From fashion to music, Goth influences have crept into every area of pop culture, and nowhere is that influence creepier, more fascinating, and more playful than in the art world. Weirdo Noir is the follow-up volume to Weirdo Deluxe, the book that brought the once underground Low Brow art scene to prominence in the public eye. In these pages you'll find the latest and greatest work from 30 Low Brow arists who have embraced the dark side, employing gothic themes in their art. Spooky and witty, Weirdo Noir is destined to become a classic of the millennial Goth aesthetic.
American Surreal: The Art of Todd Schorr
Todd SchorrThe latest collection of paintings by one of contemporary surrealism's most influential artists. American Surreal picks up where Dreamland, Schorr's previous bestselling collection of mind-bending paintings left off. Look forward to countless hours of eye bulging investigative thought while examining the impeccably rendered subject matter that has become the hallmark of Schorr's outrageous vision. Schorr, one of the seminal figures in what has come to be known as the Lowbrow or Pop Surrealism art movement, has continually and systematically set the bar ever higher in his quest to bring classic old master painting technique to his pop culture infused subject matter. This latest collection continues that journey culminating with the epic masterpiece Ape Worship included in this volume. Schorr's paintings are the subject of two upcoming museum retrospectives, and are highly prized and coveted by collectors the world over. American Surreal is sure to satisfy those with an overly-developed visual appetite.
Dreamland
Todd Schorr, Doug HarveyTodd Schorr grew up in the 1950s in a world populated by Revell models, Mad Magazine, Mr. Peanut, and Mickey Mouse. These images fueled his artistic imagination, spawning vibrant, outlandish visions of Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny in a murderous pas de deux, hapless kiddies forced through flaming hoops, a genocidal egg hunt, and all other manner of mayhem. This illustrated tour of Schorr's best work is like a Saturday morning cartoon created by Hieronymous Bosch.
