That right there is a Mark Ryden. He’s a Pop Surrealist artist from California whose work is often a little less serene than the Fur Girl you see above. But for today’s purposes the Fur Girl is a perfect example of what I want to show you even though his Tree Show is more a favourite of mine.
See how serious I can be when I’m talking about art. Little Miss. Super Serious. Because art is serious and meant to be revered and gasped at with a certain solemn nature. No it isn’t. Art’s fun. You don’t need to be intimidated by art or artists. All you need to do is like it or not like it. And if you don’t like something everyone else thinks you should then that’s their problem. Place your velvet Holly Hobby next to your Hang in There kitten poster, sit back and admire.
