TRELA MEDIA and Guy Richards Smit just dropped an excellent new art book that gives off great vibes, subversive spunk and radiant painterly gusto. The 400 or so paintings in this book amount to a black comedy vanitas and fun optical jolt brimming with wicked watercolors, wise words and gouache graphics. Depictions of death have never looked so cool!

Everything seems caught in some macabre cartoon kaleidoscope and fantasmagoric still life. Guy’s expressionistic, gestural and wild style touch embodies a psychedelic/psychotic torque accompanied with cheeky catchphrases like “doubling down”, “gaming the system” and “pussy grabber.” We love his herniating smudges, wacky-wavy color fields and warped skeletal insanities coupled with existential/fatalistic vertigo.

There are echoes of Hirst-esque abstraction, Pieter Claesz-like outsider art, and top-notch composition à la Utagawa Kuniyoshi – 歌川 國芳. There are also references to Hannah Arendt‘s ‘banality of evil‘ concept, the Khmer Rouge’s grotesque ‘Killing Fields‘ and Shakespeare’s Hamlet. With essays and Q&As by artsy smarty pants Jerry Brotton, Christian Viveros-Fauné and Ariela Gittlen, etc., this book is a pedagogical gem that will make you think about life, death, chance, and our clusterfuck culture.

Guy (below) is a multimedia madman, creative rabble-rouser and New Wave sparkplug (he is also a member of alt-sound outfit Maxi Geil & PlayColt!). He even plays the role of a Speedy Gonzales courier recently, delivering the brand new book via bicycle to NYC’s semi-locked down, WuFlu-plagued art-deprived denizens.
