Art comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes, themes, and mediums. The American painter Peter Saul is the focus of a new exhibition at Almine Rech in Paris. The exhibition is entitled “Art History is Wrong” and features a bevy of acrylic paintings that a bevy of madcap characters. No one is off-limits as we see images of Napoleon Bonaparte as a dog, as well as a painting of god and satan in a dysfunctional father-son relationship.
The collection is packed with inspiration from ‘60s comic book culture, as well as abstract and surrealist aesthetics. The pieces aim to shed light on socio-political issues while scoffing at art historical conventions. The gallery spoke about the exhibition in a statement that reads: “With a certain exuberance, he shows us the world as it is: disorderly and chaotic.” Take a look at a selection of pieces in the images below and find out more on Almine Rech’s website.
“Art History is Wrong” will remain on display until February 29th. Keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more art exhibitions and art installations coming soon.
