Demetrius May

I’m really digging the work of Demetrius May, an Art Center and grad and Los Angeles resident. His paintings feature an odd mixture of nostalgia and pop culture, with halftones and really bright colors being popular themes. The two images above were my favorites, they’re both so bright and almost to the point of being surreal. Imagine one of these blown up to an enormous size and hanging on your wall… people would definitely notice.

    I enjoy how the character in the 2nd piece looks like a child, but also if you distort your eyes enough you see an old man. As if, all of us enjoy dressing up as a cowboy and eating a bowl of pink sugar!
