Fatherless Logo | In Loco Parentis

Fatherless is a collaborative print posse from the midwestern United States. Our works are the result of 5 individual artists working cohesively with each other’s artwork. Described as a visual mix-tape of shenagination, we combine our cultural influences in ways that finished works are not only unique to our collaboration, but unique among the editions of hand-screened prints as well; we make certain no two prints are ever the same.

Influences are many and certainly captured by what we have coined as a "Rust Belt Power Pop" aesthetic. Our finished pieces aim to mirror the chaotic and detached sense that is communicated in our current consumer driven social climate. A good portion of our imagery is re-contextualized from our current throw away culture to create a finished piece.

The name was decided upon based on the notion that each member, although responsible for bringing individual styles and influences to the table, will work on each and every print made. It's a process that involves working independently with each other's images. All prints have been worked on at some point by each member of the posse. We are not 5 artists that work "under" the name of Fatherless… a Fatherless print is made by 5 artists. Those five are Jarrod Hennis, Javier Jimenez, Greg Lang, Dave Menard, and Ben Rider.
