Steve Gianakos has been playing vulgarity and offensive humor against sophistication in his paintings and drawings for over 30 years. Using mostly old, non-specific cartoon graphics, rendered through a mechanical process, Gianakos portrays the human condition as an absurd interplay of sexuality and psychological fragmentation. His work is included in several museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
