About this title


A monograph of Anthony Ausgang's artwork from 1980 through 2006, a mind-altering high-octane visual joy ride through the artist’s oeuvre. Starting with his early Kustom Kulture work on classic hot rods and ending with his current psychedelic Lowbrow paintings, this lavishly illustrated book includes essays by pop culture pundits Carlo McCormick and Chris Pfouts. Divided into three sections, the book first covers his paintings which comment on the human condition with animal cartoon characters in semi-realistic environments. The second section showcases his paintings of and on cars. The third part chronicles his fabled Improved Art series with insouciant characters paintied on thrift and antique store art. This is the first book devoted exclusively to his work.
