Gossel Greg

After graduating in Graphic Design at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, Greg Gossel (Baldwin, Wisconsin, 1982) created a form of painting directly inspired by Pop Art, in which we find characters from the golden age of cartoons, the logos of petroleum corporations and portraits of famous politicians. Using a simple and immediate visual language, Gossel tackles political and social issues that have characterised the recent history of the United States, such as the abuse of women and minorities. It is no coincidence that, among the recurrent images in the artist’s painting, there are weeping women or icons that are emblematic of progressive politics, such as J. F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King.
