New art by Kiwi pop surrealist Michael Kennedy

Auckland-based pop surreal artist, Michael Kennedy, paints adorable zombie turnips, donut-obsessed beasts and saccharine-laden creatures. I had the pleasure of working with him last year on curating the group exhibit, Beauty Meets the Bizarre. Merging classical oil painting techniques with an imagination that alludes to a more cartoon world, perusing his works definitely makes one happy. Disconcertingly, too happy.
