turn his flyers into a business venture. In the years immediately following, Hess, with Geramita as his manager, garnered the attention of countless bands as well as both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the infamous Louvre in Paris, who both have Hess’ art in their permanent collection.
