This vibrant volume showcases the retro-religious paintings, drawings, and artwork created by Anshie Kagan in the last decade.
Anshie Kagan's art mixes comic, pop art, vintage, and retro styles with Jewish themes. This art collection showcases his paintings, drawings, and artwork created between 2010 - 2020. Anshie takes a satiric but respectful look at contemporary Jewish life in his art, and his work has something for everyone.
About the author
Anshie Kagan's ironic, often dark artwork covers a variety of motifs and themes and has a strong influence of the Pop Art movement of the 1950's. Iconic, ultra-Orthodox rabbinic leaders are depicted on bright, psychedelic backgrounds with the usual portrayal of a monotonal religious culture. Kagan created his "Modern Day Commandments" piece - two columns of five QR codes representing the Biblical Decalogue - with respect to the blend of technology and religion. Anshie's work, in the same vein as the Pop Art movement, helps to decrease the gap between "high art" and "low art" and eliminate the distinction between fine art and commercial methods.
