David MacDowell's art has been popping up a lot in group shows this year, and it's no wonder why. Mr. MacDowell brings a wild new vision to the world of Pop Surrealism, or whatever we want to call it this month. Mr. MacDowell takes a cup of pop culture, two tablespoons of satire, a few handfuls of vivid colors, sautes it in gorgeous technique, and then throws the whole thing in blender. What comes out is a satisfying meal of funny and thought-provoking art.
Check out Mr. MacDowell's commentaries on celebrity, art, and pop culture on his website. And watch your local galleries, because his paintings are coming to one near your soon. He is scheduled for at least 5 shows in the next year, incluing Crazy 4 Cult 2, this year's homage to cult movies at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, hosted by Kein Smith and Scott Mozier.
