The Corey Helford Gallery website only goes as far as 10/31/09 for their upcoming shows but there is this tiny picture in the artist section ~



Is this new? It doesn't look familiar to me, is the new direction SHAG meets Mad Men meets Cirque Du Soleil?

Bora Boris, yes, that is a tiny snippet of the new work.

A few of the new panels were on preview at California State University, Long Beach, where Shag graduated from, on September 13 - 17, 2009. They are large Giclée canvases, like the ones from "The Flesh is Willing" show at the Laguna Art Museum.

Shag's take on Bosch's "The Garden of Earthly Delights" was also on display at CSULB. The new work is the same size as the Bosch piece, with dark colors and dreamlike imagery. I thought the work was completely recognizable as Shag, wildly imaginative, somewhat nightmarish (in a Shag style), and a refreshing new direction for Shag and his audience. I think most people will like it. There just seems to be a wider range of images and darker colors.

There is also a new book coming out, "Autumn's Come Undone" on October 15, 2009 from Baby Tattoo Books.

More of an evolution than a new start. Interesting though, especially as it looks similar to the old style, makes the character seem a little more creepy and wrong.

His work appears to be developing a Hieronymus Bosch feel. In fact, I think I even remember him mentioning Hieronymus Bosch's name a few years back when he spoke in Laguna.

SHAG is Dead! Long Live SHAG!

i have always been a big fan of the clever humor of his work, despite always having tried to hate his work because of his monster-pop-ularity!

Shag is THE MAN. He totally GETS IT. nobody does it better.

Still and yet it takes a large set of dingle-berries to kick the cash cow to the curb. Granted he's not reinventing the wheel, but i say "good on ya mate" to young Josh as he emerges from the cocoon and spreads his wings!

And so again i say unto ye:

SHAG is Dead! Long Live SHAG!

With the muted colors and the some what morbid topics it reminds me of Charles Adams. Interesting stuff.

WOW!
Awesome new work!
Texas Steer tanks
and ponds full of maker's mark whiskey!
I think SHAG just hit another HomeRun!

that trip to see those Bosch's in person
allowed these two masters to meet for a short time
and MAN!
the results are astonishing!
Surreal,Spooky,and Fun!

Smudgepot!

In the work titled "Badlands," what is the naked guy in the children's pool doing?

to me it looks the same? ive always liked the guys work! the rear artwork on the rear cover of the bomboras head shrinking fun record is my favorites though! all of the fake board games etc. its tru people think hes minimalist and try to hate him, but i'll tell you right now, that trying to recreate what he does as a tattoo is one of the hardest things to do! the guys style is almost impossible to master! people always try to imitate but generally fail. i was hoping for more of the style i mentioned before, but i dig this, like i said, not tooooooo different. also as far as doh is concerned, i would think josh doesnt worry bout that too much anymore?? 60k is pretty damn good!!! on sale!!!!! by the way my handdrawn decks were 100$$$$$$$ hahahahahaha!
