Crosshair

Crosshair Chicago

Since 1995, Dan MacAdam has been an active and visible designer and printer of silkscreened concert posters in Chicago, operating under the name Crosshair.  In addition to hundreds of poster and album cover art commissions for prominent musical artists such as The Black Keys, Wilco, Willie Nelson, Spoon, Tortoise, and Sonic Youth, Crosshair produces Dan’s own fine art screenprints.  Music posters and fine art alike draw upon Dan's original photography and trademark color separation techniques, which utilize anywhere from 5 to 20 different inks to produce Crosshair's distinctively detailed, immersive and vibrant prints and which frequently present man-made structures in contrast or consonance with their landscapes, in decay or in defiance of disintegration.
