josh keyes

My friend Jesse Lortz just turned me on to the work of artist Josh Keyes. I love his use of realism to portray surreal scenes of our possible future. His work is a beautiful warning of what could be to come. Keyes is originally from Tacoma, WA and I feel a lot of the Northwest coming through in his work - from the animals depicted to his use of Northwest Native imagery like the totem pole. The end result is somehow familiar, even though what he is showing us is (hopefully) a worst case scenario.
