Last Summer Evan Gruzis openned up his studio for a visit with B/D. His work struck a chord with me. It’s the way he takes “cheesy” tourist imagery, 80′s nostalgia, and advertisements; and then intellectually flips-that-shit to create paintings that deal with death, infinity, and desire. It was like he was reading my mind, because those are the first three things that occur to me when looking at an add for a cruise ship or a Caribbean resort. His work interested another website, sightunseen, and there’s a new studio visit where they get into creativity and the aspects of hallucinogenic perception.

Yup. That’s Charles Barkley. Yes, he’s in a space suit. Yes sir, he’s in outerspace with lens flares behind him. Yes ma’am, I know it’s awesome. What’s even more awesome than Charles Barkley in a spacesuit, in space with lens flares? Maybe a video of him in a animated, auto tuned rapping, and going bonkers. Be amazed by the full video after the jump.
