(A/CA) Mark Ryden
Crowned "the high prince of Lowbrow," Mark Ryden has become a fixture of the contemporary alternative art movement. In his newest work, Mark Ryden: The Gay 90's
, the artist casts his skewed perspective toward the turn of the 19th-century with creepy yet beautiful works. With masterful painting technique and disquieting content, Ryden's newest paintings display his fascination with the earnest kitsch found in popular art of the end of the 1800s, yet reinforces how his paintings now more than ever are a skewering of both historical and current pop cultural touchstones.
