Mitch O’Connell‘s work pays homage to mid-century populuxe ephemera. Poring over the pages of his massive new art book, Mitch O’Connell the World’s Best Artist by Mitch O’Connell, one is stunned by how remarkably talented he is.
Mitch O’Connell can be summed up in 3 words: Hot, Handsome and Hunkalicious. His stunning illustration work has been featured in magazines from Newsweek, Playboy and GQ to the New York Times, on the covers of million selling CD’s and used in advertising campaigns from McDonald’s to Coca-Cola. His fine art masterpieces have been exhibited from New York to Berlin to Tokyo and his tantalizing tattoo designs are a fixture on the walls of tattoo shops around the world. And, truth be told, he deslikes gallery owners and art directors who favor artists whose work is “good”.
Humorous and masterful, this is the world of art where big eyed kittens, nude beehived women and rockabilly flaming skulls collide, encompassing everything from doodles in school books to tour de force museum masterpiecesMitch O’Connell, the World’s Best Artist by Mitch O’Connell, is a career spanning retrospective of work from the king of kitsch, Mitch O’Connell. This full-color, 284 page tome —resplendent with a foam-filled, vinyl, glitter-enhanced cover — collects all the good stuff (the crappy art is under lock and key) from this prolific pop artist. So, if you appreciate the finer things in life, such as beehives, boobs, and big-eyed kittens, you will not want to miss this book.
