Geoff's custom bike is easier to ride than it looks but parking's a nightmare...

Graphic design & fine art powerhouse GEOFF McFETRIDGE is a force of nature, consistently pulling off incredibly compelling installations in an oftentimes-static art scene. Such is the case with both of the young artist's current exhibitions (in radically different scales) at Seattle's OLYMPIC SCULPTURE PARK and the fantastic MOLLUSK SURF SHOP in San Francisco. Creating a massive landscape of sculptural and printed works for the long-term installation "In The Mind" in Seattle that opened late last month, McFetridge's bold imagery creates a playful environment—the centerpiece of which is a huge and amazing blue trumpet/bicycle sculpture—that is daunting in its scale. In contrast, the artist's exhibit "Bury Me in the Sand" in San Francisco is a much smaller-scale but equally compelling one nonetheless. Featuring a large array of hand-drawn and printed works along with custom skateboards, McFetridge's Mollusk show is a very intimate, personal affair, with the artist's hand evident in all the works on display.
