You may not know his name, but his art is everywhere. It’s on your Apple watch, splashed on the sides of buildings, exhibited in countless galleries around the world, in title designs for films by Sofia Coppola and Spike Jonze, and featured in collabs with Vans, Warby Parker, Nike, and more. One of the most prolific artists of his time, Geoff McFetridge has undoubtedly influenced the way the world looks. The antithesis of the archetypal artist fueled by drugs, alcohol, and chaos, what sets the prodigious McFetridge apart is his quest for balance as a father, ultramarathoner, and designer. In GEOFF MCFETRIDGE: DRAWING A LIFE, fellow artist and director Dan Covert offers unprecedented access into Geoff''s multicolored world, painting an intimate portrait of a man whose work is guided by intention and authenticity. The film world premiered at this year’s SXSW. This film is presented as part of the New American Perspectives program in partnership with the Vilcek Foundation. Geoff McFetridge will be in attendance for a special extended post-screening conversation.
