The Neon Art of Tracey Emin

Dust Jacket Design: Gray 318

Porn Out of Context: Collage Work of Jonathan Yeo

Being that there is a myriad of subject matter available to artists and designers, I'm always turned off by any use of pornography or celebrity in art. That's why I was surprised to immediately like the work of painter/collage artist Jonathan Yeo.
