You may not know his name, but his art is everywhere. It’s on your Apple watch, splashed on the sides of buildings, exhibited in countless galleries around the world, in title designs for films by Sofia Coppola and Spike Jonze and featured in collabs with Vans, Warby Parker, Nike and more. One of the most prolific artists of his time, Geoff McFetridge has undoubtedly influenced the way the world looks. The antithesis of the archetypal artist fueled by drugs, alcohol and chaos, what sets the prodigious McFetridge apart is his quest for balance as a father, ultramarathoner and designer. In Geoff McFetridge: Drawing a Life, fellow artist and director Dan Covert offers unprecedented access into McFetridge’s multicolored world, painting an intimate portrait of a man whose work is guided by intention and authenticity. Deeply thoughtful and illuminating, the film reveals the details of McFetridge’s life and work while delving further into the universal questions of what makes a fulfilling life.
