Spotlight: Ashley Bickerton

Ashley Bickerton is an artist who has been around since the 1980s, creating work that critiques capitalist culture. He was born in Badbados and has resided in Bali almost for the past two decades. His style can be described as tropical surrealism, as it blends in colorful elements of tropical places with often grotesque figures.

His earliest work, which I have encountered in numerous art history books but never really connected the dots until now, looks like machinery, splattered with logos, but have no apparent purpose.

You can learn more about Bickerton at The Sonnabend Gallery.
