Of Monumental Proportions!

Welcome to the Big World of Claes Oldenburg @ Artsy.net. Here you will find a collection of Oldenburg's fine art pieces, sketches, and prints. Lots of his worx here are for sale and in different sizes to fit your Artsy Up-Scale Lifestyle. Artsy's website provide you with his bio and many cross references to other artists associated with Claes Oldenburg.

When one thinks "BIGGER IS BETTER," one thinks of Claes Oldenburg, who has given us familiar objects at quite an enormous scale. His Pop Art leaves us questioning our desire to Super-Size things.

Many of Oldenburg's sketches have yet to come to life as monumental sculptures. But here at Artsy you can view their whimsical ironic meanings and imagine them in any scale.

Get a pleasing eyeful of fine artist Dennis Ziemienski's worx @ Facebook's Ziemienski Studio Site.
Dennis has transformed from a top notch illustrator of the 80's to a super talent in the field of fine art of the 2000+. Paintings of lost neon signs and vintage cars in Southwestern settings are a roadside attraction to the wonderful world of Dennis Ziemienski. 
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles are painted with sharp stroke precision leaving enough roughed out for the viewers imagination to fill in. I noticed a little J.C. Leyendecker and Howard Plye in these paintings.
Welcome to the Past brought forward to the Present for what I think is an incredible Future for Dennis Ziemienski and his worx!

The Bronto Stomp!

UK illustrator/designer Bob Lawrie just sent me this commercial he worked on 40 years ago in the Stone Age of Graphic Design. Weird as Krazy-Kan-B!
