Description

This book reveals the details and backgrounds of the new paintings Mark Ryden has created for his 2020 show at Emmanuel Perrotin’s gallery in Shanghai, organized in collaboration with Kasmin Gallery, but also some of his most iconic masterpieces, showcasing yaks and others creatures of his own mythology. From his Snow Yak to his very personal interpretation of the California bear, here are over forty works from more than 20 years as Mark Ryden has populated an incredible “pop surrealist” bestiary of half-animal, half-plush creatures.

Freely inspired by the Rushton toys that enjoyed their heyday in America in the ’60s and ’70s, these creatures are now the object of a cult worship among fans of the artist, and are one of his marks of distinction in the world of contemporary art.

With a statement from the artist and an essay by Linda Tesner, this pink book will become an instant classic for lovers of contemporary art and surrealism.

Pink cloth, onlaid color cover plate. “A portrait gallery of enchanted characters that embody the artist’s meticulously realized signature blend of archetype, kitsch, and narrative mysticism.”
