El Grio Paints Banal Objects from the 1980’s & 90’s

I’m excited by the depiction of everyday objects. I find their recognizable forms comforting. As someone who loves bold shape design, I also love the simple, graphic nature of El Grio’s work. His subjects aren’t the most rousing, but when he adds his own touch – like  his characterization of the Trix Bunny, for instance – it infuses the objects with his visual language and opinions.
