The Gif Connoisseur
famed illustrator Norman Rockwell painted The Connoisseur for The Saturday Evening Postmagazine. It shows a man standing in front of a Jackson Pollock-esque style painting at a museum or gallery. Today, that same character, in his matching suit, is back to see a more modern form of art known as the animated GIF.

Currently showing at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City is Alex Gross’s exceptional solo show, “Future Tense.” The paintings Gross has produced for this show explore the idea of a world inundated by advertising propaganda which desensitize and disillusion his subjects becoming a warning for our already technology and brand obsessed society. Gross is pleading us to exist in the present moment rather than waste our time in the cloud. ”Future Tense" is on display until November 8th, 2014. You can see more of the gifted artist’s work below.
