The Art of Coop


The Art of Chris Cooper aka Coop
While his work is closer to infamous than famous (yes, he’s the one who professes a passion for “lesbo devil girls”), the 34-year-old Coop magnificently breathes life — and dark humor! — into wacky images of screw-happy robots, decadent Satan-types, over-the-top female vamps, and drooling bug-eyed creatures driving hot rods, all of which typically leap off the page.

Anyone who, of course, has seen sci-fi comic books and movies from the ‘50s, or taken a peek at his father’s collection of Playboy magazines as an adolescent can immediately spot Coop’s influences. His art borrows heavily from artist Wally Wood (of E.C. Comics fame) and hot-rod maker Ed “Big Daddy” Roth (the guy who created “Rat Fink”).

The artist Coop and one of his 13 individual 6 by 6ft panels, designed to flow together and form a single, huge 78 ft. painting that fill all the walls of the gallery surrounding the viewer. It can be seen in person Aug. 14 - Sept. 18 in Los Angeles. His show is titled "Parts With Appeal' - gallery details at Coop's web site.

I like your blog, and will add it to "my favorites". I am new to blogging, but not new to car clubs. I have furnished custom made car badges to dozens of car clubs all over the country. I have a web site that I feel you will find both interesting and informative. Please pay me a visit when you have time.
