Publisher: 9mm Books
A monograph of Sas Christian’s work through 2006, encapsulated in an emotionally intense, high-gloss volume. Strong images render the intent of flirty, ballsy, weepy, punk, Catholic, no-nonsense, funny, intelligent, unusual, independent, oddball, outsider, contemporary girls. A portfolio of life experiences from boarding schools, religious training and a self-struggle to break out of the old school. Moods inspired from anime, Tamara De Lempicka and Mark Ryden are reflected in this outstanding collection of oil and acrylic paintings on canvas, board and linen. Pages are laid out in various formats including single images, images with an associated zoom detail, and full spread bleeds. Foreword by Long Gone John, introduction by Justin Giarla. Includes an image index and an artist’s statement. A must-have for Sas Christian fans and collectors of the expanding world of popular contemporary/lowbrow art. Hardcover, color.
