Fly Spy with my swiping eye… the free faded poptocular world of Greg Gossel’s technicolor mind #letsplay
Greg Gossel was born in 1982 in western Wisconsin. With a background in design, his work is an expressive interplay of many diverse words, images, and gestures. Gossel’s multi-layered work illustrates a visual history of change and process throughout each piece. His work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and abroad, including San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Copenhagen, and London.
What I like about this one is the pop media pastiche brought to modcollage portraiture… I love the technicolor fade, the celebrity splayed across newsprint… the gazing eye and precise design… the perfectly suspended world of runway art celebreality culture to the fore … from the glam, through the gamut gutter of a painter’s projected mind, to the gallery
His commercial clients include Levi’s, Burton Snowboards, Stussy, VICE Magazine, and Interscope Records while his work has been published in The San Francisco Chronicle, Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine, Artslant, and ROJO Magazine. Greg currently resides in Minneapolis, MN.
