An Update with Cahill Wessel

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 25, 2013
Cahill Wessel is an artist working out of the San Francisco Bay Area. His work is equal parts surreal, grotesque and kitschy (i.e. all kinds of amazing). In his own words: 'When I'm not fighting super villains in far off places, I'm busy drawing pictures of this crazy world we live in. It is a world of great wonder, limitless chaos, and exceptional beauty. My work attempts to explore our modern circumstance and the situations we encounter everyday.'

One of the standout galleries in Los Angeles, HVW8, just opened a new exhibition by creative director, designer, and fine artist Kevin Lyons titled Shits & Giggles. Wait, its more of a "collection of Art Stuff Loosely formulated to Make A Show." That is a good description, or better yet, "works on paper, cloth, and glass exploring the far reaching positive influences of St. Ides Premium Malt Liquor on Hip-Hop culture." There we go.
