Peter Saul is known for his vivid, cartoon-like paintings that satirize American culture. Influenced by the Chilean surrealist painter Roberto Matta and by MAD magazine, Saul developed his unique neo-surrealist style in contrast to the abstract expressionist aesthetic that prevailed at the time. Through wide-ranging imagery, Saul’s darkly humorous works trenchantly comment on contemporary politics and culture.
