Lynda Barry Cartoon Art

Famed cartoonist Lynda Barry is currently showing her work from past 35 years at Adam Baumgold Gallery in the exhibition: Lynda Barry, Everything: Part I. The exhibition includes work from her seminal books as well as works that were published in Raw, The Village Voice, Esquire, Newsweek and The New York Times, among others.

Central to all her many bodies of work is Barry’s energetic line and her boisterous sense of humor. In some of her earliest works, for example, a cactus tries to seduce a woman saying, “Lola, can we be sure of anything in this crazy world? All I know are your eyes tonight and this wild beating of my heart.” For Barry, drawing and storytelling are integrated activities.

1273 New Impossibly Tiny Landscapes Painted on Food by Hasan Kale
From onion peels to kiwi seeds or even bits of chocolate, it seems any canvas is sufficient for Turkish artist Hasan Kale as long as it meets the requirement of being incredibly tiny. Hasan delights in the challenge of depicting landscapes of his native Istanbul in the most infinitesimal of brush strokes, a feat that requires the use of a magnifying glass to appreciate the details of each piece. While the longevity of each object he paints is questionable, the steadiness of his hand is impressive to witness.

French Artist Turns Everyday Objects into Playful Characters

1252 French Artist Turns Everyday Objects into Playful Characters

With a creative eye, the casual observer can espy characters or faces in the everyday objects all around us. French artist Gilbert Legrand takes this a step further by painting and otherwise modifying totally mundane objects to turn them into cute characters and give them new life.

Legrand lets his active imagination soar by painting small details onto these everyday objects to help us see them the way he does. With the addition of a face and maybe some arms and legs, a paintbrush can become a mangled fox, a hinge can become a shady salesman, and a juicer becomes a woman emerging from a pool.

Hopefully, Legrand’s wildly imaginative creations will help you find the fun characters hidden all around you!
