Roy De Forest’s works are considered to be part of the California Funk movement, like East Coast Pop Art, Funk was a response to the oppressive gospel of abstract expressionism that dominated the aesthetic canon and art schools of post-WWII America.

With a delightful lack of self-importance, Funk provided a welcome niche for iconoclastic figures such as De Forest known for his phantasmagorically chaotic images of cartoonish figures and cheerfully loony canines, rendered with a distinctive “paint drop kiss” technique. Roy Deforest is a true painting legend whose playful spirit and rich colourful palette endear his work to generations of collectors and art lovers.
