Los Angeles based artist Plasticgod took to drawing the minute he picked up a pencil at two years of age. A graduate of Art Center College of Design in Pasadena his works are found in the collections of an extensive list of celebrities including Madonna, Michael Jackson and Hugh Hefner. His work is featured on the walls of MTV Real World: Hollywood and he recently completed a limited edition poster for Linkin Park.
Dubbed “The 21st Century Warhol” his popular “Heads” collection is his personal twist on celebrity caricatures, the collection is comprised of over 700 pop and political icons. A selection of these works will be exhibited in Minneatures. Lego figurines inspire the style of these quirky figure paintings, a pop culture icon in its own right. This solo show will be Plasticgod’s first exhibition in Minneapolis.
