Marc Bell: new book and tour
Marc Bell (his blog with lotsa work lives HERE) is an internationally renowned artist who has been producing his highly intricate, absurdist work for well over ten years, and has been greatly influential to a new generation of artists working in a similar vein. Embedded in his drawings is a complex and layered wordplay which alludes to comics, folk art, popular culture, and Fine Art, yet the work remains deeply funny. Bell’s works vary from pen and ink drawings colored with subtle watercolors, to comics, to elaborate mixed media cardboard constructions. Although he’s produced several other books, all this varied richness has been assembled together for the first time in the Drawn and Quarterly book HOT POTATOE.
