Last week we purchased an original Chet Zar painting, “Blockhead” (above). Then, we acquired the painting “Interloper 2″ (below).
“Blockhead” and “Interloper 2″ are works that contain many defining staples of Chet Zar’s beloved, dark, and emotional portraits. These pieces were created circa 2005-2006 making them some of the original examples Chet’s signature archetype.
At the time of this writing, Chet Zar is one of the most prominent figures of the “Lowbrow”/Pop Surrealist movement that has been thriving since the early millennium. Chet’s paintings have been trumpeted in the pages of every major publication linked to the Lowbrow movement including Hi-Fructose Magazine and Juxtapoz Magazine. Chet’s work as an artist in movies is also extensive (Both Hellboy films, The Ring, Men In Black 2, Cabin Boy, Planet Of The Apes to name a few).
