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.
