Bill Barminski

claytonjunior
Bill Barminski is a versatile artist who draws from popular culture to create visually complex paintings.

They function as cutting commentaries on our consumer culture by wittily appropriating images from advertising's past.

In addition to making paintings, Barminski has also produced CD- ROMs that not only animate his paintings, but also give life and voice to the characters of his imagination.

He is also the creator of previously mentioned gas mask designs based on cartoon characters shown at illegal art.
