John Lurie.

August 10th, 2010 · 1 Comment

John Lurie is perhaps best known for his band, The Lounge Lizards, and his work composing the scores for over 20 movies, including Get Shorty and Clay Pigeons. Lurie began painting after suffering from a tragic illness which kept the artist mostly confined to his home. Lurie’s most recent exhibition at Gallery Brown in Los Angeles ended on August 5th, but his most expansive exhibition was at the Watari Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo in early 2010. The exhibition was titled “You Are Here” and featured over 100 of the artists work. Lurie’s paintings are haunting and packed with plenty of emotion that surely must stem from his isolated state. Here are a few examples from the “You Are Here” exhibition.
