Masters of the Art Gallery: He-Man Meets Warhol (And Kinda Duchamp) #ArtTuesday

Speaking of what is and isn’t art, somewhere between Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol, copies and readymades found a place in fancy art galleries. And as soon as something is in a fancy art gallery, it finds a place in art criticism. And as soon as any kind if newfangled avant-garde conceptual technique finds its way into art criticism, it gets taught in art school. And once it’s taught in art school you get repainted Masters of the Universe action figures as art. And for that, we can be thankful. Here’s more from JUXTAPOZ:

This is going to be one of the drops of the year. When Madsaki started to go down memory lane of his youth in his show 1984 this past fall at Kai Kai Kiki Galley, one of the paintings and sculptures that stood out was his He-Man and the Masters of the Universe inspired works. Perhaps we didn’t realize what a cult following the series had (like MASK and TMNT), but the way Madsaki re-imagined the series was a fresh and rather brilliant in the vein of his work.
