Iconic Los Angeles pop artist and graphic designer John Van Hamersveld's inspirational collection of drawings will be showcased in his upcoming exhibition Drawing Attention.

Drawing Attention will highlight forty-five years of Van Hamersveld's visionary drawings in a remarkable 3,000 square foot exhibition and provides a special opportunity to see his personal drawing collection in one cohesive package. This exhibition highlights the depth of his work, his core consistency, and his evolution as an artist.

The eighty-four images in this extensive exhibition are expected to include the Billabong Pipeline Wave, Bono as the "Million Dollar Rock Star," Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Eric Clapton, the New Composer series with Mozart and Beethoven, Grateful Dead skull, the "Buffalo Skull," American Stussy Revolution series, the Indian Chief, the Stomping Grounds movie poster, and the abstract "Box Paintings."

Accompanying the exhibition is a stunning 160-page book, entitled Drawing Attention by John Van Hamersveld. Published by Gingko Press, the book shares the distinctive story of Van Hamersveld's prolific artistic output formative as well as his formative creative process. Renowned graphic designer and a founding member of New York's legendary Push Pin Studios, Seymour Chwast writes the insightful and enlightening foreword to this book.

Drawing Attention draws forth the compelling context for an intriguing discussion in regards to schools of thought about the power of drawing as a way to develop oneself as an artist. Using the mighty pen throughout his career, Van Hamersveld brings his designer's identity to his signature.
