The Art of Joris Goulenok

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 21 Dec 2010

We love an artist in 2010 that we can't get ahold of. Joris Goulenok is that kind of artist. The work is simple and clean, but catchy. Here you have a scene of someone getting the crap beat out of them, but the pastels kind of make it all seem very gentle, like its a happy crap-beaten-out-of-you scene.

Yet in these simple pieces, done with acrylics on both canvas and paper, have a lot of denisty to them as well. There is a lot to take in, even in that simple piece above.

Joris has a FLICKR page, but if you know Joris, have him contact us. Thanks to Brown Paper Bag.
