Schmidt is an illustrator with a penchant for mixing anti-capitalist sentiment with ancient mythology. Her work is smart, sexy, and pop-obsessed. Illustrations...

Gary Petersen is originally from Staten Island, has a studio now in Bushwick, and lives full-time in Hoboken, NJ. Yet the artist’s statement on his homepage states an interest in forging a “California/pop sensibility.” He’s done it.

New Yorkers not aware of Peter B. Jones should really change that… asap. Among Iroquois and other Native American cultures, Jones is a household name. To the rest of us, his work remains largely unknown. Raised on a reservation in Onondaga, NY, the artist came of age in the late 1960s and used pop art...

Astro Girl-Rey


Rey-Zorro (nee Claudia Rey) spent the last thirty years deconstructing popular modes of communication and has now arrived at a new expression she calls “disinstallation.” At its heart, disinstallation takes cultural signifiers—advertisements, logos, superheroes—and removes them from their native context.
