Unpredictability is best enjoyed when you can expect the end result to be rewarding. California native Brandon Bird encapsulates this concept though his paintings. By using pop culture themes from the past and present along with the accompaniment of peculiar storytelling, each of his paintings pull you into his subconscious intellect. One painting portrays the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles surrounding Natalie Portman with the most horrified look on her face. Another painting shows two men playing Sega Genesis but hindering Harrison Ford (who happens to be the best shooter with a laser pistol in all the galaxy), from joining in the fun. For some, Bird’s work brings a secret enjoyment knowing an inside joke has been shared between observer and artist. For others, it’s a “mind-gasm” for all who appreciated pop culture significance growing up.
