With this entry we want to start a series of posts about artists that we like. Most of them are not so well known, but they deserve more attention. We don’t want to bother you with all kinds of sophisticated information; if you want to know more about that, you can easily find that on the internet. We just want to share the pictures with you.
American painter Mark Ryden is probably the most important artist of the so-called Pop Surrealist movement, an underground, pop-culture-infused art scene that emerged in the seventies in Southern California. As the name suggests, it combines elements from Pop Art and Surrealism.
(trivia: Before becoming a professional artistic painter Ryden worked as a commercial illustrator. He created numerous album covers including, Michael Jackson's Dangerous)
