The Art of the Mystical Shriner


We were just exposed to Jeff McMillan for the first time yesterday, and we're so glad we were. Shriners arrived in our daily Artist-a-day missive yesterday. Shriners in a supernatural death match. What does this mean? Only that Jeff McMillan is somehow the very definition of Pop Surrealism (if there is one) - pop culture icons (shriners, Yeti-like monsters, skulls) in surreal situations painted in classical style. Well, at least that's one of many definitions. Either way, Mr. McMillan's work is both funny and beautiful at the same time. He recently completed his first solo show, and we're sure many more are to come.

Go to his website and browse for a while. It's a great way to spend an hour.
