OK. bei uns liegt SHAG als tischset vor. Sie wissen schon so richtig pop auf dem fruehstueckstisch. von da ab konnten wir uns von SHAG nicht mehr trennen. aber wer oder was ist SHAG?!

FIRST :: THE HIPPEY ROOTS
“The paintings are based on stylized commercial advertising from the mid 50’s through the mid-sixties. Back then, a lot of magazine ads, TV commercials, and product packaging had sort of cubist-cartoonish look, which I’ve appropriated and expanded upon for these Shag paintings.” (SHAG im interview mit modculture)

SECOND :: THE ART ESTABLISHMENT
“Initially I was completely ignored by the fine art world, with the exception of a few galleries that dealt with West Coast, Lowbrow artists. Lately though, legitimate galleries and serious art collectors have been after me with increasing diligence. The museums are still turning up their noses at me, with a couple exceptions.” (SHAG im interview mit modculture)

THIRD :: RETRO MUSIC
“Right now I listen to a lot of DJ versions of exotica and lounge, like Dimitre from Paris and the Karminsky Experience. They take old lounge records and sample and loop them to make them more modern. It seems like a way to hear a lot of old records in a really fresh and exciting way.” (SHAG im interview mit KittyKitty)

LAST :: DIE MERCHANDISE OASE VON SHAG
” Just search eBay for SHAG. The artist formerly known as JoSH AGle has taken marketing to a new level, astutely citing Keith Haring’s giddy ‘80s exercises in branding as a precedent.” ( Doug Harvey – LA Weekly)

sei es wie es sie – SHAG ist definitiv ein unwiderstehlicher retroshick. bis ein neues set auf den tisch kommt. 😉
