‘THE CARS’ RIC OCASEK ART EXHIBIT SHOWS DRAWINGS SPANNING 30 YEARS
Who knew Ric Ocasek was so talented in fine arts? I find this bit o’ news quite coincidental as I was just thinking about Ocasek over the weekend, when I heard one of The Cars’ songs on the radio, and wondered ‘what ever happened to him’?
What a cute Tea Cup Series! So dainty and colorful. Quan Vu is an artist based out of San Fransisco, CA. Not only does he make these fantastic works of art, he has also created Fonts as well.
Noma Bar is an Israeli born illustrator. During the first Gulf War, Bar discovered his interest in a unique combination of caricature and pictograms. While staying with his family in a shelter he sketched the likeness of Saddam Hussein around the radioactive symbol he found in a newspaper.
Illustrator Noma Bar’s work is so simple, yet so clever you can’t fail to be impressed. One half of Bar’s work provides stark political or social commentary within simple graphic forms, whilst the other half manipulates everyday icons to create funny images that make you look once, twice, three times.
Her exhibition runs from April 1 – 30th, 2010.

On Thursday, April 1, 2010 at 8:00 am PDT, Porterhouse Fine Art Editions will be offering a new limited edition lithographic poster titled ”Incarnation” by Mark Ryden, for $500. It is one of the new paintings from Mark Ryden’s “The Gay Nineties Show,” which opens Thursday, April 29, 2010, at Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York, NY and runs through June 5, 2010.
In his hauntingly beautiful and masterfully executed oil paintings, Ryden creates his own contemporary mythologies whose archetypes include fairy tale creatures, historical figures, and pop cultural icons. Seamlessly juxtaposing macabre motifs like meat grinders and disembodied presidents with eye-pleasing ingénues and seductive landscapes, the artist produces a vision of society in which menace and comfort are inseparably interwoven.
These labor-intensive canvasses deftly rework centuries of art history, combining the grandeur of Spanish and Italian religious painting with the decorative richness of Old Master compositions and the lush textures of French Neo-Classicism. Go here to find out more information about Mark Ryden’s ‘The Gay 90′s: Old Tyme Art Show.
