Imin Yeh and Art Hazelwood held a woodcut competition at the Southern Graphics Conference in March 2014. The competition took place at the Compound Gallery in Oakland. Here displayed are the posters for the event. Four by Hazelwood, one by Yeh.
Upstart to the Woodcut Battle Arena Imin “The MDF” Yeh, has laid down the challenge and called Art “Gargantua” Hazelwood out from his long hibernation to compete in a truly sensationalistic woodcut bout.
Standing just shy of 5 feet 2, Yeh is a powerhouse in the use of bold graphics and conceptual right hooks. Hazelwood, standing at a lethargic 6″6′, using a doggerel form of undercuts, is famous for dirty tricks and a long list of secret carving tools. It’ll be a fight to the finish in 2014′s WBA fight of the Bay Area. Both adversaries have their own satirical strengths, and neither can afford to simply run through their paces.
