Colorado artist John Fudge was a popular and prolific painter for decades until his death in 1999. His work was collected far and wide and by such notable places as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Denver Art Museum. Fudge was very much an artist of his era, borrowing pop themes and assembling them into works that fall somewhere between contemporary gothic and cartoon modern. Interestingly, they hold up well in an era where comics are cool and horror gets hotter all the time.
