Synopsis: The first comprehensive and long-overdue monograph of popular rising-star alternative visual artist Eric White, a darling of the Juxtapoz crowd, containing many previously unpublished new works. Eric White generates a world of masterfully executed, surreal figurative painting. His work is inspired by cinema?the golden age of directors David Lynch and Charlie Kaufman?and a pop culture washed through satire: a fantastical schizophrenic dream logic. White?s name is now mentioned alongside other celebrated alternative-gone-mainstream canonical artists such as Mark Ryden, Ron English, and Robert Williams.
This book covers the breadth of his career, from his earliest acrylics and works on paper to his subverted ?album-cover art? to the work he describes as paranoid social realism: a window into an invented alternate Hollywood and world around us, one that is stretched, distorted, dark, and extremely witty.
