In “Want To See A Sad Boy Smile? Pay Him,” his second book, GREATeclectic‘s pieces are pastiches – whole in-and-of themselves but even more so in context of one another. Pop & Politics are alive and well-contented bedfellows in this world. The personal space stands as the preeminent public place of judgment. Shadows dance in rigid rhythmic formation with neon strobes. The entire world coalesces into a kaleidoscopic cultural landscape… where we are presented with our own selves from before the mass-mediated mirror of Pop life.
Want To See A Sad Boy Smile? Pay Him is a 78 page book featuring selected pieces from Miami based artist GREATeclectic‘s eponymous series of work that culminated in his debut solo exhibition at Studio 900 in Atlanta, GA. Want To See A Sad Boy Smile? Pay Him is available via GREATeclectic’s Etsy store. Click here to preview the entire book.
