Inspired by Camille Rose Garcia

Back when I was a scrambly, bad-haircut art student I came across the work of American artist Camille Rose Garcia and was dumbstruck, since then I have been a fan! Her eerie characters made of swooping dark line-work combined with jarring acid-trip colors and macabre themes are wonderful nightmares.

From her own website:

“Garcia’s layered, broken narrative paintings of wasteland fairy tales are influenced by William Burroughs’ cut-up writings and surrealist film, as well as vintage Disney and Fleischer cartoons, acting as critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias, blending nostalgic pop culture references with a satirical slant on modern society.

Her work has been displayed internationally and featured in numerous magazines including Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, and Modern Painter, and is included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum as well as the San Jose Museum of Art, which held a retrospective of her work, Tragic Kingdom,in 2007.”

I love artwork with a touch of satire or critique on society, and her pieces never fail in that department!

We hope you’ll take a second to check out some of her work on her website and get inspired! She also has an instagram and shop!!!
