Anima Animals by Mark Ryden
Out of stock
Incredible new portraits of imagined creatures by the pop-surrealist painter Mark Ryden
For more than 20 years Mark Ryden has created a remarkable managerie of half-animal, half-plush creatures. Viweres have enjoyed everything from his Snow Yak to his very personal interpretation of the California bear. Freely inspired by the Rushton toys that enjoyed their heyday in America in the '60s and '70s, these creatures are now the object of a cult worship in contemporary art.
For lovers of contemporary art and surrealism, this book reveals the background of the 20 new paintings for his 2020 show at Emmanuel Perrotin's gallery in Shanghai. You will also find some of his most iconic master-pieces showcasing yaks and other creatures of his own mythology.
