Poster-Maker Profile : Horse

Gary McGarvey - Horse : James Vincent fish pool poster

Screen-Printed Gig-Poster : James Vincent McMorrow

Good friend Gary McGarvey (a man called Horse) left Donegal, Ireland and chose Liverpool for his base of operations… he has run a poster shop there, curated the Screenadelica gig-poster exhibition as part of the Sound City Festival and then launched it from there to Bestival, Orlando, Barcelona, Porto, Grimsby…
He is one glib whatnot, charming his way into some pretty amazing situations and then delivering the goods as promised…

Most of these profiles are a bit cheeky and mocking, this one less-so, the guy is dynamic and frankly “biscuit taking” – you have our respect Mr Horse

Look out for his killer line-ups, super quality printing and themes that often play with pattern, snowy distortion and almost vector-like architecture.
