Suzanne Zahr and L+B Design Presents Kosta Kulundzic’s
“Bloody Icons!” new Exhibit in the Pacific Northwest
French-Serbian Artist Returns to the United States
Three Tech Moguls cringe and cower in the frightful shadow of a furious dragon! Kim Kardashian hobnobs with St. Sebastian and an apocalyptic abomination as a bound and perplexed Kanye West looks on! Judith stands ready to behead the hell out of Holofernes, Tarantino-style, Grand Guignol, without the slightest remorse (and more than a little Grindhouse flair)! Buckle-up, because you’ve entered the world of Kosta Kulundzic - a deeply spiritual yet profanely B-movie realm where angelic figures coexist with bare-knuckled brawlers, hulking monstrosities stalk the same earth as tattooed, scantily-clad muses, and pas-sion and attitude are always the order of the day! Part and parcel of the lowbrow art school and deeply pious Christian imagery, Kulundzic somehow manages to enter a new level of the soulfully obscene, the salaciously reverent!
Kulundzic has had shows in Paris, Belgrade, Sarajevo, Brussels, and Honolulu, and his new show, “Bloody Icons!”, opened at the SZ Gallery on October 6th, where he debuted the piece “The Desperate Plea of Modern Technology Fac-ing St George’s Dragon”, featuring Seattle’s very own Bill Gates, Paul Allen & Jeff Bezos.
LIVE PAINTING PERFORMANCE will take place at the SZ Gallery at 2PM on Saturday, October 8th. All are welcomed.
