About the Lecture: Peter will talk about the commitment to the traditional approach in calligraphy and hand lettering. He'll discuss the joy of creating by hand in the studio and on walls. We'll see beautiful images that highlight versatility of lettering styles, related to type as communication, and also as personalized fine art.
About Peter: Peter Greco specializes in the art of traditionally-inspired, hand-crafted lettering and typography. His continuous exploration and passion has enabled him to reach beyond design into the realm of fine art. He continues to design logos and lettering art by hand as well as to produce “calligraffitti” street art, hand-painted signs, and also interior and exterior typographic murals. His work has been exhibited in various art galleries in the Los Angeles area. In addition he has created an authentic body of Renaissance manuscript art as a library exhibit and as a graphic novel.
