Playfully Scary Art by Jeremy Fish

jeremy-fish

The artwork of Jeremy Fish is playfully scary and just plain fun to look at. Most of his art is rich with graphic detail with a minimal color palette. When viewing his work online you will immediately get his angle by the URL of his website, sillypinkbunnies.com.

I would like to think that somewhere between full-blown, howling death and a basket of newborn kittens exists a climate where the malice and the mirth can mingle. A couple of daisies on your grave, a little venom in your cocoa, some broken glass in your bouncy castle. This type of polar mixer can serve as an intriguing, endlessly entertaining, true-to-life foundation from which a smidgen of lore can grow. Exaggerate the extremes even a little, and the stories, characters, and places that emerge warp accordingly. It is the recognition and exploitation of this tension that immediately drew me to the work of upstate New York-born, San Francisco-based artist Jeremy Fish.
