Art can often take itself too seriously, like when they don't let you touch it at museums, or when Garfunkel got that 'fro-perm. Oh, that was natural? Then he should be taken seriously. For skillfully done art that's refreshingly playful, check out Matty8080.
From a dude with a wise-ass streak and some serious drawing skills, Matty8080 puts out wallet-friendly wall art that keeps you on your toes with super-realistically-drawn figures that're given an absurdist twist, also how Camus dances to Chubby Checker. Everything comes as high-res 600 DPI prints on acid-free 80lb card stock, including some that turn cuteness to the dark side, such as "My Little Pony, My Little Ghoul" showing a pink pony with T. Rex teeth (which he claims smells "vaguely of candy and rot"), "Carebears Become Werebears" (the cuddly toy with dead eyes and a bloody snout and claws), and "Ewoks On The Wild Side", depicting a pair of the critters looking pissed, probably because they didn't want to be in Jedi, either. Another, real-animal-driven collection includes the self-explanatory "Squirrel With A Keytar" and "Squid Versus Shark", portraying an epic battle between a giant cephalopod and a Great White (advantage squid!), plus there's a run of humans wearing animalia masks including a lion, chimp, hippo, panda, and grizzly bear, which is an animal mask you've probably never heard of, it's pretty underground. Oh, you have? Well...the Mountain Goats? Yeah, them.
Matty's even got some pop culture, such as "Chris O Hearts Thom Yorke", showing the stoned-looking Radiohead frontman with half of his face replaced by psychedelic curves and his teeth by a keyboard, plus he'll gladly custom-make any print shorter or taller -- which is what Garfunkel was going for with that 'fro, at least that's what Simon Says.
