9781933202242: KARTOON KINGS: THE GRAPHIC WORK OF SIMON GRENNEN AND CHRISTOPHER SPERANDIO

"Kartoon Kings," the first monograph and comprehensive analysis of the graphic artwork of Simon Grennan and Christopher Sperandio, is a collection of full-color images excerpted from comic book projects, video, billboards, and other of the artists collaborative public art media created over the past fifteen years. Supplementing the images are an interview with the artists by Kristina Olson and essays by Joshua Decter and Paul Krainak. Since the early 1990s, Simon Grennan and Christopher Sperandio have worked together as Grennan & Sperandio, creating over sixty art projects. In the art world, the name Grennan & Sperandio is known for work that is a blend of sardonic humor, sly politics, comics, and public space, and for art that gives a voice to people from all walks of life and invites them to take part in the creative process. Grennan & Sperandio collaborative artwork has appeared in museums and media internationally, including such diverse venues as Wired magazine, DC Comics, and the Museum of Modern Art/PS1. Grennan & Sperandio projects have been written about in books and journals, including the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Independent (London), Artforum, and Flash Art. Finally, the team is straying into television: Sperandio is creator and executive producer of ARTSTAR, the first reality television series set in the New York art world.

Product Description:

Kartoon Kings is the first monographic and comprehensive analysis of the graphic artwork of Simon Grennan and Christopher Sperandio. This work showcases a collection of full-color images excerpted from comic book projects, videos, billboards, and more of the artists’ collaborative public contributions created over the past fifteen years. To supplement the images an interview with the artists by Kristina Olson is included, along with essays by Joshua Decter and Paul Krainak.
