Brooklyn-based Michael Boswell’s posters are hard to define, sitting somewhere between fine art and design they are incredibly well executed and highly entertaining. Graphic linework and cigarettes masquerading as patterns, a declaration of feminist revolutions “per minute” and a hot dog welcoming viewers with open arms form the personal practice of the designer whose day job is on the creative team for Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles at Nickelodeon.

Since completing his MA he has been sharing a space with fellow Cranbrook Acadamy of Art graduates, working on an ongoing series of 4D fur jackets, giant dildos and column experiments as well as his poster work and the valiant role of keeping the Hero Turtles alive off-air. Michael’s work strikes the difficult balance of lightness and skill, he is big on humour and low on pretension and his strange things are a joy to behold.
