My LSD trips aren’t this vivid.
Does Tyler own this painting?
No, but he would like to!
My first impression… Der Blaue Reiter meets WPA Social Realism.
Looks like Chagall and Kandinsky had a love child.
Well, they may not have been entirely sober during the conception…
Isn’t Russian Futurism an oxymoron? Is that mean?
Compare this Burliuk drawing (1914): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:David_Burliuk_Dokhlaya_Luna_1914.jpg
With this John Lennon drawing (1998 according to the website, but might be a little older): http://www.artbrokerage.com/John-Lennon/Bag-One-56460 ($6.900, by the way)
And these 1928 drawings from a mouse (a little less convincing but nevertheless): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mickey_Mouse_concept_art.jpg
Reading a little about him, first question is how can someone be described both futurist and neoprimitivist?
By thinking the future will be primitive?
I’d say the future turned out even more gaudy than he imagined
