Even More Of My Favorite Art Pieces (Mondays)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for me to share some more art pieces with you wonderful people! I hope you guys are ready for some interesting pieces. Now, grab a paintbrush, and let’s get started!

  • Riddle Me This, Batman by Jean-Michel Basquiat 1987 Acrylic and oil paintstick on canvas: I absolutely adore this fantastic piece! It’s one of Basquiat’s more unique pieces, and I love how he uses pop culture to his advantage. The piece has 2 main figures; a sinister looking Joker, and an inebriated Riddler. The close attention to the detail of these figures really makes this painting stand out. I’m also very impressed at the way he uses The Joker’s signature laugh. I can’t give this piece enough praise, and I’d love to hear what you guys think of it in the comment’s section below.

  • Toke Kilowatt by Larry Carlson  Digital Surreal Photography (info about medium from Larry Carlson’s website larrycarlson.com) This has got to be one of Carlson’s funniest pieces, and boy do I love it! The background of the piece is very colorful and filled with abstract snowflakes. The main figure in this piece appears to be a extremely high anthropomorphic idol that’s smoking a collage of pipes. There also appears to be lightning and two arms popping out of its head. The figure reminds me a lot of Magritte’s piece, The Cripple, in that it uses multiple pipes. I would love to hear what you guys think of this piece, and I hope that you find it as funny as I did.
