Beirut born, American raised El Rassi's autobiography about life in America as an Arab in a post-9/11 world might be the most important book to come out of the tragedy. He offers us a window from the inside out and shows us our own misconceptions, prejudices, and errors. Brilliant.
Here are Ryden's works prior to The Tree Show. Subversive content matched with classic technique, this little book is a gem. Ryden has this sharp ability to grab you by the collar and make you think. But he doesn't have to shock to do it, he lures you in. Unfamiliar with his work? This is the place to start.
Diaz's collection reminds us of lost treasures dug up from the remnants of a fallen castle. Eerie, yet with a stunning, classic presentation, these paintings are journeys and windows. Shamans and shadows and the dirt of the Chicano Southwest collide in remarkable ways here.
Nakazawa was seven years old and living in Hiroshima when the atomic bomb was dropped on his hometown. His graphic novel series about the immediate days before and after the bomb was dropped is one of the most important pieces of literature we have on the day. As important as Maus or Hersey's Hiroshima, Nakazawa's saga is a timeless document about war and the human heart. This should be required reading in schools.
A tour through modern street art and the place where it collides with politics, Abraham Obama is a raw look at underground American politics. In the forthcoming election season nothing could be more important.
Hi-Fructose is the magazine your art teacher doesn't want you to read. Here's the American underground collected in one spot: the pop-surrealists, the manifesto makers, the dangerous and the glorious. This is the second volume of the magazine's issues. Welcome.
Billy Shire's La Luz de Jesus gallery has been the lynchpin for underground and progressive art in this country for 25 years. To celebrate the gallery's anniversary Shire organized a massive show which is cataloged here. The best started here and are in this collection: Ed Hardy, Matt Groening, Jaw Cooper, Robert Williams (who did G'nR's covers), the Clayton Brothers and more. Legendary.
Barber is one of America's finest tattoo artists. Here he shows himself to be one of our best painters as well. Memoir is a tour through the tattoo world, it's patrons and saints, madmen and artists. It is also a look at one man's own art and how the creative act must stand above all. Brilliant, beautiful work.
A modern re-telling like you've never seen before. Pinocchio is a war machine made by big industry and set loose in a world of hitmen, strippers, drugs, bars, toxic monsters and hard-boiled detectives. Winshluss has made the perfect wordless comic: you'll get everything that is going on and the focus on the panels expands the sense of story greatly. A true masterpiece and utterly unforgettable commentary on the 21st century.
