The art of Norbert Bisky


Der jüngste Tag (2004).

At first glance Norbert Bisky‘s paintings aren’t so different from those of other artists with a similar complement of shirtless boys, until you notice curious details such as severed heads and limbs or hanging figures. I’ll be surprised if Dennis Cooper isn’t a fan. The bland style, rendering innocuous what might otherwise be too grotesque, reminds me of Eric Fischl‘s psychosexual explorations of suburban America, which may be an influence. Bukkake Tsunami below is a worthwhile addition to the Art of Ejaculation collection.
