"Want To See A Sad Boy Smile? Pay Him" is a 78 page book featuring selected pieces from Miami based artist GREATeclectic's eponymous series of work that culminated in his debut solo exhibition at Studio 900 in Atlanta, GA.
In "Want To See A Sad Boy Smile? Pay Him," his second book, GREATeclectic's pieces are pastiches – whole in-and-of themselves but even more so in context of one another. Pop & Politics are alive and well-contented bedfellows in this world. The personal space stands as the preeminent public place of judgment. Shadows dance in rigid rhythmic formation with neon strobes. The entire world coalesces into a kaleidoscopic cultural landscape… where we are presented with our own selves from before the mass-mediated mirror of Pop life.
