The Post-It Show

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a happy, silly, satisfying New Year’s Eve, and I wish you a 2019 full of beautiful things!

I thought today was a good time to bring you something fun and unexpected and remarkable. Today we’re getting a look at the 14th Annual Post-It Art Show. I can’t believe I’ve missed 13 of these! Hosted by L.A. gallery Giant Robot, the show invites emerging and established artists to submit an original piece of art on a 3×3″ Post-It Note. This year’s artists include familiar names like Simpsons creator Matt Groening alongside newer artists including Audrey Kawasaki, Hayley Powers Thornton-Kennedy, and Yoskay Yamamoto. The Post-Its can be treated however the artist likes; so some are simple, bearing drawings or painting, but others are manipulated, supplemented, torn, pierced, or cut. And all sell for just $25, no matter who created them.

“I think Post-its are great since they’re ubiquitous items that people doodle on and at the same time provides a great medium that confines but at the same time challenges.”

– Eric Nakamura, owner of Giant Robot

You can view all the amazing Post-It artworks on Instagram, and you can check out the Giant Robot Gallery on their website.

  1. Happy New Year Donna, sometimes the best art is the smallest.

  2. How f.un! Kinda like ATC’s which I have never really understood but think is a great way to ‘try’ something out

  3. Remember ‘Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion’: “I invented Post-Its.” Cracks me up every time.

  4. What a brilliant idea for an exhibition! I must admit that I am annoyed at myself that I never thought about it as a community art project back when I was organising art exhibitions. I love the balance of uniformity and diversity.

  5. These are fabulous! I especially love the sun/moon pair from the last artist shown.
