John Tebeau “You Want It, You Got It” at Adjacent to Life Gallery
Tebeau’s “You Want It, You Got It” opens at Adjacent To Life Gallery, Nov. 7, 6-8 p.m.
Tebeau is a fan of bold lines, strong design and vibrant colors. He taught himself how to draw in elementary school, and started painting later, melding cartoon sensibilities with an appreciation for art that shows wit and dash. He was strongly influenced by the Harvey Kurtzman era of Mad and cartoonists like Don Martin, Robert Crumb and Al Hirschfeld.
He grew up in a small town, North Muskegon, Mich., graduated from University of Michigan before living in Chicago and San Francisco, and now New York. He also lives part time in New Orleans.
Tebeau also has a show called “Great Good Places of Brooklyn” opening at Fort Defiance in Red Hook, Brooklyn, Nov. 13. That show features silkscreened images of six bars in Brooklyn that feel like home without being at home. The pieces are on 100 percent cotton fiber, acid-free Stonehenge paper, each signed and numbered.
