Emek (born Emek Golan in Israel in 1970) is a popular artist/graphic designer/illustrator who has designed concert posters since the early 1990s. He is widely credited with helping to revive the rock poster scene. [...]

EMEK has been referred to as "The Thinking Man's Poster Artist". Coming from a unique family of 5 artists, Emek has made his mark creating special limited edition silkscreen posters for live concerts around the world. Emek’s style thrives on attention to detail, coupled with layers of meaning in the artwork. His infusion of socio-political commentary into pop culture imagery has made his work instantly recognizable in the field. Emphasizing craftsmanship, his work is mostly hand-drawn in the tradition of the classic psychedelic posters from the 1960's. Born in the 70's Emek was also strongly influenced by the DIY punk flyers of the 80’s. Over the last 2 decades, Emek has created hundreds of posters for some of the top alternative bands and events, like Radiohead, Coachella, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, System of a Down, Jane's Addiction, The Flaming Lips, to name a few, as well as album covers from Neil Young and Pearl Jam to Henry Rollins and Erykah Badu. Emek's work has been shown in galleries across the United States, in Berlin, London and Tokyo and Belgium and Canada. He has been interviewed on CNN, featured in magazines and books, including covers of Juxtapoz magazine. [PosterCabaret.com]
