Monthly Residency: Monster Rally (Week 2)
Monster Rally aka Teddy Feighan returns with news of his very first gallery exhibit, as well as an untamable infatuation with Doom and his cartoony persona.
Monster Rally: Week 2
I’ve spent the better part of the past seven days working on and organizing my artwork. I’m going to be showing my work for the first time in New York next week at the End of Century Gallery. The show is going to feature several of my recent paper collage works. In addition to the visual work, I’m going to be playing the opening of the show next Friday (More about the show).
While working on what seems to be endless framing, I’ve been listening almost exclusively to Metal Fingers Special Herbs Volumes 0-9. For those of you not familiar with this instrumental series of productions by DOOM, I would stop whatever you’re doing right now and listen immediately (full albums available Spotify).
One of my favorite things about DOOM is his cartoony villain persona. This, combined with dedicated and talented fans, has lead to some of the best music-related art. Last year for Christmas my fiancé gave me this (below) print of Jason Jagel’s piece, ‘Part of a Complete Breakfast’, which serves as the cover for ‘MM Food‘.
Jagel is one of my favorite artists working today. I love his use of multiple perspectives, geometric shapes, and extremely bold colors. You can really get lost in his work for hours and his book ‘Funshine 73‘ is a must have for your library.
Here are some of my other favorite DOOM pieces:
