Eric Joyner’s Fantastical Art Pays Homage to Robots and Cartoons in New Solo Show

The Editors

Machine Man Memories is the newest series of fantastical paintings by Joyner, of Robots and Donuts fame. Joyner’s work, which has been licensed from the likes of Disney, Warner Brothers, and the hit HBO show Silicon Valley, depicts the tenuous conflict between children’s toys and adulthood as a portrait of another reality. His work is characterized by his playful and surrealistic style that creates harmony between the mix of cartoon characters, especially Japanese tin robots and colorful donuts (directly inspired by the film Pleasantville) inserted in all kinds of landscapes from the Age of Dinosaurs to the bottom of the ocean.

“A Bigger Picture,” David Hockney’s sell-out exhibition, now in its final days at London’s Royal Academy of Arts, perfectly showcases the artist's multitude of styles. The more than 150 pieces on display, most of which date from the last decade, include oil paintings, charcoal drawings, films, photomontages, watercolors and Hockney’s famed iPad drawings.
