Todd Bienvenu paints contemporary quotidian scenes with a raw yet humorous honesty, underscoring his often graphic subject matter with thick, swiftly applied brushstrokes. Pulling scenes from his personal life -- music, sex, and late nights -- Bienvenu combines vibrant color play with expressive lines to add absurdity to the ordinary. In Garage Band, viewers are treated to a raucous moment of adolescent twilight as a three-piece rock band plays on in a suburban garage. Unclear whether the scene is imagined or real, Garage Band typifies Bienvenu's ability to paint his subjects with a unique vulnerability and kindness.
Framing option is black or white painted wood, 7/8" wide flat face and 7/8" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
