About All Star Press:
Sports fans who love art and art fans who love sports can rejoice as Chicago‘s first sports art gallery is now open in Logan Square. All Star Press is a new retail space and gallery in Logan Square dedicated to spreading our love and desire for printed material, with a focus in the world of sports, music and fine art. We are driven by a constant emphasis on quality making each one of our prints an All Star.
All Star Press is run and operated by Zissou Tasseff-Elenkoff, a designer and print maker based out of Chicago for the past decade.
Along with being one of the most prolific commercial screen printers in the country, Zissou made his mark in the Chicago art scene when he founded Galerie F in 2012. With All Star Press Zissou hopes to spread his life long passion for sports and create affordable, accessible sports art for fans world wide.
Tasseff-Elenkoff has combined his experience running various businesses with his love for illustration and print media to create a new store, gallery & e-commerce shop devoted to honoring the creativity of sports through posters, shirts, pins an more.
The England native graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and started his screen-printing business, FugScreens Studios, over 11 years ago making gig-posters for local bands, major artists and businesses all over the world.
Most recently, Tasseff-Elenkoff teamed up with Nike/Jordan brand to illustrate and screen-print posters of all 29 original Air Jordan shoes. Working with the mecca in sports apparel and traveling to America to attend Phillies games as a kid since he was 4 years old, Tasseff-Elenkoff had all the inspiration he needed to start up All Star Press.
