About this Art
Grown out of his love of roadside attractions, odditoriums, mystery spots and the like, Dunivant is driven to recapture the childhood wonder and danger he felt each summer in the musty corners of those shabby, cinderblock buildings that stand just off of the beaten path.
"The piece was created for said show, the lyrics I chose were "I'm an unzipped fly and I don't know why", "I got 96 tears in my 96 eyes" from "Human Fly" by The Cramps. These Human Fly's have been appearing in my work for a while and are little delinquents. The more-human of the two brothers was always jealous of his sister's ability to fly and all of the attention she received so he enjoyed torturing her. The older brother has his finger hanging out because it's what Lux would do. Or, he'd probably just have his dick out, but I thought this was funnier." - John Dunivant
Each print will be hand-finished with multiple layers of varnish by John Dunivant
John Dunivant is a painter and multimedia artist working in and around Detroit, Michigan. His most significant work, Theatre Bizarre, is an incomparably enveloping, art installation-interactive masquerade that began in the year 2000 as a completely illegal event in a neglected neighborhood of Detroit. It has since grown to become the largest immersive event of its kind in the world. He received a Kresge Fellowship in 2012 and was a recipient of a 2013 Detroit Arts Challenge grant through the Knight Foundation.
