The Daemen College Nancy Haberman Gacioch Entrepreneurship Lecture Series will continue October 2 with a presentation by artist and graphic designer Julian Montague.
Montague’s presentation, “Artist as Entrepreneur,” will be at 5 p.m., Wednesday, October 2, 2013, in Wick Center Alumni Lounge on the Daemen campus, 4380 Main Street, in Amherst. This event is free and open to the public.
Montague’s art and graphic design uses language, drawing, photography, installation, and other media to explore the peripheral features of our environment. He has done a remarkable job of combining his skills as an illustrator, graphic designer, and conceptual artist to become a working professional artist while also developing his own graphic design firm: http://frazermontague.com/.
Dan Shanahan, artistic director at Torn Space Theater, had this to say about Montague: "Julian has done a remarkable job of combining his skills. Julian is a perfect example of someone who has combined a business sense with artistic practice to create a profession.
“Julian also weaves together business and art is a very seamless way. I am not sure he would say this, but I feel Julian continues the tradition of Warhol in the blending of business and art."
Montague was recently commissioned to create a series of prints for http://www.printcollection.com/.
“The series depicts the surprisingly diverse and slightly strange official insignia of the American states,” Montague said.
“There are 50 (18x24 inch) prints in the State of America series, including birds, mammals, grains, fossils, minerals, insects and more.” The prints are available at http://www.printcollection.com/.
