About the Author

Isabel Samaras is best known for her lush and meticulously painted riffs on works by Old Masters that send up pop culture icons of the 70s. Her ribald images are woven with references to classic horror movies, ancient mythology, cheesy television, and childhood fables. Familiar to a broad audience through publications like Juxtapoz magazine, her work has also been featured in the books Vicious, Delicious and Ambitious: 20th Century Women Artists; Pop Surrealism: The Rise of Underground Art; and Weirdo Deluxe: The Wild World of Pop Surrealism and Lowbrow Art (also from Chronicle Books). She has opened her studio to the television shows Internet Tonight, SexTV, Ooh La La, and the documentary film The Lowdown on Lowbrow. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.


From painting homoerotic fantasies on vintage lunch boxes (The Lone Ranger and Tonto in flagrante) to bawdy television trays (starring Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock), Samaras went on to paint in oil on wood, using the techniques of the old masters to enliven the stuff of fairy tales.
