Giant Robot is proud to present new works by San Francisco-based artist Matt Furie at GRNY.
Matt Furie creates richly detailed and hyper colored illustrations and paintings that crossbreed the hyper detail of Basil Wolverton, primal appeal of Fraggle Rock and Labyrinth, and unrestrained youth of Chuck E. Cheese. In addition to showing his works in galleries around the world, Furie’s storytelling is showcased in Boy’s Club, which is published by Buenaventura Press and not approved by the Comics Code.
For Animal Style, Furie is creating a mix of colorful anthropomorphic characters, monster families, and animal wizards and warriors. He promises over 70 original pieces of art, most of which will be small and affordable.
Giant Robot was born as a Los Angeles-based magazine about Asian, Asian-American, and new hybrid culture in 1994, but has evolved into a full-service pop culture provider with shops and galleries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City, as well as an online equivalent.
A reception for the artist will be held from 6:30 – 10:00 on Saturday, August 7. For more information about the show, GRNY, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
