About the Work
Ted Gahl's eclectic approach to painting fuses humor and art historical reference while shifting between figuration and abstraction. Sometimes working with the drawings he made as a child, Gahl's fresh wit has even lead him to landing his work on the HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm. This particular print is based on a photo he took of a German tourism shirt that caught his attention on Beverly Boulevard in LA, where the expressive eyes are both cartoonish and disquieting.
Ted Gahl (b. 1983, New Haven, CT) has mounted solo shows at Halsey McKay (East Hampton), Dodge Gallery (New York), Cooper Cole (Toronto), V1 (Denmark), Dodge (New York), Mier Gallery (Los Angeles), Jacob Bjorn (Denmark), and Brand New Gallery (Milan). Group exhibitions include shows at Alon Segev Gallery (Tel Aviv), Steven Zevitas (Boston), Zach Feuer (New York), Suzanne Geiss Company (New York), ZieherSmith & Horton (New York) and Night Gallery (Los Angeles). Ted Gahl co-founded the collective PAT (Place and Time) with artists Gregory Kalliche and Benjamin Niznik. He was listed one of Huffington Post’s Artists To Watch in 2015 and received a residency at the Fountainhead Residency in February 2015. He received his BFA from Pratt Institute in 2006 and his MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 2010.
Authentication & Resale
This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist.

All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
