    Off the Wall Art of the Absurd HC (2018 Gingko Press) 1-1ST Off the Wall Art of the Absurd HC (2018 Gingko Press) 1-1ST

    1st printing.

    Art by Alex Gamsu Jenkins, Chau Luong, Craigio Hopson, Dan Woodger, Dave Calver, DERRENGUETA, Duch, Emil Sellström, ESTOCAFICH, Gary Taxali Studio, George(s), Josh Freydkis, Kelly Puissegur, Kyung Me, Lai Tat Tat Wing, Laurina Paperina, Loïc Movellan, Marianne Gretteberg Engedal, Nadine Redlich, Paola Ciarska, Paul Paetzel, Roberts Rurans, Roman Klonek, Roope Eronen, Sarah Haug, Sebastian Schwamm, Soña Lee, Stefhany Y. Lozano, Toby Leigh and Zhang Liang.

    A vivid exploration of peculiar art, Off the Wall is a funhouse tour through the darkly comedic minds of more than twenty-five artists from around the world. From representational to barely recognizable, the illustrations and comics showcased here never fail to evoke the special blend of humor and horror that the subconscious mind finds so irresistible. Talking pets, repurposed pop-culture icons and troubled eroticism are only a few of the odd themes you'll find recurring within this one-of-a-kind collection. Short interviews with the artists allow a peek behind the curtain, and offer insight into the creative processes that lead to such off-kilter, unsettling and strangely compelling art.

    Through his highly subversive art Ron English (b. 1959) has bombed the global landscape with striking and often unsettling imagery. He coined the term" POPaganda" to describe his signature and darkly satirical renderings of corporate branding icons. His work is populated with a vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters such as MC Supersized; the obese fast-food mascot featured in the movie Supersize Me; and Abraham Obama, which fused America's 16th and 44th Presidents.

    This book is the first complete retrospective of English's work, compiling his paintings, illustrations, toys, sculpture, street art, and "agit-pop." Additionally, it contains a lengthy and comprehensive interview with the artist conducted exclusively for this publication.

    1st printing.

    Text and art by Robert Chesley Osborn. Foreword by Garry Trudeau.

    The drawings of Robert Osborn, one of America's most admired artists and satirists, have provided trenchant comment on the American scene for the past four decades. His keen intuitive sense, coupled with the distinctive line from his brush, has added a dimension to the happenings of our time.

    The ingredients of an Osborn drawing are, in various combinations, humor, indignation, motion, and satire -- not to mention artistry. Now, in this revealing book about himself, he shows what makes up the man and the artist.

    Combining a candid text, personal photographs, and a wealth of pictures, Osborn on Osborn is a striking retrospective of Osborn's total output, from his earliest efforts, to serious paintings, to the evolution of his own unique style.

    Osborn went from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, to Yale, then to Europe to study art; and he suffered pangs of failure as a painter. Only after his Dilbert training-manual cartoons saved hundreds of lives during World War II did his capacities as a drawer begin to receive deserved recognition -- in such magazines as Harper's, Life, Look, Esquire, Vogue, Time and the New Republic, as well as in numerous newspapers and books.

    This is a man with strong loves and hates. He loves Matisse, Miro, Mozart, automobiles and airplanes, duck shooting and trout fishing. He hates war, smoking, Mussolini, and the deterioration of quality in America.

    This is also a man with a tremendous sense of enjoyment. Osborn writes as he draws -- with humor, compassion, and insight -- and his extraordinary personality and delight in life shine through this self-portrait.
