Christophe Szpajdel Denied Entry Into The U.S. Putting Skids On Logo Exhibition In San Antonio
Belgium logo artist, Christophe Szpajdel has been denied passage into the United States at the port of Philadelphia. Szpajdel was scheduled to appear this Saturday, March 29th, 2014, in San Antonio, Texas at Bonds 007, to present art work from his recent book "Lord of the Logos: Designing the Metal Underground."
Promoters of the exhibition have stated his cancellation is the result of U.S. customs and beyond their control. They also issued a statement from Szpajdel:
“I would like to apologize to everyone for not being able to make the show. This is due to serious issues at the US Customs in Philadelphia who questioned me about the reasons for my trip. After hours of ripping me apart they decided to send me back to the UK.”
Although Szpajdel's art will no longer be on display, the band lineup at Bonds has not changed. Abazagoroth is scheduled to headline its first appearance in Texas. Obeisance, Blaspherian, Burial Shroud, Plutonian Shore and Emperial Massacre round out the bill.
Twenty years ago, Szpakdel became famous for drawing the Emperor logo. He also Graveland's logo. He told MU he is due to release "Ancient Modernism," the follow up to "Lord of the Logos," which includes new art pieces.
