A founding member of the notorious Chicago collective, The Hairy Who, Karl Wirsum’s style is defined by a graphic sensibility electrified with mordantly humorous imagery and color influenced by comic books, popular icons, Chicago blues, Japanese prints, and Mesoamerican pottery. An erotic, iconic slice of Americana and one of his most captivating characters, Baseball Girl is the embodiment of Wirsum’s distinct visual language. The artist has mounted three solo exhibitions with Derek Eller Gallery (New York), the most recent of which was on view during fall 2015.
Framing options are black or white painted wood, 7/8" wide flat face and 7/8" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
