    Yogi Proctor is a fine artist and art director / graphic designer who has been working since the 1990s. Yogi has done graphic design for musical artists and skateboard brands, among many others. His fine artworks are often conceptual with a lot of deep thought behind them. In the fine art world, perhaps Yogi’s most well-known works are the fake photocopy machine he built by hand, and other similar pieces he calls decoys. “A decoy is a copy that, when placed in proximity to the original, reconfigures the perception of both…destabilizing notions of ‘artist’ and ‘originality’ with wit and agility.”–Yogi Proctor. That concept vaguely reminds me of Andy Warhol’s Brillo boxes. Enjoy a few photos from one of Yogi’s early art shows, Total Confusion is Popular, back in 2003. (Note: The pieces in this show are not decoys.) (Additional note: This note is not a decoy of the previous note.) (Final note: This note is not a decoy of any past, present or future notes.)
