Fatherless is a print collective from Rockford, Illinois, that started in 2010. They have gained international attention with their print, installation and commission work using a lurid palette and bold graphic sense. The members operate as a unit collaborating freely with each other’s ideas and imagery. This process does not reveal any individual artist or “father” but rather an amalgam of the whole. Each piece is a one off monoprint that will never be repeated.

The collective power of the four individuals allows for a wide range of ambitious projects that satirizes what they see as “our consumer driven, media saturated, disposable culture.” Artists consist of Javier Jimenez, Greg Lang, Dave Menard, and Ben Rider (UK).
