“I Forgot How Much I Liked All Of Them” a painting inspired by the 2000 film “Battle Royale” by Kristen Liu-Wong
The alarmingly colorful works of Los Angeles-based artist Kristen Liu-Wong depict scenes of strange sexual encounters, killers doing their dirty work, as well as all sorts of other weirdness. And I’m completely obsessed with her brightly-colored mayhemic paintings.
“Satan Worship in the Suburbs”
“She Decided to Be With A Bad Boy For Once”
As the title of this post should strongly indicate, the images from Liu-Wong’s captivating catalog of work are definitely NSFW, and feel like a hybrid of cartoon art crossed with classic Japanese erotica commonly referred to as “shunga” or “spring pictures” (which dates as far back as the 1600s). Liu-Wong’s vivid imagination is beautifully unfettered and her paintings that include visions of kinky sex, murderous stalkers and disembowelment seem almost cheerful, thanks to her liberal use of bright colors that look like they came into Liu-Wong’s possession by way of a time-traveler from the “neon” 90s. Many of the paintings featured in this post are also for sale. Click here for more information on that.
“Don’t Pet My Dog”
More colorful murderous mayhem after the jump…
