August 2017:

Freedom, told through line and color

Maxx Starr

Join us at 108 LA to preview Maxx Starr's short story and latest works on August 10th and 11th.

Freedom, Told Through Line and Color, takes the reader out for a night in New York, unpolished and authentic. Punctuated with bursts of color, the primal hieroglyphs illustrate the journey while the text sings accompaniment—bright, happy and positive.

Starr, a NYC artist and entrepreneur, has created a narrative style that he refers to as visual jazz. The book is one cohesive piece of art with the linear structure of a novel. He touches on the spontaneity of life before social media and mobile phones, when the only plan one needed was to see “where the night takes us.”
