Carter Kustera- Painter/Illustrator

At once poignant and witty, Fabulous Anger is a provocative body of work that explores the commodification of violence by combining image and text in a format familiar to advertising. Through his politicization of the fashion layout Kustera takes a critical look at the way violence is presented through the media and questions our threshold for its acceptable presentation.


Kustera’s previous work has been included in many influential international exhibitions including two Venice Biennales. Additionally his signature artwork has been featured as illustration (for Progressive Insurance’s award winning annual report), computer animation (for the rock band U2’s Pop Mart tour) wall installations (for Barney’s co-op stores nation wide) and product design and image branding (for O.R.E. ORIGNIALS and distributed nation wide and the UK).

Some of the work Carter did for Barneys Co-Op (available for commission too... I've been trying to get in contact with him to make one for me but his website isnt up yet)





If you go into a Jonathan Adler furniture store or a Barneys Co-Op, these are everywhere in cute pastel colors with ironic little sayings on the bottom :p

thanks for sharing, cutxpaste, very interesting...
i like the ironic and somewhat grotesque undertones and while i'm not usually a fan of a stiff painting style like his, i really admire the balance and proportions within the images as a whole.

i think in the irony in his work is what makes me like it the most...like you, i prefer painting with more loose, less calculated brushstrokes, but i find carter's work really striking.

his website, carterkustera.com is still a work in progress. i emailed him back at the end of april about commissioning a portrait and he said the website would be up soon. but artists are busy peope :p

I love the killed by art and purple power I think the simplicity is really effective and gets right to the point.
I've never seen high-fashion goods this way either, as illustrations. I'm always just used to seeing them as photographs... I wonder if they end up losing their 'luxury' or importance. I find myself focusing more on the figures.
