'Beastie Boy' is one of the most interesting exhibitions that I have had the pleasure of attending. From the moment you enter the space, you are invited to appreciate the character of the artist.
Chameleons geckos and few striped spotted lizards and snakes catching flies buzzing around everywhere!
This large body of work was created through a mixture of Kurt Bosecke's rich imagination and his study of a range of animals. They have been blended together to create wonderful, playful characters, filled with emotion and detail.
A female gorilla girl with silly big eyes bouncing high up in the air with fist knuckles in the air in a biohazzard suit!
Kurt Bosecke began creating work from a very early age and would come home from school each day to draw. He struggled with communication and used sign language and picture cards to express himself.
Beastly projects are a lady chimpanzee old into a dragon happy half monkey half dragon with tusks and a man cursed into a dragon hissing half human half dragon with the mean looking legendary!
Now his language skills have greatly improved and this communication is integral to his art.
Beastie projects are a half Indian owl bird head and half beast gorilla primate monster creature with horns making gorilla sounds and ice dragon roaring
The titles for each of his works are wonderful and unique and provide an insight into his art.
Baboon sticking the mouth open and the monkey is crawling and looking up with the big eyes and the olive baboon looked stern the yellow monkey cuddling the baby and the grivet crawling and turtles are too!
