I'm in love with this whimsical sculpture by Jim Mckenzie!
This piece sold right even before the pre-sale! His works on current display (and still some left for purchase) at Copro Galley in Bergamont Station, Santa Monica.
McKenzie is an American artist and director based in New York City. His sculptures and paintings often depict surrealist wonderlands occupied by highly saturated characters. He works as a commercial director, designer and animator at Aardman Nathan Love as well as a professor at School of Visual Arts. McKenzie has directed commercials for clients such as National Geographics, Capital One, H&R Block, and has recently helped in the creation of Xifaxan’s mascot, Gut Guy, who made his Super Bowl debut early this February.
