Super Mario boy

Blogger Shahin Ismail-Beigi recently came upon Alex Paik’s work in the just published New American Painters Mid-Atlantic edition and interviewed him via email. The interview is on the blog conversations, etc. Alex, if you don’t know his work, paints scenes based on video games, but puts it all in unlikely pastel colors. The resulting abstractions suggest a crazy relationship to space as well as a fan’s desire to share his boyish enthusiasm. Anyway, it’s a pretty good interview, and I know some of you are fans of his work.
