You know him for his frolicking tikis, happy-go-lucky cyclops and giddy Gama-Gos. But you may not recognize Tim Biskup this go-round at Billy Shire Fine Arts. The work is darker than Biskup’s usual, both in shade and in subject. It’s like a beautiful Biskup netherworld. Plenty of the regular characters are here–although they may be impaled by swords or strangled by thigh-high wearing women–a giant dragon wields a machine gun and blood runs traffic cone orange.
If you ask very, very nicely, you can go in Billy Shire’s back room. We found the Old Biskup back there.
