Erik van Lieshout

Fierce, idiosyncratic, often explicitly pornographic and violent, but also unadulteratedly humorous, Dutch artist Erik van Lieshout’s videos, installations, drawings, and paintings confront the viewer with the problems of urban life. Constructed from scrap materials and inspired by the subcultures that have evolved in the modern metropolis, the artist’s work draws from newspapers, cartoons, and directly off the streets themselves.
