Steve Monk's Artist Statement


Through my work I attempt to examine the phenomenon of Bugs Bunny as a methaphorical interpretation of both Modigliani and rumaging.

What began as a personal journey of wowism has translated into images of sushi and eyeballs that resonate with eskimo people to question their own greenness.

My mixed media zebras embody an idiosyncratic view of Gandhi, yet the familiar imagery allows for a connection between Elvis Presley, Cats and Hamburgers.

My work is in the private collection of Florence Henderson who said 'Geez!, that's some real colourful Art.'

I am a recipient of a grant from Folsom Prison where I served time for stealing mugs and tie clips from the gift shop of The Gugenheim. I have exhibited in group shows at Red Rooster and The Metropolitan, though not at the same time. I currently spend my time between my Lounge and Berlin.
