Venturing out of painting, Milwaukee-based artist Reginald Baylor has turned his focus to building brands. After realizing the time it took him to finish a painting that most people couldn’t afford, Baylor turned to the examples of business-minded artists like Takashi Murakami, Kehinde Wiley, and Andy Warhol for the inspiration to imagine manufacturing creativity.
In 2018, in order to advance the creative industry, he relocated Reginald Baylor Studio to Walker’s Point where it now targets it’s energies on the design and development of brands. The diverse brands produced at Reginald Baylor Studio sells products and produces short films, while co-branding and offering specialized design services.
The RBS Brands, along with Creative Director, Melissa Courtney, are currently contracting with a multitude of talented creative professionals to enhance Milwaukee’s creative industry movement.
The Brands on exhibition include:
Poindexter + Prissy: a department store featuring high-end grit
Signature Squares: a brand for competitive design
Afronaut Mke: community led superhero storytelling platform
The Telegenic: a documentary film celebrating Milwaukee’s neighborhood festivals
Walkers Point Thursday Show: a film documentary about people, places and things in Walker’s
Point.
Please join the Union Art Gallery for this innovative exhibition, focusing on new models of creative output and the business of design, and showing what creativity can do for the community.
