There’s this dude on the internet who makes art and it’s pretty great stuff. It’s exciting when that happens. Stumbling through blogs and the newest Instagrams, Tumblrs, and whatnots and what-have-yous and there it is — something awesome.
The work of Keith P. Rein is striking — yes, there is violence and there is nudity, but the sex and violence is mocking and light. It’s well crafted sex and violence. His piece ‘Bombs Away’ only feels explicit, but in fact it’s just a girl enjoying three frozen treats.
