David Stoupakis’ works are macabre in nature, partly due to his troubles with complications at birth and learning disabilities. What some considered a hindrance, opened a space for Stoupakis to develop a distinctive artistic style.

Master of the macabre, Chet Zar, has a new and very unique show coming Saturday, may 16th, 2009 titled When Worlds Collide. Unique because, “it will feature new works by myself and my pops (James Zar),” Chet explains. “It should be a wild show since his visionary/fantasy works are pretty much the opposite of my gloom and doom stuff! Anyway, I am super excited about showing with my dad and the new pieces I am working on are definitely my strongest and most detailed paintings to date.” Looks like talent runs in the family.

These Predicaments by pop surrealist David Stoupakis recently opened at Los Angeles' Corey Helford Gallery. For his second solo exhibition at the Gallery, Stoupakis parlays his talent for the supernatural and macabre into dramatic narratives that reveal symbolic turning points and unexpected dilemmas. C'mon, getting stuck in a house definitely counts as an unexpected dilemma, no? A delicate balance of childhood innocence and haunting imagery, the series of oil-on-panel paintings and graphite drawings recounts grim fairytales of the decadent and demure. This new series marks a new direction for the artist, as Stoupakis employs a brighter color palette than before and unveiled his largest piece to date at the exhibition, which attracted a wealth of fans to its reception. Couldn't make it out? No worries, we've got your opening night photos right over here...

Macabre genius Chet Zar recently upgraded to a larger format printer, allowing him to finally create larger prints of some of his popular pieces, Black Magick (which you can see at In the Land of Retinal Delights: The Juxtapoz Factor) and I Want You. Zar also included new pieces from a couple of his most recent shows, We Are The Shadows and Ugly American. These are the first prints issued from these shows. “I am really proud of these prints,” Zar told Juxtapoz. “They just look really sharp due to some new printing techniques I have picked up as well as a higher quality paper.” Grab your new Chet Zar print now at chetzar.com
