Greg Haberny is known for his wildly styled, spontaneous work. His background in filmmaking enables him to offer strong visual clues, for example when he regenerates vintage comics, pin-up girls and baby boomer advertising.
“His work is a strong personal expression and involves a very physical process mixing comic characters with dirt, spray paint, vintage pin-ups, old films, advertising and pop culture to create hugely imaginative pieces.” Art Republic
Haberny says he likes to “work with everything . . . . screws, nails, wire, tons of glues and epoxies, glass, shredded plastic, firearms, spray paint, oils, watercolours, enamel car paints, acrylics, and truck loads of dirt…Just about anything that I can get my hands on.”
These works are from the Lyons Wier Gallery in New York, including this last creation, a Haberny self-portrait. Click on any image to go to the gallery website for the title and more information on each piece.
