"The original was created for Copro Gallery’s 20th Anniversary in 2013. I’ve been involved in many shows with them and did this piece specifically in celebration of a cool show I did together with Tim Biskup and the Coop based on the love of anime and Japanese monsters.
This was probably the 3rd or 4th time I had “reconstituted” Gigantor or T28 as I tend to call him. Since it was a 60’s cartoon, I always thought it would be cool to use the character as a leftover from another age and was turned into something else. I depicted a house made from his head once and another time I had turned him into a tank/vehicle … quite surreal actually." - Glenn Barr

ABOUT Glenn Barr:
Glenn Barr's surreal creatures, specters and tragic characters live in a seedy universe, drenched in the grit and haze of a post-apocalyptic urban dreamscape. His Detroit work has been labeled Pop Surrealism, Pop Pluralism, Lowbrow, Regional, Outsider, Ashcan or as he coins the phrase “B Cultural-ism”. Barr finds inspiration in the city streets as well as from pop and counter cultures that infuse a familiarity in his many parallel realities. With a nod to old master painting, pulp art, and cartooning, Barr's paintings are mesmerizing in their narrative complexities and technical depth.
