It’s been a while since we posted about Columbus, Ohio based artist Joey Monsoon (featured) – and we don’t know why – there’s nothing out there like his work.
In the artists words: “Joey Monsoon’s paintings are an effort to construct revelations of our imperfections. Built on narrow structures of flesh and bone, the portraits depict the turbulence and resilience of the body. The subtle distortions of anatomy point inward to the marks of a life endured and overcome. The figures are isolated from contextual environs just as living tends to isolate the image one has of oneself. These paintings are brutal with beauty.”
