Lowbrow Artist Todd Schorr’s ‘Designed For Extinction’ at Ben Maltz Gallery

12 Jun

Todd Schorr’s ‘Designed For Extinction‘ opening reception is on June 26, 2010 and the exhibit will run till September 11, 2010 at Ben Maltz Gallery at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.

This solo exhibition features the paintings of the Los Angeles-based artist Todd Schorr, a leading figure in the world of “pop surrealism” and the “lowbrow.” Schorr is undeniably inspired by Renaissance masters such as Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, and Salvador Dali, as well as the early animated cartoons of Walt Disney and Max Fleischer, underground comics best exemplified by Zap, and classic films from the 1930’s such as King Kong and Frankenstein.

His highly polished, fantastic paintings are intricate narratives about evolution and the plight of man.

He has a new book out called ‘American Gap’, which you can purchase here at our Goodies Store under ‘Artists‘.
