Timothy Dooley and Aaron Wilson, ​Midwest Pressed

Midwest Pressed is the collaborative artist duo of Aaron Wilson and Tim Dooley. Their approach to color is tastelessly compelling and their approach to printmaking is a combination of punk rock and magic. Wilson and Dooley's merging of high and low aesthetics are created with generative screen-printing processes and other layered graphic media.​
