"George Condo: Mental States" Last Days...

Good morning contemporary art lovers!
For those who haven't seen the exhibition yet, there is only a few days left and it's worth. George Condo is an American visual artist who lives and works in New York and who is know for being a part of the new emerging East Village art scene. His paintings are very specific and the New Museum shows a lot of them.

Condo's paintings are figurative but not realistic. One can say that it's a bit much. And I can understand. To appreciate his paintings you have to read between the lines. Paintings are humorous, funny, grotesque, absurd, and some of them are a caricature of classical masterpieces. His work is very prolific and one can easily say that his bank of references is huge and his knowledge impressive.  He gives an acerbic critic of our post-humanistic society.

The exhibition is accompanied by a beautiful 190-pages catalogue and runs til the end of the week. He's also know for his collaboration with Kanye West who is gonna make a performance at the next MoMA garden party.
