While you might not be familiar with Mike Davis, you are likely to be familiar with his work. Since moving to Minneapolis in 2003, the Nashville native has created a variety of gig posters, including pieces for Bonnaroo, Umphrey’s McGee, and Snoop Dogg. He’s a co-founder of Burlesque of North America, and his designs can be seen on beer cans (he worked on the label for Har Mar Superstar’s collab with Modist Brewing), on T-shirts (his Prince tribute is particularly special), and on the “Refugees Welcome” stickers and signs that have been popping up in business windows around town. His work draws from a variety of sources, including busy Richard Scarry children’s books, trippy ’70s blacklight posters, and local pro wrestlers. This Saturday, he’ll be hosting his first solo show at CO Exhibitions, where you can check out 25 years’ worth of creative ephemera, including test prints, projects, posters, and new works.
