Surreal Subconscious Dementia Paintings 1 editions

Cover of: Surreal Subconscious Dementia Paintings | Eadweard r. York

"Eadweard has constantly pushed the boundaries of conceptual,contemporary, avant-garde art as an outsider whose distinctive, surreal, pop-punk, dada, anti-art style has set him apart from the conformist while elevating his status as an underground icon. He is the founder of the Destructionist Art Movement, The Museum of Cheap Art, and The Omaha Center for Contemporary Art. Throughout his career, Eadweard has held numerous major solo exhibitions creating a loyal underground fan base / following. His legendary art, public reaction performances, and installations have been quite influential, sometimes confrontational, and always at the forefront in the art world. “…In a society saturated with art galleries, and magazines full of insipid, copycat artist who follow all the current trends like a bunch of sheep, since they are not true artist. It is quite refreshing to find a genuine, visionary, conceptual artist. Eadweard R. York is one of a handful of contemporary American artists working today with a unique style that is quite powerful, instantly recognizable, and whose reputation precedes his infamous persona. When you flip through the pages of art history you see influential artwork's by Warhol, Dali, Beuys, Klee, Hundertwasser, Bellmer, Bacon, DeKooning, Hirst, Pettibon, Debuffet, and now the work of Eadweard joins these masters on the same page.” ArtReview "Personally I consider him one of the best American artists of today, and with great pleasure I pass the torch to him." Marcel Duchamp"
