Pretty Strange

When I first saw Dan Lydersen's work, they were interesting and funny. Some of you might think, WTF? When you understand Dan's concept, it will make sense. In short, his work consist of historical paintings, clashed with contemporary advertising and popular culture, striking the notion of human commercialism verses morality to animals. Dan graduated with an MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute and have been working as a full time artist. His work is represented by Jack Fischer Gallery in San Francisco. Check his website to view additional work and read his entire artist statement of his paintings.
