Our Studio Sunday feature this week is Deborah Kass. Kass is a contemporary American artist who utilizes mixed media and appropriative imagery to explore pop art, art history and identity.

 

Kass’ studio looks beautiful in this photo – well lit, and clean with nice wood flooring. I like the way that the artist’s works fit into the space, as well. At first glance, this studio space almost looks like just a living room in…

Baldessari’s current studio space is located in Santa Monica, California. As he often uses appropriated images in his artworks, Bladessari’s studio houses a fairly…

Check out the studio space of Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami! Murakami is internationally known for his sizeable pieces often using repetitive patterns and duplicated images which emulate and anime, pop-art “superflat” style of cartoon artwork. To accommodate the scale and assembly-line type style of working required by his art, Murakami usually employs studio assistants to help him create the artwork, a few of which you…
