I thought of today’s artist using the keyword: humor. I’ve known about Adam Mysock ever since junior year of high school, I love his work for its satire on old masterpiece paintings and mixing it with crazy different new cultural ideas. He is an amazing painter who will paint a master level painting and add aliens or crazy expressions, which is his own sense of humor.
Painter Adam Mysock holds a BFA degree in Painting and Art History from Tulane University and an MFA from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. In collaboration with his studio practice, he has taught at the university level for more than 10 years—most recently as a Senior Professor of Practice at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Mysock’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and is in private collections throughout the world, including those of Thomas Rusche, Beth Rudin DeWoody, and the 21C Museum. In 2012, he was awarded first prize “Best in Show” in the Ogden Museum’s first annual Louisiana Contemporary Juried Exhibition. He was also included in the 2013 South edition of New American Paintings.
