‘My Favorite Kind of American Series’ Poster & Other Works by Luis Gispert

15 Jul

OHWOW presents its first collaborative project with Brooklyn based artist Luis Gispert. Gispert is a filmmaker, photographer, and sculptor, addressing a variety of topics in his work such as the infiltration of subcultures on the mainstream and the fragmented American experience.

My Favorite Kind Of American Series Poster features two iconic Gispert images.  The front side showcases L.V. Escalades (shown below) and the back side showcases B-29.  Both images were executed by the artist in 2009 and are part of his newest body of work.

L.V. Escalade

Regardless of the vehicle or message, the aesthetic leans toward theatric as his seductive imagery delivers a blend of opulent artifice with clever indications of acute subtexts. From photographs of surreal landscapes viewed from elaborate cockpits to stylized sculptures of tricked-out speaker systems, the work acts as a composite, melding what is familiar with the unexpected. Gispert’s message points out the fragile balance between consummate reality and the decorated facades we tend to build around it.

Here are additional works by Luis Guisbert…
