Angst Art and Mass Hysteria – ‘PEEKASSO’
PEEKASSO’s manic, sassy and psychotropic memes will make you scream.
Postmodern life is careening out of control. In these turbulent, angst-elevated times, verve-y vector art makes us feel a bit more balanced (at least that’s the case at VIVISXN). Currently on our ‘cool radar’ is the work of Peter Stemmler, a.k.a PEEKASSO, an internet artist who hits you hard with his avalanche of ideological paroxysms, political faux pas, memetic porn and miasma of tongue-in-cheek pizzazz.
His pulsing, strobing and thought-provoking GIFs are an amazing summary of complex social issues. PEEKASSO channels our collective id into tickling, over-the-top and unabashedly honest memes that make us wanna scream (and laugh). Mashing-up corporate marketing, pop culture, internet insanity and our dangerous digital obsessions, these GIFs concretize our exact emotions and feelings, and get our serotonin levels piquing. Peter’s art is a web-warping whammy and delightful depiction of our collective mass hysteria. Grrrrrrrrrr. We can’t stop staring at his double-coded metaphors and savvy subliminal slams.
